Thanks for writing to us.
If you have a single hair on your chin, in stead of going with laser, you may go with electrolysis. It is more cost effective and would yield good result.

As far as acne is concerned, firstly the grade and severity of acne has to be evaluated. Sometimes only application of topical creams like adapalene and clindamycin yield good results and sometimes oral drug like azithromycin or doxycycline or isotretinon needs to be added. As a general treatment option you may use salicylic acid face wash like saslic and apply treclin gel over acne lesions. If not much response is seen in two to three weeks, please contact a dermatologist for prescription of doxycycline/ azithromycin and/or isotretinoni.
Hope this helped.
Take care
