What type of treatment for acne scarring would be best for me? (photos)

I am 21 years old, male and ethnically indian (south). I started suffering from severe outbreaks about 2 years ago and following that developed several acne scars( only on my cheeks). What type of treatments would you recommend to the best possible results?

@Medicalstudentg Hi firstly I see your name is "medicalstudent," I see your a student and as such that is ok, ... but we do not allow anyone offering medical advice / providers here. It is best if everyone sees a board certified Dr for their treatment.

That being said in Southern India, ... a treatment for chicken pox scars / boxcars is punch excision which is popular. Other treatments are some HA filler under the scar with a bit of needling or subcision. For your Linear scars they need subcision and some HA filler. Laser will be needed afterwards for the skin's texture. Treat manually and then goto energy devices. Goto someone experienced with your skin type, ask for lots of pictures of your exact issue they treated. 

Start using a retinoid nightly at home and something for skin facing like a hydroquinone to prevent pigmentation issues from the treatments when you do them.

Thanks for the quick reply. I do not intend to give any advice here since I myself need some haha. 

However I do live in Frankfurt,Germany does this change anything in the treatment procedure or does it remain the same?

Hey!

Another German here living in Hessen :) 

Personally I would get treated by Dr Emil as german derms are easily dismissive, push laser and they can't deal with dark skin most of the time. You need manual Methods which Emil is good in.

Viel Glück!

Thank you  very much for the reply and the tip. Is Dr.Emil the one in Denmark? Could you also recommend some doctor in germany if possible as i would like different opinions and options?

@Medicalstudentg Your welcome. @SaraTheGerman was right. We do not have a excellent Dr in Germany and I have helped thousands. Your more than welcome to consult with a few derms and plastics and pick one if you wish. Be aware this is a very very specialized field and many will just blast you with lasers w/ default settings that are not customized to you or your skin type. Lots of "General" derms have lasers out there. Goto the main scar treatments sub, ... find the pinned faq, bottom of that are the Dr's.

Options are up to you, ... there are lasers as I discussed above, and manual methods which are the correct way to target scars (more effective). The Dr's in Germany who have done these procedures are not that good, but feel free to talk to Sara about them.

If you find someone amazing let me know, I hear about Dr's all the time.

The only one I could think of is Dr Alamouti in Herne.. he's is also recommend in the FAQ. He charges a lot tho and he is not an acne scar specialist. Dr Emil for manual Methods is a good start and things like Microneedling RF are available in a lot of places in Germany and Austria, you just have to ask a lot of questions making sure they have the skills to handle the energy device.
