Filler for Rolling Acne Scars

While laser resurfacing will help to a degree, for this particular type of rolling acne scarring, injectable filler would offer the most improvement. A hyaluronic based filler such as Juvederm or Restylane would work well. It would likely have to be done once or twice a year to maintain the results.

Depressed acne scarring

This might be treated easily using Bellafill. Combination with the Infini would be even better. Please see the link.

Acne Scars - Fillers, eMatrix, Fraxel, PRP and microneedling

Depending on the type of scar you have it is usually beneficial to have a combination of filers for the deep scars and textural resurfacing for the remaining scars.  Please consult an expert in acne scars for the best combination of treatments.  Best, Dr. Green

EndyMed For Acne Scars

Endymed is a very effective treatment for acne scarring.  It is also useful in treating scars from acne, trauma and surgical.  

Endymed™ is an advanced, energy-based technological device that utilises radiofrequency (RF) to stimulate collagen contraction and production deep within the skin. This collagen remodelling helps to create firmer, tighter skin and reduce the appearance of scars . 

A series of 4 to 6 treatments that are scheduled one month apart will provide the best results.  


Acne scars and treatment

Thanks for your question and photos. Lasers promote the production of collagen and elastin by stimulating the deeper layers of your skin while treating outer layers of scar tissue with varying levels of laser energy. This process reduces your skin damage and leads to a plump, enviable complexion. There are other ways to reduce the appearance of scars such as laser skin resurfacing or injectable fillers. These options can work well in conjunction with laser treatment. The right scar treatment for you depends on your skin and specific scarring, meeting with a board certified dermatologist will help you determine what is best.
