Case 16- Combined lasers for treating acne scarring in Ethnic skin

Diagnosis: Rolling and anchored scars, mixed scars in Ethnic skin.
Treatment: Combined Laser resurfacing by Dr Davin Lim and Emily Hyde RN. Skin colour changes following deep resurfacing in Ethnic skin are commonly seen. These changes resolve over the months. Rolling acne scars such as these are the hardest to treat. Ideally I would like to complete treatments with dermal filling.

Diagnosis: Rolling and atrophic scars on the temples, dark skin acne scars
Treatment: Skin Needling. This procedure is outdated, fractional erbium and CO2 lasers provide much better results than skin needling. Laser treatments are safer, with fewer treatments needed. Skin needling is NOT FRACTIONAL RESURFACING.
