Red Marks left after acne - are they the beginning of scars??

I am a practicing dermatologist. Red scars after acne occur either from inflammation with dilated blood vessels as a part of that inflammation or due to early scar formation with dilated blood vessels. Topical medications do not work. Smoothbeam does not work (It is for atrophic scars). The best treatment is either pulsed dye laser or intense pulse light. Both of these procedures will go through the skin and destroy the dilated blood vessels. Tincture of time will also help.

I am confused. Totally confused...
