What is the best treatment for moderate ice pick scarring caused by acne on cheeks? (Photo)

It takes healthy collagen about 6 months to form, so scar improvement is not immediate. The Ematrix treatments can improve your concerns with a series of treatments done one month apart.
It is best to consult with a Board Certified Dermatologist to see if this treatment is best for you and how many sessions you will need.
Moderate acne scarring
The two best treatments for moderate acne scars is the Fraxel laser and eMatrix. The decision on which laser to use depends on skin type. For facial scarring such as yours it will take several treatments spaced about one month apart for the best results. Please consult a board certified dermatologist with a great deal of experience with lasers and scarring for the best results.
Profractional Laser Resurfacing for Acne Scars
The typical patient would have the procedure between 1-3 times spaced 4-8 weeks apart and with 5-7 days of recovery each time.
