If your acne scarring is not responding to over-the-counter treatment, there are plenty of procedures, such as lasering, that can promote collagen production and lift and retexture those dark spots. Fractional laser resurfacing is one option — it involves short bursts of high energy that target specific spots on the face. "Following several laser treatments, postacne scarring shows improved texture and appearance," says Dr. Avaliani.

"PicoSure's advanced laser technology can fade acne scars and improve the skin's texture to help you feel confident in your own skin again."
