Acne is the single most prominent skincare problem that people face. Starting at the age of puberty, many people then experience acne for the rest of their lives. And although often acne causes minor lesions that go away after a week or so, acne can also cause life-long facial scarring.
Living with acne – is there a solution?
Acne scars can be a huge blow to someone’s confidence. Typically, people have to choose between living with the scarring (and perhaps trying to cover it up with makeup) or having invasive surgery done. However, there is another option.
Bellafil is the only FDA-approved treatment for acne scars. It’s a filler, injected under the skin with a very fine needle, that sits below the lowest point of the scar. Immediately, Bellafil plumps the area where the acne scar is, causing it to disappear.
How does it work?
There are two ingredients in Bellafil that make it stand out from similar fillers on the market. Firstly, it contains a chemical called polymethylmethacrylate, or PMMA. Don’t be afraid of the long name! PMMA is a fully biocompatible material that has been safely used in implants for years. PMMA is the primary ingredient that works to fill in depressed scars, promoting smooth, plump skin.
The other important ingredient in Bellafil is collagen. This natural substance exists in our bodies already, helping to form the structure of the skin and creating a firm, supple texture. Through age or injury, collagen production can decrease, which creates skin that is more saggy and less plump. By including collagen in Bellafil, it helps to improve your skin’s natural texture.
Together, these are what make Bellafil so effective: the one-two punch of ingredients that fill in the physical depression in your skin, as well as enhancing its natural appearance.
