What are my options for my raised acne scars on my nose? (photos)

I know laser isn't a good option because of my skin tone and I don't want to lighten the area first and attempt treatment. Can cortisone injections work? What other options do I have?

This can be treated with a combination of peels, skin care and microneedling/prp. I recommend getting a formal evaluation with an acne scarring expert. Erbium laser can be used on dark skin for even more improvement.  Best, Dr. Emer
