Many people who suffer from acne go on to develop devastating facial scarring. Unfortunately, acne plagues many men and women of all ages well after adolescence. Hormones, bacteria, and of course, stress, can blemish otherwise healthy skin. Luckily, our painless and non-invasive treatments clear up acne with no downtime.
Acne scars are stubborn, and no single treatment is best for everyone.
Various methods can be utilized to help improve your complexion. At Beautify Cosmetic & Surgical Clinic, we combine state-of-art technologies and procedures, including laser resurfacing, PRP Microneedling, and Bellafill – which is the only long-term filler approved by the FDA to treat acne scars. It is a collagen-stimulating filler that literally fills the pitted scar. Bellafill contains a substance called PMMA, which stimulates your own fibroblasts to make new collagen at the injection site. This means that ultimately, your own collagen becomes the filler. In the case of acne scars, this treatment can lead to long lasting correction, as long as no active acne is present to create new scars.
Once a scar is treated with Bellafill, your results can last many years. Treatment will improve when you also address redness and surface scar tissue with a treatment like microneedling or our physician-grade skin peels.
This is the most exciting development in the area of acne scar treatment in many years. If you would like to find out if you are a candidate for Bellafill, please call us to schedule a free, no-obligation physician consultation.
