This section of the forum is dedicated to discussions on managing, treating, and correcting acne scarring. (Of note, Dr. Lam is focused principally on acne scarring rather than on managing the ongoing condition of acne, which a dermatologist would be better equipped to address.)
generally speaking it tends to fail. i think it can also be dangerous because fat is a metabolically active product that should be evenly placed across the face. if there is a lot tissue loss to the face, i would use it to help acne scars if it were done in combination with facial rejuvenation. however, as a standalone treatment it is not a good option in my opinion. best, sml
