Bellafill®: A Long-Lasting Dermal Filler for Wrinkles and Acne Scarring | A Younger You Medical Spa

Over time, loss of collagen and elastin can cause your skin to wrinkle and fold and make it look more aged. Thankfully, there are many options available for rejuvenating your appearance and alleviating these concerns. 

One of the longest-lasting solutions on the market today is Bellafill. This treatment can help fill in wrinkles, lines, and even acne scars for a more youthful and smooth appearance. At A Younger You Medical Spa in Brookfield, we can help refresh your appearance with our Bellafill injections. 

What Is Bellafill? 

Bellafill is a unique dermal filler that helps to reduce the appearance of smile lines and other lines and wrinkles on the face. Treatment with Bellafill is a fast process and it is non-invasive and low-downtime. This makes it a viable option for individuals who are seeking anti-aging solutions that don’t require surgery or long recovery times.

What Makes Bellafill Different from Other Dermal Fillers?

Many dermal fillers are made with ingredients that are designed to help fill in the loss of volume under the skin. This allows wrinkles and lines to smooth out on the surface of the skin and restores youthful volume to the skin. Bellafill is different because it doesn’t just fill wrinkles, but it also helps to promote your skin’s natural production of collagen. It is unique because it provides both immediate and long-lasting benefits.

Immediate Benefits

As with other dermal fillers, Bellafill can provide immediate results because of the gel carrier that provides volume to the area. This material is a collagen gel that can correct fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and loss of volume by the time you leave our office. 

Long-Lasting Benefits

In addition to the collagen gel, Bellafill also includes polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) microspheres. This ingredient is what provides more long-lasting results. The microspheres remain in the treatment area and create a framework on which collagen and elastin fibers can continue to be produced. Even after the collagen gel is absorbed and disappears, your body can keep producing collagen because of the stimulation of the microspheres. 

What Is Bellafill Used For? 

Nasolabial Folds Treatment

One of the most common areas that is treated with Bellafill is the smile lines, also called nasolabial folds. Loss of volume or deep lines in this area can make you look more tired or aged than you feel and can give your face an older appearance. Bellafill cosmetic filler is indicated for use in this area and has FDA approval. This nasolabial folds treatment is a beneficial option because of how long-lasting and effective the treatment can be compared to other options.  

Bellafill for Acne Scars

Bellafill injectable filler is also FDA-approved for filling in acne scarring. This provides a longer-term solution than other traditional fillers. If you have depressed acne scars, Bellafill for acne scars can be particularly effective.  

Bellafill for Men

Over 4 million men have received dermal filler treatments in the United States and it’s becoming an increasingly popular treatment. Whether you are looking for a nasolabial folds treatment, wrinkle reduction treatments, or solutions for acne scars, Bellafill can be a good option for men. Treatments are maintenance-free because results can last for many years. The results can also be very subtle and natural looking since your own body is doing much of the work. 

How Long Does Bellafill Last? 

Bellafill can provide results up to 5 years after treatment for injections in the nasolabial fold area. For acne scarring, Bellafill can last up to 12 months. 

What Are Bellafill Treatments Like? 

Treatments should always begin with a consultation to make sure you are a good candidate for Bellafill cosmetic filler. It has been tested in people over 21 who have all skin types. Before establishing your candidacy, we perform a skin allergy test to make sure you are not allergic to any of the ingredients. 

The treatment itself is a fast process. We will inject the dermal filler into the area at several different points. You may feel a pinch or pressure with injections. Since the formula contains a small amount of lidocaine, this discomfort will diminish as treatment continues.  

After treatment, most people go back to normal activities right away. You can expect a little redness and itching at the injection site which goes away within 1 to 7 days. We recommend staying away from any strenuous activity and avoiding touching or rubbing the area for approximately 24-48 hours. We will give you more individualized instructions at the time of your appointment.  

How Often Should Bellafill Be Injected for Continued Results?

Most people who have Bellafill injections are happy with their results for the full year (for acne scarring) or full five years (for nasolabial folds). However, you can talk to your doctor if you are interested in getting maintenance treatments for your facial lines or scars. 

Can Bellafill Be Used Elsewhere? 

While FDA-approved for nasolabial folds and acne scarring, Bellafill can be used off-label for adding volume to areas such as the temples and cheeks. Always ask your doctor to find out what treatments may be suitable for your situation.
