Fillers for treating atrophic acne scars

Thank you very much for your question.  I use fillers as a finishing touch up treatment for acne scars in most patients.  I will frequently use an HA filler as an initial treatment to ensure that proper elevation and contour are achieved.  Depressed acne scars are one of the very few situations in which I recommend the use of Bellafill.  Treatment of acne scarring requires a tremendous amount of skill, judgment, and experience.  I would strongly recommend undergoing treatment by a physician who has many years experience and following their recommendations.

Atropic acne scars

For atrophic scars, I would use a combination of subcision, HA fillers, fractional lasers, and fractional RF with ematrix to help smooth the contour.
