Which works better for all the types of indented acne scarring?

Combination of E Matrix and Fractional laser for acne scars
Generally a combination of treatments is needed to help acne scars. I always look to see if volume is needed which can be provide by Voluma, Lyft, or Sculptra. Then the surface scars need to be treated either with Fraxel or eMatrix Laser. Scar treatments are generally complex and take multiple treatments to have the best results. Best, Dr. Green
Indented scars... what works?
Most of the time we do a combination of treatments as the indented scars are really from multiple causes . Seek a board certified dermatologist who has experience in treating acne scars. Look to see photos of patients with similar type scarring. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Depend on the cause of indentation....
As a general rule, we treat the CAUSE of indentation. Fillers, fat grafting and fractional devices such as CO2, FRAXEL, and INFINI can help regenerate and replace collagen, whilst surgical procedure such as subcision can help with tethered scars.
Examination and photos will assist in regards to the best method of scar revision.
All the best
