Wrinkles, sunken cheeks, acne scars, and laugh lines are common and unwanted signs of aging. But they don’t have to be.
The collagen-based filler called Bellafil can remedy these skin flaws, with results that last up to five years.
Michael Paltiel, MD, and Zina Goldvekht, PA-C, of Adult and Pediatric Dermatology in the Forest Hills neighborhood of Queens, New York, can attest to the fantastic results of Bellafill.
Here they break down the benefits of this increasingly popular treatment.
Bellafill is partially a collagen-based filler, a natural protein that helps your skin’s tightness and elasticity. It’s one of the longest-lasting and most effective dermal fillers since the results or correction can last up to five years.
Bellafill is comprised of 20% PMMA (polymethyl methacrylate) microspheres, which your body accepts by gradually building more collagen around them. This helps achieve natural-looking and long-lasting results.
Effects of Bellafill
Bellafill has many benefits, including eliminating unwanted wrinkles and scars, reconstructing facial deformities, restoring lost facial volume due to age, decreasing lower shadowed eyelids, and fixing laugh and smile lines.
The results of Bellafill are immediate, and most patients report extreme satisfaction with their results. Because the results can last up to five years, you won’t have to schedule any follow-up appointments immediately, but you might need follow-up treatments depending on your volume loss.
How it works
Bellafill is administered with a small needle that contains an anesthetic. Before the injection, a numbing cream is applied. This should help ease any discomfort during the procedure, though most patients don’t report any.
The filler erases acne scars and wrinkles when injected by lifting hollow contours in your face. It’s normal to have mild bruises for up to a week after the procedure. These bruises can be hidden with makeup, however. There is no recovery time after your treatment; you can immediately resume your activities.
Most patients have between one to three injection procedures. This, however, depends on your appearance goals. Our doctors create a customized treatment plan based on your aesthetic goals and the severity of your issue.
