Acne scars in Toronto
I think the first step for you would be to consult with a few doctors in Toronto that have experience treating acne scars. I don't think you need to travel to Australia to be helped. It sounds like you have done a lot of research already and you're right - combination therapy works best. You have have some superficial cysts or large milia in the photos that need to be removed before they become persistent or scar. Your scars are fairly deep, so aggressive fractional resurfacing should likely be a part of your treatment plan.
Best to you, Dr Norcom
Acne Scarring Treatment
Thank you for your question. If you haven't tried microneedling that in combination with chemicl peels would be a great start to start targetting that acne scarring. Please consult with a licenced practioner to be evaluated and see what other options there may be for you.

Treatment for Acne Scars
Treating acne scars is difficult and all acne scars are different. Acne scars vary in size, depth, color and number. Deep, large acne scars often are improved best by excising them. You trade a large acne scar for a very small, linear scar after it heals. The remainder of the acne scar treatment is dictated the size and color of the scar as well as your skin type. Different lasers and treatments do different things to improve the overall skin texture. A consult with someone who has treated them extensively is probably the best place to start.
