Special type of materials are used to fill the holes and lower areas created by acne scars. As a result, the skin looks smoother and scars become less visible.
This is a temporary type of solution. How long the fillers will be in intact condition will depend on the type of materials used as fillers.
(d) Punch grafting
In punch grafting technique skin grafts are taken from patient’s own skin with the help of specially designed equipments and after that, the vacant area of skin is filled with skin grafts.
(e) Punch excision
In case of excision technique, acne scars are removed from skin like grafting technique. But, instead of filling the vacant area with skin grafts, they are sutured.
