If it works it is because it probably just dries out the area due to the ph of the flavoring agents and the Fluoride ion helps to kill bacteria. The potential for particles to clog your pores is too great. There are better treatments for acne that probably cost less than toothpaste. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Depends: Certainly the type of acne scarring you have would direct one toward a certain type of laser. Non-ablative lasers (that don't remove skin layers) are useful for some types of scarring while ablative lasers (that remove skin layers) are better for thicker scars.
