Advice on best treatment plan!


I sufferred from moderate acne in my teen years and have been left with mild scars and PIE especially on my cheeks.

I have seen a dermatologist but wasn’t successful with the scar treatment suggested, which was 4 sessions of microneedling, and have seen only little improvement. I am now 21 and I am not currently using anything for acne control or scarring.

I know my scarring isn’t severe but it is something that’s always bothered me and made me self conscious about. I’m hoping I can get a suggestion of what would be a good treatment plan for my scars!

Thank you!

@kaygoulart21 you seem to have large pores and some icepicks. Perhaps a few surface box cars. 

TCA Cross, do a few sessions of this. Can't tell from the picture if you need some subcision, because scars make shadows, but they look supper shallow the scars and so they would not need them. 

** 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.
