Thank you for your question. Due to your high risk skin type I would recommend microneedling treatments to help your acne scars. Microneedling will help decrease the appearance of scars by collagen induction therapy. A combination of Filler intradermally into the scars creates collagen in the skin and decreases the appearance of scars.

Rolling scars and brown spots from acne. What treatment is best?

There is no single best treatment for deep acne scars.  Nor is it likely that any doctor can give you "smooth skin without scars."  The goal of your treating physician should be to give you "smoother" skin and less visible scars than you have presently.  To accomplish this, my recommendation would be facial resurfacing (I favor deep chemical peeling achieved with the Hetter Resurfacing Peel), subcision with fillers (I favor Silikon 1000 but will use other fillers instead depending on patient preference), punch excisions, and patience.  The goal of the treatment is to make these scars less visible to others.  To accomplish this goal, you need to find a physician you trust and who is experienced in these treatments.  Have a look at some of the photos in the site below to see the kind of improvement that is possible.  Good luck!
