For clients who suffer from acne scars, there are usually three different types of scars related to the condition: narrow, rolling and boxcar. One of our newer treatments, Bellafill, is a dermal filler designed specifically for rolling and boxcar acne scars. Rolling acne scars are located on the cheeks, and are the scars responsible for the “pitted” appearance so common on those who suffered from bad acne. Boxcar scars have steeper edges and clearer borders, and are more difficult to smooth out and blend into surrounding skin. Patients receiving Bellafill in our Richmond, VA, offices will find it immediately reduces the appearance of both these types of scars; the treatment is an outpatient procedure that takes under an hour to perform.
Our patients come from all over Fairfax County for Bellafill and other acne scar treatments, and our testimonials page is evidence of these treatments’ successes. Bellafill has a very high short- and long-term success rate, and patients also report few enduring side effects. This short outpatient procedure could be for you if you are over 21, do not have pre-existing conditions that could impede the filler from working properly, and can travel to our offices from Fairfax County or Washington, DC, for the Bellafill treatment.
Bellafill in Washington, DC
The offices of Dr. Travis Shaw are the exclusive provider of Bellafill in the Fairfax County and Washington, DC areas. However, Bellafill is not the only option when it comes to successfully treating facial scars. For scars that aren’t from acne, and for which a different treatment would be a better option, Dr. Shaw is also certified in laser dermal resurfacing and micro needling as well as Matristem TM extracellular matrix therapy. Dr. Shaw started his practice to provide residents of Virginia and Washington, DC, with Bellafill and other treatments to improve the appearance of scars after volunteering at a clinic in Africa, where he worked with individuals suffering from severe facial deformities. He then started his practice providing services like scar removal and Bellafill to Fairfax County and other nearby areas, inspired by what he had seen and hoping to help others to overcome the difficulties of having visible facial scarring.
Clients looking for Bellafill in Washington, DC, Richmond, VA, and Fairfax County areas can call Dr. Shaw to schedule a consultation.
