Acne scar treatment
Acne Scarring -- Lasers (Fraxel, Co2/Erbium, VIVA, Intensif); Microneedling/PRP, Fillers (Bellafill); Subcision; Punch Excision
You have a combination of different scars which will respond best to a combination of treatments, such as radio frequency and fractional laser. If you can tolerate some downtime, an ablative laser procedure would produce quicker results. Use of a product such as Sculptra, which can stimulate collagen production, can also help. You will need multiple treatments over a period of months to optimize your results.

You have a combination of acne scars and will require a combination of fillers such as Resytlane and Bellafill for the deeper scars and lasers such as Fraxel for overall texture of the skin. Microneedling cannot go deep enough for these types of scars. Please consult an expert. Best, Dr. Green
