No, you should not: This is an elective procedure. Laser treatments such as this are not advised during pregnancy. Certainly after you have delivered your healthy baby, you can consider this procedure.

Not great: Much better for acne scar removal. Light treatment with ala is not laser bout works for active acne as do chemical peels. Of course daily skin care is assumed.

Yes: Both lasers and fillers have worked remarkably well. Remember that you have a choice; some hollywood leading men like the scars and the "tough guy" character they give. I know you will make the right decision for yourself.
