OK, firstly a good examination is needed. Once done, we categories your acne scars, and target them with lasers, micro needling RF devices, PRP, fillers, and in some cases even Botox (forehead scars). The video link below will explain everything in great detail. All the best, Dr Davin Lim

Answer to acne scarring
Acne scarring is not an easy condition to treat, but we have found that a series of 3 eMatrix treatments help to soften acne scarring and pitting. The treatment involves the administration of radio frequency heat that is delivered via tiny nodules that penetrate the skin. The end result is collagen and elastin stimulation which plumps up the depressed areas and lightens darkened spots. We are seeing fractional laser type results without the same downtime. Good luck!
