A combination approach will help. Fractional nonablative lasers can give you improvement with a series of treatments, along with microneedling/prp and proper skin care to improve complexion and prevent hyperpigmentation.  I suggest seeing a cosmetic dermatologist who is a specialist in skin care, lasers, and scars.  Best, Dr. Emer.
