Forehead acne scarring treatments? (Photo)

Hello doctors, I have shallow acne scarring throughout my forehead. From a distance in certain lighting, its not too noticeable, however up close and in sunlight its very apparent. Can I achieve 90% improvement with these types of scars from 3 intracel, subcision treatments, and 1 enerjet? I'm in my early 20s, and I have Asian skin. What treatments can be applied to maximize results? Is 90% realistic? Thank you!

Subcision, INFINI and PRP, filler and Botox

These are my 4 preferred treatment methods. I would use INFINI and PRP - 3 sessions, with Subcision. Then filler, 2 sessions, the Botox, one session. Expect 70% improvement, if you get 90%, that is lucky, or your Specialist has very good skills. Enerjet does not work (at least in my hands), others maybe more experienced than I am with this procedure, but tried this on many patients, I think there are a lot of other better treatments out there.

I would begin with a combination protocol that includes Ematrix RF, Yag laser, fractional lasers, fillers, and subcision to reduce your acne scars. Best, Dr. KaramanoukianLos AngelesAcne Scars

Forehead acne scarring

I'm not familiar with the devices you mention but the Infini is very close to the Intracel device. It can improve the scars but 90% is probably optimistic. Look for 40-50% improvement. I know improvements are very subjective and hard to quantify. Subcision, Bellafill, and PRP are all good additions to treatment which will improve your outcome.
