Dr. Jochen has years of experience injecting silicone to lift up acne scars. The FDA approved medical grade silicone is used to perform this procedure. Silicone was approved for this purpose in 2007.
The technique that Dr. Jochen uses is the micro dropule technique. Microscopic droplets of silicone are injected into the acne scar to lift and smooth the scar. After the acne scar can be treated with lasers to eliminate pigment and make it blend naturally into the surrounding skin.
