Forget The Fraxels; Forget The RF Devices; Acne Scars Respond Well To Subcision & Medical Microneedling
However, without good photos, or still better an in-the-flesh examination to determine scar distensibility, it is difficult to talk in anything more than general terms. To stretch and smooth large areas of the cheeks, one approach might be The Nonsurgical 3D Vectoring Facelift. For indented scars, such as rolling scars and boxcar scars, subcision would be an option. For pit scars, the CROSS technique might be considered or a light electrodessication with an epilating needle slid down the length of the pit in order to close it off. For surface textural and pigmentary irregularities a series of fractional microneedling resurfacing procedures may be in order. The number of treatments required for each of the above would of course be determined by your individual needs. Details on. each of these procedures can be found elsewhere in the archives of Realself.com
The point is that you would do well to seek consultation with a board certified aesthetic physician with extensive experience and expertise in all forms of acne scar treatments, and not just to someone hawking the latest purported "next big thing" to come along.
RF Microneedling is very good for acne scars in darker skin types
