Scars on Face/Body -- Lasers (Fraxel, Co2, Erbium), TCA Cross, Microneedling/PRP, Subcision, Fillers, Tattooing, Surgery
is always easier to treat a new scar, because the skin is still soft
and responsive. Older scars may take more treatments and may not
resolve as well. I use a combination of therapies rather than relying
on just one, for best results. Please see an expert. Best, Dr. Emer
Treating scars - early vs late
New Acne Scars
It is much better to start treatmemt on your acne scars right away. You will need a combination of lasers to treat these scars. I like microneedling but not for this type of scars. Please consult an expert in acne scar treatments for the best cosmetic results. Best, Dr. Green
