laser ; acne: This can be a very effective treatment if in the right hands and you can do this multiple times. Watch out for depigmentation and ask about this with your doctor.

Yes: You can definitely repeat the treatment again once the skin has healed completely. Make sure you see significant improvement before undergoing the repeat treatment.
