Restylane: Q&AAsk a Question
Options for Reducing Facial Scars - Restylane or Subcision?
I have a couple trauma and chickenpock scars on my forehead and two on my cheeks. I recently visited a dermatologist in the Atlanta area and he recommended doing a subcision with fascia lata. I'm very skeptical about the fascia lata as it donated by someone through American Red Cross.
Although he mentioned another option was to use Restylane as filler instead of the fascia lata, I'm looking for a permanent fix. I also looked into Fraxel, but the doctor told me that I could get hyperpigmentation because of my Indian skin color. I'm not sure what to do now.
Should I choose the subcision with fascia lata or Restylane, or could there be other options?
Indented facial scars may be improved with a combination of subcision and filler injection.
Subcision alone for a scar is effective, and Restylane adds to benefit.
