Which treatment is best-suited for ice pick scars, i.e INTRAcel, Venus Viva, subcision?
From the photos, you have primarily boxcar type acne scars rather than ice pick scars.
For boxcar type scars, a variety of effective treatment solutions exist. They include subcision, fractional CO2 laser, fractional microneedle RF and fractional pico-laser. Treatments may be combined to give better results subject to the expertise of your doctor.
There is really no one best treatment that triumphs over the rest. The choice of the preferred treatment often depends on several considerations such as:
- tolerability of downtime,
- doctor’s expertise and experience,
- available equipment and
- cost considerations.
More details about the above treatments may be found in the Acne Scar Treatment section of this forum.
