Bellafill (Artefill) for Acne Scars Q & A

Bellafill (Artefill) For Acne Scars
Over 40 million Americans suffer from acne scars. Acne scarring makes you want to be alone. The impact can be devastating at any age. Although no treatment promises skin will become 100% free of scars, the options are improving – significantly. Bellafill has received FDA approval for the Treatment of Acne Scars. It is the ONLY filler on the market approved in the U.S. for the correction of acne scars. It is a safe, simple in-office treatment that offers both immediate and lasting results.
How It Works
Bellafill’s unique collagen stimulating effects lift the scar from beneath by the interaction of permanent micropheres that integrate with your body’s own collagen. Improvement is immediate and continues to improve over time as new collagen surrounds the tiny spheres.
A combination of bovine collagen and microspheres, the collagen component creates an immediate correction so you see improvement right away. As the injected bovine collagen breaks down, your own collagen is produced, so you get improved smoothing over the coming months.
Bellafill is unlike other fillers that degrade over time. Because the microspheres are made of an inert material (polymethylmethacrylate)they remain in the skin permanently, reminding the collagen to replenish itself. Although the natural aging process will slow collagen production as you get older, a small touch-up of Bellafill years later would be all you need to maintain the original correction levels.
