For severe acne scars, treatment results tend to be poorer.
You may consider the following strategies:
Fractional CO2 Laser Treatment is effective for treating most kinds of atrophic acne scar and has a downtime of 5 - 10 days.
Subcision is when a small needle is used to release the fibrous scar tissue beneath the scar. As the area heals, the new collagen also helps to push the base of the acne scar up.
Scar excision involves using a tiny hole-punch like device to cut out the acne scar. The wound is then sutured closed, with the stitch removed within a week
For severe acne scars, sometimes only 20-30% overall improvement may be achieved.
For your acne scars, personally I would recommend:
Dermal Rollers will not have effective results. Dermal Rollers are treatment tools with microneedles that are used to create micro punctured holes so that the skin will secrete collagen to the micro punctured holes in order to repair the damaged skin cells.
I think there is definitely still room for improvement so do not lose hope yet.
