How Is Bellafill Different from Other Fillers?Posted on Monday, October 22nd, 2018 by Douglas M. Stevens, MD
Bellafill is a cosmetic injectable that fills areas of the face that need volume. It is specifically approved to treat deep creases around the nose and mouth as well as acne scars. Bellafill uses volumization of the cheeks, areas under the eye and the prejowl region to regain youthful softening and fullness. The improvements appear rapidly and last a very long time. Treatments can be performed quickly in an office setting, and few patients have adverse side effects.
As a “Bella Diamond” provider, a title given to only 1 percent of providers nationwide, Dr. Douglas Stevens is very well versed on the product and excited about the potential benefits for his patients. Read on as he describes what makes Bellafill distinct from other fillers.
Stimulates the Production of Your Own Collagen
Collagen is a protein that is essential to smooth, soft and youthful looking skin. The aging process causes the body to produce less collagen; and as a result, the skin can start to develop creases and folds and the face can lose volume.
Bellafill is designed to rebuild your own collagen reserves for more youthful-looking skin. The filler is formulated with synthetic microspheres of polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) suspended in purified collagen. The PMMA microspheres act as a stimulant for the body to produce its own collagen, which strengthens and supports the layers of the skin. The natural supply of collagen gradually replaces the artificial collagen in the filler.
Another quality that makes Bellafill unique is that the results last much longer than those of other fillers. Unlike other fillers that get absorbed by the body in the months following treatment, the PMMA microspheres are non-resorbable.
Bellafill is FDA approved for up to five years of improvement. This is a great solution if you do not want to have to schedule appointments every few months for repeat injections. You may actually save money with Bellafill over the long run because the results “outlive” those of its competitors by multiple years.
Choose Your Bellafill Provider Carefully
Bellafill is an extraordinary product, but its results are highly dependent on the skill of person injecting the filler. When left to the wrong hands, Bellafill treatment may not deliver the desired results.
