What is Bellafill®?
Bellafill® is a simple in-office treatment that offers immediate correction and lasting results, and it’s an anti-aging game changer that’s the first injectable to last safely for up to five years. As opposed to hyaluronic acid fillers, where you have to go in every six to nine months for touch ups, which can be time-consuming and expensive, after your Bellafill® injection, your body absorbs the collagen over time, and the PMMA spheres remain to plump the area. It provides immediate volume and lift while the PMMA microspheres remain in place and create a matrix that supports collagen production in your skin for lasting improvement that helps replace lost collagen by working with your body’s natural processes. Bellafill® is the only filler on the market approved in the U.S. for the correction of acne scars, and it has proven safe and effective in well-controlled clinical studies.
What are the Benefits of Bellafill®?
Unlike hyaluronic acid fillers, which often dissolve within a few months, Bellafill® creates a lasting improvement in your skin. Its tiny, polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) microspheres are suspended within a base of smooth collagen gel. Once injected, Bellafill® immediately reduces the look of smile lines. Over time, your body uses the microspheres to create a “scaffold” onto which your own collagen will develop and grow, and then this collagen will form a foundation that adds volume to your wrinkles, reducing their appearance. These natural-looking results feel soft and smooth for up to 5 years.
Who is a Candidate for Bellafill®?
Bellafill® is a distinctive FDA-approved dermal filler that can be used by both women and men, for permanent implantation into your skin for the correction of wrinkles and fine lines, such as nasolabial folds or smile lines. Bellafill® is a non-reabsorbable dermal filler, unlike many other dermal fillers that are absorbed and require reinjection within less than a year, which means that your Bellafill® results lasts much, much longer. Your collagen injection immediately adds volume to your skin, lifting those wrinkles that are known as smile lines. The PMMA microsphere-created matrix that supports your body’s own collagen production lasts much longer than dermal fillers, which are reabsorbed into your body within less than a year. Bellafill® is a unique, injectable collagen filler with microspheres that can instantly smooth facial wrinkles for beautiful, natural-looking correction that lasts.
What is the Procedure for Bellafill®?
Bellafill® is a simple, in-office treatment with no downtime. You can immediately resume your normal daily activities, enjoying immediate correction and lasting improvement for pitted acne scars or to smooth smile lines. Your treatment with Bellafill® is very similar to treatments with conventional injectable fillers, the only difference being that Bellafill® requires a skin test to identify those patients who may have an allergy to bovine collagen or lidocaine, as lidocaine is provided to minimize your discomfort during your injection. During your skin test appointment, a small amount of purified bovine collagen gel is injected into your forearm to ensure you have no adverse reactions. Then, during your second appointment, if there have been no adverse reactions to your initial test, you are ready for your treatment. Upon injection, you will usually see immediate improvements to lines and wrinkles. Bellafill® contains lidocaine, which will lessen your discomfort from your procedure, and with proper placement, Bellafill® should not be felt following your treatment, although you may see immediate results in terms of wrinkle correction. You can return to your normal daily activities immediately after your procedure.
