Dermal Fillers For Acne Scars

in Scar

Ugh, you think acne is bad? Wait until it leads to scarring. Scars are the bane of anyone's existence - it is a dirty secret that no one wants to be displayed out in the open. Now, imagine if they're on your face? When you look in the mirror, do you want to be reminded constantly of how acne has affected you physically and emotionally? If left untreated, acne scars can lower anyone's self-esteem.

However, all is not lost. Medical advancements have developed a way to make these scars hardly noticeable. These procedures are called dermal fillers. There are various kinds of these fillers for acne scars and if you plan to undergo this type of treatment, you should be familiar with the basics of this procedure.

The process for using dermal fillers for acne scars is that the filler will be injected into the areas where your acne scars are so that the components of the filler will raise the surface of the skin. The result will be a smoother look. This is a nonsurgical and very simple procedure that will improve your skin's texture. It is recommended for those who suffer from scarring as a result of severe bouts of acne where the skin is often left with deep scars or hypertrophic scars that look like thickened skin.

You will also probably want to know what these fillers are made of since they will be injected into your face. The first type of dermal filler is called bovine filler. These were first used in 1981 when bovine collagen was first discovered. They are not so commonly used now. Bovine fillers are good for small lines and fine wrinkles but they do not have long-term effects and they can even cause allergic reactions in some people.

These days, bovine fillers are made with hyalluronic acid. This substance occurs naturally in the human body and easily binds with water. The results are astounding. Patients who have used dermal fillers with hyalluronic acid have a softer and more natural look after their treatments. Aside from the fact that hyalluronic acid lasts longer, this type of dermal filler appeals to both doctors and patients since they can be easily adjusted or corrected.

Before deciding to get these fillers to treat your acne scars, you should first consult a trusted and accredited dermatologist. Not all forms of scars and skin types can benefit from this type of skin procedure. You should know as well that dermal fillers can easily set you back anywhere from $300 to $2000 for each treatment. Why the large range? The prices depend on the severity of your skin condition as well as the area that needs to be treated.
