Scar on Face/Body -- Lasers (Fraxel, Co2, Erbium), TCA Cross, Microneedling/PRP, Subcision, Fillers, Tattooing, Surgery
kinds of scars need a combination of treatments. My preference is
usually lasers with microneedling with PRP, and subcision if needed.

Ice pick scars on the cheeks from Acne and TCA CROSS method
This can work and has worked for me. The problem for people with a lot of scars is the slow inexact quality of using TCA for deep chemical peeling. It just took too long for me and it spread around the scars bringing more risk to my treatments in my opinion. I can do it now for acne scarring using lasers and other methods that I combine.
Treat acne, TCA CROSS the laser - filler
Hard to give a 100% ideal plan, however its important to place your acne in remission, then go for the scars. I would-1. TCA CROSS by 2-3 sessions2. Revaluate - possibly laser, possibly filler ( need to angle light you)3. Agree with Dr Green regarding eMarix for early scars. All the best, Dr Davin Lim. Brisbane. Australia.
Acne scars mild
I see very mild acne scarring with acne. I would treat the acne with Retin A. Early acne scars can be treated with the VBeam or Excel V. If the scars are still present, the Infini would be a good choice. TCA Cross is mainly for ice pick scars. Laser resurfacing is a good alternative too.
You would be a great candidate for a combination of acne scars and fillers. I would suggest a combination of Restylane and eMatrix for the best results. Please consult a board certified dermatologist for the best results. Best, Dr. Green
