There are many options for fine lines, acne scarring and wrinkles. There is something for all skin types. A program should be customized for your individual needs, skin type, problem and budget.
You can use a topical such as Retin A type cream or an Alpha Hydroxy Acid. Then we have different lasers to chose from such as IPL (Photofacial),N Lite (Pulsed Dye Laser), and Fraxel. Another option can be to use Glycolic Acid or TCA peels. As you can see there are many choices. It is important to see a Dermatologist or Plastic Surgeon for a consult and treatment plan. This is your face and you want to make the best decision for your skin type. Not all
skin types are treated the same. Do your research.

There is no best treatment for acne scars, but you should check out the following procedures to understand your options fully. All are good options, but the best ones for you depend on the type of scars, your budget and your ability to have downtime (days or weeks of recovery).
We would recommend at least 4 or 5 consultations at which you are sure to get differing opinions. Better to have too much information than too little.
