Dermal Filler for Deep Acne Scars?

I have a couple deep acne scars that are still very visible after 4 Pixel treatments. They are deep enough to require a filler, which would work best for filling them in?

Hi Tracy,

Dermal fillers are a reasonable option for improving the appearance of deep scars that are still visible after laser resurfacing treatment.  The downside of using a dermal filler is that the improvement, while it is immediate, is only temporary.  Most fillers last between 6-12 months for smoothing out acne scars.  The fillers most commonly used to improve deep acne scars are Restylane, Juvederm, Juvederm Ultra Plus, and Perlane.  Your dermatologist will help you to determine which of these fillers is best for your scars.
