Bellafill treatmentis a facial filler meant to treat smile lines and certain types of acne scars. While there are many dermal fillers on the market that treat fine lines and wrinkles, the results are temporary and require follow-up treatments to maintain results. Bellafill is different. It contains ingredients that add instant volume that lasts. What’s more, Bellafill is the only FDA-approved dermal filler on the market for treating acne scars and the most effective and long-term dermal filler currently available. Made with a combination of two distinct components (bovine collagen and PMMA microspheres), Bellafill has the ability to support your body’s collagen production over time.
How Bellafill® Works Bellafill treatment is a two-part process. The bovine collagen initially provides volume while smoothing out scars, and then the PMMA microspheres (a proven substance that has been used in medical implants for years) stimulate the body to produce more collagen gradually over time, essentially laying the foundation for long-term smoothness.
The Bellafill® Procedure Bellafill is injected with a tiny needle to make injections as inconspicuous and comfortable as possible. Your doctor may provide you with a topical anesthetic to relieve any discomfort, but because Bellafill already contains the numbing agent lidocaine, a topical treatment may not be necessary. The duration of the procedure depends on how many injections you have, but it only take a few minutes to administer the Bellafill. As with other injectable treatments, there are potential side effects including redness, bruising and swelling, which generally goes away within 24 hours. You will be able to see improved volume and fullness immediately following the procedure. The PMMA microspheres then get to work to create a foundation for your skin’s natural collagen, a process that will continue over the next several months. The bottom line: immediate results with long-lasting effects.
