Nearly everyone has experienced acne at some point in their lives. While this condition often is most prominent in the teen years, pimples can develop in men and women well into adulthood. Once the blemishes have healed, however, acne scars may be left behind. These bothersome marks can make your skin look and feel bumpy and uneven, and they may even affect your self-esteem. Fortunately, our skilled physician, Dr. Shehla Ebrahim, offers a non-surgical treatment option. Dermal fillers can be used to plump the indentations left by acne scars. There are many different formulations available, including JUVÉDERM®, Restylane® and Radiesse®. The right injectable for your needs will vary based on the type (or types) of scars you have.
Depending on the dermal filler used, you may see virtually instant improvement in the appearance of your acne scars. This technique is designed to be quick, although the number of scars addressed will affect the treatment time. It’s important to note that dermal fillers are temporary, and you may wish to return for maintenance sessions to extend the outcome. In addition to dermal fillers, we also offer laser skin resurfacing technology that may provide longer-lasting results.
We understand that acne scars can be just as unpleasant as acne, and we’re here to help. We offer numerous minimally invasive options to help you achieve the smooth, youthful, and beautiful skin you desire.
