Can Fillers Help My Scars Go Away?

Can Fillers Help My Scars Go Away?

You’ve probably heard that dermal fillers are miracle workers for solving skin laxity problems that lead to wrinkles, drooping, and facial asymmetry. But did you know that fillers can also minimize scarring? Many don’t and are often surprised to find out that fillers also carry this significant benefit.

Dr. Alexis Stephens offers a range of fillers that have helped many patients lose self-consciousness over acne scarring and other types of depressed scars. As always, Dr. Stephens’ approach is individualized to your needs and preferences. She’s your partner in helping you achieve the look you long for.

How dermal fillers work

Dermal fillers are injected into your skin and contain a gel that plumps it, making up for the loss of collagen that naturally happens as we age. Collagen is the protein your body produces that’s responsible for increasing its resilience and flexibility. 

Over time, our bodies begin to produce less collagen, and dermal fillers can bridge that gap. 

At Parkland Dermatology & Cosmetic Surgery, Dr. Stephens has embraced only the best, most effective dermal fillers for her patients. She provides treatment using Juvederm, Restylane, and Revanesse Versa, all of which contain hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that actually stimulates collagen production.  

How can dermal fillers address facial scarring?

Just as dermal fillers plump skin to minimize wrinkles, they can also serve to level out your skin if you’re affected by acne scars that are depressed or pit-like and sunken compared to the rest of your facial skin surface. Fillers do this by elevating the scarred skin depressions and encouraging more collagen production. 

In addition to the excellent and long-lasting results that dermal fillers have for those with acne scarring — anywhere from six months to two years, depending on the filler used — numerous other benefits contribute to the treatment’s popularity:

Dermal filler treatment for acne scarring can be a game changer for those who receive it since studies show that 95% of acne sufferers do experience scarring — and it contributes to lasting depression and low self-esteem. 

Don’t live with the fallout your acne scars have caused any longer. Talk to Dr. Stephens about the promise of dermal fillers for addressing the problem.
