There are several modalities that may help your skin, but no one is perfect. I use erbium lasers to sometimes plane it down and use Thermscan lasers to buidl the collagen underneath. LaViv may be another method to inject you own fibroblasts back into the area to soften the pitting as well. This would be an off-label use. Good luck.

Hi MCB. Your case looks pretty straight forward. Here are a few suggestions to consider. The fractional technologies are newer, but not necessarily better. They do usually have less downtime. The old adage "no pain no gain" prevails in laser resurfacing as well, so the less downtime, usually the less effective the procedures will be.
Dermabrasion is a surgical procedure. Do not confuse it with microdermabrasion. Good luck.
