When your scar is at a lower level on the skin than the rest of the surrounding skin, it is called a depressed scar. For depressed scars, we typically use dermal filler injections.
Dermal filler injections have the ability to elevate depressed scars. Patients come in for injections of soft-tissue filler products like Restylane, Cosmoderm, and Juvederm, which effectively add volume to the tissues of the region. It is important to note that these products only last in the skin temporarily, and additional treatment options may be recommended.
