Give Those Smile Lines Something to Frown About — Bellafill
- Posted on: Jul 15 2017
There are some injectables in the aesthetic world that fit right in. For instance, Botox, the king of the aesthetic world, only lasts around four months in most people. In other fillers, six months is a good duration.
But there is one filler out to break that mold — Bellafill®. Bellafill® delivers results that last up to five years. Whoa. That’s longer than most tech startups survive! We utilize Bellafill® for our patients at Northcoast Laser Cosmetics.
What is Bellafill®?
Bellafill® is a synthetic dermal filler. It is FDA approved for the correction of nasolabial folds, colloquially known as smile lines, and the correction of moderate to severe atrophic, facial acne scars on the cheeks.
How does Bellafill® work?
Bellafill® works in two ways. It has bovine collagen in the filler, along with polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) microspheres. The collagen gets to work first, immediately adding volume to the skin to lift and fill smile lines.
Then come the effects from the PMMA microspheres. Once injected along with the collagen, the PMMA microspheres remain in place, and they create a matrix that supports new collagen production in your skin. So, in addition to the filling aspect from the injected collagen Bellafill® also stimulates your body to create new collagen, which rejuvenates and fills the skin for years.
How long does it last?
Bellafill® is the king when it comes to dermal filler endurance. It’s easy to doubt the longevity of this filler, but the FDA has approved Bellafill® and verifies its results with acne scars and nasolabial folds for five years. Studies show 83% patient satisfaction with Bellafill after five years. Also, 91% of people who’ve had Bellafill injections would recommend them to a friend.
