Improve Acne Scars & Lines with Bellafill*
At Hurwitz Center for Plastic Surgery in Pittsburgh, PA, we can provide Bellafill® injections for patients who are unhappy with smile lines, acne scars, and other signs of aging. As one of the longest-lasting dermal fillers available, Bellafill can smooth out nasolabial folds and reduce the appearance of acne scars for three to five years. Because it contains a numbing agent, patients can also enjoy an overall more comfortable treatment. Our skilled team, overseen by Dr. Dennis Hurwitz, can provide you with precise, effective non-surgical treatments to help you rejuvenate your appearance.*
What is Bellafill?
Bellafill is a dermal filler composed of bovine collagen and biocompatible polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) microspheres. Supported by the microspheres, the collagen can immediately restore volume. This combination helps maintain the production of collagen for up to three to five years.*
Advantages of Bellafill
- Immediate increase in volume
- Minimized discomfort
- Compatibility with all skin types
- Slower reabsorption of the solution for longer-lasting results
- Reduced number of injections for reduced long-term costs
Unfortunately, Bellafill is not the ideal solution for all patients.
Bellafill was specifically designed for patients over 21 years old to treat deep nasolabial folds and moderate to severe acne scarring. It is not recommended for those who:
- Have severe allergies
- Are specifically allergic to lidocaine or collagen
- Have bleeding disorders
- Are prone to hypertrophic scarring or keloids
It is essential that you share your medical history with us during your initial consultation so we can determine which treatment is best suited to your needs.
Because the administration of Bellafill is so crucial to the treatment's success, our entire team is extensively and carefully trained. About four to six weeks before your treatment, we will conduct a skin test to ensure that you are not allergic to the solution.*
Most patients see their desired results within one to three treatment sessions.*
On the day of your appointment, your aesthetician will inject the solution directly into the treatment areas with a thin, small needle. Typically, this procedure takes less than an hour. Most patients see their desired results within one to three treatment sessions.*
After Your Treatment
You can return to your normal activities immediately after your appointment. However, you may experience mild:
You may also notice lumps or itching around the injection site. However, these side effects should resolve themselves within a few days of treatment. Avoiding the use of anti-inflammatory medications and blood thinners for about three weeks prior to your appointment should help minimize bruising or bleeding.
Patients usually return to our office four to six weeks after treatment for a check-up so that we can evaluate their results and determine whether more injections are necessary.
