    Acne Scar Fillers

    Hello,

    Need some of your experiences so I can make an educated move here to improve my acne scars.

    Who has used silicone (I've done this), Restylane, or Collagen to fill their acne scars?

    Any success with any of these procedures??

    Thank you!

    I have no experience with fillers. I have heard they are not permanent - they last only about a year and then you have to redo it again.

    For myself, 2 things have filled out the scars I had - Epidermx microdermabrasion and Silkia camellia oil. The scars were about 2mm deep on my forehead and now extremely faint, almost non-visible if I don't look closely in the mirror. I have this result after a year on the products. I have other scars above my upper lip and they are also filled out a lot, but not as much as those on the forehead. I never thought I could rid of my scars without expensive procedures. It took a long time but so worth it at the end.
