About 4 months ago my cat scratched me on my cheek. After it healed I was left with a long indebted scar. I have been getting eclipse micropen treatments, I have had 3, I have 1 more to go. I've seen some improvement but not as much as I was hoping for. After my 4th treatment, if I'm still not happy, what are my other options?

a)if indent: would recommend a filler
b)if read: would recommend IPL
c)if raised: would recommend silicone gel
A combination approach would be best. This can be improved with a combination of lasers and microneedling/prp. I recommend seeing a cosmetic dermatologist for a formal evaluation. Best, Dr. Emer
