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 discolored and can 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 last for up to 60 months. We usually perform subcision for acne scars. This is a process where 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 the production of your own natural collagen, 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 it helps to keep Bellafill in place so that 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. The polydimethylsiloxane helps to keep the collagen in place

The benefits of using Bellafill to treat acne scars include:

  • Bellafill is a long-lasting dermal filler that can smooth out acne scars within days and last for up to 12 months.
  • Bellafill contains 80% collagen and 20% polydimethylsiloxane, which helps to promote the production of your own natural collagen.

The injection procedure

We always perform subcision before injection of Bellafill, to release the scars. The subcision is a process 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 some discomfort during the injection process, but we can minimize it by 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.
