A New Fix For Acne Scars

Pitted and depressed acne scars are tough to treat. Deep resurfacing often isn't deep enough to get results. But with the FDA-approval of Perlane comes a new option in treating acne scars.

The very large particles in Perlane are injected deeper into the dermis than other fillers, making this a good choice to raise isolated, depressed acne scars. With pits, what looks tethered down into the skin can first be released with subcision (a minor procedure that uses a needle or very fine scalpel to release the fibers tethering the skin) and then filled at the same time with Perlane. Results of this hyaluronic-acid fix last longer than other non-particle fillers-reportedly nine to twelve months.
