FDA approves a new drug for acne scarring



The FDA has recently approved a drug, Bellafill, for management of acne scarring. Bellafill is an injected gel that increases the volume of the skin to lift the skin and smooth out the hollow acne scars to the level of the surrounding normal skin.
In the research which led to an FDA approval, 64% out of 84 patients who were treated with Bellafill reported significant improvement after 6 months, compared to 33% patients who were administered a placebo.
According to Dr. Jeffrey Salomon, assistant professor of plastic surgery at Yale University School of Medicine, the cost of Bellafill gel injection is about $1,000 per injection and is not covered under insurance.
