Your skin looks good. I really dont think you should go for a laser treatment. Maybe some HQ for a few weeks before your wedding and maybe microdermabrasion to even out your skin tone. Good Luck and congratulations!!!!!

I agree with jakiey, try some topical products to help with the hyperpigmentation. Fraxel Repair will cause your skin to be bright red for about a month, and people have reported issues with redness several months out.

Retin-a and obaji do help with acne scars, but the products are irritating and draw acne to the surface, so it will look bad before it looks better.

I mean acne scars. I have pre-exisiting indented acne scars from years of acne - hard to see on the photos I know.

I do have lots of red scars, I guess that's called hyperpigmentation.

I have no hope of getting rid of my indented scars but if I could at least get rid of the red ones in tiem for the wedding
