Get Rid of Recessed Scars
Acne could be a thing of the past for you, but discomfort and self-consciousness may continue to linger if you are left with recessive acne scars. These facial scars rarely ever disappear on their own over time. Fortunately, there are effective, non-surgical treatments for improving their appearance.
Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie provides dermal filler injections to improve the appearance of recessed scars for patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding locations.
Acne Scars Types
There are several different types of acne scars that respond differently to treatment. This includes:
- Hypertrophic scars: These are raised scars that appear above the surface of skin
- Rolling scars: These are deep indentations which form a wave-like appearance
- Ice pick scars: These are deep and narrow scars that cause the skin to break out in pits
- Boxcar scars: These indentations resemble chicken pox scars
- Keloid scars: These are again raised scars that extend past the original blemish
How Dermal Fillers Work?
Dermal filler injectables are skin fillers made from hyaluronic acid or compounds. HA is a naturally occurring substance in the human body. Dermal filler injections are used for reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. They are also used for replenishing lost facial volume and stimulating collagen production. Dermal fillers work towards improving the texture of skin and smoothing it. It can be used for reducing the appearance of certain scars.
Use of Dermal Fillers for Reducing Acne Scars
Dermal fillers are non-surgical injectables that provide immediate results with little downtime. You will notice an improvement in skin texture following the acne scars. This will continue to improve over the next few months. Results can last for up to a year depending on the severity and type of scarring.
In addition, dermal fillers bring the scars closer to skin surface. This breaks down the scar tissue and stimulates formation of collagen. Eventually, the appearance of acne scars is reduced. You would require milder and less frequent treatments in future.
Bellafill to Diminish Acne Scars
Bellafill contains bovine collagen in combination with polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA). There is 20 percent polymethylmethacrylate and 80 percent collagen in this FDA approved dermal filler. Acne scars are immediately reduced with the collagen component while polymethylmethacrylate microspheres work towards longer-lasting results.
The primary benefit of this dermal filler is its longevity. You can have results lasting as long as 5 years. However, you should get an allergy test done since it contains bovine components.
Sculptra Acne for Acne Scar Reduction
Sculptra aesthetics is another unique dermal filler injectable that can successfully replace loss of collagen in patients with acne scarring. Sculptra is again an FDA approved dermal filler made from Poly-L-Lactic Acid (PLLA). It stimulates the natural production of collagen and replaces volume loss.
The dermal filler is especially valuable for patients with acne scars since it can replace volume loss in any facial area. It also offers longer-lasting results that can persist for up to two years following cosmetic correction.
