Fillers for acne scars

Posted by

Hi all.

I've been experiencing cystic skin inflammation since my sec sch years. After oral drugs, most is gone....except for the scars. My blemishes are extensive, and I am extremely shy about it.

I have been to a couple of specialists and they said they can't assist me with my scars since it's too deep. I read about smoothening scars with fillers. Has anybody attempted? How lasting are your outcomes?

Hi Meggie K, I had really bad acne in my teens too which is not stable (thank god!). The scars also troubled me a lot, they are mostly on my cheeks which is very obvious... My aesthetic doctor calls them ice-pick scars or something like that. So far I've done 12 sessions of fractional co2 laser and it has improved greatly. Altho the scars are still visible they are sooo much less deep so I would suggest you to enquire about this. Its quite a standard approach for scars and many doctors offer.


Recently my doc recommend me to try Rejuran healer to improve the texture further. Did one session and its painful but amazingly I saw improvement. Was crying during the session but crazy enough I went back for more. I guess no pain no gain right. Apparently, co2 laser + rejuran healer is a pretty standard treatment for acne scars nowadays. Hope this helps you too babe.

Thanks miomao!!!

An update from my post -  I recently went to another aesthetic clinic and FINALLY someone said that my face can be saved. He did recommend laser and this filler thing called Rejuran as you mentioned miomao. Rejuran damn ex though... he quoted me 700 for it leh. and he recommended that I use it in conjunction with the lasers. So each treatment will be almost 2k!!!! plus I need about 5 treatments....

how much did you pay for yours/ how many sessions did you need?

hi, newbie here. 

would like to seek some advise on the following: 

suffered bad acne scarring for more than 15 yrs, tried numerous treatments such as Er Yag, fractional laser, subcision, AHA, derma and watever you named it, i done it before.. 

had no other alternative than to look into plastic surgery options. 

was told by a doctor that a process call z-plasty could help in my case. 

the fee done in SG is around 5k, downtime is about a week. 

Money wise, i already spend tons of money on the initial, what hurts the most was the tarnished of hopes.. 

I'm not a higher earner, just an average income. 

This doc told me that it would be cheaper if i were to go to his clinic in manila, around half of 5k. 

thus here i am, seeking some advises if anyone has a similar case like mine. 

as i search most of the plastic surgery was into nose, chin or lipo job. 

none is like facial restructure. 


please enlighten

Just read your posting - I understand your frustration - I thought subcision is fine for such. What did this manila doc recommend then? 

You have tried dermabrasion?

Have you found out if these make your skin more sensitive? Seems that certain scars can be filled out by fillers or micro droplet silicone injections. For the micro droplet injections, they must be done by a surgeon trained in the skill and he injects the micro droplets of medical silicone around the scar causing collagen to grow. 

For fillers, they are better for the flatter scars.
