Acne Scarring -- Requires a Combination of Fractional Laser Resurfacing, Fillers Like Bellafill, Subcision and Eclipse Micropen
Combination treatments are best.
Acne scar and micro-needling
Acne scars can be a real challenge to treat depending various factors
including type, age, skin type, ect. While microneedling certainly can help
improve the scars and may be a good place to start, most cases require multiple
treatment platforms as well as possible injectable fillers to get the best
improvement. Patient expectations must be taken into consideration. I always
emphasize to patients that while treatments may improve the area, complete
resolution of the scars may not occur. Good luck.

Micro-Needling for Acne Scarring
I believe that you will get great results by combining your micro-needling treatments with PRP. The PRP can be injected into the areas that areas that are depressed, increasing the collagen production and stimulation, resulting in a smoother texture. This can essentially "fill" those divets. In my practice, we have a number of techniques that are used specifically for treating acne scarring. Going deep enough on those particular areas will be important as well as the combination of PRP. You can expect smoother texture, tone and correction with 3-4 treatments. Some patients require 4-6 treatments.
Great Candidate For Microneedling With PRP
Hello and thank you for your question. You would be a perfect candidate for microneedling. I would trust your provider at the depth they use to treat the areas. You will see improvement with one treatment, however I would recommend getting aggressive and spacing your treatments 3-4 weeks apart using PRP with your treatment and you will see a significant improvement. Just watch your acne scars diminish! Hope this helps!
