How to remove these acne scars? (Photo)

Skin type IV and acne scars are a challenge
Acne scars and active acne
Laser therapy for acne scars in the form of CO2 like a CO2RE by Syneron-Candela could be helpful in lighter skin tones. For acne with a reddish color I suggest Vbeam and for scars with brown pigment the Alexandrite q-switched laser helps improve the color. In rare cases laser hair removal helps with acne due to the hair follicle getting congested with sebum which creates more issues with acne.
If you didn't have downtime for a couple of sessions of VI peel then three to six vitalize peels by Skin Medica would be helpful. Since you still have some breakouts I would recommend bi-weekly acne facials with our medical aesthetician.
Hope this helps. Good luck.
