What is Bellafill® and what Makes it Unique?
Bellafill® is a safe, long lasting collagen filler. The collagen in Bellafill® provides immediate volume and lift while the PMMA microspheres remain in place and create a matrix that supports collagen production in your skin for lasting improvement. Bellafill® isn’t just an exceptional cosmetic treatment option. It was proven safe through 5 years for the correction of nasolabial folds or smile lines in the largest and longest prospective dermal filler study ever completed.
Is Bellafill® Right For Me?
Treatment with Bellafill® is very similar to treatment with conventional fillers. Bellafill® immediately adds volume to wrinkles known as smile lines for a smoother, more youthful appearance. In addition, Bellafill® re-creates the firm structure of younger-looking skin by supporting production of your body’s own collagen. Bellafill® requires a skin test to identify those patients who may have an allergy to lidocaine or bovine collagen.
Am I a Candidate for Bellafill®?
Repeated movement of the facial skin may create wrinkles. These types of wrinkles are “dynamic.” Age is a factor, but repeated facial movements, such as frowning or squinting, can also create lines, which means they may develop even in younger adults. These wrinkles are not candidates for Bellafill® treatment.
Over time, we lose volume in our faces, increasing the chances for wrinkles and folds to appear. The fat pads in our cheeks may slide downward toward the mouth, which can cause the skin to wrinkle or fold, creating the “smile lines” from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds). Bellafill® effectively addresses volume loss to reverse the signs of aging.
