Ice Pick Scars/Acne Scars-TCA Cross, excision, microneedling/prp, lasers

Ice pick scarring needs TCA cross, punch excision and/or surgical removal and often needs to be combined with lasers and microneedling/prp for best results. you should see a scarring expert. Best, Dr. Emer

These are treated best with TCA cross and/or Infini. Some have recommended punch excision but I wouldn't do that.
