Bellafill® is an injectable cosmetic treatment that is meant to add volume, as well as reduce wrinkles, fine lines and folds in the facial area. It’s a non-surgical procedure that falls under the category of dermal fillers. If you’re looking to return lost fullness and suppleness to your face, this convenient option may be one you wish to consider.
The active ingredient in Bellafill® is hyaluronic acid (HA). This natural substance within the body aids in providing the fullness and glow to young, healthy skin. An advantage to using HA is that no allergy tests are needed prior to your procedure because it’s an organic substance, not one that has been synthetically produced. Hyaluronic acid is lost with age. With Bellafill®, a gel substance containing HA is injected deep into the skin’s layers in order to replace lost levels of the substance and add volume. Depressions within the skin are instantly filled in, giving your skin a smooth and plump appearance. Your skin will be rejuvenated and glowing with little discomfort.
Along with HA, collagen is also injected into the facial layers. This natural material helps to stimulate the skin’s natural fullness and elasticity. The unique gel formula of Bellafill® works immediately to fill in lines, wrinkles and folds. It’s great for the long, deep folds along each side of the nose. These are known as nasolabial folds. You’ll see the results right away. In addition, the collagen within the formula’s microspheres stimulates the production of new collagen and helps to build a strong foundation within the skin’s structure in order to provide long-lasting results. Plus, the look is natural and fresh, unlike some surgical cosmetic options.
What to Expect
Lidocaine, a topical anesthetic, is another ingredient found in Bellafill®. This addition means there is typically no need for an additional numbing agent to be used during your procedure. Our practitioner simply injects the Bellafill® gel into the lines that are targeted for treatment. Your session will be brief and can be conducted in the comfort of our office. There should be very little discomfort, and you can return to most all of your regular daily activities immediately.
