Acne Scarring -- Requires a Combination of Fractional Laser Resurfacing, Fillers Like Bellafill, Subcision and Eclipse Micropen
You need a cosmetic dermatologist who specializes in acne scarring/pigmentation and does a combination of treatments including: 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 Venus Viva to improve the scars and give long term collagen production. There are many options but you want someone who can customize a regimen for your short and long term goals based on your individual situation. Best, Dr. Emer.
Best treatment for Acne scars in Dark Skin
The best treatment for acne scars with darker skin is the Ematrix. It will reduce the scars and does not run the risk of hyperpigmentation. Best to consult a dermatologist whose expertise is in acne scars. Best, Dr. Green
Multiple treatments for targeted scars. IMO a combination of TCA CROSS, Fractional lasers, and fillers will address 70-80% of scars. In your skin type, the number of fractional laser treatments must increase, as the power and density of lasers will need to be conservative.
The atrophic scars will benefit from a tiny bit of dermal fillers such as Juvederm at the end.
All the best
