  4. I had laser treatment on my face (a week ago) due to acne scarring that I'd had for 14 years. 5 days after when the swelling had gone, I can still see the scars. My face went red with a bit of blood patches here and there, it's as though the laser had hardly touched my skin. From viewing videos and looking at photos before I'd had it done, the areas didn't become bloody/scabby, just red. I think for the laser to really work, you need quite a lot of passes to penetrate the skin which is why t
