Acne Scars a nightmare - surgery? Laser? Help!

I am no longer a teenager, but still get Acne and have scarring. This problem is hindering my life. I refuse to step out of the house without make up. On extreme make overs they sometimes 'laser' the acne/scars away. Are there S.A doc's who can perform this procedure, and what is the approximate cost?

Any and all help appreciated,

Thank and Regards,

Can you possibly give a list of dermatologists that offer the laser surgery in the Johannesburg area. Can you purchase the Glycolic acid peels at a chemist or do I need to go to a dermatologist for that to?
