Can I Get Dermal Fillers With Active Acne?

QUESTION: DOES MY ACNE HAVE TO BE CLEARED UP BEFORE DERMAL FILLERS?

Yes, depending on the area. Once your acne is under control and not active or inflamed in the treatment zone, we can treat it!

You’re probably wondering what acne is and what steps you can take to clear it up before treating any resulting acne scars. Acne is a condition that affects the skin’s oil glands. The small holes in your skin’s pores connect to oil glands under the skin. These glands make an oily substance called sebum. The pores connect to the glands by a canal called a follicle. Inside the follicles, oil carries dead skin cells to the surface of the skin. Thin hair also grows through the follicle and out to the skin. When the follicle of a skin gland clogs up, a pimple grows.

IT’S A MATTER OF GENES

Contrary to popular belief, acne isn’t caused by an unhealthy diet or poor hygiene. The simple truth is that genes and hormones are behind most forms of acne. Swearing off potato chips or scrubbing your face 20 times a day won’t change your predisposition to this skin problem. Since hormonal imbalances cause some forms of acne, certain types of birth control can help to balance out hormones, clearing up skin.

So, what can you do to clear up existing acne? You should talk to a medical provider about different treatment options, including birth control, prescription medications, and topical creams, to find the one that’s right for you.
