Dermal fillers can be used to treat depressed acne scars. Dermal fillers will help to raise the indentations and volume loss caused by acne, creating a smoother appearance. Certain acne scars, such as rolling scars and some less defined boxcar scars can be effectively treated with dermal fillers.
About the Procedure
Dermal fillers, while commonly thought of for their applications in wrinkle reduction or lip plumping, can also be used to treat certain types of acne scarring. Rolling scars, which are wave like depressions in the skin, as well as some boxcar scars, which are circular and deep indentations, can both be treated with fillers with great improvement. Hyaluronic acid fillers such as Juvederm or Restylane are commonly used in this application. Significant scarring that doesn’t respond well to fillers may better benefit from subcision. Treatment with dermal fillers will begin by thoroughly cleansing the skin and determining which scars will be filled. The amount of filler used will vary and depend on the number of scars being treated and the severity of the scars. The type of filler will depend on the recommendation by your provider. A needle will then be inserted underneath the scarred area and the filler deposited until all scars have been treated.
