Based on my personal experience, such red marks fade with time. Some of them are stubborn though. I had a could of red marks which stayed there for over 6 months! It sucked big time. However, they usually heal on their own. Now you can start with Retin A, lowest strength which is 0.25%. That probably would not be too harsh. One thing, you can try chemical peels. Something like jessner peel will work beautifully for you.
