What is the best treatment to get rid of acne scars?

Acne Scar Treatment

Pimples
There are a number of options for acne scars depending on their size, shape, depth, and skin type. Laser resurfacing, usually fractional, may help improve the texture of the skin but may require multiple treatments. If there is deep scarring, the scars can be excised or cut out. Subcision, releasing the scar underneath the skin, along with fillers or fat can also improve the skin texture.

What is the difference between peels and laser treatment to get rid of acne scars?

Very similar

Scarring
Both techniques remove the top layers of the skin and are usually limited to epidermis. However most scars occur in the dermis. Peels or laser resurfacing that are used to treat the dermis may have a higher risk of scarring. Newer laser techniques use fractionated or pixelated therapy to avoid a full surface injury. By leaving islands of normal skin intact, healing proceeds faster & with less risk

How to get rid of acne scars under $100. I have acne scars and have been trying to get rid of it so bad but i dont know what is good for a 15 year old boy! I looked up acid treatment and laser treatment but is unsure about which to pick.

Unfortunately

Unfortunately you will not be able to get rid of acne scars for that amount. The gold standard for acne scar improvement is fractional laser done multiple times - and that is usuallly between $500 to $800 per session. If your scars are merely dark areas, you should use a good sunblock all the time and try a few of the dark spot correctors (Neutrogena is one) Any over the counter treatment will only be minimally effective in correcting discoloration, but if a big issue is dark marks, anything that helps is a plus. Red marks will eventually resolve on their own if you don't "worry" the skin by picking or using abrasive scrubs. As for actual scarring that causes a shadow because of the depth, your only solution lies in a medical office. The big factor to control is your acne to prevent further scarring. If you are still breaking out, most dermatology visits will fall under insurance - as will the topical and oral medications.

Will it be visible to the people around me that I've had a mesotherapy treatment? I work as a news anchor, so my appearance is very important. I'm hoping to get rid of some acne scars and wrinkles on my cheeks. Will mesotherapy leave any bruising? If so,

Save your money

Wrinkles
See a dermatologist or cosmetic surgeon. Injecting "vitamins" will be a waste of time & money. Homeopathy is strictly placebo only. For TV you need only makeup. Don't believe the hype. A few blemishes are never ugly. Major scars can be improved with cosmetic proceedures. If it sounds too good to be true, it is not true.

Mesotherapy

Mesotherapy involves multiple small injections into the skin of various chemicals depending on the intent of the treatment. Typically reddness and swelling will be present after the procedure and can last for several hours to days after the treatment. A optional technique is the use of a medical Dermaroller which is roller with multiple fine needles that is applied by rolling the needlesover the area after applying a topical anesthetic. The small needles cause increased circulation into the dermis layer of skin as well as the release of growth factors from the blood plasma that stimulate fibroblasts to form new collagen and fill in acne scars. The procedure is performed in the office and swelling and reddness will last for a few days. Cover makeup and sunscreen can be applied over the reddness the day after the procedure. Depending on the depth of the scaring multiple sessions may be required to acheive desired results.

Can you get laser treatment for acne scars on your face?

Acne scar options

You can never remove a scar, once present. However, multiple options for improving the appearance of acne scars exist. Depending on your skin and exact circumstances your facial plastic surgeon or dermatologist may recommend laser treatments (including CO2, 1550 nm erbium), peels, dermabrasion, or well as topical treatments. Seek a physician with experience.
