Treatment with Juvederm
Acne Scars and Treatment
Acne scars require a combination of lasers such as Fraxel and eMatrix, and injections with Restylane or Sculptra. I wouldn't expect your acne scars to be corrected completely with one syringe of product. I can't tell from the photos how many syringes would be required to correct your nasolabial area. I would definitely consult a board certified dermatologist with experience with these procedures to get a realistic assessment of the results and cost.

As for your acne scarring, there are multiple procedures to correct that type of scarring, but what is done depends on the type of scarring you have. I can't really tell that from your pictures.This can only be done on a person to person basis with your doctor. CO2 laser resurfacing, in the right hands, can do a fabulous job for the majority of types of acne scarring. However, the results are only as good as the experience of the doctor doing the procedure. You are in luck, because one such person is Neil P. J. Walker FRCP in Manchester. Neil was trained in surgical dermatology at the Cleveland Clinic. He was a Fellow for both Philip Bailin and me in the mid 1980's where we did a significant amount of clinical research, and developed many laser procedures still being performed today. I don't know if he's still active with laser surgery but, if he is, he has the experience. If not, I'm sure he can refer you to someone who does. You may also want to check with him on your filler problem. jlr
