Fractional Laser Resurfacing for Acne Scars
Just because a practice is offering fractional laser resurfacing does not mean you will get good results. The person offering the procedure makes all the difference and in your situation, we would recommend a deep resurfacing (up to 1000 microns or 1 mm) because of the deep scars you have. This means significant anesthesia procedures (not just numbing cream) and a week of recovery.

Acne Scars with dark skin and eMatrix
I have had great success with the eMatrix laser. EMatrix consists of a laser that works via radiofreqency heat to build up new collagen in the scars. I love this laser not just for acne scars on the face but acne scars on the back. You must wait 6 months after finishing Accutane to have this laser. Please make sure to have a board certified dermatologist with a great deal of experience in lasers to have the best cosmetic results.
