What Benefits Can Bellafill Injectable Fillers Offer?

August 16, 2022 by A Younger You

Injectable Fillers

A study from Plastic and Aesthetic Research shows that collagen production decreases every year after early adulthood by 1% to 1.5%. Loss of collagen can lead to skin laxity and even facial volume loss. This loss of volume can accentuate wrinkles and fine lines, making you look older.

At A Younger You Medical Spa, we offer Bellafill fillers to combat the signs of aging. Keep reading to learn more about Bellafill.

What Are Bellafill Injectable Fillers?

Bellafill is a cosmetic injectable filler that has FDA approval. It contains collagen and tiny beads of polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA). We recommend Bellafill for treating nasolabial folds, also known as smile lines, allowing you to get smoother skin.

As you age, your skin no longer has the flexibility to bounce back after smiling, frowning, or making other expressions. This lack of flexibility and the skin laxity that comes with age can lead to dynamic wrinkles. Some of these dynamic wrinkles can then become static ones, which means you can see them no matter your facial expression.

A filler like Bellafill can help treat static wrinkles.

Bellafill stimulates the production of collagen, a crucial protein your body naturally makes. The collagen in the filler offers immediate results, while the PMMA microspheres suspended in the collagen work as a scaffold on which your body can create its own new collagen.

You can enjoy quick results while also knowing that the Bellafill fillers will keep helping you look your best for years to come.

Bellafill is used to treat certain acne scars. It works best on atrophic and distensible acne scars on the cheeks. Atrophic scars are those that cause pitting and depressions on the skin, while distensible ones are those that you can smooth out by pulling on them.

The best candidates for Bellafill injectable fillers are men or women who have acne scarring or smile lines they would like to diminish and who do not want to get fillers regularly. It is not the best option if you are any of the following:

  • Under the age of 21
  • Allergic to bovine collagen
  • Severely allergic
  • Someone with conditions that cause irregular scarring

We will perform a skin test before administering a filler to ensure that the filler will benefit you.

Bellafill vs. Other Fillers

Other fillers, like Juvéderm and Restylane, can offer excellent results, but they do require regular injections. That is not so with Bellafill. You can expect results to last for as long as five years.

Another benefit that Bellafill offers is that it treats acne scars. It also stimulates your body's collagen production, allowing you to get natural, long-lasting results.

In the long run, Bellafill is also a more affordable option since you don't have to worry about getting injections every couple of months.

Preparing for Bellafill Injectable Fillers

The first step is to schedule an appointment with us so that we can assess the areas you would like treatment for. We will always get your full medical history, as well as information about medications and adverse reactions.

Let us know about any other cosmetic fillers you may have gotten in the past and what kind of experience you had with them.

The week before your appointment, you should stop taking certain medications and supplements:

  • Ibuprofen
  • Aspirin
  • Vitamin E
  • Fish oil
  • St. John's wort

You should also avoid alcohol and smoking. Don't use a tanning bed or any other tanning options, and don't schedule any other skin treatments before or immediately after the injections.

During the Appointment

Come to your filler appointment with a clean face. Don't apply makeup, lotions, creams, or anything else to the treatment area. We will clean your face again and apply a topical anesthetic.

We can then begin the injections. How many we use will depend on the treatment area and the results you want. During one session, we can treat multiple areas.

The entire procedure can last between 15 and 60 minutes, with results appearing soon after. You are then free to return to your day.

Why Bellafill? Long-Lasting Results with No Downtime

One of the most important benefits that Bellfill fillers offer is that they don't require downtime. You can start showing off your new look soon after the injections.

We recommend, however, that you do not scratch, rub, or pick at the injection sites so that you don't dislodge the filler. Wait a day to apply makeup. You should also stay away from the sun and wear sunscreen even if the day is cloudy. We also recommend avoiding alcohol for at least a week after the injections.

Bellafill results will only get better with time. As your collagen production ramps up, your skin can look smoother and more youthful for up to five years. That is longer than any other type of filler.

For treating acne scars, the results can last for about one year.

To ensure you can enjoy the benefits of the Bellafill injections for as long as possible, you should protect your skin from the sun and follow an appropriate skin care regimen.
