Acne Scar Treatment

Combination treatment of acne scars leads to best results and there are a number of new treatment options available to choose from. 
The first that deserves mention is Bellafill. This facial filler is the only FDA approved filler specifically indicated for acne scars. Bellafill injection is performed in combination with subcision and this dual treatment has proven efficacy and safely for acne scars. 
To improve results, PDO threads inserted into the mid-dermis has led to significant improvement in our patients. We also have found success with Microneedling, Clear + Brillant and Ultherapy.

Before and After



More Info

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has recently approved the dermal filler, Bellafill®, for the treatment of acne scars. Bellafill® represents a significant clinical advancement as the only filler on the market approved for this disfiguring skin condition. Acne is the most common skin disorder in the U.S., affecting 40-50 million people and up to 95% of people with acne may go on to suffer from scarring. Bellafill® was studied extensively prior to its FDA approval and proven to be safe and effective for the correction of moderate to severe, atrophic, distensible facial acne scars on the cheek in patients over the age of 21 years.

“These types of acne scars affect millions of people and can have a profoundly negative impact on their self-esteem and self-confidence,” said Nicholas L. Teti, Jr., Chairman and CEO at Suneva Medical. “The results of this rigorous clinical study prove that Bellafill® reduces the appearance of acne scars—providing a solution to this widespread skin condition that previously had limited treatment choices. Bellafill® can have a transformational effect on a patient’s appearance and in turn, we hope an improvement in quality of life.”


In an independent study, more than 70% of respondents felt their acne scars negatively impacted their self-confidence, with 92% indicating self-confidence would be restored or improved if their acne scars were healed. (*reference) To help treat disfiguring acne scars, Bellafill® adds volume to the skin to lift and smooth out pitted acne scars to the level of the surrounding skin. The treatment is a simple, in-office procedure with minimal to no downtime.
