I have shallow rolling acne scars on my cheeks and 3 ice-pick scars on the left cheek. The 3 ice-pick scars I have had excised, but the scars still remain and depressed with minimal improvement. I have had 4 series of Artefill injections to all the scars with mininal improvement. The problem is, after the Artefill treatment, my scars look GREAT then 2 weeks later return to their depressed form. Is this normal?
The next question I have, How long would one wait after Aretill treatment, before they can get silicon injections? The last question I have is, Can scar tissue under ice-pick scars hold the scar down and prevent lifting from Artefill or silicon injections.
I fear that the edges of the ice-pick scars are being raised and the scars are appearing deeper. Have you seen this in practice, or at any seminars?
Thank you for your opinion,
