Symptoms: Rolling ‘boxcar’ and ‘ice-pick’ acne scars.

Doctor: Dear thanks for your query on ATD.You must have got some improvement with derma roller & ablative LASERS.In my vie w, there is no role of PRP in such cases. Instead, go for Fractional LASERS for ice pick scars.For Boxcars yes autologous fat transfer is a good option.Another option is Subcision followed by derma roller/ FR Laser.I hope it helped you.
