    Acne scarring is a common and persistent sequela affecting many individuals worldwide, with significant physical and long-lasting psychological effects. Currently, the treatment options available for acne scars are mostly invasive and have several side effects. This paper explores the possibility of using polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) collagen microspheres, a relatively underexplored technique hitherto, to treat common atrophic scars. PMMA-collagen is more popularly used in injectable wrinkle fillers. Preliminary research has shown that PMMA-collagen has a beneficial effect on atrophic scars while having the added advantage of being safe, tolerable and minimally invasive as well.
