Scars left from acne can be a great cause of concern to affected patients, especially if they occur on the face.

This can be achieved by either using a targeted approach to treat individual scars with a volumizing filler, or by treating an entire area with a less viscous dermal filler (such as skin boosters, which are used mainly for hydration and skin conditioning).
