Hi Doctor, I have some acne scars in my face which are relatively small holes, but still as they are many, you can see them. I would like to know if using Glycol Acid creme is a good way of smoothening the skin and reduce the visibility of the acne scars. If not, what other treatment could you suggest to me to get rid of them?

Acne I have been able to control to some extent with medication, however due to my keloidal tendency i cannot go in for any treatments for my scars like dermabrasion. After consulting several dermatologists I was told that my scars are too deep to be removed through creams alone. Is laser treatment an option, and how effective and safe is it?
