What are acne scars, and what can be done to treat them
Acne scars are the result of inflammation caused by acne. The scars can be pitted or discoloured and cause a lot of self-consciousness. Thankfully, there are treatments available that can help.
Bellafill is a long-lasting dermal filler that can smooth out acne scars within days and lasts up to 60 months. We usually perform subcision for acne scars. We insert a needle under the skin to break up the Scar tissue, then replace it with Bellafill.
How Bellafill works
Bellafill has bovine collagen inside special microspheres. The collagen helps to promote your natural collagen production, which in turn fills in scars. Polydimethylsiloxane is a substance that has been used in medical implants for over 30 years. It’s safe and effective and helps to keep Bellafill in place so it can do its job.
When you get Bellafill injections, collagen and polydimethylsiloxane settle in the dermal layer of the skin. The collagen promotes the production of new collagen, which helps to fill in scars. Polydimethylsiloxane helps to keep the collagen in place.

The injection procedure
We always perform subcision before injection of Bellafill to release the scars. The subcision is where we insert a needle under the skin to break up the Scar tissue, then replace it with Bellafill.
After the subcision, We will start to inject Bellafill into your skin. You may feel discomfort during injection, but we can minimize it using a topical numbing cream.
The injection process takes about 15-20 minutes. Afterward, you may experience some redness, swelling, and bruising. These side effects are temporary and should resolve within a few days.
Bellafill works best on rolling or boxcar scars. You will usually see results within a few days after treatment. The results from Bellafill can last for up to 12 months.
To maintain your results, you will need touch-up treatments every year. These touch-ups can help to prolong the results of your treatment.
