What type of scar treatment? The borders are slightly raised and somewhat pigmented (Photo)

Facial atrophic scar, borders are slightly raised and pigmented(cant be appreciated in the pic). The pigment is like skintone, very obvious especially with makeup on. Ive done 3 picosure focus 2 weeks apart. This pic is 2 weeks post 3tx of pico. This was original somewhat boxcar and very irregulary shaped in and out, so the borders did improved and and the deep part did effaced a little. I cant afford more pico now, what tx options can i still do to improve this? Esp the pigmented raised border?

These atrophic scars respond well to ematrix RF, fractional lasers, fillers, and subcision to smooth out the dermis.
