What type of laser is effective to remove acne scars on a dark skin? (photos)

Hello, I had two halo laser sessions in 2015 to remove acne scars on my face. The results did not meet my expectations because I still have acne scars. Also, no one of my friends has noticed any improvement on my skin. Now after one year of the laser sessions, I have more scars. Also, I have pimples (especially on my forehead) from time to time. Thank you for your time!

Acne Scarring -- Requires a Combination of Fractional Laser Resurfacing, Fillers Like Bellafill, Subcision and Eclipse Micropen

Acne scarring can be treated with a combination approach of lasers (Vbeam for darker skin tones), peels, skin care, microneedling and fillers. I suggest consulting with an experienced cosmetic dermatologist. Best, Dr. Emer
