Treatment of Acne Scarring
I would agree that a combination approach is best. Acne scars which are in a more superficial plane will disappear or nearly disappear when the skin is stretched between two fingers. Those that are deeper will not change much with this "stretch test". Excellent correction can be obtained by doing a combination of energy based treatments (fractionated laser or fractionated RF), medical microneedling (using the full 2mm needle depth in most cases in the scar region) with PRP, possible subscision (maybe with Bellafill), AND an excellent skin care regime at home.

The Best Combination Treatment for Your Scars
It's hard to give you percentages because everyone's body is different and heals differently. For acne scarring, a combination would be best. I recommend using lasers, microneedling/PRP, fillers, and possible subcision. See an expert. Best, Dr. Emer.
