Bellafill: Fill in Acne Scars
Help With Acne Scars
Acne scars are one of the most difficult skin conditions to treat. They are also one of the very top concerns of people who have them. Acne scars are the result of inflammation to your skin. If too much collagen was created in the inflammed area, you are left with a long lasting scar.
Fortunately for those who suffer from scarring, a new FDA indication has approved Bellafill to fill in old scars. Using fillers to fill in scars isn’t new. What is new is using Bellafill for this purpose. Bellafill has two major benefits in the treatment of acne scars over other fillers. Firstly, it lasts a long time – sometimes 5 years or more, meaning you won’t have to re-treat the area for a very long time. Secondly, Bellafill works by stimulating your own collagen to grow in the treated area. It may seem anti-thetical that you want to grow new collagen to treat an area created by too much inflammation and collagen, but this new collagen not only fills in the acne scar, but improves your overall skin quality.
Bellafill won’t work to fill all types of scars. It works best of wide scars, not narrow, deep ones. Additionally, post-fill, the appearance of acne scars can be greatly improved by treatments like microneedling or intensive chemical peels, like the ViPeel.
We are very excited to bring this life-changing treatment to our suite of services.
