Dr. Karen Soika
Dr. Karen Soika regularly receives patients seeking treatments for old acne scars. Now Dr. Karen Soika is set to introduce another innovative non-surgical treatment called Bellafill that is specifically designed to treat acne scars.
The good news is that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved Bellafill, making it the first dermal filler to be approved specifically for acne scar treatment. The approval was awarded on the basis of the outcomes of a placebo-controlled study conducted across 10 clinical centers.
According to the manufacturers of Bellafill, the approval from the FDA marks a major milestone for patients of acne scars who need an effective solution to treat not only the physical scars, but also the emotional suffering that is typically associated with it. About 40 to 50 million Americans have acne, and as many as 90 percent are likely to develop acne scars.
The approval of Bellafill is going to address is a major underlying need of people with acne scars. The need for a treatment such as Bellafill has also been supported by the results of an independent study in terms of its non-physical benefits. The study showed that acne scars negatively impact the self-confidence of over 70 percent of the patients. As many as 92 percent of the respondents believed that their self-confidence would be restored or improved if the acne scars were healed.
The key benefit of Bellafill is its long lasting performance. The manufacturer says that Bellafill has been classified as permanent filler, which makes it essentially a one-time treatment. The filler includes 80 percent purified bovine collagen and 20 percent PMMA microspheres and lidocaine. It is designed to produce transformational outcomes for patients seeking correction of their acne scars as well as reduction in the appearance of nasolabial folds.
Self-verified patient · Eye Lift
Dr. Soika is a highly competent and compassionate cosmetic surgeon. She did an eye lift for me and I am absolutely thrilled and satisfied with the results. She is masterful at her work and takes extra care to ensure proper follow up and recovery is accomplished.
I suffered deep thermal burns to my face caused by the incompetence of a Dermatologist for 1 year with no relief, until I met Dr. Soika. She administered a treatment to give me the relief I was looking for. She was the only Dr.who took the time to listen, diagnose and performed a procedure with great results! Because of her, I am on the road to recovery!
My sons wedding was coming and I wanted to look and feel my best, I called Dr. Soika because I saw her local Ad. It was the best call I made! My skin looks 7 years younger-tighter, and I look for rested and awake. I didn’t believe it was possible without surgery, but Dr. Soika did an incredible procedure in 1 1/2 hours with no down time.A.
