Need some advice for my Acne Scarring - seeing an esthetician in a week

Recommended Posts

Need some advice on how I should be dealing with my acne scars. I used to have really bad acne in high school and I did a terrible job of taking care of my skin. Thing is I haven't really had any pimples for years now (maybe the odd one here and there but nothing major). Now I'm left with a ton of scarring on my cheeks. It's been like this for years with no signs of going away. It's a bit difficult to see in the pictures but the redness is more noticeable in person. 

I am seeing an esthetician next week (place is called Qesthetics in Richmond Hill Ontario) and I've been reading up a bit on Picosure laser. At first I was thinking about Fraxel but it seems way too intense and the down time is not something I am able to accommodate with work and whatnot. I did previously do three sessions of micro needling at the same place but I noticed zero change in my skin. 

I also notice that when I stretch my skin the scars fade a bit... Not sure if that matters at all. 

I guess I was just wondering if you guys thought it was worth it to go through with Picosure laser at this point in time and if anyone has had any experience with it in the past.
