It depends: It is best to try a test spot to see if it'll work for you. Results are variable, sometimes good, sometimes not so much. If you do get improvement, overexposure to the sun once is often enough to bring them back. Other types of treatment may work better, so see a qualified profession in your area for an opinion. ...Read more

Is skin resurfacing always done with chemical peels? I want to have my skin resurfaced to help get rid of my acne scars and sun spots, but i feel like a chemical peel might be too harsh on my sensitive skin. Are there any other skin resurfacing options th

There : There are a few options when it comes to skin resurfacing for acne scar and pigmentation issues. Chemical peels and lasers are two options. Another option that works well for treating just portions of the face is dermabrasion. This produces more of a physical sanding of the skin. The idea with all 3 procedures is to remove the outer layer of skin cells. New skin then regrows into the area to create a smoother, more even pigmentation. ...Read more

If your skin is sensitive, the treatments designed to reduce acne scarring will need to be less severe (and will be less effective). Laser may be most precise. ...Read more

Yes, : Yes, skin resurfacing to treet acne scars and sunspots can be done with lasers. Besides chemical peels dermabrasion is another option. The goal with any of the treatments is to remove the outer layers of skin cell to then allow the body to reline with new, fresh skin cells. I wouldn't say that one method is any less harsh than the other necessarily. That are lasers available that are non-ablative (don't actually remove skin cells) that can help treat pigmentation problems. This would be less harsh for your skin but wouldn't be expected to improve your acne scarring. ...Read more
