FACE is proud to introduce Bellafill®, a unique injectable collagen filler with microspheres that instantly smooths acne scars and facial wrinkles for beautiful, natural-looking correction that lasts. The collagen gel in Bellafill® provides immediate volume and lift using collagen and PMMA microspheres. Bellafill® has been recently approved by the FDA and is one of the most widely used materials in medicine for the last 65 years. According to a recent article, the FDA action was based on a randomized study at 10 U.S. clinical centers in which Bellafill was “found to be an effective, well-tolerated treatment for acne scars compared with the use of a controlled saline injection at 6 months.” Injecting fillers into scars is nothing new, however, Bellafill is groundbreaking in the way it immediately begins to restore lost collagen. After treatment, the restoration continues as PMMA microspheres spread to form a scaffold that the new collagen can develop around.
Benefits of the Bellafill® include:
Pitting scars are usually the result of acne. They are a form of acne scars. They are caused by loss of tissue when cells regenerate from severe acne. While the body is in recovery from acne, new skin cells start to form. However, many individuals do not develop enough skin cells and the pitting scars start to form. Thankfully, there are several treatments to remove pitting scars.
Hypertrophic and Keloid scars are both raised scars that look different from any other scars. While hypertrophic scars get smaller, keloid scars stay the same.
