Laughter should make an impression on your memories, not necessarily your face, right? When most people want to smooth away smile lines and fine wrinkles around the mouth, they turn to filler rejuvenation—which works wonders, but sometimes only for about 6 to 9 months, which can make it costly to maintain.
What if, instead of just filling, you could actually restore volume long-term?
Well, now you can—with Bellafill®!
What is Bellafill®?
Bellafill® is a collagen-based dermal filler that’s especially effective in the correction of wrinkles, nasolabial folds, and acne scars. Bellafill® can also be used to treat difficult areas under the eyes and along the vermillion border (white part that outlines the lips) and lines around the mouth. Bellafill® was FDA-approved for the treatment of smile lines in 2006 and for the correction of acne scars in 2014.
Take a look below at some of the incredible benefits of Bellafill®.
PMMA (Polymathic-methacrylate miscrospheres) accounts for about 20% of Bellafill®’s ingredients. The microspheres are suspended in collagen gel, which is what gives you the instant volumizing results, and they provide the structural support for your smoother, younger skin even after the collagen is reabsorbed. In the meantime, the Bellafill® formula stimulates your own natural collagen production, giving you results that can last up to 5 years! And this isn’t just an optimistic claim: Bellafill® was involved in the world’s largest and longest dermal-filler study, involving 1,008 patients across the US.
In order to give patients instant results while the long-term effects work under the surface, Bellafill® is composed of about 80% bovine collagen, which immediately adds volume to smile lines for a smoother, more youthful appearance.
Dermal fillers might be relatively new on the cosmetic scene, but PMMA has been used in medical procedures since the 1940s due to its excellent tissue compatibility. One of its original uses was in cataract surgery.
There is no single cosmetic treatment that will be 100% satisfying to 100% of the patients who use it, but Bellafill® comes close. In a consumer survey, 91% of patients were likely to recommend Bellafill®, and in a 5-year Post Approval Study, 83% of patients reported being satisfied to very satisfied with the appearance of their smile lines at the end of the 5 years.
Great for acne scars
Bellafill® works beautifully on smile lines, and it has recently been FDA-approved to treat acne scars as well. Acne scars are notoriously difficult to treat, usually requiring a series of treatments with lasers or hyaluronic acid fillers. But with Bellafill®, typically 2 treatments are done about 8 weeks apart in order to treat acne scars, and the results can last up to 5 years.
