Hi There, I'm a 27 year old caucasian female. I have had three sessions of what my cosmetic dermatologist refers to as "punch floats" for acne scars, which consisted of about 30 to 40 "punch floats" on each cheek, and 3 "punch grafts" on my left cheek. So far, I think she has done a good job. Now my cosmetic derm wants me to have a mid-level Obagi Blue peel. Based on the photos I have provided, is this the correct route I should take? Or should I look into getting C02 laser, or something else?
What Type of Procedure Should I Have Now That I Have Had Several Punch Float Sessions, and Three Punch Grafts? (photo)

Rx. for acne scarring
An Obagi peel might give you some improvement but not as much as a good laser resurfacing can do. A light laser is no better than a medium peel but a slightly more aggressive laser such as a fractional CO2 with aggressive settings will do more. You will have down tim with either so I would go for the laser.
