Not That Great for Acne Scarring - New Jersey

I had Juvederm done for depressed areas on my chin, and also for ice pick acne scarring on my cheek. The Juvederm worked great for my chin. I'm really pleased.

I had this done in the past and the results lasted longer than 1 year. The scarring on my cheek is another matter. I have lumpy areas six months later where the solution had been injected. I went back to my doctor who told me that the Juvederm did not fill in the acne scars, but instead "migrated" to other areas of my cheek!

He said he could inject cortisone into those areas to try to dissolve the Juvederm, or just let it dissolve by itself. I'm going with the latter.

I had also read somewhere that ice pick acne scarring doesn't do well with Juvederm; wish I'd have known that sooner.
