Acne scar type
There are basically 3 types of post acne atrophic scars: box
car scars, ice pick scars and rolling scars. Then scars can also be shallow or
very deep and/or bound down to the underlying tissues. These scars can also
affect the landscape of your skin. Is your skin even just like a flat valley or
more of valleys and hills, where the skin looks wavy? Most people have all types of acne scarring. Your
scars are mostly ice pick, with scattered box car scars. There is NO BEST
SINGLE way to treat acne scars. Based on scar type, scar depth, skin landscape,
skin's natural color, your aversion to downtime and your treatment goal, the
approach to treatment is multi-disciplinary. It can be a combination of acid
peels, dermal fillers, silicone injection, collagen induction therapy and laser
treatments. Asian skin like other ethnic
skin needs to be handled with extra judicious care, because ethnic skin can
easily develop post inflammatory hyperpigmentation.
You have a combination of scars like most acne patients with scars. I would recommend a combination of fillers such as Restylane or Bellafill and laser such as eMatrix. Please consult an expert. Best, Dr. Green
