Acne scars come in a variety of types, from raised, red marks to deep pockmarks that can take on a pitted or dented appearance. Smaller, superficial scars can often be reduced with a combination of treatments that remove dead skin cells and help resurface the skin, but fillers like Juvederm or Restylane can be used to treat more severe scars.
When scars create a wavy contour, they can be easily corrected with fillers, which fill the empty space under the scar and help support it. Fillers used in acne scars last longer than when fillers are placed in other areas, like the lips or cheeks, because they are not a dynamic part of the face that is constantly moving.
Keep in mind, fillers are not suitable for “ice-pick” scars because they have a tendency to collect in the skin almost like a blackhead due to their depth.
