012312-1The FDA last week approved Bellafill (formerly known as Artefill) to treat acne scars. While other injectable products have been used for acne scars, Bellafill is the first and only one approve for this use.

In the study which lead to FDA approval, patients had a 90% satisfaction rate 1 year after treatment. While not all acne scars were eliminated, more than half of the scars had a significant improvement in appearance. 

“Combined with fractional CO2 laser and scar excision, Bellafill adds another treatment option for those with significant acne scars.  Based on my experience with Bellafill, I’m sure our patients will see a new level of improvement.”
