Bellafil is a long term filer that lasts at least 5 years and is approved by the FDA for acne scars.cIt works better on larger scars after sub icon or the release of scars with a larger bore needle to develop a pocket for the placement of Bellaflil.

Best Filler for Acne Scars
Treatment recommendations vary depending on the type of acne scar (see diagram in link below). For most patients, a combination of therapies may need to be utilized to achieve optimum correction. Bellafill is one of the best long term fillers when used to treat rolling type acne scars. It has already been FDA approved for lasting at least 5 years in the treated areas. Preliminary studies indicate it may last 10 years.
Please visit a dermatologist or plastic surgeon who specifically specializes in treating scars and acne.
Best of luck,

Acne Scarring -- Requires a Combination of Fractional Laser Resurfacing, Fillers Like Bellafill, Subcision and Eclipse Micropen
I suggest a combination approach for acne scars including subcision, lasers, and fillers. We use bellafill, sculptra and other long term fillers but HA fillers can be used. Best, Dr. Ener.
Fillers for "hole type" scars
In my opinion, the treatment of acne scars depends upon the type of scar. For ice pick and acne pits, TCA cross, ablative and non-ablative lasers, and microneedle radiofrequency "infini" are my treatment of choice. If the base of the scar cannot be lifted by stretching the skin, fillers usually will not help. You should look for a doctor who has experience in treating acne scars. Ask to see photos of patients. Hope this helps. Good luck.
Best filler for acne scars is Bellafill
Bellafill is the only FDA approved filler for acne scars. It will lead to permanent correction of the scar. It is usually done in 2 treatments. A syringe will cover about 8 scars which are rolling type and distensible (become flat when spread). I also like using Infini for acne scars.
I have found that a combination of fillers and lasers can best treat this type of acne scars. Please consult a board certified dermatologist with experience with scars and acne for the best cosmetic results. Best, Dr. Green
