Acne scars can be treated with a number of different ways.  Chemical peels, Fraxel, and Ematrix are all excellent methods depending on your skin type.  If you have had side effects from the fractional laser it is best to find a board certified dermatologist to consult with.  It sounds like chemical peels may be very beneficial for you.
