1. Bellafill Contains Collagen and PMMA Microspheres, Not Hyaluronic Acid
Most dermal fillers are made with hyaluronic acid, a naturally found component in your skin that binds to moisture and keeps skin supple. Hyaluronic acid fillers, such as Restylane, add instant volume to the tissues but require maintenance treatments as the body absorbs hyaluronic acid over time. Bellafill is formulated with bovine collagen and polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) microspheres. Collagen is referred to as the “fountain of youth” protein in young skin, and your body creates less as you age starting in your 20s. Bellafill uses bovine collagen to provide immediate wrinkle correction and pushes your body to produce more of the anti-aging compound.
PMMA microspheres suspended in the collagen gel of Bellafill provide a follow-up effect. While collagen smooths smile lines, PMMA develops building blocks or scaffolding for your body to fill in with natural collagen.
2. Bellafill Offers Treatment for Challenging Cosmetic Concerns
Bellafill can treat smile lines, acne scars and other skin concerns that are often challenging to treat long-term. The collagen gel and PMMA structure also benefit delicate areas of the face, such as dark circles under the eyes and tear troughs. Dr. Stevens is known for his meticulous approach to facial plastic surgery and cosmetic treatments and customizes Bellafill treatments to fit each patient’s goals. Acne scars are notoriously difficult to treat, and Bellafill offers meaningful results that last much longer than other dermal fillers.
3. Bellafill Provides Longer-Lasting Results
Perhaps the best benefit of Bellafill is its longevity. While other injectables last mere months, Bellafill is a semi-permanent injectable treatment. The body fills in the scaffolding created by PMMA microspheres with new collagen, providing enduring results. Bellafill results may last up to five years for specific lines and wrinkles, such as nasolabial folds, and one year for acne scarring.
