Acne Scarring -- Requires a Combination of Fractional Laser Resurfacing, Fillers Like Bellafill, Subcision and Eclipse Micropen
Acne scarring laser treatment
Just as you mentioned, the types of acne scarring that you have are a large determinant of which treatments will be best for you. For example, ice pick scarring requires very deep treatments that are best addressed with a fractional CO2 laser. The pro fractional that you mention is just a brand-name for an erbium laser, which is also ablative, but does not achieve the depth of penetration as well as a CO2 does.
Your best bet is to seek consultation with a fellowship trained laser position who regularly treats acne scarring with different modalities.
To ensure you are receiving the highest level of care, seek out a modernly trained, new-school dermatologic surgeon, oculoplastic surgeon, facial plastic surgeon or plastic surgeon who is board certified and fellowship trained in one of these "core four" cosmetic specialties.
