Are Venus Viva and EndyMed Acne Scar treatments similar?

I am interested in EndyMed for acne scarring and Venus Viva for overall tightening and smoothing wrinkles, but do not want to over do it. I also will be getting Ultherapy on my lower face and neck.

Acne Scars - Combination protocols using laser, Ematrix, and Acne Surgery in Los Angeles

I would suggest that you use a multi-pronged regimen that includes laser resurfacing, Ematrix RF, micropen microneedling, subcision, acne surgery, chemical peels, and TCA Cross. These techniques together can dramatically improve your skin.

Acne Scarring -- Requires a Combination of Fractional Laser Resurfacing, Fillers Like Bellafill, Subcision and Eclipse Micropen

ou need a cosmetic dermatologist who specializes in acne scarring/pigmentation and does a combination of treatments including: surgery, subcision, or TCA cross for deep or pitted "ice pick" scars; fillers like Bellafill or Sculptra or Radiesse for broad "boxcar" or "rolling" scars; Eclipse Micropen for all types of scars and improvement in texture and tone; lasers such as co2 laser resurfacing or Fraxel/Clear+Brilliant or radiofrequency such as Viva to improve the scars and give long term collagen production. There are many options but you want someone who can customize a regimen for your short and long term goals based on your individual situation. Best, Dr. Emer.
