Will subcision and TCA cross help my scars? Doing both together in one week. (Photo)

Hello, I have a consultation next week and i think i want to do subcision and TCA cross. My main question is if the both treatments are effective when done together. Secondly, will i be able to perform suctioning if i have TCA cross? Thanks so much for your input. Pics

Acne Scarring -- Requires a Combination of Fractional Laser Resurfacing, Fillers Like Bellafill, Subcision and Eclipse Micropen

Acne scarring requires a combination approach. Surgery, subcision, or TCA cross for deep or pitted "ice pick" scars. Fillers like Bellafill or Sculptra or Radiesse for broad "boxcar" or "rolling" scars. Eclipse Micropen for all types of scars and improvement in texture and tone. Lasers such as co2 laser resurfacing or Fraxel/Clear+Brilliant or radiofrequency such as Sublative or Viva to improve the scars and give long term collagen production. I suggest consulting with a board certified dermatologist for further assessment. Best, Dr. Emer
