DERMAL FILLERS AND ACNE SCARS

Your acne may be a thing of the past, but if you’re left with unsightly scars, the pain and self-consciousness can linger. Acne scars rarely diminish over time, but there are some effective, non-invasive treatments to improve their appearance.

Learn more about the benefits of dermal fillers for reducing or eliminating acne scars.

Types of Acne Scars

People experience several types of acne scars, all of which respond differently to treatment.

What are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are injectable skin fillers made from hyaluronic acid, a naturally-occurring substance in the body. They are usually used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as to restore facial volume lost with age and to stimulate the production of collagen.

Dermal fillers, such as Radiesse and Restylane, can be effective for many of these acne scars. These fillers work to improve the texture of the skin, which smooths the surface and reduces the appearance of certain types of scars.

Benefits of Dermal Fillers for Acne Scars

Dermal fillers are non-invasive, injectable skin treatments that give immediate results with minimal recovery time. Following an injection for acne scars, you will likely notice better texture immediately, with continued improvement in the following months. Depending on the type and severity of the scarring, the results can last up to a year.

In addition to the initial results, dermal fillers can also bring the scars closer to the surface of the skin, which breaks up the scar tissue and stimulates collagen production. Over time, the appearance of acne scars will improve and will require less frequent, milder treatments in the future.

Other Treatments for Acne Scars

Dermal fillers are effective for many types of acne scars, but some types may benefit from different treatments.

For mild scarring, chemical peels are a great option. This procedure uses a chemical solution to speed up skin cell turnover, which results in skin cell death of the top layer of skin. During the healing process, this top layer of skin peels off, revealing a smooth, even skin tone. After a series of chemical peels, the appearance of acne scars and discoloration is reduced.

Laser acne treatment is excellent for both current acne and scarring. This treatment uses a laser to reconstruct the damaged collagen that causes scarring, which remodels the surface of the skin. Like the other scar treatments, patients notice continued improvement of skin appearance over time.
