Dermal fillers for scars: Do they work?
Dermal Fillers, a popular choice of non-surgical cosmetic treatments, are now being used for scars - but does it work?
The treatments target scars caused by acne, surgery and more, with the goals to get smoother-looking skin and increase self-confidence.
The effects of collagen on scars
During the procedure, dermal fillers containing collagen material are injected into the skin by a dermatologist. The dosage varies depending on the type of scar (or multiple scars) being treated. The collagen filler works by breaking up some of the bands that pull the skin surface downward in the dermis, or the second layer of the skin.
So why use collagen? Dermal fillers contain the protein collagen because of its amazing benefits. Collagen naturally occurs in the skin, performing vital tasks such as helping cells grow. Collagen levels in the skin decrease over time, contributing to scar formation. Dermal filler injections provide a welcome way to increase the amounts of the protein. By using the fillers, skin can look smooth once again.
