Blemishes and breakouts can leave the surface of your face texture uneven or scarred. If you have scars that makeup can’t hide, it may be time to consider treatment with the injectable filler Bellafill. Excessive acne scarring can have a heavy impact upon your self-confidence. While some fillers produce temporary improvements, these require regular maintenance treatments. Bellafill offers the benefit of being a more permanent solution for acne scars, with results that last a few years, rather than a just a few weeks or months. Dr. Michael Morrissette is a facial plastic surgeon in Ventura, and can help you achieve a smoother facial texture with Bellafill treatments.
How is Bellafill different?
Bellafill is one of the latest generation of acne treatments, and is quickly gaining in popularity. The treatment is an easy solution to acne scarring that requires fewer treatments to achieve a smoother, greatly improved skin texture and appearance. During trials, an overwhelming majority of patients reported that their results were still evident after five years, a remarkable improvement over other fillers that typically last six to nine weeks.
The FDA-approved formula is made up of two components: a bovine collagen that adds initial volume to smooth out scars, and PMMA (tiny acrylic beads) that promote growth of natural collagen. The growth of collagen helps to produce the long-lasting results and high consumer satisfaction rates of Bellafill treatments.
Is Bellafill Right for Me?
If you struggle with scars from acne breakouts and want to restore a smoother, more attractive skin texture on your facial skin, you may be a good candidate for Bellafill. There are many medications to treat acne and control blemishes, but you may have visible scars from breakouts on your cheeks, forehead, jawline, or other area of your face that are visible after the acne has cleared up. You may feel that people are distracted by your acne scarring, drawing attention away from your most attractive facial features. You may avoid certain hairstyles that expose your scars, or struggle to hide scarring with makeup, which can aggravate the skin further. Bellafill is a semi-permanent solution that uses the body’s natural processes to smooth out imperfections.
Bellafill is approved for treating mild scars, and deeper scars may benefit from other more comprehensive acne scar treatments. For scars that are shallow and disappear when stretched or manipulated with the fingers, the natural collagen growth stimulated by Bellafill functions to fill them in and promote a smoother, more even skin texture.
Bellafill is an injectable filler that can be correctly and carefully administered by Dr. Morrissette to treat your acne scars. The formula is injected directly beneath existing scars, and the collagen gets to work, immediately filling in and smoothing the scarred area. The procedure is relatively fast to perform, and with immediate results. Over the next few weeks, as the collagen is absorbed into your body, the PMMA stimulates the growth of your body’s own collagen to improve texture, suppleness, and appearance. You may need two treatments to achieve the best results, but Dr. Morrissette will work closely with you to determine the level of treatment you will need, based on the extent of your acne scarring.
Aftercare & Recovery
Once the procedure is completed, you will see results immediately. The collagen in the treatment immediately fills in the depressed areas of the skin for a smoothing effect that is visible at once. The procedure itself is relatively painless, so you will likely be able to resume your usual activities the same day. The results are semi-permanent and create long term results by stimulating the body’s natural collagen-producing processes.
Bellafill results look natural and provide a solution to your acne scars that usually lasts many years, unlike other dermal fillers. The vast majority of patients who receive Bellafill injections are extremely satisfied with the results, and appreciate the easy and relatively pain-free procedure, and the long-lasting results. Dr. Morrissette will help you restore smoother, more supple skin, improving the imperfections left behind by acne breakouts.
