Both are good!

Keloids
Your could ask for referrals within both groups of doctors. A wise approach is to find a doctor with the most experience with this. Look for one who is a board-certified physician and accepts your insurance if possible.

I want to get laser treatment on my skin for acne. Would I go to a dermatologist for this or a plastic surgeon?

MedSpa or derm

Acne
These treatments are amazing and will work great. I would suggest going to a reputable MedSpa in your area that specializes in this treatment. A dermatologist is an option as well but typically takes longer to be seen.

Should I go to a cosmetic plastic surgeon, dermatolgist or esthetician for acne scar/hyperpigmentation. I would like laser produces or peels done.

See a Specialist

Laser
You should see either a dermatologist or cosmetic surgeon who specializes in acne scarring, cosmetic surgery and lasers. They would own many lasers and have many years of experience treating acne scarring, hyperpigmentation and other disorders. Chemical acid peels do not work as well as lasers but some doctors do not own any lasers and only offer chemical peels. But lasers cost more.

Pimples
If recommended, it may be on basis of specific bacteria found in the acne breakout areas. Some bacteria are carried within the nasal areas (like some staph and strep) are resistant to certain common antibiotics and can be problematic to treat.

Can i use sulphur bathing soap during pregnancy to cure acne? Dermatologists answers

No cure just control
