How long to see full results from one treatment? Are initial improvements short-lived?
Hello and thanks for posting.
Bellafill is a hybrid product consisting of 80% bovine collagen and 20% PMMA. The bovine collagen is relatively short-lived, about 2 months. The PMMA is permanent. So there is immediate improvement after Bellafill treatment of acne scars. The initial improvement often backs off as the bovine collagen is dissolved. The next treatment session adds to the benefit from the first one, and so on. Depending on the extent and severity of the acne scarring, we often plan a series of treatments over a 6 month time period.
Another important point is that optimal treatment of acne scaring involves multiple modalities – Bellafill, PDO threads, laser, microneedle, and Ultherapy all play a role.
I hope that this information helps and best of luck to you!
