Acne scars treatment

Thank you for your question. The best treatment options for your scars depends on the type of scarring you have. There are many types of acne scarring - rolling, boxcar scars and ice pick scars. These types are amenable to many different types of treatment, but results vary for each type of scarring. Any of the modalities that injure the skin with subsequent collagen formation such as fractionated laser, dermaroller, resurfacing lasers, deep peels, etc., may help your condition. Fillers are a good option, specifically Bellafill®, a permanent filler. Bellafil® is FDA approved in treating acne scars. The right modality for you depends on your skin type, expectations, patience, downtime, and cost. I highly recommend you consult with a board certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon to discuss treatment options that best suit your needs. Take care and good luck.
