I think it is the only way really to fill in pock marks. Acid peals can help even out skin surface a lot too but it will not solve deep pock marks. It sucks but sometimes the only solution isn't always great. But using juvederm or restylane to fill in like a pock mark or two would not cost nearly as much as you're saying. I have just like one little one that I got from chicken pox when I was little and now that I am getting older and my skin is maturing, it is more noticeable. Like noone had ever noticed it and the other month a friend said "what's that on your face" and this confirmed that I had been thinking it was more noticeable now. I haven't injected it yet, BUT I am hoping that they don't have to over correct so that my pock mark looks like a bump. I am going to a couple of surgeons first to see who seems like they have done this the most.
