With light asian skin and acne scarring, what would be the best option?
Yikes ……. I really can’t recommend anything with silicone (link to reasons) and scroll down to the section "Other Dermal Fillers". It’s permanent and some patients react to it 10 years later even with red, permanent bumps. And…… there are still a lot of other options for you.
Also, I love most aestheticians and there are some very dedicated ones but they are not doctors and the information above isn’t correct. The Fraxel (not the Fraxel Restore), the original Fraxel IS an erbium laser (1550 nm). More info on treating acne scarring.
You might want to consider subscision, the fractionated CO2 laser, and Fraxel (erbium) done with different settings, certain fillers (not silicone) to augment these, etc. Please find an expert dermatologist near you and/or ask for the non silicone options. Dr. I
