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

You need a vascular laser and steroid injections to help this type of scar. We like the yellow laser for this.  Best, Dr. Emer.

I would suggest a combination of Plato's Scar Serum, fractional laser, IIT, and pulsed dye lasers for your scars.
