How many treatments of microneedling do you need for deep acne scars? (Photos)

I woudn't say my acne scars are ice pick scars but they were pretty darn close to it. I did a series of 3 micorneeding sessions and I noticed a HUGE difference. Last treatment was May 2016. However, I do notice in sunlight and indoor bright lights some area scarring are still present. How many microneedling sessions is recommended? I attached pics showing the left side of my face and right jaw line. (Sorry for the creepy close-ups)

Acne Scarring -- Lasers (Fraxel, Co2/Erbium, VIVA, Intensif); Microneedling/PRP, Fillers (Bellafill); Subcision; Punch Excision

Most of my acne scarring patients do microneedling every month forever. they combine this with lasers, PRP, fillers and as they get more improvement they do less lasers and more peels to maintain.  Best, Dr. Emer.
