Introducing Bellafill for treating acne scars! Approximately 50 million people in this country suffer from acne scarring, but until now, we have not had a good treatment that works for all skin types and skin colors. Bellafill, which previously had an indication for treating nasolabial folds, has now received FDA approval for the treatment of acne scars. It is the ONLY filler on the market approved for the correction of acne scars. It is a safe, simple, treatment we do in the office that offers both immediate and long lasting results. It is also the only filler available that has been proven to last five years.
Bellafill is injected under the scars and it lifts from below to stimulate your own collagen to fill the scar. The unique injectable gel, comprised of suspended tiny microspheres that integrate and promote new tissue, and collagen building. You see improvement right away, but the skin just keeps getting smoother as your own body's collagen fills the scars.
Patients treated with Bellafill were asked to rate their satisfaction with the appearance of the acne scars chosen for correction. At six months, 84% of subjects were satisfied and by 12 months, 90% of patients were satisfied with their improvement. There is usually some bruising during the procedure, but pain is minimal as there is a local anesthetic in the Bellafill gel.
Bellafill is a smooth, collagen-based filler with poly-methylmethacrylate (PMMA). PMMA is permanent, but completely safe, and has been used in medical implants for 65 years. The PMMA recreates the firm structure of smoother looking skin by supporting production of your body’s own collagen.
Generally your entire treatment will consist of at least two, and probably three sessions, as Bellafill is injected in layers about six weeks apart. There are also several types of acne scars and depending on which type you have, you may need to be treated first with the Micropen before advancing to your Bellafill treatment. This can be determined at your consult.
Bellafill is also used for cosmetic enhancement and restores lost volume in the nasolabial folds, cheeks and mid-face. It stimulates your own collagen and is the only filler that has been proven to last five year.
