Laser and topicals: Fractional laser resurfacing will be a good way for you to be able to regain normal skin texture and contor following acne scar. In terms of preventing recurrence, daily topicals using a medical grade set of skincare products as well as possibly laser acne therapy depending on the type of nature of your acne will be the chick really helpful as well.
