IS there ANY doctor out there that can save my skin? (photo)
I have suffered w/ severe cystic acne for years. Yes, I am guilty of 'picking at blemishes'. However, the bigger majority of my scars are from the acne & cysts. I have since gotten it under control; diet, water, hormones & the right skin care regimen has helped exponentially. So w/ all of that, I am now left w/ ugly huge pores, discoloration, ice-picked scars, & spider-veins. I think lasers will do more damage then good. Is there a doctor that would be willing to take this on? I'm hopeless...

Our office specializes in scar treatments of the face and body. The first step would be to begin topical therapy with Melarase creams and a retinoid; followed by sequential laser therapy and chemical peels (Melapeels) to improve surface texture and appearance.

A combination, sequentially treatment with bleaching creams, laser resufacing, micro-needling along with platelet-rich plasma gel can go a long way to improve your facial skin appearance.
