Bellafill might be for you if:
- Wrinkles, fine lines or deep creases are affecting your appearance
- You are seeking a long-lasting solution for improving imperfections like acne scars
Bellafill® is FDA approved for the correction of facial wrinkles known as nasolabial folds, or smile lines, and the correction of moderate to severe, atrophic, distensible facial acne scars on the cheek in patients over the age of 21 years. It is also the only dermal filler established safe and effective for the correction of nasolabial folds through five years! Capable of both restoring volume and spurring collagen growth, this dermal filler provides patients with immediate results.
What do I Need to Know?
Bellafill is composed of about 80 percent bovine collagen and 20 percent PMMA microspheres. When injected into the skin, Bellafill immediately restores lost volume and spurs the production of collagen, the protein that gives skin its youthful elasticity. The PMMA microspheres spread to form a network around which the new collagen can develop. Meanwhile, Bellafill incorporates a numbing agent called lidocaine to ensure your comfort during treatment.
How Will I Look & Feel Afterwards?
Bellafill is injected into the skin in target areas with an ultrafine needle. The treatment immediately adds volume and plumps the skin to smooth away wrinkles and folds and fill in acne scars.
What Else do I Need to Know?
Bellafill is a simple, in-office treatment with little to no downtime. After treatment, you can immediately return to your normal daily activities. As with any injectable dermal filler, temporary mild swelling and redness may occur at the treatment site. Bruising is normally mild and lasts 3 to 7 days. Other possible side effects are soreness, tenderness, and itching.
