I suggest a combination treatment with a series of lasers, fillers, microneedling/PRP.  Please see an expert for a consultation.  Best, Dr. Emer.

Fractional Lasers such as the Fraxel Dual and Fraxel Repair are my main workhorse lasers for treating acne scars.  Some cases require fillers, and possibly scar excision but, generally we start with Fraxel.

I like to use Infini for acne scars. It takes 2-3 in most cases. If there remains deeper scars, these can be filled with Bellafill.

We are seeing really great results for acne scars using Microneedling with PRP.  I recommend 4 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart.   We then follow up with a skin care routine that will keep skin healthy and glowing.  Best of luck to you!
