What's the most effective laser procedure with least side effects for rolling acne scars? (photos)

On 6/4/16, I got a laser procedure called XD in Korea. The doctor also injected my blood into cheek area where the scars are most prominent. I didn't peel at all, just had swelling,discoloration and laser marks on my face.The doctor told me that all the scars will go away in about two months.However,those laser marks have now turned into rolling scars. Could anyone explain procedure I got and the cause of my new scars? Are Active,Deep,Total FX fully ablative and can they fix my scars? Thank you

Acne Scarring -- Requires a Combination of Fractional Laser Resurfacing, Fillers Like Bellafill, Subcision and Eclipse Micropen

Acne treatment requires a combination approach. Fillers like Bellafill or Sculptra or Radiesse for broad "boxcar" or "rolling" scars. Eclipse Micropen for all types of scars and improvement in texture and tone. Lasers such as co2 / erbium laser resurfacing or Fraxel/Clear+Brilliant or radiofrequency such as Skinginify or Viva to improve the scars and give long term collagen production. I suggest consulting with a board certified dermatologist for further assessment. Best, Dr. Emer
