Acne Scarring -- Requires a Combination of Fractional Laser Resurfacing, Fillers Like Bellafill, Subcision and Eclipse Micropen
Deep Acne Scars and Best Treatments
Deep Acne Scars may best be treated with a combination of Lasers and Fillers. I really like a combination of Restylane and Sculptra for the deep and enlarged craters. I also do a combination of fillers such as Fraxel, eMatrix, V-Beam, and PRP for these types of scars. Please consult an expert for these advanced techniques. Best, Dr. Green

Acne scars - what works when nothing has worked
- I am so sorry you are plagued with these scars.
- Since treatment depends on the depth of these scars, one can't give advice without a photo, at least.
- The deep ice-pick scars are almost impossible to treat.
- more superficial scars respond well to fillers, Radiesse especially.
- TCA peels may help the large pores.
- Skin redness may respond to treatment with a vascular laser.
Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.
