Mixed Acne Scars and Treatment
Thank you for posting a photo. Since you have mixed type of scars a combination approach will be necessary. A combination of eMatrix with your skin type and fillers into the scar would be the best approach. Please consult a specialist for the best cosmetic results. Best, Dr. Green

Mixed acne scars = multiple treatment methods.
Acne scar revision is a specialised field. For the best results, one should target the acne scar type with ideal treatments. For example deep ice pick scars, and narrow box car scars can be treated with TCA CROSS peels, mixed scars, rolling, and atrophic scars treated with fractional devices such as Fraxel, fractional lasers, and INFINI radiofrequency. Atrophic scars (depressions) can be treated with either fat grafts, or with HA dermal fillers. Tethered and anchored scars are best treated with surgery.
The majority of patients will have a collection of different scar types, and hence a tailored treatment METHOD will be best. Careful examination, especially under angled lighting with scar mapping will give you an understanding of what are the best options for your scars.
All the best,
