Enjoy Up To 5 Years of Facial Volume and Anti-Aging Results With Bellafill®Posted on Thursday, March 2nd, 2023 by Douglas M. Stevens, MD
Most dermal fillers require annual or more frequent touch-ups. Bellafill® not only takes years off your face but continues to do so for the next five years and beyond! Stevens Facial Plastic & Laser Center offers Bellafill® and other services to keep you looking youthful longer. Dr. Douglas Stevens is a Bella Diamond provider and performs all injectable treatments himself.
How Bellafill® Works
As we age, collagen growth declines. Bellafill® encourages collagen development so your skin remains rejuvenated and soft.
By stimulating collagen growth, the protein responsible for sustaining smooth, firm skin, Bellafill® can help maintain a youthful look for years to come. The injectable contains polymethyl methacrylate microspheres (PMMA) within a smooth collagen gel base. These microspheres eventually form a “scaffold” for developing natural collagen. This collagen adds volume to lines and wrinkles, reducing their appearance.
Bellafill® is approved for the treatment of:
- Moderate to severe acne scars
- Nasolabial folds
- Marionette lines
- Mid-face volume loss
- Undereye bags
Bellafill® is FDA-approved to smooth smile lines for up to five years. No other facial filler has data indicating it lasts that long.
How Bellafill® Compares
Bellafill® lasts far longer than any other injectables or dermal fillers on the market. While you can expect to maintain the results from Bellafill® for up to five years, here is how long other products last before requiring a touch-up:
- Juvéderm: Juvéderm requires maintenance or touch-up treatments every 12 months, depending on the treatment area. Lip enhancement with Juvéderm may last as little as six to 12 months, but chin augmentation with the injectable may last up to two years.
- Restylane:This dermal filler offers results for up to 18 months for nasolabial folds but may last just six months for lip augmentation, hand rejuvenation and other areas. Restylane in the cheeks may last up to 12 months.
- Revanesse: On average, Revanesse Versa treatments last six to 12 months, depending on the treatment area. Dr. Stevens may recommend repeating treatments every nine months.
Does Bellafill® Really Last Five Years?
The idea that a dermal filler provides results for up to five years sounds like it’s too good to be true. In fact, it’s absolutely true, and most patients enjoy their results for up to 60 months without a touch-up. That standard is based on rigorous clinical trials and patient experience.
Why does it last so much longer? Bellafill® contains two key ingredients. The collagen gel, in conjunction with the PMMA microspheres, work to sustain the effects for a substantial period.
There’s no pain involved with Bellafill® injections, and no downtime. After your appointment, you are free to resume your normal activities. Just avoid strenuous exercise for 72 hours and don’t drink alcohol for 24 hours. Expect to see results in about a week — and for the next five years!
