In brief: Red marks from acne
If they are relatively recent, they may very well disappear on their own after the acne has been controlled for several months.
If they persist, you may benefit from ipl (intensed puled light). This is laser-like light treatment that helps reduce pigment. Consult a dermatologist to see if you are a candidate as some skin types are not.
