My Doctor has recommended subcision and Artefil in the same sitting for acne scars on my cheeks. I have never received fillers before. My question is, is it a good idea to use a permanent filler to start out? Could fillers in your cheeks change your expression and/or face at all? Should I start with a temporary filler first?
Fillers (ArteFill) and Subcision For Acne Scars?

Artefill for Acne Scarring
Acne scar treatments.
Subcisions with a filler of any kind is good and should also be finished off with a spot dermabrasion over the scar. Artefill is fine since you use so small amount with subcisions that it doesn't matter what filler you use. It is mainly there to keep the fibrous bands from rejoining and if it gives a little lift , then that's even better. Sincerely,
