Skip the wait, the downtime and the pain of laser. Bellafill filler is FDA approved for improving acne scars. You will see changes immediately upon treatment that last much longer than other fillers since Bellafill contains nondegradable microspheres.
For decades, dermatologists around the world have sought a reliable and tolerable solution to acne scars. We see how our patients suffer – and it is truly suffering to have to wake up each day to skin that is marred from scars. Lasers have provided a fairly effective way to help smooth scars, but the process is admittedly slow and to get the best results, patients have to be willing to endure discomfort and downtime to get to “there” from “here”.
Fillers have always been an option and many acne scar patients have made use of them, but for decades the only available fillers have been temporary – with the scars reappearing as the filler breaks down and disappears.
Bellafill is different. The filler is comprised of 2 components: bovine collagen, which instantly helps fill (but does breakdown), and tiny PMMA beads that do NOT break down. These microscopic beads create a response of collagen networking that continues to slowly replace and bind collagen over years – not months! With Bellafill proving its 5-year effectiveness*, it’s easy to see why it’s a very viable option for filling acne scars when other treatments are not desired or not effective.
One of Bellafill’s big attractions is that it can treat scars that are deep and severe as well as more moderate scarring. As you can see from the Acne Scar Rating Scale, even what might have been seen as hopeless scarring now has an avenue to measurable improvement.
Every scar sufferer has different scar types and scar depths. Simpler laser can be very effective on shallow scars, but deeper scars will benefit the most from combination treatment and filler to get the best outcomes.
