I have acne scar and hyper pigmentation. where do i go to get rid of it and what type of treatment do i ask for?

Deramtologist

Sebum
The vi peel is safe for any color skin and can lighten dark areas in one week. It can be pre treated with bleaching agents containing hydroquinone, kojic acid or coffeberry extract. It will have an effect on scars, but Fractionated laser will be required for a long term result for scarring.Either co2 or erbium are affective, but erbium is better tolerated by darker skin types.

Which is better for acne scar treatment - derma roller / laser?

Both

Acne
Both are great treatments in the right hands. Only go to a Dermatologist with a lot of experience, not just any laser or salon that does these treatments. It can be horrific if performed in the wrong hands.

Tell me about laser acne scar treatment?

It works VERY well!

Pimples
The CO2 laser works very well for acne scars of the face. The CO2 laser emits invisible energy that is absorbed by the skin, vaporizing a very thin amount of the surface. The laser energy also stimulates production of new collagen. This results in the skin becoming smoother, and ultimately stronger and thicker than before the treatment. It may not get rid of ALL the scars, but it really helps!

Is laser treatment effective for acne scar removal?

Yes

Cicatrix
The improvment of the acne scars by laser depends on the type of scar and the patients skin type. The atrophic acne scars are improved by the fracional CO2 or Erbium lasers, but the ice-pick and box car type scarring is not improved much. Your need to seem and experience dermatological laser surgeon for evaluation.

On average, how long will acne scar treatment last?

Indefinitely

Facial_pimples
Once the treatment - like laser or chemical peel - has healed, and a few months have gone by, the results in the treated area should be stable.

Not really

you can produce improvements in the scars but you cannot laser them off. Costs will vary and multiple sessions will likely be required with a total cost ranging from 1000-15,000 USD. Expect improvements but not complete eradication of scarring
