Wold a derma roller or pen work on my atrophic surgical scar that's had laser before? (photo)

Rolling and Atrophic scars
Dear patient, Rolling and atrophic scars need subcision and a filler to "puff the scars up to the normal skin level". Dermapen and needling helps but from the photo it seems that your scars are deeper and tethered down. I suggest you find an experienced acne surgeon and discuss subcision and dermal fillers. I also like the Cool touch CT III laser for these types of scars.
Filling a deep scar on the cheek
This is a deep scar. I would use fillers and Ematrix RF with subcision because the scar needs to be uplifted and filled with volume.
Improving Acne Atrophic Scars with lasers, fillers, subcision and microneedling/prp--takes a series of treatments
This type of scar requires a combination approach to get improvement. I recommend lasers, microneedling/prp, subcision and fillers. It may take a series of treatments. I suggest getting a formal evaluation with an acne scarring expert. Best, Dr. Emer
