Acne can be challenging to treat and an embarrassing condition for anyone.
Acne occurs when your pores become clogged with sebum, dead skin cells and bacteria that is normally present on your skin. This blockage leads to disruption of healthy skin cells resulting in redness, and sometimes a worsening infection. Treatments are necessary to control the condition and prevent chronic inflammation and scarring. Treatments are individualized based upon the type of acne, amount of inflammation and presence of scarring. Combination treatment options may be necessary to manage the condition and/or treat any existing scarring.
Customized facial regimens consisting of peels, microdermabrasion, galvanic treatments and extractions may be recommended. Laser treatments may be used to suppress sebum production and reduce bacteria growth.
If scarring exists, treatments may include CO2 laser resurfacing, microneedling, subcision and/ or fillers.
BELLAFILL FOR ACNE is the ONLY FDA filler approved to treat atrophic acne scars. SCL is a provider and National Training site for Bellafill.
Bellafill is injected below the depressed scar and brings them to the level of the surrounding skin. It adds volume to this area reducing the appearance of the scarring. Over the next months, collagen is formed producing a foundation that gives the overlying skin a long lasting improvement. This procedure may be combined with other skin resurfacing techniques or may be a single treatment option. Bellafill is a long-lasting filler and a great solution for treating acne scars.
