What Are Facial Fillers?
Botox, Juvederm, Restylane and Dysport are injectable substances that fill or plump an area of skin where there is depression due to scarring or wrinkles. This process creates a more even surface, thus reducing or eliminating acne scars. It’s an effective option for:
- Hyperpigmentation: Discoloration due to the overproduction of melanin in certain spots on the skin;
- Rolling Scars: Slight depressions in the skin’s surface; and
- Boxcar Scars: Deep depressions in the skin’s surface.
During the procedure, one of our specially trained doctors will clean the area and apply a topical anesthetic before injecting the filler with a very fine needle. This is an outpatient procedure and typically lasts between 30 minutes and 1 hour.
The results of the procedure can be seen almost immediately and last for several months up to a year. Other benefits include stimulating collagen production and breaking up scar tissue, which can reduce the appearance of wrinkles over time. Repeat treatments may be necessary for severe scars.
