Nearly 85% of all people suffer from acne at one point or another, making it the most common skin disorder in the United States. Long after your dreaded acne is gone, you might be left behind with some pretty unsightly acne scars (as if having pimples in the first place wasn’t bad enough!). WebMD reports that the FDA recently approved a half-dermatology, half-plastic surgery type of procedure called Bellafill that produces incredible results, creating a modernized stepping-stone for smoother skin.Bellafill is an injectable filler that works to add volume to parts of the skin indented due to scarring. It supports the production of your body’s own collagen with a polymethylmethacrylate collagen filler in order to lift indentations such as wrinkles or acne scars, making them significantly less noticeable. Clinical trials proved that noteworthy improvement was made after three to six months, and even continued to show improvement at one year.. The study also found that doctors judged 84% of 87 patients treated with Bellafill had improved.Since acne scars are difficult to treat and often prominent, they can lead to insecurities and confidence issues which one might battle for a lifetime. Therefore, for those of us with acne scars, this is thrilling news. At $1,000 an injection, it’s not cheap, but that won’t be a barrier for many who really want to get rid of their acne scars.
