Neurotoxins vs Fillers
Even though fillers and neurotoxins both reduce wrinkles, they work in completely different ways. Fillers minimize the lines and wrinkles caused as the skin loses both its elasticity and its youthful volume. When injected, fillers restore volume where it’s been lost to create a smoother appearance. Neurotoxins, on the other hand, addresses “dynamic wrinkles” — those caused by the repetitive contractions of facial muscles as we change expressions. Neurotoxins, also known as a neuromodulator, temporarily immobilizes those tiny muscles. Not sure where to start?

How It Works
Bellafill is an injectable filler that’s FDA approved to treat nasolabial folds. These folds, sometimes called “smile lines,” extend from the nose to the corners of the mouth. At A Younger You Medical Spa, we strive to deliver the best Bellafill Burlington has to offer. Bellafill provides instant smoothness, with long-lasting results: In the longest and largest study ever conducted on fillers, Bellafill was proven to be effective through five years. That means that you can enjoy your results for much longer than you would with hyaluronic acid-based fillers. Bellafill has 2 main components:
Thanks to its 2 innovative components, Bellafill creates instant results that you can enjoy as soon as you leave the office. As the original collagen gel fades away, your body naturally replaces it with your own collagen around the microspheres, for unparalleled long-term smoothness.
Candidacy and Safety
The best Bellafill candidates are women or men, 21 and older, who are bothered by the look of their nasolabial folds and wish to avoid the regular touch-up treatments associated with other fillers. Bellafill is FDA approved, and both its collagen gel and its PMMA microspheres have established records of safety. PMMA is an acrylic material that’s widely used in medicine. Bellafill is safe for skin of all types and colors. However, an allergy test is required prior to treatment to make sure prospective patients aren’t sensitive to the product.
How It Works
Bellafill is an injectable filler that’s FDA approved to treat certain types of acne scars. It yields instant smoothness that our Brookfield Bellafill patients can appreciate as soon as they leave the office — and it’s been clinically proven to last through twelve months. Its two important components work with your skin for soft smoothness that looks and feels very natural:
Candidacy & Safety
Bellafill is approved for use on men and women who are 21 and older. It works on distensible and atrophic acne scars on the cheeks. Distensible scars smooth out when you tug on them; atrophic scars are pitted or depressed in the skin. Bellafill is safe on all skin types, textures, and colors, but patients require an allergy test before treatment. Both the collagen gel and PMMA in Bellafill have established safety records. PMMA has long been used in other areas of medicine, such as orthopedic surgery, dentistry, and ophthalmology.
Cleansing Your Skin
Bellafill for acne is an outpatient procedure. Treatment begins by cleansing your skin and preparing it for treatment. A series of carefully placed injections then add volume to smooth away acne scars. Your Bellafill treatment is relatively brief, and there is no downtime, so you may return to your normal activities as soon as you leave the treatment session. Although significant side effects are uncommon, you may experience localized sensations, such as itching, bruising, swelling, redness, discoloration, bumps, or increased sensitivity. These effects are typically temporary and will go away on their own.
Bellafill is a smooth, collagen gel-based filler that contains tiny PMMA microspheres. The collagen gel in Bellafill provides immediate volume and lift to correct lines and wrinkles, smoothing them away for instant results. Even as the collagen is absorbed by your body, the PMMA microspheres remain in place, creating a “scaffold” that triggers and supports your own natural collagen production. Because your own collagen replaces the collagen gel from the initial injections, results last seamlessly through five years.
Topical treatments, chemical peels, dermabrasion, microneedling, and laser resurfacing are among the current available treatment options for acne scars. However, some of these treatments may require significant downtime. In some cases, results can take time to emerge — and other treatments often lack rigorous, controlled data to support their safety or efficacy. Bellafill is the only filler that’s approved by the FDA to treat acne scars, providing an entirely new treatment choice for patients.
Yes. Bellafill is the only FDA-approved filler for the correction of moderate to severe atrophic, distensible facial acne scars on the cheeks in patients 21 and over. Bellafill has been proven to provide both immediate and lasting results in rigorous clinical studies, with demonstrated effectiveness, safety, and high rates of patient satisfaction. As with many injectable fillers, you may experience bruising, itchiness, pain, swelling, redness, discoloration, lumpiness, bumps, acne, or increased sensitivity at the treatment site. These side effects usually go away by themselves within a few days.
In a clinical study on acne scarring, Bellafill remained safe and effective for patients through twelve months. In a separate clinical study on smoothing out nasolabial folds (smile lines), its safety and effectiveness was established through five years. Your individual treatment plan will take these findings into account and develop a schedule that works best for you.
Bellafill creates a lasting improvement in your skin by smoothing out the lines around the nasolabial folds. There’s no required downtime after your treatment with Bellafill. You can return to your normal routine immediately.
