Everyone has different needs and goals when treating acne scarring. We strive to provide the best acne scar treatments, while offering treatments that fit into every patient’s schedule. Sometimes, such as one week before a big event, it is not so important that an acne scar treatment is permanent as it is that the acne scar treatment will get rid of acne scars by next week.
NYC dermatologist and founder of the Clear Clinic, Dr. Schweiger, explains that, “While Fractional CO2 laser resurfacing and Fraxel laser resurfacing have proven themselves to be the most effective and most permanent options for treating acne scars, it is important to know that there are options available for immediately improvement of acne scars. Hyaluronic acid fillers, such as Restylane and Juvederm, can be injected directly into the acne scars. While the result is not always as dramatic as laser resurfacing treatments, dermal fillers provide a nice improvement and the results are visible immediately.”
Dermal fillers for acne scars can be injected in the office, with little downtime, other than potential bruising. Depending on the filler used to treat acne scars, the improvement usually lasts up to nine months after a single treatment.
