Is there a laser skin lightening treatment available in the US that can make brown skin into pale skin throughout the whole body? What is it called?

What is the difference between acne scars and acne pigmentation? (sorry if that's not how the pigmentation is called)
Good question!: Acne causes inflammatory (and sometimes infected) cysts; if the surrounding tissues are damaged (enough) by squeezing or more severe infection, scars can result. Even if scars are not caused, inflammation can cause skin pigment cells (melanocytes) to be stimulated, making the surrounding skin darker.
