Identification of type of acne scars and advice for acne scars

Hi! I have been suffering from acne from past 1 year. Now it has cleared off but I can see the scars that kind of upset me alot. 

I can't identify what sort of scar I have but I think it is mixed. I would love to know the types on my face and what are the availabe treatment options. I have also attached some pictures and tried to capture the scars in different lighting . My right cheek has some deep scars while the left is a bit better. I also have pigmentation (red in colour) associated with acne. 

I live in Sweden . If someone knows or have an experience with a doctor that would be great to share.

Looking forward to some advice.

Hi there

See Dr Emil in Denmark.

I see active acne still, but you say that is under control If there are pimples and treatment is done it can make the situation worse. 

You mainly have box cars, some rolling scars, and some icepicks. I see hyperpigementation as well.

I would do a few sessions of subcision with some HA filler or you could do Chinese cupping (amazon).

TCA Cross for your icepicks.

Rf needling for the box cars, and or some erbium laser to soften them if you need some more improvement. 

A few tca peels for texture or a laser peel.

Picosure or vascular laser for your discolorartion.

Use tretinorin,retin-a, or differin nightly. Also the pca gel for hyperpigmentation from Amazon, to work on hyperpigmentation and prevent further issues.
