Are temporary fillers worth the investment?

Recommended Posts

:think: From what I've heard, there are both positive and negative reviews of temp fillers like Restylane. I would be interested in these sort of fillers if they lead to long-term reduction in scars. From what I hear, the collagen can repair, heal, and the scar fill in as the filler is gradually absorbed by the body. Is this true? Does anyone have any personal experiences they'd be interested in sharing, both positive and negative?

Thank you!

It's called "temporary" for a reason :D . If you feel a the 3 months of minimal scarring is worth the investment, get yourself the injection. The only thing that detracts me from this is that its temporary, and I wouldn't want to continue paying quarterly.

I would probably perform self-injections, at least after the first time. And yes, temporary but would that give the skin enough time to build collagen and heal the scar?

Your skin might release some collagen when you puncture your skin with the needle, however I believe that as far as our skins are concerned, it'll see the scar as a healed wound unfortunately and leave it alone.
