Treatment of deep scars on the cheeks in Los Angeles
I would recommend a combination of Plato's Scar Serum, subcision, fillers, ematrix, and fractional lasers to reduce scarring on your cheek.
Pitted Scarring -- Requires Combination of Fractional Laser Resurfacing, Fillers Like Bellafill, Subcision and Eclipse Micropen
I suggest seeing a cosmetic dermatologist with experience to determine what combinations are best. Pitted scars need TCA cross or surgical removal along with lasers and microneedling. Best, Dr. Emer.
Deep, pitted, recessed scar
This is a difficult scar to treat. Surgical excision of the scar could be considered but the wound closure would require a skin flap and would leave significant scarring. Two or three serial excisions done over time might be considered whereby only part of the scar is removed each time and the skin is closed, allowing the skin to heal and stretch before the next removal. See a plastic surgeon or surgical dermatologist for in person consultation. Best of luck.
