There are many other treatments that might work better such as Bellafill or lasers such as eMatrix for your scars.  Please consult an expert in acne scar treatments for the best cosmetic results. Best, Dr. Green

HI, we have found success with combining BellaFill Injections along with a dermapen/laser procedure for treating acne scars. This is the best combination to fill in and smooth out the scarring. Good luck!

Its hard to interpret and assess your scars given the facial hair. I would like to see them better. We have a new innovative approach to acne scarring that can treat all types of acne scarring in one treatment done in about 2 hours. It is called the Acne Scar Vitalizer Treatment.

In my opinion, you have depressed saucer-shaped scars, depressed boxcar, and some ice pick scars. As you now know, lasers do not lift scars. You can treat the ice pick scars with TCA cross and micro-needling. The depressed scars can be lifted with subcision and infini. Please do not concentrate on the type of laser device. The Physician who does the treatment is more significant. Find an acne scar expert. Look at pictures. Hope this helps. Good luck.
