Question: I have a few depressed acne scars on my face. Would a filler such as Juvederm or Restylane make the scars less notable?
Answer: The management of acne scars quite often requires a multi-faceted approach. Skin resurfacing may have some role to play depending on exactly the scars and the nature of the skin. Also, some fillers to try to even out the skin may have a role. In general, the goals of an acne scar treatment is to try to make the depressed scar at the same level as the other skin as well as to try to create an even color between the adjacent skin so that that area is not noticeable. These are the principals on how this is done and it really depends on using a multiple group of techniques.
