Acne Scarring -- Requires a Combination of Laser Resurfacing, Infini/Intensif RF, Fillers (Bellafill), Eclipse Micropen/PRP
you really need a combination of fillers, punch excision, TCA cross and lasers. Subcision may help but an in person consultation is needed. Best, Dr. Emer.
Improving acne scars
Part of your problem is volume loss. I would replace this with Bellafill and at same time fill the scars. Infini in combination is a good choice. TCA cross is for ice pick scars. Subcision is done during Bellafill injections if done properly.
Acne Scarring Treatment
HI, we have found success with combining BellaFill Injections along with a dermapen/laser or Vivace procedure for treating acne scars. This is the best combination to fill in and smooth out the scarring. Good luck!

A combination of fillers, lasers, TCA and PRP will all help improve these scars. Treating these types of scars is a complicated process that can be improved through several modalities. Best, Dr. Green
Acne scars and Discoloration
We start with a good skin care regimen to work in concert with treatments to prepare skin, speed correction and maintain results. For prevention of further discoloration use spf of 50 containing zinc oxide or titanium dioxide. For color correction you may consider IPL photofacial. For texture improvement add laser or radiofrequency resurfacing. There is less downtime with radiofrequency. Addition of PRP (platelet-rich protein) enhances results and can be applied topically immediately following resurfacing. Another alternative is Vampire Facelift which incorporates hyaluronic acid filler and PRP for improvement of texture, shape and color in a single treatment that improves over time.
