In brief: Bad idea

Lasers are not intended at all to remove acne, in fact the heat generated could actually make it worse.
There are much better treatments like #1 good skin care with right products, #2, chemical peels, #3blue light with or without ala, #4 other topical treatments #5 oral medications. #6 facials with acne masks. Lots of good choices that are not invasive and not harmful like a laser.
