I think that procedures like laser and microdermabrasion can be VERY helpful when it comes to removing pitted acne scars and helping to diminish acne hyper-pigmentation. Unfortunately, they can be a bit pricey but to me it was worth it. The key with these procedures is patience. A few of them have to be done to start seeing results. But in the end I am glad that I did it! It helped to speed up the process of healing my skin. Here are some of the procedures I have used:
1.Microdermabrasion: I used Diamondtome Microdermabrasion, which is crystal free microdermabrasion. This procedure helped with my pitted acne scars by removing the topmost layer of my skin, which stimulates skin renewal. I had a good amount of procedures done over the years but my pitted scars are gone. SO I think it was worth it.
2. IPL laser treatment: this type of treatment helps with age spots, brown pigments, rosacea, and redness caused by broken capillaries. My dermatologist recommended I get this done for my red marks. I believe there are other laser treatments out there that I have yet to try, but I do believe that this treatment has helped with the redness in my face, as well as my red acne scars. I would talk to your doctor to see what the best option would be for you.
