What Makes Bellafill Different than Other Injectable Fillers?
Approved by the FDA to be safe and effective for up to five years, Bellafill is the only dermal filler that stimulates new collagen growth to help you maintain a more youthful appearance over time. Most advanced dermal fillers today are composed of hyaluronic acid, a naturally-occurring substance that is reabsorbed into the body over a period of approximately six months to one or two years.
Long Lasting Results with Bellafill: Up to Five Years or More
Bellafill is a smooth, collagen-based injectable filler containing microspheres made of polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA), a biocompatible material that has been safely used in medical implants for more than half a century. Bellafill injections can correct the signs of aging for up to five years or more with optimal treatment, while most hyaluronic acid fillers only last for six months to a year, or a few with results that last up to two years. This makes Bellafill a game-changer and the anti-aging treatment of choice for many men and women who want to maintain a more youthful appearance without having frequent injections.
A cannula is a thin tube used for inserting into a vein or body cavity to administer medicine, drain off fluid, or insert a surgical instrument. This is one of the latest advancements in cosmetic procedures that Dr. Kaado is very familiar with.
Some of the best results in dermal fillers are from using cannulas as opposed to needles with some of the advantages being:
- Because cannulas release the filler in a fan-like pattern and are generally longer than needles, you have a faster and less painful treatment.
- As cannulas are blunt, they are less likely to accidentally pierce a vein or artery
- Due to less disturbance caused to the tissue, patients recover in less time than they would if using a needle.
How Does Bellafill Work?
The collagen in Bellafill provides volume and lift, for soft, natural-looking results that are visible immediately after treatment. As the collagen is reabsorbed by the body over time, the PMMA microspheres are left behind to create a supportive base that stimulates natural collagen production for smoother-looking skin in the years to come.
PMMA microspheres in Bellafill are non-resorbable – they are not absorbed or metabolized by the body. The microspheres stimulate the body to produce collagen to encapsulate them. The result is that wrinkles and folds are filled in with approximately 20% PMMA microspheres and 80% natural collagen.
What Can I Expect with Bellafill Treatment?
As Bellafill contains bovine collagen, you will need a simple allergy skin test in advance of treatment. A Bellafill treatment session typically takes less than 30 minutes. You may need two treatment sessions spaced three to six weeks apart to achieve optimal results.
Side effects are minimal with Bellafill injections. You may experience slight swelling, redness, and sensitivity at the injection sites after treatment. These symptoms should resolve within a few days. Your results will be visible immediately with smoother, younger-looking skin, while natural collagen production stimulated by Bellafill microspheres will help you maintain a more youthful appearance for up to five years or longer.
What Aesthetic Issues Can Be Treated with Bellafill?
As the only dermal filler that has been FDA-approved for long-term results (up to five years) Bellafill has long-lasting anti-aging benefits. Injected under the skin, Bellafill immediately adds volume with collagen to smooth lines and wrinkles, and when the collagen is absorbed, it stimulates your own natural collagen production for smoother, tighter, firmer skin over time.
Bellafill treatment can be used to:
- Smooth nasolabial folds (deep creases around the nose and mouth) and marionette lines (creases running from the mouth corners along the sides of the chin) by plumping up the skin to create a smoother, younger, wrinkle-free look
- Recontour the jawline for a more defined appearance
- Add volume to the midface region to lift sunken cheeks or emphasize the cheekbones
- Replace lost volume in temple areas that have become sunken with aging
