Will a chemical peel help to get rid of acne scars (I had acne since I was 10) now that I am 16 and the acne has decreased?
Acne scars can be treated effectively by lasers. The V-Beam Perfecta and the Gentleyag are both excellent lasers for acne scars. However, get your acne under control before working on scarring. The V-beam in conjunction with good skin care and possibly some light peels or microdermabrasion can help with acne and minimal scarring.
Look for a medical spa and laser center owned and operated by a plastic surgeon.
