Possible Acne Scar Treatments? (photo)

Hello, I will be visiting some doctors very soon. I would like to get some consultation regarding possible treatments and costs, along with the total amount of time the treatments will take, so that I don't go in completely blind. Thank you.

If you go to a plastic surgeons office you have a few options for acne scars. There is micro laser peel and pro fractional laser and even a mini facelift to stretch out the skin and make the acne scars fade.

I think your scars are not very deep. The goal for you would be some more conservative treatments. I would consider laser resurfacing. But a multilayered approach could be the best option. You should think about learning about the difference between fractional and traditional resurfacing, active and deep fx.
