Which treatment do I need for my acne scar? (Photo)

Subcsion and dermal filler. - see video for explanation
Definitely dermal fillers as this is an atrophic scar. One we place the needle/cannular in we can tell if its tethered to the underlying skin. If so, surgical subcision can be used. You may require 1-3 treatments for the best results. All the best, Dr Davin Lim. Brisbane. Australia.
Treatment for sunken scar
You would likely benefit from a procedure which would raise the scar and fill it in. I would consider subcision or filler injection. Usually when injecting fillers into sunken scars, I will also do some subcision at that same time to break up the scar underneath the skin. I recommend starting with an HA filler such as Restylane Lyft.
Cystic Scar Solutions--lasers, microneedling/prp, fillers, subcision
This can be treated with lasers, microneedling/prp subcision, and fillers in combination. I suggest seeing an expert in acne scarring. Best, Dr. Emer.

I've seen this from steroid injection of a cyst. In any event, it can be improved using any filler. Bellafill is a long term correction for this and is my choice.
Treatment for scar from cyst
Thank you for the photo and the question. I think time always makes things better but after 6 weeks is a good time to do a revision procedure. It looks like from the photo that you would be best treated with some fat injections to that scar to help smooth it out. If there is a lot of scar and it is stuck down you might need the doctor to do a technique to free up the scar and make a good space to put the fat. Filler is an option but it is temporary. Fat is a more permanent treatment and will be long lasting. I hope this help and Good Luck!
