Acne scarring can indeed be a distressing and emotional topic for individuals that suffer from it.

It is a very common skin condition which is not only limited to teenagers. Adult women and men in their 30s, 40s, and even 50s are experiencing breakouts!

These can often leave the person feeling unattractive and unduly self-conscious, effectively inhibiting their behaviour and capacity to express themselves in many ways.

With the amount of surgical and cosmetic treatments currently available, acne scarring is far from a death sentence for the self esteem.

However, whilst there are lots of procedures to choose from which can relieve scarring, they often need numerous sessions to achieve any results.

Fortunately, medical aesthetics offers an effective means of non-surgical acne scar treatment with dermal fillers, which are now being used to obtain quick and long lasting results that make it possible for these individuals to feel attractive and self-confident in their own skin once more.

Dermal Fillers show extremely favourable results in improving the appearance of acne scars and enhancing the texture of the skin by adding structure, volume, and lift to the indented and depressed scars.

Dermal fillers work best on depressed acne or traumatic scars, and are being used to treat a number of different scar types which include – Rolling, Hypertrophic, Ice Pick, Boxcar, and Keloid acne scars.

Due to their capacity to fill and rebuild, medium to high viscosity hyaluronic acid dermal fillers are often used in acne scar revision.

Derma Institute teaches our delegates everything about this procedure in our 1-Day Advanced Dermal Filler and 2-Day Combined Botox and Filler Course.

Our training emphasizes on taking a holistic view of the treatment, to include patient expectations, and ensure safety and optimum results.


While there are lots of beauty creams and lotions in the market for acne scarring, acne scar revision using dermal fillers offers patients a more cost-effective,  non-surgical alternative with little or no downtime and longer lasting results.

In addition, dermal fillers also help in the breakdown of scar tissue, and in stimulating production of collagen.

This helps to over time, reduce the overall appearance of the scars, needing fewer top up treatments as time goes by.

This makes it a preferred option for acne scar treatment as the demand for this procedure remains on the rise and more medical professionals now choosing to add this procedure to their list of treatment services.

Just like all other filler treatments, clients will need to top up after about 9 -12 months, depending on the product, bringing more revenue to the aesthetic practitioner who masters this procedure.
