Sunscreen, time and laser treatments for marks from acne

A picture will tell a thousand more, a good high resolution one will tell two thousand. 
Bottom line- what colour are the marks. 
If you have ethnic skin type, then the marks maybe darker than your normal colour if so the plan is-

1. Control acne- this reduces chances of further marks
2. Sunscreen +++ to reduce production of melanin
3. Chemical peels such as gentle AHA , Lactic acid or Vitamin A peels
4. Option for lasers such as the Q switch pico, or nano 1064 lasers.

All the best

Marks on your face

If you could post a photo it would be very helpful because I don't know if the marks are red or brown.  If you have red spots then you should have the V-Beam done since this is the gold standard to reduce redness.  If the spots are dark then I would suggest using a bleaching cream and chemical peels.  Best, Dr. Green
