Acne Scarring -- Requires a Combination of Fractional Laser Resurfacing, Fillers Like Bellafill, Subcision and Eclipse Micropen
Acne scar treatments in dark skin
A combination of injectables such as Sculptra to build up collagen and lasers such as EMatrix will greatly help improve the appearance of these scars. It will take at least four laser treatments to improve these challenging scars. Best, Dr. Green

The majority of patients will have a collection of different scar types, and hence a tailored treatment METHOD will be best. Careful examination, especially under angled lighting with scar mapping will give you an understanding of what are the best options for your scars. In your case, you will require a combination of fractional energy devices, subcision, and dermal filling. Cost wise, I can not comment as this is based upon your insurance cover.
In Australia, these treatments are partially covered under our Medicare system. In the US, it is dependent on who you see.
All the best,
