Can Bellafill® Treatment Improve the Appearance of Acne Scars?
Are you tired of feeling self-conscious about your acne scars? If so, you have options to smooth away their appearance. Bellafill® treatment can improve the appearance of certain types of acne scars. A cosmetic injectable, Bellafill® is an FDA-approved dermal filler that contains naturally derived collagen and PMMA microspheres, providing immediate skin volume and stimulating collagen production for long-term results.
Do you have acne scars and want to learn more about reducing their appearance? If so, schedule a consultation with board-certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Vu Ho to determine what treatment option is best to help meet your needs. Dr. Ho or a member of our team at Beyond Beautiful in Plano, TX will discuss Bellafill® with you and answer any questions you might have. We treat patients near McKinney, Frisco, and North Dallas.
Bellafill® to treat acne scars
Bellafill® can be used to treat several types of acne scars, such as rolling scars, boxcar scars, and some atrophic scars.
- Rolling scars are shallow with sloping perimeter sides
- Boxcar scars are more defined with steep, sharp edges
- Atrophic scars are depressions in the skin and can be caused by loss of tissue or damage to the collagen and elastin fibers
At Beyond Beautiful, we will carry out Bellafill® injections at our office in Plano, TX. The injections can take anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour, depending on the size and number of scars being treated. Results are typically visible almost immediately after treatment and can last for up to five years.
Is Bellafill® right for me?
It's important to note that Bellafill® may not be suitable for all acne scar patients, and a consultation with Dr. Ho or a member of our team is necessary to determine if the treatment is right for you. Like all medical treatments, there are potential side effects, such as swelling at the injection site, redness, bruising, and itching. The side effects can last for a few hours up to a week following the injections.
Following cosmetic injections, you can return to work and daily activities with no downtime. However, you should avoid excessive or strenuous exercise for the first 24 hours.
If you want immediate results, Bellafill® might be the right choice for you. Patients notice rapid improvement in their acne scars that can last for up to five years before they need a touch-up treatment to maintain their smooth skin.
What to expect from Bellafill® injections
If you think Bellafill® injections are the right treatment choice for your acne scars, then our team at Beyond Beautiful in Plano, TX will ready your skin by cleansing it and marking the injection site locations.
On occasion, a local anesthetic is used if patients are concerned about any discomfort, but it is usually not needed. We will carefully inject the cosmetic injectable using a fine needle in targeted areas of your face. A cold compress is used to reduce swelling and halt any bleeding following the injections.
