What type of treatment would be best for my Acne Scarring? (photos)
Doctor Answers 2
There are many different modalities that we have used to treat acne scarring. I have used fractional nonablative laser (Palomar ICON 1540 with XD and XF) which works very well, Picosure Focus Lens which has a very low downtime, Infini and Fractional CO2 laser.
I choose the treatment modality based on the patient's skin coloration, their level of downtime that they can accept and go from there. With the nonablative treatments (1540, Picosure Focus), I typically will do 4-6 treatments. With Infini, I typically do 2-4 treatments and with Fractional CO2, I do anywhere from 1-3 treatments. Subscision prior to lasering also helps to augment the clinical response.

Acne scars usually need a combination of treatments, including lasers and microneedling. Lasers will also retexture and smooth your skin. Please see an expert. Best, Dr. Emer
