Ematrix RF and fillers for acne scars
I would suggest a combination of ematrix RF, fractional laser, subcision, and HA fillers to improve your scars.

There are some options to treat your facial scars. They are more of box car types cars on both cheeks. Your physician has tried several good options. The problem with microdermabrasion and light chemical peels as they won't be able to effectively lower the surrounding skin. Looking at your pictures you look to have more pigment to your skin (unless that is just the lighting) which does raise the risk when using dermabrasion (or fractionated/ablative lassers) of changing the skin color after treatment. There is a technique called subcision whereby a needle is used to help free the scar from the underlying tissue and then filler placed in between. I'm not sure if this is what you had done before but could be the least invasive. Finally, you can replace the depressed scars with fine lines but surgically removing the more bothersome scars and then closing the incision. This would still leave a scar on the face but they would likely be less noticeable..
I'd recommend you consult with a facial plastic surgeon to go over your options in person to help decide what is best.
I hope this helps and good luck.
