Bellafill® is an injectable filler that’s FDA approved to treat nasolabial folds. These folds, sometimes called “smile lines,” extend from the nose to the corners of the mouth. Bellafill® provides instant smoothness, with long-lasting results: In the longest and largest study ever conducted on dermal fillers, Bellafill® was proven to be effective through five years. That means that you can enjoy your results for much longer than you would with hyaluronic acid-based fillers.
A skin test will need to be done at your consultation to make sure you will have no allergic reactions to this long-lasting filler. The skin test is just the Bovine collagen. The Bovine collagen is the vehicle to bring the Polymethacrylate Methacrylate(PMMA) to the area needed. Bovine collagen will last about three months after that the PMMA will start to build collagen.
After 28 days and no reaction to your bovine collagen skin test, your treatment can begin.
Bellafill® has two main components:
- Smooth collagen gel (80%) forms the base of Bellafill, creating smooth, supple volume beneath the surface of the nasolabial folds.
- Polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) microspheres (20%) are suspended within the collagen gel. These form a sturdy scaffold where your own natural collagen grows.
Thanks to its two innovative components, Bellafill® creates instant results that you can enjoy as soon as you leave the office. As the original collagen gel fades away, your body naturally replaces it with your own collagen around the microspheres, for unparalleled long-term smoothness.
Actual client, real results!
Eileen’s Experience Counts:
Eileen uses Bellafill® as a long-term collagen stimulant to reverse the signs of aging. Unlike the typical fillers that last only months, Bellafill® can last up to five years for some patients. Eileen was on the initial nursing advisory board for Bellafill® in 2007 and has over ten years of experience with this product. Before using Bellafill®, each patient must have a skin test to ensure they are not sensitive or allergic to the product. Eileen recommends that new patients make a complimentary consultation appointment to discuss the different treatment options and results that can be achieved with each dermal filler.
