Laser resurfacing and before and afters
If you could provide the before and after photos, that would be helpful. Also what laser was use? Settings? What did you want to achieve with the treatment? We can certainly guide you if you state what you do not like about your features and come up with a solution.

Laser resurfacing acne scars is a balancing
act! The deeper and more aggressively you go the more potential for improvement
but also the greater the risks and side effects (such as scaring caused by the
treatment itself, persistent redness or pigment change). There are many
different types of lasers that can be used for resurfacing, many different
settings that can be chosen for each laser. If your laser resurfacing did not
give you any improvement and at the same time did not cause any problems, you
may be a candidate for a more aggressive laser, or more aggressive settings. In
addition to resurfacing acne scars can sometimes be improved with other
treatments as well; subcission, punch grafting, demal fillers. Visit with a
dermatologist with specific experience in treating acne scars so you can
discuss all the options. Also take with you information on the type of laser
and settings used in your original treatment.
I am assuming that you had laser to help improve your acne scars. It would be very helpful to know what your pre-treatment photo looks like and what kind of treatments you have had so far. "Resurfacing" is not a specific enough description to know what you've had done..there are many laser modalities.
If your concern is acne scars I would recommend finding a good dermatologist or plastic surgeon that can offer you a combination of treatments ranging from fractional laser to micro-needling and / or fillers.
