Finally making the decision to go in and get my acne red marks treated. What do you suggest?

After having red marks leftover from my acne on my cheeks for over a year now,  I am not waiting any longer for they to fade away.  Honestly it feels like most products I try just make it worse.  I've held back from going in for a medical procedure because of the cost,  but I'm finely realizing it's what I need to do. 

With that being said,  what is the most successful treatment for red marks?  I don't have that deep of scars,  just mainly bright red spots.  Most people wouldn't call them a scar but rather,  hyperpigmentation. I'm looking into laser treatment,  microdermabrassion,  and light therapy.  

For anyone who has tried any of these   what do you suggest?  U am going to Hawaii in 45 days and would like to see some progress before then! 

Ps,  sorry for any typos.. On my phone!

I've heard that IPL is the best treatment for red marks, but you need lots of treatments. I only had 2 recently and it wasn't enough.
