Acne Scar Holes, Ice Pick Scars How to improve these scars

Ice pick scars are one of the most difficult to treat. You need to get them to raise up to the surrounding more normal unscarred skin. One great option is TCA cross method. Fractional resurfacing can also lead them to come up more. More concentrated laser resurfacing on the ice pick scars are another option.

Fractional Laser/ Fractional Rf are good options for you.

You can consider a clinic which has facilities for fractional resurfacing - either a laser or a fractional radiofrequency device. If you are on the darker side, consider doing a small test area, before having the treatment done on a larger area.

Good luck!

Erbium and CO2 lasers treat acne scars well

Good question. There are many options to treat acne scarring, so to achieve the best results for your specific case, consult an experienced specialist with a reputable practice. Lasers are a great way to resurface the skin and reduce scars. More specifically, there are two lasers that can achieve this. The Erbium laser is a state-of-the-art laser that resurfaces the skin and reduce scars in under an hour. The results are almost instant, and only about 3-4 days of downtime are required. Another option is the CO2 laser. The CO2 laser penetrates the skin deeper than the Erbium; therefore, the results are a little better, but you would need about 7-10 days of downtime. Also, because this laser is more invasive, you do not need multiple treatments like the Erbium.
