It would be best first to get your acne under control so that you do not scar anymore. A combination of Bellafill for your acne scars and lasers to resurface the skin such as Fraxel and eMatrix. Please consult a specialist for your acne scars. Best, Dr. Green

You also show some boxcar scars. These can be elevated with subcision, and finally, conventional, relatively inexpensive, conventional microneedling can be used, should there be a need for blending the treated skin with the surrounding normal skin. No need for relatively expensive fraxel or radiofrequency treatments, as these, in my experience, offer little advantage over conventional treatments, and frankly, appear to be far more supported by device manufacturer supported marketing hype than hard science. For more on any of the above procedures, check out the archives of RealSelf.com.
However, I agree with your dermatologist that it would be unwise to begin treating the scars before the acne is completely under control for at least several months. Good luck to you.
