Your Solution to Acne Scars
Acne scars can be very difficult for most people to deal with, it can be embarrassing and can lower our self-esteem. While we have found a solution for our acne, we are left with a reminder of what used to be, that is until Juvaderm was created. Juvederm is a dermal filler that is highly effective in reducing the appearance of acne scars and its long-lasting ability has made it increasingly popular.
Juvederm and Acne Scars
Severe acne may lead to atrophic scarring, which is scarring that forms an indentation in the skin, due to the inability of the tissue in the skin to regenerate. Types of atrophic scars include ice pick, boxcar, and rolling scars. Juvaderm has the ability to treat these types of atrophic scarring with very long-lasting, positive results.
How Does Juvederm Work?
Juvederm works by restoring volume into the indented scar to help lift the skin and create a smooth surface. Juvaderm is able to do this because it consists of hyaluronic acid which not only boosts collagen production in the skin but also has amazing properties that allow it to attract water and therefore it can maintain its volume for long periods of time. This allows Juvederm treatments to last anywhere from 9-12 months.
Treatment with Juvederm is a relatively simple process. An anesthetic may be applied to the area in order to numb it so the patient will not experience any discomfort. The area that will be treated is cleaned and disinfected and the filler is then placed directly underneath each indented area that the patient would like to correct, this process may take up to half an hour. Once completed the patient may return to their day to day activities and return once again in 9-12 months for another treatment.
