Getting the right combination for acne and scarring with lasers, microneedling/prp and fillers

I suggest you get a formal evaluation with a cosmetic dermatologist who can give you a plan for both acne and scarring. There are many combination of treatments that can be used such as lasers, microneedling/PRP, fillers. See an expert. Best, Dr. Emer.

Acne and Acne Scars

A combination of fillers and microneedling with PRP and Fraxel or eMatrix laser would improve your scars.  The acne needs to be treated first either with antibiotics or Accutane, or other methods depending on the cause.  Please consult a board certified dermatologist to assess and evaluate your acne.  Best, Dr. Green

Acne scars don't respond to OTC meds

You need to have the Infini for best results with your acne scars. Bellafill will be helpful for the deeper scars. Other techniques: laser resurfacing, TCA cross, PRP might also be helpful. See link.

Acne with Scarring

These days, in the hands of experienced specialists, acne and acne scarring may be treated simultaneously.  A combination of medications such as Accutane, and fractionated laser or radio frequency micro needling can produce excellent results within a few months.  Best wishes, Shobhan.

BBL and oral medication

Broad Band Light therapy(from Sciton) has been known to be effective for active acne and early scar prevention and early treatment.  Also you may combine with oral antibiotics.
