Treating Acne Scars on the Face
There are a combination of treatments to reduce acne scars. From the photo it would appear that a combination of Fraxel and injection with Juvederm would reduce the appearance of your scar. Please consult a board certified dermatologist with a great deal of experience with scars and laser treatments for the best results.
Fillers for Cheek Scars
Just last week Bellafill was approved by the FDA as a filler for scars of the cheek. This is the first FDA approval of any filler on the market for acne scars because it works so well.
There are things you should know about fillers though and I have included a video here for you as well as a link to more information on acne scar treatment with Bellafill.
I hope that helps.
Subcision Works Well For Raising Depressed Scars
Having said all this, I personally would opt for subcision, which is a quick and simple (3-5 minute) procedure that can ultimately result in a permanent scar elevation improvement. For additional and immediate benefit, the Radiesse can also be injected immediately following the subcision or at a later date. It would be advisable to seek consultation and treatment by a board certified aesthetic physician with particular expertise in scar treatment.
