Treat your acne first, then revise scars... read more.
Good to know that you are happy with V Beam- this laser can help with red acne scars, but collagen remodelling is minimal with V Beam (in comparison to fractionally ablative lasers).
90% is a high mark for scar improvement, I would say given your scar types (Box, ice-pick-shallow, mixed and atrophic) you will require multiple treatment methods over months.
I would perform TCA CROSS first to raise deep scars, followed by subscision and fractional CO2 (same session), followed by eMatrix RF. Having good baseline photos and realistic expectations are essential if you plan to undertake acne scar revision.
