Dealing with acne is challenging enough, let alone the unsightly scars that can result. Acne scars come in numerous forms, including those that cause deep pits in the face. Rather than feeling self-conscious about acne scarring or using tons of makeup attempting to cover it up, consider a wrinkle filler procedure.
Several injectable wrinkle fillers do more than fill in lines, wrinkles, and folds on the face–they also treat acne scarring. Let’s take a look at some of the dermal fillers used for acne scarring by The Kopelson Clinic in Beverly Hills:
A filler similar to Restylane, Perlane works by replenishing skin with hyaluronic acid. Found naturally in the body, hyaluronic acid diminishes over time, resulting in skin that’s wrinkled, lined, and saggy. Perlane smoothes wrinkles and facial folds, and is often used around the mid-cheek area, at the corners of the lips and below the mouth, and in naso-labial folds. It is also used to restore volume and add definition to the chin and jawline. It makes a fantastic acne scar treatment as well.
Results are immediately apparent and last for eight to 12 months.
Another hyaluronic acid filler, Juvederm restores lost volume to the face. It is frequently injected into the mid-cheek area to treat a “sunken appearance.” The dermal filler is also used to fill in lines, wrinkles, and scars. A favorite lip filler, Juvederm is softer than other options and settles perfectly. Many patients say it feels like nothing was injected.
Results are immediate, and last for six to 12 months.
Radiesse is a volumizing filler designed to decrease the body’s need for repeat implantation. A favorite filler for actors and models, Radiesse results last a year or longer. Injected into the dermis, it stimulates new collagen production, which is why it lasts longer than other dermal fillers. In addition to smoothing wrinkles and lines, Radiesse fills in acne and numerous other types of scars.
