I've Tried So Many Treatments For My Scars From Treating Scars. What Next? (photo)

I had Erbium laser in 07 for a few acne scars. After surgery I was left with scars around my scars, a square dent & large patches of indented skin that looks like patches. I went to a laser speciialist after & he tried Smoothbeam, Perfecta, Affirm, & Fraxel Dual 4 x's. I've had injections & now I'm trying needling & TCA peels. I have another appt for Fraxel but I'm not sure what kind I should ask for. II would like the skin built up not taken off anymore. Your opinin would be appreciated.

We always like to offer facial laser resurfacing first to our patients with deep pitted acne scars. We offer the DOT Co2 Laser.  For extreme cases you can consult for a mini face lift. This can smooth out the ice pick indentations.

Acne indented scars still after multiple treatments what should you do

I think you need a multilayered approach to your acne scarring. Lasers could help a little but you will need some volumizing with fillers, etc. I have a new approach to acne scarring that I think could help.
