Acne Scarring -- Requires a Combination of Fractional Laser Resurfacing, Fillers Like Bellafill, Subcision and Eclipse Micropen
Hypertrophic Scars Respond Quickly To Intralesional Triamcinolone
In well over three decades of using this approach, I can hardly think of a time that a true hypertrophic scar, even those more elevated, that did not respond by flattening and eventually fading to an off-white or ivory-colored appearance. Such a simple, quick and easy approach is usually sufficient to satisfy most individuals.
Fractional microneedle resurfacing (medical microneedling) may then be used, if so desired, to further improve the surface tone and texture of the skin and to blend the treated area better with the surrounding normal skin.

I would suggest you look into the V-Beam and Fraxel laser to heal these scars. It will take a few treatments but you should notice a large improvement in a few months. Please consult an expert. Best, Dr. Green
