Do indented scars fill over time? In most cases, acne scars do improve over time without treatment. That’s particularly true of discoloration. Indentations may be more stubborn and less prone to disappearing on their own.
How do you fix indented scars? Soft-tissue fillers are a common treatment specifically for rolling atrophic acne scars. They are used to level or raise the indented scars to match the normal layer of skin. Fillers are injected under the scar and provide almost immediate results.
Do sunken scars fade? Mature scars can also flatten out as they go through this aging process, but it’s important to note that scars will never go away completely. Even with some scar treatments, the appearance will be improved, but they will never totally disappear because the skin composition is different from the surrounding tissues.
Why does my scar look indented? An atrophic scar develops when the skin cannot regenerate tissue correctly. Unlike keloids and hypertrophic scars, atrophic scars are indented in appearance due to healing that occurs below the expected layer of skin.
