Classifying my acne scars (Angular Lighting included)

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

Attached below are pictures of both my cheeks under both regular and angular lighting. Could you please have a look at the pictures and tell me how they would be classified based on type (atrophic, hypertrophic, rolling, boxcar?) and severity (mild, moderate, severe?). Also, could you please advise me the best course of action to take regarding improving these scars like subcision, fillers, TCA, lasers, etc? I'm a 19 year old male of Asian Indian descent and have recently got my acne under control and use differin gel every night while taking doxycycline tablets daily. I also dermaroll once per week using a 0.5 mm dermaroller and apply collagen cream every day after I wash my face.

@Dew Bob Scars are extremely mild. Some rolling scars, perhaps a few icepicks. Your 19 and will improve some on your own. 

** Please Note I offer to acne scar suffers a "more" "customized" (private) consultation than the above general advice. Analysis, answering questions, ongoing support by Private Messaging. Feel free to message me there. Be patient as I can get over 100+ of the worst acne scar cases to help, it "may" take me up to 48 hours to respond.

Checkout the main scar treatments sub, find the FAQ pinned on top there, goto the bottom, there are Dr's or call around and ask who does cannula subcision or nokor subcision (needle type) to dermatologists and or plastic surgeons, consult a few before you decide who you like, even if you have to pay as treatment is expensive, better like them. Ask how many subcisions they do a month and if they treat your skin type. If they just do laser run they will just blast you and not solve your issue.
