Acne Scarring

Acne Scarring can be traumatic for you, especially the constant battle with trying to manage your acne. This form of scarring can leave little dents, also known as ice pic scars, which can result in the skin looking uneven.

This dent in the skin, where the spot once was positioned, is caused due to the repair response of the skin where the new collagen being formed is not as even, creating atrophic scars which are due to the acne or chicken pox scars.

Dermal fillers treatment involves injecting a medically developed product under the skin with a fine needle to enhance facial features and plump and fill lines, grooves or sunken areas.

When carefully injected under the atrophic scar, dermal filler can be really useful in creating a more even appearance of the skin by plumping the area of concern.
When dermal fillers are injected into fine lines, wrinkles, or sunken areas of the face, they replenish the hyaluronic acid that has been absorbed into your body over time and help stimulate collagen production, helping you achieve a more even appearance.

There are different types of acne scars that can form, from atrophic to more boxcar scars. A full consultation will be needed to decide which type of treatment will be good for you. Sometimes, using a soft filler maybe ideal, but in other cases other treatments like Microneedling or Laser is better suited.

Once injected, you will see over time your skin will become more even, make up will sit better on the face and creams will take better effect. In some instances, more than one treatment may be needed. This will be discussed in the consultation process. It’s much better when the scars are more centralised than widespread.
