A great solution for acne scars is calcium hydroxylapatite dermal filler. This dermal filler has essentially calcium granules that are imbeded in the skin for 12 to 18 months to coverup the depressions in the skin due to acne scarring.
All in all, this is not just a break through but an affirmation for the product that Cosmetic Doctors have been using for many years. The debate has been that although the dermal fillers made of hyaluronic Acid can stimulate collagen growth, calcium hydroxylapatite dermal fillers cannot and hence should not be used.
What Cosmetic Doctors have thought for years, but now the public is being led to believe is that although the collagen production can’t be increased the cosmetic effect of the calcium based dermal filler is far greater. The regions of atrophic acne scarring is extremely deprived of collagen. This means that the hyaluronic acid dermal fillers are not going to provide any benefits in regards to regeneration of collagen.
So essentially it boils down to economics. The calcium based fillers are lasting for more than 8 months in most cases and are showing fantastic results in concealing atrophic acne scarring. On the other hand the so called collagen stimulating dermal filler made of hyaluronic acid is lasting maybe 12 weeks if we are lucky!
As a result it is quiet clear from the eyes of a trained Cosmetic Doctor that the benefits of the calcium based dermal filler far out weigh the benefits of the hyaluronic acid based dermal filler. This only applies to treating atrophic acne scars.
All patients who have acne scarring should consult their Cosmetic Doctor in order to allow them to reach a well founded, scientific based aesthetic treatment for your scars.
