Bellafill® is a revolutionary dermal filler designed to smooth smile lines and nasolabial folds, as well as significantly diminish the appearance of acne scars in the cheeks for patients over the age of 21. Approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the unique composition of this treatment allows for extremely natural-looking results that can last for many years, often far longer than other injectable alternatives. In fact, Bellafill® is the only FDA-approved filler that has proven to be safe and effective for the improvement of lines and wrinkles in the nasolabial region through five years. By employing this innovative injectable treatment, Dr. Louis P. Bucky and our experienced nurse injectors may be able to help you achieve smoother, more youthful-looking skin without the need for frequent “touch-up” visits.
Bellafill® for Acne Scar Reduction
Bellafill® is the first—and currently the only—injectable to receive FDA approval for the treatment of acne scarring. Safe and effective for all skin types, this unique procedure can be an excellent option for women and men seeking to reduce the appearance of rolling and/or box acne scars on the cheeks, temples, and chin. Depending on the type and severity of acne scarring being addressed, patients typically require one full Bellafill® treatment, followed later by a “touch-up” session to ensure an optimal outcome. The majority of individuals notice about a 50-60% reduction in acne scarring approximately six weeks after their initial treatment, and results can continue to improve for up to a year.
Bellafill® is by far the most direct treatment for acne scars available today, and when combined with skin care techniques such as peels and/or micro-needling, patients have been able to diminish up to 85-90% of acne scarring on their face with exceptional, long-lasting results.
The Bellafill® Treatment
Bellafill® is carefully administered using an ultra-fine needle, and a local anesthetic contained in the filler solution can help to minimize any potential discomfort during treatment. Once injected into the targeted acne scar(s) or nasolabial line(s), the distinctive Bellafill® solution works to create permanent structures around which the body can form new collagen. This effectively provides an immediate improvement on the surface of the skin as well as the support necessary for long-term results in the treatment area. Depending on the specific concern being addressed, desired outcomes can often be achieved in as little as one treatment, though some acne scarring may require a quick additional treatment session to optimize results. Once desired results are attained, regular “touch-up” procedures are generally not necessary for many years.
Recovery and Results
Following the Bellafill® treatment, the majority of patients are able to resume normal daily activities and routines as soon as they leave the office. Some degree of temporary bruising, swelling, and/or redness in the targeted area(s) is normal, but these symptoms should dissipate shortly and can generally be concealed by makeup. Results from Bellafill® are often immediately apparent and have been known to last for at least five years, if not longer.
