Acne scars

Hi thanks to share your concern,to begin with a good skin priming with topical retinoids and then followed by combined modality of treatment with microdermabrasion and microneedling done in sessions will produce marked improvement in your skin texture and scar remodelling .sun protection is mandatory with sunscreen during treatment .however do consult a board certified dermatologist and get it treated.


Advanced Acne scar treatment needs much more than home remedies. Prevention is the key!

These acne scars differ in size, shape and color, and they need a series of treatments with different types of lasers and RF microneedling, which can address the pigmentation, vascularity, and texture. I would also try microneedling with platelet rich plasma, fillers, such as PLLA, and Bellafill. Good skin care regimen with sunscreen should be prioritized as well!

See an expert for best results with acne scarring treatment with lasers, microneedling/prp, fillers

This will require a combination approach of lasers, microneedling/prp, subcision and fillers. I recommend a formal evaluation with a cosmetic dermatologist for treatment for acne scarring treatment options. It will take a series of treatments to get improvement.

Dark acne scars need combo therapy

These need a combination of Excel V laser, Infini and possibly Bellafill treatments. Multiple treatments will be needed. Subcision, PRP, chemical peels and good skin care also are probably needed. You will get improvements but not resolution of you scars.
