What treatment will I see best results? Im a 31 year old single mother that is very self concious about my acne scars. I can camouflage some with makeup techniques but i want more relief so I can go swimming with my kids or not be afraid to run to the store without makeup on!! I'm not sure the type of acne scars mine are considered? Would dermal fillers be more successful for me than laser or microderm? I hate my scars but don't want to spend money on procedures that don't have any results.
I have acne scars from teenage years and more recently from cystic acne while on IUD. (photos)

Acne Scar - Treatment Options
Your scars would benefit from a few sessions of laser, with subcision for non responding/ deeper scars.I say a few sessions, as it does take repeated treatments/ combination protocols to achieve good results in Grade III/ IV acne scars.
Acne Scarring -- Lasers (Fraxel, Co2/Erbium, VIVA, Intensif); Microneedling/PRP, Fillers (Bellafill); Subcision; Punch Excision
