Skin Rejuvenation Series: Bellafill®

Posted on Friday, March 11th, 2016 by Douglas Stevens

bellafillContinuing with our series on Skin Rejuvenation, we’ll discuss one of our favorite non -surgical treatments – volumization with Bellafill®.  To call Bellafill® a filler is really an injustice as this unique injectable capable of so much more than just filling in lines.  Bellafill® re-volumizes the face restoring the shape and softness of facial features associated with youth and vitality.  It is the only filler FDA approved with studies demonstrating both its effectiveness and safety for a full five years.   Let’s discuss what Bellafill® is, how it works and why Bellafill® might be the right choice for you.

What is it?

Bellafill® is a combination of collagen and PMMA microspheres (a well known bio-compatible polymer).  Collagen has been around for a long time and looks good but lasts only 2-6 months.  In this case, the collagen is used to uniformly distribute the PMMA microspheres which stimulate your body to make collagen.  It is this response that gives you results that last five years.  As the injected collagen goes away it is replaced with the collagen that your body makes in response to the PMMA microsphere portion of the Bellafill®.  New collagen results in the healthy glowing appearance of the skin following injection with Bellafill®.

Treatment with Bellafill® gives results that are apparent immediately allowing Dr. Stevens to literally sculpt the face.  Dr. Stevens is a top 1% injector of Bellafill® in the country, the premiere injector of Bellafill® in Naples and trains other physicians in the use of this unique material for facial volumization.

Having Bellafill Treatment

In the initial consultation, Dr. Stevens will use digital images and discuss with you the loss of volume in the temple, below the eyes, cheeks and pre jowl regions and how Bellafill® can treat each area of concern.  A skin test is placed and if there is no reaction over 2-4 weeks then the first treatment is performed.  A follow up consultation with photos is performed 4 weeks later to determine if further treatment is required.  Typically, Dr. Stevens likes to see patients once per year after ideal volumization is obtained.

Why Bellafill is The Right Choice

No other injectable can match the longevity and safety of Bellafill® as proven in clinical studies. As a top injector of Bellafill® in the nation, Dr. Stevens has the experience to give you the best results possible using this exciting new technology.
