Indent Scars.

Not sure if this is the right forum but I was wonder whats the best way to get rid of indent scars. Like those scars that dont bleed or anything but they INDENT the skin. Would using those debrasion lotions work?

Re: Indent Scars.

The best way to get rid of those scars (indented/atrophic) is to inject a filler at the site. The problem is deciding which filler you want to opt for. The best thing to do is to try some collagen to begin with; see if you like the effect and then decide if you don't mind re-filling every so often, or whether you'd rather permanency. I would stay from synthethic fillers though.

Fillers are not that good cos they are only very temporary - like 1 or 2 years. You need to keep going back and it's expensive.

I would recommend going to Florida and seeing the Dr who does saline injections. Do a search on these boards and you'll find info. It is relatively cheap and relatively effective and very low risk.

There are others but are either VERY expensive or high risk.
