Having visible Acne scars on the face can cause self-consciousness for men and women, and covering these skin imperfections with makeup can cause further breakouts on the skin. At Ultimate Solutions Med Spa, we offer minimally-invasive Bellafill® treatments to help smooth and restore natural beauty to the skin without causing any further irritation or damage.
What Causes Acne Scarring?
Depending on the severity of your Acne, tiny, pitted scars can develop on your cheeks. Rather than covering up your scars or feeling embarrassed about their presence, treat them safely and effectively at the source with Bellafill®.
There are typically three classes of Acne scars:
- Ice pick: Deep holes beneath the surface of the skin that make it appear as though it has been punctured with a sharp object
- Rolling: These are caused by bands of scar tissue underneath the skin, giving it an uneven and rolling appearance.
- Boxcar: Characterized by round or oval depressions that resemble craters in the skin
Bellafill® is ideal for the treatment of boxcar scarring and is the only injectable collagen filler that is indicated for acne scars as well as reducing visible signs of aging.
How Does Bellafill® Work?
Formulated with calcium microspheres in a gel carrier, Bellafill® is injected with a fine needle, where it begins providing an immediate lifting effect to the skin. This filler also provides a supportive matrix around treated areas, stimulating your body’s own production of collagen to continue improving the skin over time even after the gel is absorbed.
Are There Any Side Effects?
As with any injectable treatment, slight swelling, bruising and redness can develop at injection sites, but this should subside within a day after treatment. Bellafill® is comprised of calcium, which is easily recognized and processed by the body and typically results in no adverse reactions.
Am I a Good Candidate for Bellafill®?
During your consultation with Dr. Jose and our medical team, factors such as your overall health, medical history, treatment expectations and individual condition will be assessed to help you decide if Bellafill® is the best course of treatment to reduce the visibility of your Acne scarring. As some types of scarring cannot be effectively treated with this filler, it is important to have an assessment prior to treatment.
