    Injectable fillers work best on shallow, saucer-shaped acne scars. The market has seen an increase in the number and ever-improving quality of filler substances used to help "plump up" acne scars. They have immediate results and last anywhere from three to 12 months depending upon the filler used.

    Fat transplantation utilizes a patient's own fat removed by a small liposuction cannula, prepared and reinjected into the dermal defect. While none of these methods are permanent, results tend to last between three and six months.
