I have a few small facial scars that probably aren’t that noticeable to others but they really do bother me. Can fillers make these look better?
Fillers can sometimes be used to fill small facial scars. There are temporary fillers such as Restylane, which is a hyaluronic acid, or permanent fillers such as medical grade silicone that can be used. Filler can be injected under the skin to fill a depression and improve the appearance. Laser resurfacing procedures may also be an option to improve your facial scars. The size, depth, age and color of your scars are important factors in determining which treatment would be best for you. Depending on your scars, injectable fillers may be an option for you. To give you a definitive recommendation I would need to see you in one of our Washington, DC area practices located in Chevy Chase, MD and Northern Virginia.
