There are many options but likely you will need a combination approach with peels, skin care, lasers, and microneedling.  Please see a cosmetic dermatologist with experience.  Best, Dr. Emer.

A combination of laser treatment. bleaching creams and sun protection can get rid of dark acne spots.

Darker skin types and skin that tans easily are more likely to get dark spots following and acne breakouts.  I like to use the PicoSure Laser, bleaching agents such as the Obagi NuDerm Sytem, Lytera, Elure or the Cosmion Mask to bleach post inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) following acne breakouts.  A big hat and sun protection are also very important to prevent PIH and to protect the skin during treatment.
