Correction of depressed scars with fillers

I have had great success with lifting depressed scars with injection of dermal fillers such as Restylane or Juvederm. If you are dissatisfied with your results, you should follow up with your doctor. If the scar is looking raised, you may need to have a bit of the product dissolved with hyaluronidase
