A patient asked 4 months ago
I went back to my surgeon who really saved my face with subsicion a decade ago. He touched my skin and said it’s hard. I had a lower facelift and I thought I was going to be able to improve my acne scarring. He said there is not enough indent to do it. Can a doctor tell me which other way I can improve my scars without using artificial fillers? The only fillers I have had have been fat transfer and subsicion

Treatment options for acne scarring

 
Hi and thank you for your question! Based on the pictures while you can achieve some improvements by a series of fractional CO2 laser treatments, some spot treatments with fillers are still recommended. If you are averse to artificial fillers, we can use hyaluronic acid-based fillers as well and as you know, hyaluronic acid is a natural component of skin so it’s might be an option for you to consider. I hope it helps and good luck!
