Laser: Fractionated erbium or co2 will help acne scars as well as lighten sun damage and dark spots. The healing time is 4 days for erbium to about a week for co2. If the s ars are not an issue other lasers or light based devices can be used for the sun damage and brown spots without down time.

Fractionated co2: For your condition the best treatment is a fractionated co2 laser treatment it will address the hyperpigmentation and acne scarring at the same time I have had great results in my practice with it.
