Dermal fillers can be an effective way to minimise the appearance of atrophic scars.
Fillers are expertly injected into the base of the scar, pushing it up to make it more flush with the skin. The injections may also help to break up scar tissue and improve the overall texture of the affected area.
The benefits of scar fillers
Dermal fillers can help with atrophic (indented) scars caused by:
Real patients, real results
Scar filler is available at these clinics
What type of fillers are used to fill scars?
Your practitioner will use a hyaluronic acid filler. This is a substance which occurs naturally in the skin, helping it to retain moisture. We have a range of high quality filler brands to choose from and will select the most appropriate for your treatment and skin type.
Can this be used on all types of scars?
Fillers can improve the appearance of most atrophic scars, where the skin has become indented. Unfortunately, fillers will not help with raised, keloid scars, or flat scars. If you’re unsure whether fillers would be suitable for your scar, please arrange a free consultation with one of our experts, who will advise you on the best course of treatment.
Will I still be able to see the scar?
Probably, yes. While fillers will ‘push up’ the base of the scar and make it more flush with the surface of your skin, you will still be able to see where the scar is. However, the treatment can often make a dramatic improvement to the appearance of the scar, so it should become much less noticeable.
Do scar filler injections hurt?
No, we include a local anaesthetic with all our filler injections to minimise discomfort.
How long does the scar filler treatment take?
The treatment itself will take 20 to 30 minutes. But you should allow up to 45 minutes for the appointment as it includes a full consultation prior to treatment.
How long do the results last?
You should continue to benefit from the improvements for six to twelve months. Generally speaking, the more you repeat filler treatments the longer they last.
If you continue your treatment long term, this can help to break up the scar tissue. Combined with the hydrating and collagen-boosting effects of hyaluronic acid, this can permanently improve the appearance of your scar.
So, while we won’t be able to take your scar away, you should find that over time the improved appearance is maintained with less filler and fewer treatments.
