I have deep acne scars. What would be the best treatment to get rid of them? (Photo)

Multiple treatment with fractional energy devices, subcsion and fillers.
You will also require surgical methods and also some filler like Restylane, Bellafilla or Volbella to the atrophic scars.
All the best

Acne Scarring -- Requires a Combination of Fractional Laser Resurfacing, Fillers Like Bellafill, Subcision and Eclipse Micropen
Microneedling is a safe and effective option for all skin types any time of the year. One of the benefits of microneedling is the collagen development and improvement in tone and texture. It is a very customizable procedure and can be done in conjunction with PRP or platelet rich plasma. Multiple treatments are usually suggested at four week intervals for best results.
CO2RE laser treatments are another option for acne scars. Some patients see impressive improvement with one or two of these procedures which is non-ablative CO2. These treatments can be done alone, or as a part of a treatment protocol that includes other modalities such as a deep chemical peel to prep the skin.
At home use of Retinol is suggested such as Skin Medica's Retinol 1% with strict use of sunscreen.
Hope this helps. Good luck.

Thanks for your question.
There are several options for improving the look of acne scars: dermabrasion, laser resurfacing, injectable filler, and microneedling.
I think that microneedling is the best option for most patients based on cost, downtime, and outcomes.
When you can add some type of energy like RF (radiofrequency) to microneedling, as you can with the Venus Viva RF microneedling device, then the results are obtained more quickly.
That being said, I prefer microneedling over the other options.
