Greetings Docs, I have underwent 5 CO2 Fractional laser & 5 Ematrix sessions (both at highest setting) and a couple of subcisions for my pit,boxcar & rolling scars.Most of my scars are boxcars and it doesn't seem to respond well to the treatments I had (be it shallow or deep ones).Would punch tech work well?I have realistic expectations; WAS happy with my results but people still commented that my scars are still deeply embedded.I'm 21, male, fair Chinese.Am still using AHA & RetinA for scars.
Do Punch Techniques Still Work on Scars That Have Been Treated with Laser Multiple Times.I Do Not Wish to Have Any Fillers Done.

Punch excision excellent for deep scars
A punch excision of a deep acne scar is an excellent choice, especially if other techniques have failed and you don't want to have fillers done. Most board-certified dermatologists should be able to perform this procedure. You will likely have stitches for 5-7 days. Good luck.
