There are certain challenges that young people face as they enter into adulthood that are just part of the growing up process. For example, most people will experience some form of acne on their face during their teenage years. For some people, acne is just a passing annoyance. They may have a few breakouts, but as long as they keep their skin clean, and maybe with the help of some over-the-counter skin care products, they are able to keep the outbreaks to a minimum. For other people, acne can be a life-changing and lifelong battle.
Some individuals find themselves frequently visiting the dermatologist while trying treatment after treatment with the goal of eliminating their acne. As their acne becomes infected and inflamed, they are left with a face that is red. Dealing with this type of acne can be very frustrating. It can leave a person feeling like they are a social outcast. In both the short-term and the long-term, it can have a devastating effect on a person’s self-confidence and psyche.
However, there is something worse for acne sufferers than simply having acne. Unfortunately, depending on the severity of their acne, they may be left with acne scars. Acne scars are a lot worse than just having acne because at least with the acne, there is the hope that it will clear up. Acne scars, on the other hand, seem to be permanent.
Bellafill® is a dermal filler that can help individuals who are dealing with acne scars on their cheeks. It is designed to address cases of mild to severe acne scars, and it is designed to be used by patients who are over 21 years of age or older.
Bellafill® treatment is the most effective on atrophic acne scars. It uses collagen to provide immediate volume and to lift the level of the surrounding skin. At the same time, it has microspheres that work as a matrix to support the building of more collagen. The idea is that a patient will see immediate results and then continue to see them over the long run thanks to increased collagen production.
This injectable has been proven to be safe. It has been reviewed and approved by the FDA for use on facial wrinkles since 2011. Bellafill® is not an experimental treatment. It is something that has been shown to work in a safe way.
Of course, it is important that anyone who is considering using Bellafill® have realistic expectations as far as what to expect. This product can diminish the appearance of acne scars, giving your face a smoother appearance and helping you to regain the confidence you may have lost through the years of fighting with acne and the subsequent scars.
