Laser Treatment: Dear Matthew1: Either a plastic surgeon or a dermatologist would be fine. Make sure whoever you chose has experience with acne treatment and is a ASLMS member. Please check for board certification and ask to see pre and post op photo's demonstrating that doctor's results. Hope this helps and good luck.
