Severe scarring

My acne scars were treated by a dermatologist in Australia using Subsicion and CO2 laser.I want to know how much they could improve realistically and whether it’s possible to improve from grade4B to grade3. I also want to know whether I have any hyperpigmentaion and whether I should continue using hydroquinone as recommended by my dermatologist

@Belhbelh14 Yes you can improve, it depends how you heal, ... good seems the Dr' knows the treatments you need. Lots of sessions of subcision. Yes your shave PIE & PIH, start using a cream to treat for this hydroquinone (takes a few months) vascular laser, or a skin lightening topical (all the above are needed in your case). It takes time 3 years for most. 

Bring these concerns up to your Dr they are treating you next time you see them.
