Bumps and bruises and scars are a part of life. Most of us know this, and are okay with it…Except when it comes to scars, particularly facial scars. Because for some of us, the scars that mar our face,  can also mar our self esteem and the way we think about ourselves.

For most teens and adults with facial scarring, acne is the culprit. According the American Association of Dermatology, Acne is the most common skin disorder in the U.S., with nearly 85% of the population being affected at some point in their lives. Scarring is common for people suffering from acne, especially for those individuals suffering from severe acne, such as acne vulgaris, which leaves scars on 95% of its victims.

Soft Tissue Fillers, also known as Dermal Fillers, are another successful procedure men and women undergo to diminish the appearance of acne scars. The Soft Tissue Filler procedure looks very similar to Botox. Both are injectables, that are relatively painless, non-invasive, quick and convenient,  require no down time, and best of all, are very effective with immediate results.

Unlike Botox, that uses a neurotoxin to relax tense facial muscles to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, soft tissue fillers, much like their name suggests, fill in depressions, replacing lost volume. This is why soft tissue fillers are especially effective for treating depressed acne scars. Depressed acne scars produce pox like marks.  When treating acne with soft tissue fillers, the scar’s depression is injected with the filler, adding volume to the scar, causing it to plump up, fill out, and practically disappear.

Chemical Peels are used to fade the appearance of acne scars and other skin damage. A Chemical peel does this by gently striping the outermost layer of dead skin cells that accumulate on the surface.  By striping away the top layer of dead cells, acne scars remaining on the underlying layer of skin appear smoother and less noticeable.
