What are my scar removal options? (Photos)

I had infantigo at the age of 5 and I've had to live with the scar since then. Some people claim they don't notice it but I see it in every single picture take. It had s slight intention so it's not just something my makeup hides.

I would recommend a Hidef Acne Scar Protocol which includes subcision, fractional lasers, skin resurfacing, PRP, fillers, and ematrix RF.

This type of scar needs subcision, fillers and lasers or microneedling/PRP.  I suggest seeing an expert.  Best, Dr. Emer.
