Evaluation: If you have your acne under control that's step one, speak to a dermatologist who is involved with laser resurfacing. This type of laser will remove several layers of skin down to the dermis and will allow for the healing to reduce the visability of your scars. The scars normally do not go away 100% but very good results can be accomplished.
