Deep acne scar
This is a complex problem, Therefore the answer will be complex. To get the best results, I recommend a combination approach. You can do a series of fractional lasers for scars and a series of PRP injections to help. You may even add a touch of injectable fillers to smoothen it out afterwards. This is a long process. You will have to be patient.
The Best Acne Scar Solutions with lasers, fillers, subcision and microneedling/prp
I recommend both. This requires a combination approach for best results. You can get improvement with lasers, fillers, subcision, and microneedling/prp. See an expert in acne scarring for a formal evaluation. Best, Dr. Emer.
Deep acne scar, should I get CO2 Laser or Plasma Blood Injections?
Assuming the "plasma blood injections" are microneedling with PRP (platelet rich plasma) then both doctors are right. There is no one correct way to treat acne scars. You don't have any ice pick scars so no need for surgery. This leaves several options to help improve the contour of your skin. Fractionated lasers like CO2, microneedling +/- PRP, and dermabrasion will likely be the most effective. The treatments help to stimulate collagen growth and blend the acne scars with the surrounding skin. It frequently does take several treatments to get to your goal of improvement. It is unlikely that any of the treatments will completely get of all visible scarring but they should make them less noticeable.
I hope this helps and good luck.
