Up to now, dermal fillers have worked their wonders on a very temporary basis, a frustrating situation for patients who want to restore smooth skin and get rid of wrinkles. Going back for repeated touchups was time-consuming and expensive.
That’s why people are so excited about Bellafill, a dermal filler treatment that lasts 5 years. Patients see immediate results, and the improvements lasts for years, not months.
What Is Bellafill?
Bellafill is a dermal filler that uses a mix of bovine collagen gel, microspheres of polymethyl methacrylate, better known as PMMA, and lidocaine, an anesthetic agent. Working together, they add volume to the skin right away, lifting the skin to reduce the look of wrinkles, as well as scars.
The microspheres give the injection a layer of structure. It lets the skin look rejuvenated and full for much longer than standard injectable treatments. Patients don’t need to deal with repeated touchups.
How Does Bellafill Work?
By increasing the volume, Bellafill helps the look of lines and wrinkles to disappear. The injection adds volume to bring the affected area up to the level of the adjoining skin.
The microspheres of PMMA support the production of your skin’s own collagen, much like scaffolding on a building. These tiny beads don’t dissolve and aren’t absorbed into the body. With this type of underpinning, the collagen has something to adhere to.
The result is a multi-year, not a multi-month, solution to wrinkles and scars. Bellafill gives patients the longest-lasting results possible without surgery.
The Long-Term Wrinkle and Line Treatment
Many patients associate Bellafill with acne scars. It has received a lot of press for this type of treatment. In fact, it does the job so well that it is the only injectable approved for acne scars by the Federal Drug Administration.
Less well known is how effective Bellafill is for a variety of aging skin problems. Just look how it can restore and rejuvenate your skin:
