The Ice Pick Scar Solutions--TCA cross, lasers, microneedling, surgery
Ice pick scarring needs TCA cross or surgical removal. This is often combined with lasers and microneedling/prp in my practice. your scars are very severe and will need a series of treatments and surgeries. Cost will vary and will take a series of treatments. I recommend a formal consultation with a scarring expert. Best, Dr. Emer.
Great question and one that we get often. Acne scars can be challenging to treat. In general, subcision (using a needle to release the underlying scar tissue) and some sort of filler/fat transfer is likely to give you the best result. It may take two treatments or more to get to a point where you feel you have gained a significant improvement.
I hope this helps.
All the best,
Dr. Remus Repta
