Acne can come in lots of shapes and sizes and at different stages of life. No matter how moderate or severe acne is, it can be very troublesome especially if it is prominently located on the face. And even when acne clears up, it can leave behind scars that affect some people both physically and emotionally.
Luckily there are now several options to correct acne scarring. The newest treatment available at the Lupo Center is called Bellafill, the first dermal filler available for the correction of moderate to severe pitted facial acne scars on the cheek in patients over the age of 21 years. Each Bellafill injection provides an immediate, visible lift and fill to the acne scars with lasting results.
The ideal Bellafill candidate:
- A patient with little to no active acne – Our board certified dermatologists can recommend treatments to help control active acne before Bellafill is administered.
- A patient with distensible acne scars – Distensible acne scars improve when they are stretched.
- A patient with rolling pitted scars – There are three types of pitted acne scars: rolling, ice pick and boxcar. Bellafill is indicated to treat rolling scars.
