Treatment for Severe Acne Scars

Hi Steve. As you have mentioned, your scars are very deep and significant.  While there are multiple options for you, here are a few ideas.  At our practice, we would have you undergo 3-5 very deep fractional resurfacing procedures (up to 1000 microns on the cheeks).  While these treatments will provide appreciable improvement, no one can guarantee you a certain % improvement.  

You may also want to consider a traditional procedure called dermabrasion (NOT microdermabrasion) and also surgical punch excision in some areas.

Severe Acne Scars

I have many patients who have been successfully treated with severe acne but it requires multiple treatments with lasers such as eMatrix and Fraxel and fillers such as Restylane.  Please consult an expert.  Best, Dr. Green

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

this needs a series of treatments with punch excisions, lasers, subcisions and TCA Cross. please see an expert.  Best, Dr. Emer.
