Angst Against Adult Acne Scars

Avoiding having to deal with the skin damage caused by adult acne can be an uncomfortable concern. If you are someone who suffers from the ever-lasting effects of diverse acne conditions well into adulthood there is an unexpected solution.

An alarming number of individuals, estimated between 40 million to 50 million Americans, have been affected by some form of acne, and not just teenagers. People attempt to go through countless distinct treatments to cure themselves from the unsightly and often embarrassing dermal ailment. Although up to 80% of people aged 11 to 30 say they've sought after various types of treatment options, like antibiotics, at-home popping, creams, cleansers, and ointments, it turns out that many, particularly women, still have the acne scarring causing them to never forget those traumatizing years.

Acne is Hard to Treat so is Acne Scarring

Since there are so many personal factors involved: plugging of pores and oil production, unhealthy diet, genetics, sun exposure, poor skincare, etc. Inflammation can arise from mild to the most severe cases; research indicates that even on the surface of the skin of acne patients where one doesn't see any reminisce of pimples, breakouts and blemishes, there are inflammatory elements on a molecular level which never diminish. Assorted bacteria and hormones, particularly androgens (the male hormones present in men and women) will require additional attention. They overstimulate the oil glands and hair follicles in the skin, causing communal acne flares.

Fighting Back!

A hot new facial filler is being used by some of the most social influencing celebrities and others headliners because of its permanent effects vs. temporary results in comparison to previously accredited leading industry products on the cosmetic market like Juvederm / Restylane.

Introducing the only dermal filler approved for the correction of moderate to severe, atrophic, distensible facial acne scars on the cheek in patients over the age of 21 years.

Bellafill offers an important difference to patients who know acne scar correction can be very costly. What if instead of just filling, you could actually restore?

It has distinctive properties. The Bellafill formulated solution works in two ways:

* The collagen provides immediate volume below atrophic acne scars to lift them to the level of the surrounding skin.

* The PMMA microspheres create a matrix that supports endogenous collagen production.

About Face

Most aging and maturing individuals associate acne with their teen years (hopefully so), when most people experience complexion-marring acne at an all time high as it erodes one's self confidence. However, fitting in with your peers is not just of the utmost importance during the life stage of adolescence. Esteem and awareness is something every adult struggles with as well. It just isn't spoken about as much.

It is time to erase the scars of the past.

Zapping Zits

A healthy lifestyle goes a long way toward keeping your skin blemish-free, no matter what age you are. Angst regarding acne is a normal reaction, but stressing about it does not help. Although skin problems are a seemingly normal aesthetic issue, they are not permanent. Acne is temporary and so are the emotional and physical scars.
