In case you haven’t observed, dermal filler treatments have seen a significant rise in popularity over the past couple of years – a trend ignited by celebrities now seems like a more viable and reasonable option for anyone who’s looking to diminish facial lines and restore volume and fullness in the face.
If you are considering taking the plunge, there’s more to dermal fillers than you might think. La Bella Cosmetic Surgery has three different types of dermal fillers, and each offers a distinct look.
The kind of dermal filler treatment we’ll be discussing here is the Bellafill filler.
What is the Bellafill Lip Filler?
Bellafill is an FDA-approved dermal filler used for permanent implantation into the skin to enhance smile lines or nasolabial folds. It is appropriate for both men and women. Unlike many other lip fillers that are absorbed and demand reinjection, Bellafill is a non-resorbable filler.
Bellafill is also used to correct normal to severe facial acne cars near the mouth in patients that are 21+.
Benefits & Features
Bellafill’s small, polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) microspheres are suspended within a line of smooth collagen gel. Once treated, the collagen gel instantly reduces the presence of smile lines.
After some time, your body utilizes the microspheres in Bellafill to generate a “scaffold” based on which your natural collagen can be created. Moreover, this collagen develops a foundation that reduces wrinkles – giving you natural-looking results that feel smooth and soft for up to five years.
How Does it Work?
At La Bella Cosmetic, the patient is awake during the entire procedure, and the treatment is done under topical lidocaine.
As mentioned in the beginning, Bellafill features PMMA and a bovine collagen solution, vital for creating small balls called microspheres. Each injection contains a tiny amount of lidocaine to make sure you are comfortable.
When Bellafill is transferred to your skin, the microspheres remain intact, and your body absorbs the collagen.
Here’s a Bellafill before and after to better understand how it works and what it does.
Targeted Areas in the Bellafill Treatment not only to reduce scars
Initially, Bellafill was approved for the curing of nasolabial folds and particular scars on the cheeks. However, it offers several off-label benefits. It is now commonly used for:
- Correcting minor to moderate deviations and bumps
- Contouring the cheeks and chin and nose
- Fades acne scars by adding volume to them
- Creates a lasting improvement in your skin
Bellafill is also used for treating deep facial wrinkles and lines and sagging or wrinkled earlobes.
