Do not get laser ! I got laser in March 2012. Before the laser , I had mild acne scars. I didn't research options or anything. I was young and I actually googled how to get rid of acne scars and laser is the first option that came up. I didn't research plastic surgeons , I Just went for it with the first office/doctor I met. They promised me beautiful results and I was naive. It cost me $1200. I was bloody , scabby , swollen , crusty and peeling for a week . My skin sloughed off and I had to stay in the house the whole time. After the dead skin came off , I was left with pink sensitive skin. I had to avoid the sun for months. The laser did not help my acne scars. Instead , it left with more scars ! The scars it left me with do not look like acne scars , actually they look worse. They are indented rectangle shaped scars with little indents in the middle. They are about an inch or two long and I have about three of them ! Not only that I am almost 99% guaranteed the laser melted fat from my cheeks. My skin used to be plump , with scars. Now its thin with scars. I am now 4 almost 5 years later still trying to repair the damage caused by laser. My best advice that I could give to someone that is seeking to improve their acne scars is to start off with things that do not damage the top layer of your skin! Most of the time it seems like the really damage is below the surface. You should start off with needling , dermarolling , single needling , tca spot treat , subcision , fillers , fat graft . I am going to start fillers soon ! If anyone has any advice on how they healed damage from lasers please let me know.
