Acne Scarring -- Lasers (Fraxel, Co2/Erbium, VIVA, Intensif); Microneedling/PRP, Fillers (Bellafill); Subcision; Punch Excision
your type of scarring will never get 99% improvement. It will take a very long time to get 50-75% but it can be done with laser combinations, microneedling/PRP and skin care/peels. you will need a significant amount of treatments for maintenance given the degree of scarring. some of your scars would also benefit from fillers, subcision and punch excision. Best, Dr. Emer.
Frustrated with Acne Scarring
I know it's frustrating with acne scarring. Acne scarring is one of the most difficult things to treat for any physician. I know because I've been trying to work with it for over 15 years. Don't be frustrated though there are answers. I started doing acne scar surgery is about 15-16 years ago and I immediately noticed how hard it was to get great results. I started doing laser resurfacing and knew that this wasn't going to make people better. I'm very hard on myself and I also wanted patients to be happy so I worked really hard to improve my methods. Currently we are using a 5-7 step process that is getting real significant results for people. I'm sure we could help you. I've heard your stories countless times and I've been able to help people just like you!
Acne Scars and Dark skin
Looking at your photos you appear to have very deep scars which would be best to be treated with fillers first. After a combination of fillers and Sculptra and EMatrix laser you will have much more improvement. Best, Dr. Green
Acne scars can improve but not to 99 percent
I think your expectations are too high. I see you haven't tried the Infini which I think is the best device to treat these at the current time. I is much safer for darker skin types than lasers as well. I've treated with lasers and have seen better results with Infini. See link please.
