Does cryotherapy work for hypertrophic acne scars on the back? To thin to inject and doctor said they don't have lasers for raised scars.

In brief: Acne scar therapy

I use a "palette of therapies" for acne scars based on the characteristics of the scars in question.
Cryotherapy works well for darker color, and is also used in conjunction with intralesional Kenalog (triamcinolone). However, it does not play much of a primary role in treating scars.
