What would be the best treatment for my skin to achieve a better complexion? (Photos)

I am a 23 year old Asian American w/ acne scars, large pores, hyper pigmentation, w/ oily combo skin. I also want to fill in my expression lines around the mouth area but still want to have the same smile(lol)

Pico lasers, fractional lasers, microneedling RF, peels

I think a combination of treatments will give you the best results. For Asian and ethnic skin types, I like Picosure Focus fractional lasers, in some cases I use Infini RF with PRP (I use to like Fraxel 1927, however I do think that there are other devices that are better). Don't forget simple skin care by a general dermatologist. All the best, Dr Davin Lim. Brisbane. Australia.

Asian skin and Acne Scars

The best treatment for Asian skin would be a combination of fillers and eMatrix (FR) laser.  I treat so many Asian patients and the risk of hyperpigmentation is very great.  Please consult a dermatologist who is familiar with Asian skin and these lasers.  Best, Dr. Green

Facial Aging and Lasers like Fraxel/Clear + Brilliant, RF like VIVA, Peels, Fillers, Skin Care -- ASIAN SKIN DO RF TREATMENTS

I find that asian skin does very well with microneedling/RF like intensif or fractional RF like viva along with skin care, peels, and fillers.  Please see an expert.  Best, Dr. Emer.

Improving complexion

I would start off with a skin consultation. I think a good skin care regime with Retin A, a growth factor product, and sunscreen is a good start. I would consider chemical peels. If you want more aggressive treatment, laser resurfacing with the Fraxel would be helpful. NLF can be filled easily with filler, and any of the common fillers will do.
