Treatment of Severe Acne Scars
Acne scars- skin type, scar type, down time...
Firstly, you have multiple scar types- rolling, atrophic, tethered, and box car scar. The tethered scars will be your rate limiting factor. You will need subcision. Multiple treatments, followed by non-laser energy devices such as INFINI RF ( In my opinion this out performs fractional CO2, as in your skin type RF INSULATED micro needling will not give you post laser skin darkening or PIH). You will require 3-4 sessions.
Shallow box car scars, ice pick- easy. TCA CROSS.
Some of the atrophic scars will come good with INFINI, but as suggested by Dr Ridenour, you will need filler- fat transfer ( I prefer filler as it is more predicable, and gives the finesse I need).
See the attached 21 min video in the web reference to understand the whole process of scar revision. If you look at my B and As, no two patients are alike, scar revision has to be tailored the patent.
All the best

Your scars are best treated with a combination of fillers to replace the lost volume and lasers. There is no single treatment, particularly with your skin type to treat you in one session. This is a process and cannot be corrected "overnight". Please consult an expert. Best, Dr. Green
