Acne often does not end with their disappearance. Once they are gone, in their place you might have scars, because your skin is currently undergoing a healing process and is working overtime to produce collagen.
These scars unfortunately won’t just go away, so a proper treatment is necessary.
Making sure acne doesn’t form on your skin is the best way to reduce the chances of scars appearing. However, if this still happens you shouldn’t give up as there is another option – dermal fillers.
Here’s What You Should Know About Dermal Fillers
How your skin looks is mostly dependent on a protein called collagen. Unfortunately, there are a whole bunch of things that can destroy collagen or disrupt its production, including acne scars.
Once injected into the scarred tissue on the face, Dermal Fillers soften that part of the skin and blends it with the rest of your skin. Before you know it, all the skin on your face looks smoother and healthier.
What Can You Expect from a Treatment
Normally, a skilled dermatologist can perform a dermal filler treatment in about 45 minutes. She/He will first have to numb your skin with anesthetics, which takes about 15 to 20 minutes. Once your skin is ready, the filling process will last for around 15 minutes. Finally, if there is any discomfort, a topical cream will be used to alleviate it.
For the first few days, you might experience a bit of swelling and bruising and your skin may also be a bit tender. Most patients’ swelling and tenderness goes away within a day or two.
Finally, you are probably curious as to how long will the effects last. Well, depending on the dermal filler used, you will notice a significant improvement on your skin for up to a year.
