Background: Hyaluronic acid filler has been documented in the treatment of atrophic depressed acne scars relatively frequently in the literature but rarely in chronic depressed traumatic atrophic facial scars.
Methods: This case report discusses the use of hyaluronic acid fillers in the correction of a post-traumatic facial atrophic scar on the right cheek.
Results: The right cheek scar was substantially corrected with one session of two different hyaluronic acids injected in a deep and superficial plane.
Conclusion: Relatively accurate, simple and effective correction of this atrophic traumatic scar may suggest that fillers are a suitable alternative to surgery for such scars.

Keywords: scarring, scar correction, filler, hyaluronic acid, facial scar
