Even though you knew you weren’t alone (some 40-50 million Americans suffer from acne scars!), acne scarring makes you want to be alone. The impact can be devastating at any age. Although no treatment promises skin will become 100% free of scars, the options are improving – Big Time!
- Bellafill has received FDA approval for the treatment of acne scars. It is the ONLY filler on the market approved in the U.S. for the correction of acne scars.
- It is a safe, simple in-office treatment that offers both immediate and lasting results.
How Bellafill Works
Bellafill’s unique collagen stimulating effects lift the scar from beneath by the interaction of permanent micropheres that integrate with your body’s own collagen. Improvement is immediate and continues to improve over time as new collagen surrounds the tiny spheres.
A combination of bovine collagen and microspheres, the collagen component creates an immediate correction so you see improvement right away. As the injected bovine collagen breaks down, your own collagen is produced, so you get improved smoothing over the coming months.
Bellafill is unlike other fillers that degrade over time. Because the microspheres are made of an inert material (polymethylmethacrylate) they remain in the skin permanently, “reminding” the collagen to replenish itself. Although the natural aging process will slow collagen production as you get older, a small touchup of Bellafill years later would be all you would need to maintain the original correction levels.
Reported 90% Patient Satisfaction
Bellafill® treated subjects were asked to rate their satisfaction with the appearance of the acne scars chosen for correction. Satisfaction was defined as a Subject Assessment of Scar Correction (SASC) score of 4(Somewhat Satisfied), 5 (Satisfied) or 6 (Very Satisfied). At 6months, 84% of subjects were satisfied, and by 12 months, 90% of patients were satisfied (unblinded).4
Dr. Mani Ahead of the Pack
Dr. Mani has been using Bellafill (previously branded as Artefill) for acne scars since 2006. She saw what it could do for folds and wrinkles and knew that the people who might need it the most were those who have acne scars that mar their skin and their self-image. Used successfully for what was essentially an “off label” procedure for years, Bellafill for acne scars is now an FDA approved procedure…proving what Dr. Mani knew all along these past 9 years!
