Get in touch to learn more and schedule your appointment.

What Causes Superficial Scars?

Superficial scars occur after acne flare-ups. After a breakout, our body produces collagen to address the affected area. The problem is that when a lot of collagen clumps into one area uncontrolled, it leads to uneven, rough patches of skin. Some scars may rise above your skin, and some may be recessed. Regardless, a dermal filler solution may be an effective treatment choice.

What Are the Treatment Options?

Dermal fillers include hyaluronic acid, which is a natural substance produced by the body. When injected under the skin, this substance improves skin plumpness and restores volume. As volume is improved, the appearance of superficial scars is minimized, giving you a more even texture.

What to Expect?

Dermal filler sessions can last anywhere from 15-60 minutes. This can range based on your specific degree of scarring. A lot of these injectables contain lidocaine, which is a numbing agent. This substance reduces discomfort and makes the process more tolerable. After the injections, you can see a noticeable reduction in the appearance of superficial scars.
