Hi Visit a qualified dermatologist for proper treatment of acne. Main purpose of acne treatment is to control it and then keep it under control so as not form any scars. Do not pick at your pimples to reduce the chances of scar formation. Co2 laser will definitely help you reduce depth of the scars and resurfacing. Other option are subcision, Dermaroller and peeling sessions. Usually a combined approach is needed depending on type and depth of scars as well as skin type. Keep patience and be regular with treatment you will achieve good results. Best regards Dr Vijay Adhe, Eternis Skin & Hair Clinic, Pune.
