Dermal fillers have long been able to promote the production of collagen and elastin, giving you a youthful, refreshed appearance. Many of these injectables offer great results, but may need to be repeated after just a few months. Bellafill is a revolutionary dermal filler we offer at JUVA Skin & Laser Center which is proven to provide immediate results that last up to five years without the need for repeat treatments.
How Does Bellafill Work?
The Bellafill dermal filler is FDA-approved to get rid of or reduce the appearance of your nasolabial fold—“smile lines”. Bellafill recreates the firm support provided by younger skin through stimulating the natural production of more collagen. This injectable can also be used to treat atrophic acne scars along your cheeks.
Bellafill gives instantaneous results by injecting collagen to add volume and lift the skin to smoothe facial wrinkles. This injectable contains 0.3% of Lidocaine in order to offer a comfortable treatment. Polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) microspheres are also contained within Bellafill. These microspheres thicken to help your skin rebuild a firm structure. Bellafill gives long-lasting results as the PMMA creates a stronger base to further support the production of collagen.
Your Bellafill treatment begins with a skin assessment and skin test to ensure your eligibility and prevent any potential adverse reactions to Lidocaine or collagen. Once our dermatologist has determined that Bellafill is right for you, we will schedule your session. Bellafill treatments take minimal time, and you can return to your normal activities immediately afterward.
Candidates for Bellafill must:
· Be at least 21 years old.
· Have facial wrinkles.
· Have moderate to severe facial acne scarring on the cheeks.
Is Bellafill Safe?
Bellafill has been FDA-approved since 2006 to treat facial wrinkles. A Bellafill study was conducted over the span of 6 years, which is the longest prospective study ever done for a dermal filler. The Bellafill study involved 23 treatment centers and 1,008 patients. There was a satisfaction rate of 83% in Bellafill patients 5 years after their treatment session. The results of this study were astounding and left 90% of physicians agreeing that the satisfaction level of Bellafill users was “unprecedented.”
The Benefits of Bellafill
Bellafill raises the bar for other dermal fillers as far as immediate and long-term results. By far the best advantage to Bellafill over other dermal fillers is the length of time your results last—up to 5 years, but there are many other benefits including:
- Instant, visible results
- Stimulates the recreation of the natural skin structure
- Provides rejuvenated, beautiful skin
- Only dermal filler to undergo vigorous study for post-injection approval over 6 years
