Dr. Chang is always on the lookout for the best non-surgical aesthetic treatments to offer her patients. We are excited to announce one of our latest offerings, a revolutionary dermal filler specifically designed to treat smile lines and acne scars. Call us today at 619-280-1609 and ask about Bellafill®.
What is Bellafill®?
A new offering at Beatitude Aesthetic Medicine and Acne Center, Bellafill® is a dermal filler comprised of 80% bovine collagen and 20% PMMA spheres. The collagen provides instant results while the PMMA spheres stimulate your body’s collagen production (takes about 8 weeks) for sustained results. Although Bellafill®, formerly known as Artefill, has been available since 2007, we only recently started offering it here. Dr. Chang is committed to patient safety and wanted to ensure that this “permanent” option would provide her patients with the best and safest benefit. After carefully reviewing the safety studies and seeing this product in action over the course of several years, Dr. Chang is now proud to offer it to her own patients (and would even feel comfortable using it herself).
Dermal fillers provide stunning and long-lasting results, but when compared with other top fillers, Bellafill® by far outlasts the others. Juvederm works for about 6-8 months per treatment and Juvederm Voluma lasts about 2 years. The unique properties of Bellafill® help this filler to last up to 5 years, much longer than any other filler option available.
Perfect for Hard to Fill Areas
Acne scars are notoriously difficult to treat. We typically use a series of laser treatments to address the problem. Hyaluronic acid fillers (like Juvederm) can be used, but they just aren’t that effective and require regular retreatment. Bellafill® is different. It stimulates collagen production at the site of the scars, filling them in. With just 2 treatments (done about 8 weeks apart) we can dramatically improve the appearance of many types of acne scars. Bellafill® also works well around the eyes and for lines around the mouth. Bellafill® is known for its smooth, natural looking results.
Safe and Effective
Bellafill® is safe and effective. You’ll see results as soon as the treatment is complete with continued improvement in the coming weeks and months. Collagen has been long used as a dermal filler (and is naturally produced by your body) and PMMA microspheres have been used as a cataract treatment for over 60 years. Dr. Chang is proud to offer this safe and effective treatment to her patients.
