Longevity of Silicone Micro-droplet Injection Results on Acne Scars?

How long will silicone micro-droplet injection last on depressed acne scars?

Removal of silicone injections

Silicone injections are permanent. Shifting of the injection, granuloma formation, and swelling of the injected area can cause longterm problems; as such, our office does not recommend injection of the substance, but rather, its removal.
