• Bellafill Injections for Acne Scars

    Acne breakouts are frustrating, especially when you get them as an adult. But what’s even more frustrating is the scars they leave behind. Even if you’ve finally gotten your acne under control with the help of a dermatologist, you could still be dealing with lasting acne scars. There’s a better option than trying to cover up the scars with thick makeup. Talk to your dermatologist about Bellafill injections. 

    About Bellafill 

    Bellafill has been FDA-approved for the treatment of smile lines for over a decade. Board-certified dermatologists can also use Bellafill to minimize the look of acne scars. In fact, in the U.S., Bellafill is the only long-term dermal filler approved by the FDA to treat distensible acne scars. It’s a gel filler comprised of synthetic microspheres in purified collagen. Bellafill works by plumping up depressed areas of the skin, giving the skin stronger support, and smoothing out the area. Bellafill lasts longer than other dermal fillers because the microspheres are non-resorbable. This means your body cannot metabolize them. 

    Candidates for Bellafill 

    Many people with acne scars are good candidates for Bellafill. However, you should always advise your board-certified dermatologist of your underlying medical conditions and any medications you’re taking. Bellafill is intended for patients 21 years of age and older. Your dermatologist will perform a simple skin test before administering the treatment. 

    Advantages of Bellafill 

    Bellafill is safe, generally well-tolerated, and effective for treating patients with moderate to severe atrophic, distensible acne scars. The treatment takes very little time to complete. You’ll be able to see results right away, and you could continue to enjoy the results for up to a year. Afterward, you may decide to get additional injections. There is no downtime required for the injections. 

    At Swinyer-Woseth Dermatology, there are few things we enjoy more than helping another patient restore his or her self-confidence.

  • Could Bellafill Reverse Your Acne Scarring?

    One of the most frustrating parts of dealing with acne is the scarring it can leave behind long after the breakouts are gone. Fortunately, a new treatment offered by dermatologists can effectively reverse the appearance of scarring and help you achieve smoother skin. Bellafill is effective at treating atrophic, distensible acne scarring on the cheeks and delivers results as soon as the first treatment.

    Bellafill is a dermal filler that works to decrease the appearance of scarring by plumping the skin underneath where scars appear. Adding volume to the skin raises it the same level as the surrounding skin, decreasing the appearance of pits and depressions on the skin surface. Your dermatologist can perform Bellafill injections in the office, and there is no downtime after treatment, allowing you to return to your normal activities right away.

  • Treating Acne Scarring with Bellafill

    One common skin issue dermatologists see in patients is acne scarring. The inflammation caused by acne can promote the loss of collagen in the area. This results in a pitted scar, also known as an atrophic scar. Acne scars detract from one’s appearance and can be challenging to conceal with makeup. Fortunately, there is an FDA-approved solution available: Bellafill.
