First off, they're probobly not scars. You can't hide acne scars with foundation. Scars are indents and not red marks. If all you have are red marks, they should normally fade within 3-6 months. If you can't wait that long, I'd first get your active acne under control by seeing a dermatologist and then perhaps asking them what you could do. I've had a lot of at-home chemical peels done and it worked wonders for my face. I used to have bright red marks covering my entire face but now they're fading and some are hardly noticeable anymore. It's probobly the best thing I could have done for it. I'm also on Retin-a which speeds up the fading process. I personally wouldn't waste my time with microdermabrasion...it seems to be more of a mild exfoliant and something to simply tone the skin rather than to get rid of red marks. You'd have to do a lot of sessions to get any kind of result. So far i've done 6 chemical peels and my skin is looking the best it's looked in years. There are a lot of different kinds of peels though so you might want to look into it. I'm doing a low percentage TCA peel and i've gotten the best results with that so far.
