Bellafill does not move. Lumpiness has more to do with injector technique than any problem with the filler, same as all other fillers. It is as safe if not safer than any other filler as far as incidence of nodules or granulomas.
Bellafill is now approved for acne scar treatment, the only filler to have received such distinction. Go to link for 5 year safety data.
FDA approved for acne scars
Bellafill was recently approved by the FDA for treatment of atrophic, distensible acne scars on the cheeks. It is the only dermal filler with FDA approval for acne scars. If this is something that you are interested in i would consult with board certified physician. Also I suggest looking into CO2 fraxel laser for acne scars just based on the severity of your scarring. I hope this helps you on your journey!:)
BellaFill is FDA approved for acne scars. It can be placed very precisely and has a 5 year indication.
Bellafill was recently approved by the FDA for treatment of atrophic, distensible acne scars on the cheeks. It is the only dermal filler with FDA approval for acne scars. Acne scars come in many varieties, however, and you should visit a board-certified dermatologist to find out if Bellafill or another treatment option such as fractionated laser resurfacing or subcision may be better for you. If you visit the Bellafill official website, you can find results from the clinical trials leading to FDA approval.
Bellafill (formerly known as
Artefill) is a semi-permanent filler made of bovine collagen gel. It is
FDA-approved for nasolabial folds and acne scars. It helps stimulate new
collagen formation. Since it is a bovine collagen, a skin test is
initially needed to make sure you're not allergic to it.
Artefill now Bellafill Approved for Acne Scars
Thought I would forward this recently released information concerning Bellafill for acne scars. Always make sure your injector is experienced with using Bellfill. Read reviews and ask to talk to patients who have had the treatment before. #Bellafill #acnescarring
Artefill (Bellafill) for Acne Scarring
This is an excellent
question because there are a lot of people who have this problem and do
not know where to turn. Most of the treatments
for your problem are unsatisfactory at best.
Artefill, which has been recently rebranded as Bellafill, works
wonderfully for the rolling scars that acne can produce and like you seem to
have in your photos. The company that
makes Bellafill has completed a study but it is not available to the public
since it has been submitted to the FDA.
What this means is that the company cannot talk about Bellafill for acne
treatment until the FDA completes its review and the FDA will not let the study
be released until it has completed the review.
How long that will take is anyone’s guess but the company, Suneva, has
been waiting at least 6 months now.
This does not mean that you
cannot get treated. Injection of acne
scars I simply off label and this is something that practitioners do all the
time. Like Botox for the forehead is off
Bellafill is very safe and I
have added a video about this here.
For rolling acne scars, it
is unsurpassed as a filler. It will not
get rid of the color and will not give your “perfect” skin but it is much
better than lasers and chemical peels for your problem.
I hope that helps.
