Particularly with darker skin, the Infini is your best treatment for acne scars.
Best Treatment for Acne Scars
The best treatment for Acne scars is the Fraxel (1550) laser. You will need 3 to 5 sessions from the photos that I see for your scarring. It is difficult to assess your skin type form the photo. If you are a darker complexion than you are an excellent candidate for the Ematrix laser. The Ematrix laser is made by Candela laser and is an excellent laser designed to heat the skin and produce new collagen via radiofrequency heat. I have had many patients with type IV and V skin who have had great cosmetic results. I would recommend you find a dermatologist in your area that is experienced with these lasers and cosmetic dermatology.
Best Treatment for Acne Scarring
redness and swelling eliminated within 2 to 4 days after each treatment. Fraxel is outstanding for fine wrinkles, mild skin laxity, irregular pigmentation, acne scars, surgical scars, enlarged pores, stretch marks, age spots and Rosacea. It can be used safely on the face, neck, hands, arms, and chest.
