I have very bad facial acne scars. I hate looking like this and it seems to look even worse every year. I am Mexican and have darker skin. Is there a skin resurfacing procedure that I can have that won’t change my skin color but will get rid of some of the pitting on my face?
Because of your darker skin type the procedure chosen will have to be less aggressive than someone with lighter skin types. Additionally, we will need to pre-treat your skin with a topical agent to reduce the risk of tanning in the area of treatment. With that said, a variety of fractionated lasers can be used to improve your scarring. A detailed consultation will compare these treatment options.
