As we age, our skin naturally loses its youthful firmness and natural elasticity. For some, this process may result in wrinkles, acne scars, and volume loss, leading to a loss of self-confidence and overall satisfaction with our appearance. Thankfully, advancements in cosmetic dermatology have led to a variety of treatments designed to restore and rejuvenate skin. Today, we'll be focusing on one such treatment, Bellafill, produced by Suneva Medical.
What is Bellafill?
Bellafill is a unique, long-lasting dermal filler. Unlike many other fillers that provide temporary results, Bellafill is designed to deliver improvements for up to five years. Its two main components are a smooth collagen gel and polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) microspheres.
The collagen gel works immediately upon injection, filling in wrinkles and acne scars, providing an immediate volume and lift. Over time, your body naturally metabolizes the collagen gel, but the PMMA microspheres remain, acting as a support matrix and stimulating your body's own collagen production. This helps maintain the initial improvement and provides a lasting, natural-looking result.
Who is a Good Candidate for Bellafill?
Bellafill can be used in various circumstances. It can help those who are unhappy with the appearance of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds. It is also the only dermal filler FDA approved for the correction of moderate to severe, atrophic, distensible facial acne scars on the cheek in patients over the age of 21 years.
What to Expect During a Bellafill Treatment?
During a Bellafill treatment, the product is injected beneath the skin in your problem areas. The treatment is usually well-tolerated, but a local anesthetic may be used to enhance comfort. The entire process takes about 15-60 minutes, depending on the extent of the area being treated.
Bellafill, with its long-lasting results, can be a valuable tool for individuals looking to combat signs of aging or improve the appearance of acne scars. As with any cosmetic procedure, it's essential to consult with Sonia Anderson, RN at Angelic Medispa who is experienced in Bellafill injections to ensure it is the right treatment for you.
