Ematrix RF for scars
I would use a combination of ematrix RF, fractional lasers, sublation, subcision, TCA Cross, and fillers to improve your scars.
What do you do with ice pick or rolling boxcar scars in the forehead how do you treat this.
Yes your acne has caused scarring in the sense that has led to atrophic tissue loss as well as more like boxcar scars instead of ice pick scars. The way I would treat this would be to basically treat the whole forehead as a volume loss and consider fillers throughout the whole area or some volumizing of this whole area including maybe subcision. And I would consider laser resurfacing in a special way to treat those boxcar scars. We approach acne scars with a multi-layered approach
Deep forehead groove
The groove can be corrected using filler. I use cannulas for this. An HA filler is good for this. TCA Cross is used for ice pick scarring.
