Acne scar treatment

It is hard to give you a specific answer without photos or an in-person evaluation. However, in general, I see best results for acne scars with combination treatments including non-ablative skin resurfacing and microneedling. Fillers, subcision, and chemical peels can also be used to improve scars. Vascular lasers are often used when treating vascular scars. My recommendation is that you see an experienced practitioner, one that has a clinical interest and practice focus on acne scar treatments.
