Suffering from acne scars

I have undergone fractional co2 laser treatment 2 times by now and I can hardly see any improvement in my scars on my cheeks and forehead. Can someone suggest me what is the right and better treatment for acne scars? I have mixture of scars, some are deep and some are shallow.

Basically there are 4 types of acne scars. Depending on that treatment modalities can be selected. There are different ways to achieve a flawless skin after acne and it needs medical interventions. Acne treatment has multiple stages - to control new breakouts, to clear the sequalae (pigmentation and scars) and to prevent a relapse. If you have active acne lesions, it should be controlled on priority basis. Acne scar and pores can be treated with subcision, dermaroller, fractional CO2 lasers, chemical peels and likewise. Remember combining treatment modalities help to achieve desired results earlier. Your dermatologist will decide a treatment plan for you after a consultation.
