Bellafill® for Acne Scars
Bellafill® is the only FDA-approved injectable to offer patients both instant and lasting improvement in the appearance of acne scars. Its unique formulation adds volume to distensible scars and supports endogenous collagen production for months after, building satisfying results and provider trust.
Let’s talk about Bellafill®‘s role in your practice. Reach out to us to learn more.
Even after active acne has gone away, its resulting scars can leave patients with lingering self-consciousness for years. Bellafill® was the first, and remains the only FDA-approved injectable filler to specifically treat moderate to severe atrophic, distensible acne scars on the cheeks. These scars are among the most distressing to patients due to their depth and irregularity. Bellafill® uses a combination of polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) microspheres and bovine collagen gel to immediately reduce the look of scars and create a lasting improvement.
62% of patients concerned about noticeable acne scars have consulted a doctor or other healthcare
professional at some time.4
Bellafill® is indicated for scars that meet the 3 S’s:
- Smooth when stretched
- Soft shoulders
Bellafill® isn’t appropriate for scars that are non-distensible, deep, or near the sinus tract.
Mechanism of Action
Bellafill® relies on 2 primary components: 80% bovine collagen and 20% PMMA microspheres. The smooth gel formulation of collagen immediately adds volume to pitted scars, raising them to the level of the surrounding skin. As the collagen is metabolized with time, the PMMA microspheres form a scaffold that helps to support the development of endogenous collagen. This facilitates a sustained improvement through the 12-month mark.
In a study that followed subjects treated with Bellafill® for acne scars, 84% were satisfied with results after 6 months, and 90% were satisfied after 12 months.
Lasting Results, Loyal Patients
Today’s filler patients struggle with the “credit card fatigue” associated with necessary touch-up appointments. Bellafill® offers a solution for patients who don’t want to have to choose between immediate results and long-term satisfaction. Acne scar patients have often tried a series of disappointing remedies and are ready for a long-lasting solution.
Unlike laser- and light-based procedures, Bellafill® provides an immediate lift that’s proven to continue through 12 months. When your Bellafill® patients love their results, they trust you — making them more likely to return for other skincare services.
