Treatment for Mild Acne Scarring on Sensitive Skin?

I'm 25 years old and I have slight acne scarring from when I was younger. I have sensitive skin so I am wondering what would be a gentle treatment for me? I would like to have this done as soon as possible. Thank you.

You might consider a laser device such as the Smooth-beam, Pixel, YAG, micro-dermabrasion, saline subcision or a light chemical peel. You need to know before-hand, however, that there is a possibility that your skin may become even more sensitive after any such treatment. I would suggest evaluation with a board certified specialist to discuss your options.

Good luck.
