Can you recommend an expert to remove moderate acne scars in Los Angeles area?

Can I ask for your recommendation of experts who treat acne scars in Los Angeles area? I have gone through 6 Fraxel/micro-needling procedures. The first few treatments showed significant improvements. The last two micro-needling treatments actually made my scars more obvious as they became bigger. Can someone who has gone through the same issue recommend experts who treat acne scars? I have very sensitive skin. Thank you for your kind help!

Dr Emer is all over it. His techniques and methods are spot on, and his reviews excellent. Additionally, he is a Board Certified Dermatologist who trained with a few of the people I know very well. My advice, see him if you are in LA. All the best, Dr Davin LimBrisbane, Australia.

Acne scarring

It is best to have an in-person examination to determine the exact type of scars that you have. Deeper ice-pick scars are best treateded with surgical excision whereas flat rolling or boxcar scars can be better treated with subcision, fillers, microneedling, chemical peels, or energy-based treatments. By reviewing your previous treatment history and evaluating the current condition of your scars, your physician should be able to customize a plan to give you more improvement. Hope this helps!

Acne Scarring -- Requires a Combination of Fractional Laser Resurfacing, Fillers Like Bellafill, Subcision and Eclipse Micropen

Acne scarring requires a combination approach.  I suggest seeing an expert in lasers who does a significant amount of combination therapies -- lasers, fillers, subcision, surgery -- for acne scarring.  Best, Dr. Emer.
