Sometimes facial scars can leave a hollowness in your skin.
This can happen after severe acne which can sometimes leave deep hollow acne scars, or if you have had a piece of skin removed for a biopsy, or facial scarring through an accident.
The dermal fillers that I use are a gel-like substance made out of synthetic hyaluronic acid, which is very similar to the composition of your body’s own natural hyaluronic acid, which hydrates and plumps out your skin.
The dermal filler is injected under the scar and plumping out the skin can significantly improve the appearance.
The photos below (with thanks to the client for his kind permission to publish these) show an un-retouched recent example of the treatment of a facial scar with dermal filler.
This scar was the result of a skin biopsy to remove a small potentially cancerous area.
The effect of the dermal filler treatment is immediate and lasts 6 to 9 months. It then needs to be repeated.
