What can be causing my skin to scar and what treatments would work best? (Photo)

I've been getting this scarring and my whole face is now covered in it. Its also starting down by neck and my face and neck get these tingly numbness sensations. No itchyness or oily/dry skin. My face has lost all of its volume, and when I smile or anything my face looks totally deformed. Touching my face feels like dough there's no firmness left anywhere, when I smile my cheeks look huge with my lower face almost sunk in. What could cause this and what treatment should I be looking into?

Full facial rejuvenation with lasers, microneedling/prp, RF, Sculptra, Kybella, Ultherapy

Scarring can be variable due to skin type, trauma type and aftercare. Scars can be treated with lasers, microneedling/prp, subcision and fillers. I find that a combination of lasers or RF, sculptra for collagen building, microneedling/prp and skin care help with skin rejuvenation and prevent aging. Kybella, Ultherapy and/or ThermiRF treatments (Venus Legacy) would be non-invasive options that would do well in combination for skin tightening. Facial fillers, implants, fat and Sculptra can be used to provide fullness and volume. I recommend a formal consultation with a cosmetic dermatologist. Best, Dr. Emer
