Acne Scar Technique

Treating acne scars with dermafiller is a specialized technique and can be challenge for a starting injector. Health professionals must consider that treating scar tissue if difficult because the tissue is less responsive. Typically a thicker needle is used but the risk is that there is more bleeding and the increase risk of over filling. Furthermore, injectors will not be able to treat ice pick scars. The only acne scars that can be treated will be rolling scars. Furthermore, this treatment may not be right for everyone as correction will always be sub par due to the nature of the tissue. This should be communicated to the patient.
