Who should I talk to about my Acne Scars, and would I benefit from Laser Treatment? (photos)

Should I seek out a Dermatologist or a Plastic Surgeon about Treating my Acne Scars? Whats a good way to find a Trustworthy, and Reputable Doc? Can I trust just any Dermatologist? Would I be a good Candidate for Laser Treatment?

A combination approach is needed to benefit your scars.  I would recommend consulting a board certified dermatologist who specializes in treating scars for the best results.  A combination of Bellafill, Subcision, Fraxel and Eclipse microneedling will all help treat your scars.  Best, Dr. Green

Choosing an acne scar surgeon? ENGLEWOOD Cliffs, NJ

My recommendation would be to find an acne scar expert. You should look at websites that specialize in acne scars as well as doctor ratings on Real Self. Look to see Photos. Speak to your friends who have had acne scar treatments. The person performing the treatment is more important than the devices that they have available. Hope this helps. Good luck.
