Will Aquamid or Bio-alcamid Injections Get Rid of Acne Scars?

I've heard that collagen, hyaluronic acid injections are temporary solution for acne scars. So do you suggest Aquamid or  Bio-alcamid injections as permanent solution for acne scars?

 Acne scars can be improved to some degree but NOT eliminated by any technology.   Best to look for improvement but not eradication or you will be disappointed.

Permanent fillers for acne scarring

I have not heard of favorable experiences with Bio-alacmid and I am reluctant to recommend it's use.

Acne scars come in many forms: ice pick, shallow depressions, cysts and sinuses, etc.

It is likely that any filler will provide some correction. However, with permanent fillers you must be sure that the area is free of infection or inflammation.
