A patient asked 1 year ago

I struggled with cystic acne in my high school years and it scarred my face pretty bad I went to my dermatologist and was prescribed accutane. I don’t’ have cysts anymore, but now many years later and 9 laser treatments in and I feel like my skin on my face made little to no progress. Thousands of dollars down the drain.

Treatment for Acne Scars

 
Hi and thank you for your question and sorry about the experience. You did not mention the exact type of laser treatments you received for your acne scars and we have many different types of lasers. For acne scarring, our first recommendation is Factional CO2 laser. Some patients also need filler injection and we can use filler such as Bellafill to raise the depressed area of the scar and make it more uniform with the surrounding area, and based on your pictures, some of the deeper scars you have might respond well to filler injection. I hope it helps and good luck!
