Post 3 month Ematrix patient , which other treatments should I try and when ? I'm 18 and my scars are still "new " (photo)

- seen a dermatologist , says scars are superficial because they are 30% visible in natural light - 3 sessions of Ematrix , no other procedures done - skin responds well to lasers - scars are about a little over a year old . - no other scarring on face , besides areas shown near apples of my cheeks

Yu can have another round of 3-6 eMatrix procedures or proceed ahead with other modalities in the combination approach such as chemical peels, PRP, dermal filler, subcision, fractional laser ...

EMatrix and scars

See video in how I employ eMatrix in the context of acne scarring. This is only one device that I use, certainly other METHODS, like Dr Emer has stated will give you better targeted results for acne scar types. All the best, Dr Davin Lim. Brisbane. Australia.

I recommend a combination approach. For acne scarring,  I suggest using lasers, microneedling/PRP, fillers and quality skincare. Please see an expert. Best, Dr. Emer
