How to get rid of rolling acne scars? (photo)

Hi there, From your photo, you do have rolling scars and some box scars. I would recommend a combination of subscision (+/- collagen stimulators), fractional CO2 lasers and fillers. Multiple sessions will be required for your case with an interval of at least 4 weeks. Results do depend on a sufficient number of treatment sessions and in addition, these treatments are largely operator-dependent as there can be literally hundreds of settings for each laser, the manner in which the laser beams are administered to the scar, coverage, etc.
