Bellafill® Acne Scar Correction
Although your acne may be long gone, its scars can hang around. Bellafill® Acne Scar Correction fades these scars by adding volume to them, bringing them to the level of the surrounding skin. Bellafill® is the first and only injectable filler that’s FDA approved to treat acne scars.
The effects of previous acne can leave multiple types of scars on your face. For this reason Dr. Viggiano may recommend multiple types of treatment for your acne scars.
Bellafill® reduces the look of acne scars in 2 ways. Its remarkably small polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) microspheres are suspended in a smooth collagen gel. The diameter of each microsphere is less than that of a human hair, so they’re not visible to the naked eye.
Once injected by Dr. Viggiano, Bellafill® provides an immediate improvement that you can enjoy as soon as you leave the office. The PMMA microspheres form a supportive scaffold to allow your own collagen to build upon. As the gel breaks down over time, your collagen forms a foundation that adds volume to the acne scars providing a sustained improvement that can last.
Bellafill® is incredibly well-tolerated by patients. In the largest study ever conducted for cosmetic injectables, Bellafill® was associated with a very low risk of complications. 90% of patients who used Bellafill® to treat their acne scars were still satisfied with their results after 1 year.
Unlike hyaluronic acid fillers, which often dissolve within about 9 months, Bellafill® creates a lasting improvement in your skin. It restores rather than just fills for natural-looking, enduring results.
The Patient Experience
Bellafill® for acne is an outpatient procedure. Treatment begins by cleansing your skin and preparing it for treatment. A series of carefully placed injections then add volume to smooth away acne scars. Your treatment is relatively brief, and there is no downtime, so you may return to your normal activities as soon as you leave the treatment session.
