You cannot stop the natural aging process, no matter how hard you try. The years fly by and leave their mark on your skin and body. The most noticeable signs of aging appear on your face. No matter how diligent you are about protecting your skin, you are going to start to see fine lines and wrinkles. Smile lines can be especially troubling as they become carved more deeply into your skin over time. Fortunately, you have a solution. Bellafill® is a cosmetic alternative that can help you to look and feel younger again.
What is Bellafill®?
Bellafill® is a type of dermal filler that is injected into the skin. It contains collagen, the substance that naturally maintains the structure of your skin, and polymethylmethacrylate microspheres referred to as PMMA. These microspheres are made from a thermal plastic. When combined in Bellafill®, this dermal filler can smooth out smile lines, creating a support system for your skin. The body’s natural collagen production will get a boost after the procedure. You can expect results that will last and you will see the immediate effects of Bellafill® when your procedure is done.
What to Expect During the Procedure
Bellafill® is administered on an outpatient basis and is considered noninvasive. It should take no more than a half hour as the dermal filler is injected below your smile lines, yet above the layer of fat in your skin. Bellafill® is combined with lidocaine to reduce pain during your injections. You’ll have an added advantage when you choose Bellafill® in that it is not absorbed into your body. Unlike other dermal fillers that will require return treatments, your results will last.
What is the Recovery Period for a Bellafill® Treatment?
After you have had Bellafill® injections, you do not have to have any downtime. You’ll have no restrictions and can return to your normal routine. You’ll immediately notice the difference in the appearance of your smile lines as they improve dramatically. As with any filler, slight swelling, minor redness, and mild bruising may result. All of these effects should go away within a week after treatment.
Are You a Candidate for Bellafill®?
Clinical trials have proven that Bellafill® is an effective solution for men and women with various skin types. Before you are given Bellafill® injections, your doctor will perform a skin test to ensure that you will not have a reaction. If you have a bleeding disorder, a skin disorder, severe allergies, or you are prone to scarring, Bellafill® may not be the solution for you.
