What is the best treatment for my acne scars? (Photo)
Doctor Answers 3
Treat active acne, then revise acne scars.
I personally think from that photo you have active acne, PIH and dark scars. So acne management of acne combined with vvv low strength TCA peels and Picosure Focus is my preferred treatment for YOU.
The majority of patients will have a collection of different scar types, and hence a tailored treatment METHOD will be best. Careful examination, especially under angled lighting with scar mapping will give you an understanding of what are the best options for your scars.
All the best,

Treating Acne Scars on Dark Skin and eMatrix
You are correct that you have to be extremely careful when treating acne scars on dark skin. The eMatrix laser is a "color blind" laser and is safe and effective for your skin type. Please consult an expert. Best, Dr. Green
