As you age, collagen decreases and can result in sagging skin, wrinkles, and a host of other issues that can make you look and feel older. Fortunately, there are new procedures and treatments available that are non-invasive, safe, and very effective in reducing these signs of aging and restoring your skin to a more youthful appearance. One of these treatments is called Bellafill. The next level of dermal fillers, Bellafill injections can last up to five years and take only minutes to perform. Do you want to know if Bellafill is right for you? Here is all the information you need to make a decision!

What is Bellafill?

Bellafill is a dermal filler that not only fills lines, wrinkles,  and scars but also stimulates the growth of collagen. Comprised of tiny microspheres of polymethyl methacrylate suspended in a smooth collagen gel, Bellafill instantly reduces the look of lines and wrinkles after it’s injected. As time progresses, your body will use the microspheres to build more of its own collagen, forming a foundation that gives you natural volume. This not only reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles, but it also creates firmer, smoother skin and a healthy, youthful lift. The microspheres used in Bellafill have been safely used in medical devices and implants for more than 65 years. When used to fill lines and wrinkles, the results of Bellafill can last for up to five years. When used to reduce the signs of acne scars, the results typically last twelve months.

What Does the Bellafill Procedure Look Like?

The Bellafill injection procedure is very similar to that of other dermal fillers as well as the Botox® procedure. You can come into the office over your lunch break or while you’re out running errands. The mostly painless injections typically take less than 20 minutes, and you can return to your normal schedule and activities immediately after. Some may experience redness or irritation after their injections, but this is usually minor and will resolve within a day or two. Dr. Wilson and Sarah normally suggest Bellafill patients avoid strenuous activity for a day or two after injections.

Is Bellafill Right for Me?

Deciding whether Bellafill is right for you is a very personal decision. When trying to decide whether or not you want to undergo the treatment, consider the following: Bellafill has been shown to work well for both females and males with a variety of skin types to increase volume, reduce the sign of lines and wrinkles, and to reduce acne scarring. With little to no recovery time and very few possible side effects, Bellafill is a safe and non-invasive way to achieve a more youthful appearance. As opposed to Botox® or other dermal fillers that may last a year or less, Bellafill can last up to five years. This eliminates the need for frequent injections.

There are, however, some who are not a good candidate for Bellafill. These include those who have a history of severe allergies, those who are allergic to lidocaine, those with a bleeding disorder, or those who have excessive scarring. It’s also not appropriate for those who are under 21 years of age.
