Bellafill has been approved by the FDA as a safe and effective treatment for acne scars as a dermal filler that produces younger-looking skin by promoting the growth of your body’s own collagen. It treats acne scars by creating firmer, smoother skin, thus diminishing the appearance of scars and producing an overall clearer complexion.
How Does Bellafill Work?
Bellaﬁll replaces lost volume in the skin below the wrinkle for correction that is immediate and lasting. The injectable gel is comprised of 80% puriﬁed collagen and 20% PMMA (polymethylmethacrylate) microspheres. The tiny microspheres are half the diameter of a human hair, so small that they are virtually invisible to the eye. It restores rather than just ﬁlls for natural enduring results. In clinical studies, efﬁcacy was observed out to 12 months. (Primary efﬁcacy endpoint was at 6 months.)
Is Bellafill Right For Me?
Most patients can expect to maintain the correction they see early after treatment. However, every patient’s skin is unique and therefore we recommend starting slowly with a conservative amount and continuing treatment as needed to get the best correction, correction that lasts.
Like other fillers, such as Juvederm, Bellafill is administered by way of injection. You may need more than one treatment to attain lasting results.
