Many individuals struggle with acne breakouts during their teen years. For most, this is a relatively quick rite of passage as they adjust their skincare routines and find the right products for their skin. However, some patients can be left with lifelong scars that are not only a painful reminder but can also cause ongoing damage to their confidence. Dr. Tatiana Khrom of Khrom Dermatology & Aesthetics in Brooklyn, NY,understands the angst this can cause her patients and helps address acne scarring with Sculptra treatment.
What is Sculptra?
Sculptra is an injectable filler that is used to plump the skin and stimulates the production of collagen. It can be used to address several cosmetic imperfections, including fine lines and wrinkles, folds around the mouth, or to add fullness to the cheeks or other areas of the face.
Patients who have indented scars from old acne breakouts can benefit from Sculptra to smooth the scars and reduce their appearance.
How does Sculptra work?
Sculptra is a treatment that works gradually and over a period of several treatment sessions. This allows the skin to rest and provides the most precise results. During a treatment session, a small amount of Sculptra is carefully injected into the pit of the acne scar. The injection both begins to plump the skin and sparks the body’s production of collagen in that area. The skin is able to heal for several weeks prior to the next session, which ensures that patients receive just the right amount of treatment.
Will Sculptra work for me?
It’s important to note that not every treatment works for each patient. However, most patients are pleased with their results from Sculptra. Patients who have scars that appear like dips or dimples in the skin tend to have the best results. Those who have scars that have sharp borders can be more challenging to treat.
