Your acne may be long gone, but its scars can stick around for years, or even permanently. For those that wish to remove acne scars and enjoy clearer skin without the bearing the literal scars of adolescence, Bobby Buka MD’s NYC Dermatologists would like to introduce Bellafill® as a potential solution.
Bellafill® is a one-of-a-kind injection that reduces the appearance of acne scars by stimulating growth beneath the surface of your scarring, replacing lost volume caused by aging and smoothing the atrophic appearance of acne scars.
Bellafill® works in two ways. First, it’s composed of small polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) microspheres, which are suspended in a smooth collagen gel. The microspheres each have a diameter of less than a human hair, so they are virtually invisible.
Once injected, these microspheres form a supportive scaffold that your own collagen will build upon. As the gel breaks down, your collagen forms a foundation that adds volume to the acne scars, immediately improving the appearance of your skin for a sustained amount of time. In fact, a stunning 90 percent of patients who used Bellafill® to treat their acne scars reported that they were still satisfied with their results at the 1-year mark.
There is virtually no downtime following a Bellafill® treatment, so you can go about your day right after and even apply makeup directly on your skin.
Bellafill® is the first and only injectable filler that’s FDA approved to treat acne scars. Bellafill® is extremely well-tolerated by patients, and was associated with a very low risk of complications in the largest ever study conducted for cosmetic injectables.
