Pixel and Erbium Yag Laser for Ice Pick Acne Scars?

My doctor suggested that I do Pixel laser over my whole face and then the Erbium Yag laser on my ice pick scars (cheek area).

How effective is this approach? Will this improve my skin by 50%? Is there a possibility of skin discoloration being that the Erbium is only done over a certain area?

Pixel for acne scars

The Erbium laser is an excellent choice for acne scars. I will often stack 6 to 12 at a high frequency. It is very deep but the results are phenomenal and as a plastic surgeon, I am comfortable dealing with the postoperative care.
