It goes without saying that scarring is something that we’d all rather live without if we could. Most of us suffer with some form of scarring or another, whether on the body or the face, as a result of certain skin conditions or physical trauma. They are a part of the natural healing process within our bodies, leaving a mark on the skin as it heals.
There are numerous types of scarring, from normal fine-line scars to keloid scars and pitted, sunken scars. Not only does scarring tend to look rather unsightly, but it can often be tied with rather unsettling emotions and memories, depending on the source of the scar. A scar can serve as a constant reminder of something we’d rather prefer to forget, which can take its toll on your mental wellbeing. In some cases, a scar can fade over time, while over-the-counter products rarely have the desired effect.
For scars that are depressed and sunken, dermal fillers offer a solution that you might not have thought to try. You may know that they are commonly used as an anti-ageing, skin rejuvenation treatment, restoring volume and shape, which is why they offer benefits for pitted scars.
