Problem with back
A while ago, I began getting acne on my back. Unfortunately I scratched a lot. Now I have white spots on my back. I know the skin has been damaged, but is there any way that the spots could be made less visible, with laser or something? Could I do something about it? I would appreciate information, I am very unhappy.

Where acne resolves scars. increased pigmentation or decreased pigmentation may appear. These white spots are very difficult to treat. Laser and intense pulsed light may be of benefit. Ask your doctor.
