Best acne scar options. Unsure about using a laser again. (photo)

Currently at home dermarolling 1.5 mm started using Retin A Micro this week Dermatologist reccomended doing skin pen or CO2 laser, but I'm scared. I've Had chemical peel before and broke out all over I've had I think it's called the Fraxel Laser twice before at a medical spa, and feel it improved some areas and worsened the texture of my skin in others. I'm 30. Have also been quoted about 600 to use an eclipse micropen with using my blood as a growth factor. Any advice or options is helpful!!

A combination approach is needed to get the best outcome. I suggest you see an expert who can get you on a short and long term plan including lasers, fillers, subcision, and skin care. Please consult with a board certified dermatologist. Best, Dr. Emer
