If you’re beginning to see the signs of aging in your face or if you have indented acne scars from past acne breakouts, you may be looking for a solution.
While various products and procedures on the market today can help you smooth wrinkles and obtain a more youthful appearance, Bellafill is a great option for those who are seeking a longer-lasting solution than other dermal fillers provide.
What Is Bellafill?
Bellafill is a collagen-based dermal filler that contains microspheres of polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA). PMMA is a type of resin that is commonly used in medical implants and has been proven to reduce the appearance of acne scars.
Because it is collagen-based, Bellafill is different from other dermal fillers such as Restylane and Juvéderm. Those dermal fillers consist of a concentration of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid does not last as long as Bellafill’s solution
Typically, patients who use hyaluronic acid fillers will need touch-ups to maintain their results every three to six months. Results from Bellafill injectable fillers last much longer — in some cases, up to five years.
What Areas Can Bellafill Treat?
Bellafill fillers are most effective for treating nasolabial folds and acne scars. As a collagen-based solution, Bellafill stimulates the production of collagen in the facial tissues. This is quite helpful for those who are beginning to see the effects of reduced collagen in their skin.
Nasolabial folds are deep indentations that form at the base of the cheeks and appear diagonally from the mouth and nose. These lines often deepen due to age and become more noticeable over time. Belafill can help reduce the appearance of these lines, leading to a more youthful appearance.
Bellafill is the only FDA-approved dermal filler on the market designed to improve the appearance of acne scars. Patients can use Bellafill to plump indented scars that cause the skin to have a bumpy appearance. The addition of volume raises the dents that have formed to the level of surrounding skin, fading acne scars.
What Are the Benefits of Bellafill?
As a collagen-based dermal filler, Bellafill can offer longer-lasting results than traditional hyaluronic acid dermal fillers such as Juvéderm and Restylane. Results from Bellafill may last up to five years for injections made to smooth out nasolabial folds. When used to treat acne scars on the face, Bellafill results typically last up to a year.
Touch-ups can maintain the results that you achieve from Bellafill. Since you won’t need regular injections, this solution is best for those who don’t like to spend a lot of time at the spa and desire a longer-lasting, natural solution to wrinkles and acne scars.
Since the solution is collagen-based, it helps to stimulate your body’s own collagen production capabilities. This can improve results over time and help to slow down the facial aging process.
What Can I Expect During a Bellafill Treatment?
Before undergoing a Bellafill treatment, you’ll meet with a trained specialist at A Younger You Medical Spa. We will discuss the goals you are seeking to achieve through the use of Bellafill fillers and design an appropriate treatment plan for you.
Depending on your goals, you may want to include other treatments or dermal fillers to reduce wrinkles or reveal younger-looking skin in addition to Bellafill injectable fillers.
Once we’ve reviewed your medical history and know about any prescription drugs you are currently taking, we’ll be able to schedule an appointment for you to undergo treatment. Before using Bellafill fillers, we’ll need to give you an allergy test to make sure you aren’t sensitive to any of the ingredients in the product.
During the treatment, we’ll thoroughly cleanse your skin before injecting the filler into strategic locations. Precise placement of the injections allows for maximum results designed to meet your treatment goals. Afterward, we’ll apply ice to the treatment sites before releasing you to continue with your normal daily activities.
Results from a Bellafill filler treatment will be immediately apparent, so you’ll be able to enjoy smoother-looking skin directly after your appointment.
The entire process is relatively quick and can usually be completed in less than an hour. Prior to leaving the appointment, we’ll give you guidance on how to care for your skin in the days afterward and maintain your results over time.
While you will see initial immediate improvement, you can expect the filler to continue to enhance the appearance of your skin over the following three to six months. Since it stimulates collagen production, your skin will naturally continue to improve in areas where the injections were performed.
Can I Use Additional Treatments to Enhance My Results?
Yes! For those seeking to enhance other areas of the skin that are beginning to show the signs of aging, other fillers or neuromodulator injections may be recommended.
For example, a neuromodulator such as Botox can help reduce the appearance of forehead lines that appear as the result of making facial expressions over time. Dermal fillers such as Juvéderm or Restylane can plump the lips or other areas of the face that are beginning to show signs of drooping or aging.
One of our trained team members will work with you to develop a comprehensive and customized treatment program.
