Getting older comes with many unforgettable experiences and a certain wisdom that you can’t get any other way. But it also comes with wrinkles and bags that most people would rather do without.
Although nobody relishes the natural aging process, it’s important to remember that you’re not completely powerless over it. At Dream Med Spa and Laser Center in Plainfield, IL, we help men and women look and feel their best with our wide selection of cosmetic services.
One of the most popular treatments to combat signs of aging is a simple injectable treatment known as Bellafill. Keep reading to learn more about this anti-aging treatment and what it can do for you.
What Is Bellafill?
Bellafill is an FDA-approved dermal filler that can treat various signs of aging in men and women, including the following:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Thinning lips
- Overall volume loss in the face
- Under-eye bags
This dermal filler contains a unique blend of lidocaine, polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) microspheres, and natural collagen to provide both fast and long-lasting results.
How Does Bellafill Work?
Bellafill works a little differently than the average dermal filler that uses hyaluronic acid to plump up specific areas. Instead, Bellafill uses natural collagen to instantly replace collagen that has been lost and PMMA microspheres to stimulate ongoing collagen production.
Fight the Effects of Aging with Bellafill
Whether you are in your 30s and just beginning to experience moderate signs of aging, or you’re in your 60s and have advanced signs of aging, Bellafill can help restore and refresh your skin. Read on to find out how.
Bellafill for Wrinkles
Bellafill is probably best known for its wrinkle-erasing abilities. As you get older, your nasolabial folds, or smile lines, become more pronounced and can create the illusion of droopiness. Smoothing out these deep creases can restore a brighter and more youthful appearance.
Bellafill for Lips
Bellafill for lips can help you achieve the soft and supple pout you’re looking for. Whether you have naturally thin lips or they have become thinner with age, Bellafill can help plump them up to create a more visually pleasing shape and contour.
Bellafill for Face Contouring
As you age, you lose volume not only in your lips but also in your cheeks. This volume loss can cause your skin to sag and give your face a hollow look.
Bellafill can be used to combat volume loss and create fuller cheeks, smoother skin, and an overall revitalized appearance. It can also be used to create a more defined chin and jawline.
Bellafill Under Eyes
Under-eye bags seem nearly inevitable in today’s never-ending grind. But that doesn’t mean you’re stuck with the unwanted extra baggage. Injections of Bellafill under eyes are one of the best ways to address the root cause of eye bags — volume and collagen loss.
Bellafill can treat under-eye bags by minimizing the appearance of dark circles, sagging skin, and puffiness in favor of a smooth and well-rested visage.
Bellafill for Acne Scars
If acne scars from your teenage years still dimple your face, Bellafill may be able to fill in the gaps to create a smooth and refined look.
When injected to treat scarring, the natural collagen in Bellafill temporarily adds volume to the area to make it less noticeable, but the real magic happens as the PMMA microspheres stimulate your body’s collagen production.
This increase in collagen production helps your body replace the scar tissue with new, healthy skin that blends in seamlessly with the rest of the skin on your face.
Benefits of Bellafill
Besides its versatile applications, Bellafill has several benefits that make it an appealing and practical option for people looking to fade their cosmetic concerns quickly. Three of those benefits are highlighted below.
Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers typically last anywhere from three to six months, but Bellafill can last up to five years. In fact, it is the only dermal filler that has been FDA-approved to last so long. This makes it the best long-term option for most people.
Bellafill is so effective and long-lasting due to the PMMA microspheres that are packed into every dose. These microspheres are the ideal size to slip into your dermal matrix and settle in place. Once there, they slowly break down over time and stimulate collagen production.
Quick Treatment with No Downtime
Bellafill treatment consists of a series of small injections and only takes a few minutes to complete. If you’re treating just one small area — such as nasolabial folds — treatment may take as little as ten minutes. Additionally, there is no special aftercare required after getting Bellafill, and no downtime is necessary.
The results from Bellafill look very natural. And that’s because they are.
The main driving force behind Bellafill’s power is its ability to stimulate your body’s natural collagen production. The extra boost of bovine collagen helps in the short term, but in the long run, your own body will be making collagen and doing all of the hard work. This is why the results look so natural.
Who Is A Good Candidate for Bellafill?
Most adults with moderate to severe signs of aging are good candidates for Bellafill treatment. However, it’s still necessary to come in for a consultation because some conditions or medications could exclude you from being eligible for treatment — for example, if you have an allergy to bovine collagen.
