Bellafill® Collagen Injections
Bellafill® is an innovative type of dermal filler that is suitable for patients with smile lines and wrinkles or scars on the face. The filler provides volume and is a viable alternative to other hyaluronic acid fillers that only offer short-term results and require constant touch-ups.
Bellafill® for Smile Lines
The collagen gel in Bellafill® suspends small polymethyl methacrylate microspheres, which your body uses to create a type of scaffolding that new collagen can build upon. This foundation provides the volume needed to reduce the appearance of wrinkles to make you look younger and more vibrant. The gel is injected with fine needles underneath the nasolabial folds to reduce the depression of smile lines and to lift them.
Smile lines can add years to your appearance even at an early age. These smile lines can often sneak up on a person through the years and depending on your facial structure they may appear sooner than later. This procedure may offer the answer needed to patients that no longer wish to live with deep and extended smile lines any longer.
Bellafill® For Acne Scars
Bellafill® is indicated as a treatment for distensible, atrophic and both severe and moderate acne scars appearing on the cheeks in patients that are at least 21 years old. The treatment creates visible skin improvements by plumping up the skin to bring the scarring up to the same level as the surrounding skin area. The results appear natural and can bring a sudden boost of self-confidence to anyone that has been dealing with long-lasting acne scars.
Acne causes inflammation of the skin, which in turn diminishes the amount of collagen produced. This results in a pitted and uneven appearance, which is commonly known as an acne scar. If left untreated, these scars may last a lifetime. Bellafill® builds up a type of scaffolding underneath the scars where healthy new collagen can grow.
Acne scars often lead to an emotionally disturbing journey and often influence a person’s self-confidence and social life. The turmoil on the skin often turns into an inner turmoil that can make a person feel terribly defeated. Most people attack their acne head-on through the use of different lotions and potions with only limited success in many cases. This new treatment method offers new hope to those that are looking for a better solution.
Bellafill® Right for You?
Bellafill® requires a skin test before it can be administered to make sure that you are not allergic to one of the ingredients. People that are breastfeeding or pregnant should wait before undergoing this procedure and anyone with an allergy to bovine collagen or lidocaine should not receive this treatment.
After the administration of Bellafill® you’ll be able to return to your normal day-to-day activities immediately. Some temporary redness, bruising, pain, swelling, discolouration and itching may be experienced at the treatment site.
Bellafill® offers people with acne scars and smile lines a brand-new choice of treatment that is effective and safe with little to no downtime. During the initial consultation we will let you know whether this procedure would be the best option for you and the time and length of treatment involved based on your personal case.
