scars can be treated with TCA CROSS peels, mixed scars, rolling, and atrophic
scars treated with fractional devices such as Fraxel, fractional lasers, and INFINI
radiofrequency. Atrophic scars (depressions) can be treated with either fat
grafts, or with HA dermal fillers. Tethered and anchored scars are best treated

Where to go for acne scars that have created rolling, ice pick and box car scars.
I think the key is finding someone that has experience with acne scars. I will try to find someone that can really help you and that has a lot of experience with acne scarring.
