Acne scars and dermabrassion?
Doctor Answers 4
Multiple treatments based upon you acne scar TYPE= best outcomes.
Acne scar revision is a specialised field. For the best results, one should target the acne scar type with ideal treatments. For example deep ice pick scars, and narrow box car scars can be treated with TCA CROSS peels, mixed scars, rolling, and atrophic scars treated with fractional devices such as Fraxel, fractional lasers, and INFINI radiofrequency. Atrophic scars (depressions) can be treated with either fat grafts, or with HA dermal fillers. Tethered and anchored scars are best treated with surgery.
The majority of patients will have a collection of different scar types, and hence a tailored treatment METHOD will be best. Careful examination, especially under angled lighting with scar mapping will give you an understanding of what are the best options for your scars.
All the best,

Depending on the nature of the scars and your skin type you may not be a candidate for CO2 laser. I would consult a board certified dermatologist who is an expert with scars and inquire about EMatrix. Best, Dr. Green
