Acne and pigmentation
I am having acne on my back, tried home made remedies and consulted few doctors too but still no cure. I even have black pigmentation over my foot, neglected thinking its hereditary, but now I want serious help. Please give me a good consultant who can cure these thing.

Nonablative resurfacing with laser and lights warms the dermis and can provide modest improvement of acne scarring by stimulating collagen remodeling. All subtypes of acne scars can be improved by nonablative therapy. Among the lasers used for this indication are devices originally developed for otheruses, such as pulsed-dye lasers, intense pulsed light devices, and Q-switched Nd:YAG lasers. However, more recently nonablative devices have been optimized to specifically target textural irregularities. For example, a series of treatments with infrared lasers can significantly improve uneven contour associated with acne scarring. These treatments are typically uncomfortable and may require oral and/or topical analgesics. Similarly, fractional resurfacing is quite effective in the treatment of acne scarring. Fractional resurfacing is a minimally ablative technique that creates microscopic zones of dermal injury in a grid-like pattern. Because only a small proportion of the skin surface is treated at one time, and since the stratum corneum is not perforated, recovery is quick. However, a series of treatments is needed...consult dermatologist they will do the needful
