It's not the technology
It is not the laser nor the acid nor any technology that
makes the difference in treating acne scars. It is the doctor's creativity with
his/her knowledge, training and experience of the different technologies and
his/her intelligent reading of your problem where the technology will be
applied, that will decide the best treatment plan for you. I heard so many
people who came to my office saying "Oh, I had this and that treatment
already, nothing worked." After reading their medical records, no wonder
nothing worked. I've seem so many cases
where the scars were treated over and over again with kid gloves when it should
be treated with Mayweather's gloves. For example, when you have very deep scars
that you can actually fill them in with putty, no amount of Fraxel can take
care of this. The treatment has to match the problem. The scars are much worse
under the skin. Sometimes, they are so hard like a rock that a sharp needle
cannot even go through it. When I treat acne scars, I don't simple look at the
top of the skin, I also have to figure out what is below the skin. Evaluating
the top and bottom of the skin is very important to establish a treatment plan.
I hope you find the right doctor to treat your problem. Good luck.

If you could post before and after photos it might help determine why nothing is working after you have had so many treatments. I find a combination of fillers and eMatrix generally works best for my patients with acne scars. Best, Dr. Green
