I live in the UK and was wondering what procedures I could use to remove three ice pick scars on my face. (photo)

I often find myself looking at the scars and feeling distressed. I would really appreciate if someone could tell me how I could sort them thanks.

Filler and subcision

These are not ice pick scars but saucer scars. Very easy to treat with filler and subcision. Two sessions will give you an improvement of more than 70%. See video for explanation and how I perform this procedure. All the best,Dr Davin Lim Brisbane, Australia.

Hidef acne scar treatments with sublative RF and skin tightening

Avoid Bellafill. I would recommend a combination of sublative RF, fractional lasers, Yag laser, subcision and HA fillers. Best, Dr. KaramanoukianLos Angeles

Acne Scarring -- Requires a Combination of Fractional Laser Resurfacing, Fillers Like Bellafill, Subcision and Eclipse Micropen

This scarring can be improved with fillers like Bellafill, Sculptra or Radiesse.  Eclipse Micropen will help to improve texture and tone. Lasers such as CO2 laser resurfacing or Fraxel/Clear+Brilliant or radiofrequency such as Skinfinity or Viva to improve the scars and give long term collagen production. I suggest consulting with a board certified dermatologist for further assessment. Best, Dr. Emer

Improving rolling or boxcar scars in dark skin

I think the quickest way to improve these is using Bellafill or something similar. It will give a quick and long lasting result. They are rather deep so Infini would require multiple treatments, but is also an option.
