As we age, our skin loses collagen, which causes it to wrinkle and sag. Bellafill injections can help to restore this lost collagen to create a smoother, more youthful looking complexion.
What is Bellafill?
Bellafill is a dermal filler to soften the appearance of smile lines and acne scars. Smile lines, also known as nasolabial folds, run from the corner of the nose to the sides of the mouth and can cause an aged appearance. Bellafill can also add volume under acne scars, softening their appearance. Bellafill contains lidocaine to help make the injectable treatment process as comfortable as possible.
How Does Bellafill Work?
Bellafill contains small polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) microspheres suspended in collagen gel. When Bellafill is injected, the body uses these microspheres to create a framework onto which collagen can develop. This collagen adds volume to the skin, reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles. More than one treatment session may be needed to see optimal results.
Bellafill results are immediate and can last up to five years. Patients may experience temporary swelling, redness, pain, bruising, or itching at the treatment site, which should resolve quickly. There is no downtime needed, so patients are able to return to their normal daily activities right away.
