Always treat the scar type and never the device- best tip for acne scars
Halo Resurfacing or Rejuvapen Micro Needling
I think that laser resurfacing could be a great benefit to the scar tissue using a hybrid fractional laser called Halo by Sciton. Halo is laser resurfacing of scars with an added wavelength to address pigmentation that often accompanies acne in darker skin types. Vaporization of thickened scar tissue while creating channels into deeper dermal layers allows for healthy cells to move into the area and replace the scar. This would be my top suggestion to address scarring with PIH. Micro Needling has also proven to be effective in reducing the appearance of scars by mechanically breaking apart the tethered fibers allowing for replacement.
