If you wait, the scar would automatically mature or turn white. Do not be anxious at it might take even up to a year for scars to get mature. Yes, pulsed dye laser is a good alternative to ablate the vessels under the scar but the cost of therapy can be pretty high with a session costing a few thousand. I would advice you to wait and consider laser therapy only if it remains immature or red even after 1 year.
