I heard the erbium laser was a somewhat safer alternative regarding hyperpigmentation for people with dark skin. But I also heard tell that it is too mild to be much help. I fear this laser is the only hope for my nose scarring so:

Has anyone tried this laser for acne scarring and had good results? 

How many treatments are usually necessary?

How much does a small section (like the nose) cost per treatment?

Does anyone have any success stories regarding other individual treatments for scarring on the nose?

Any help is appreciated! :D

 

Types of Scars I Have: Four scars between the middle of my nose and the tip. One medium sized icepick, one broad shallow boxcar, and two moderate depth circular scars. Quite a few enlarged pores in that area as well. 

Background Information: I had inflammatory acne but it's now under control. I am a medium brown skin color.

Dont expect a discount, even for a small area they typically charge full face prices. Maybe a 10-20% discount is what you should be able to negotiate.
