Can Dermal Fillers help acne scars?

dermal fillers for acne scars

Even if the worst of your acne-ridden days are long gone, the evidence can remain on your face. Acne affects nearly all of us at some point but long-term physical scarring affects 20% of acne sufferers. At our skin clinic in Bournemouth, we understand that acne scarring can have deep impact on your self-esteem. Many of our patients talk about the impact of scarring has on their daily routine. But here we discuss how acne scarring can be treated with dermal fillers to help you feel confident in your own skin.

How dermal fillers treat acne scars

Dermal fillers in Bournemouth are ideal for treating specific types of acne scars. The treatment is most effective for ‘rolling’ scars (a wave-like indentation in the skin) and ‘boxcar’ scars (similar to chicken pox scars). The hyaluronic acid from the facial fillers are injected into the skin to plump the indentation. This adds volume in the skin to create a smooth surface texture.

What to expect

We recommend having an in-depth skin consultation with your facial aesthetic practitioner before starting treatment. They will discuss with you your requirements and the best type of dermal filler for your treatment. During your cosmetic treatment, your skin will be cleansed, and the dermal fillers will be injected into the desired areas. You may feel a little stinging sensation, but this discomfort is only temporary. The procedure is simple, and the results can be seen immediately.

Other cosmetic treatments for acne

If you are suffering from acne on a regular basis, try a chemical peel in Bournemouth. Chemical peels are very effective at decreasing acne breakouts and can help fade the signs of discolouration.
