Ninety-nine percent of people would have more confidence if their acne and acne scars were gone, according to a new survey for Suneva Medical. When it comes to skin issues, respondents feel that acne scars are worse than having acne, eczema or rosacea. Nearly half of adults still have not outgrown their acne, and 48 percent withdraw from social outings and parties with friends because of their acne scars or facial blemishes, the survey showed. In addition, 61 percent of those polled would wear less makeup if they were able to effectively treat acne scars and minimize the scarring, and almost 50 percent of people with acne scars or blemishes don’t put photos online without heavy editing or filters.
Fully 54 percent do not feel confident on a date because of their acne scars or facial blemishes, and 81 percent of respondents would select clear skin over keeping their fashion on trend, a nail manicure maintained, or maintaining a hairstyle that is rivaled by celebrities. Suneva Medical is the manufacturer of Bellafill®, a dermal filler approved by the US Food and Drug Administration for the correction of moderate to severe, atrophic, distensible facial acne scars on the cheek in patients over the age of 21 years. The survey was conducted by Havas Formula, the public relations agency that represents Suneva Medical.
