Are you on the hunt for an aesthetic treatment to smoothen out your smile lines and improve the appearance of acne scars?
Look no further. Because here at Restore Center for Aesthetics in Munster, IN, we are thrilled to offer Bellafill® – a new addition to the collagen fillers that can help you achieve these specific skincare goals.
What Is Bellafill®?
Bellafill® is a collagen-based, FDA-approved dermal filler injected into the face to smooth deep smile lines or indented acne scarring.
Formulated using microspheres of polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA), Bellafill® is proven effective in treating acne scars. Additionally, these microspheres can stay under your skin to stimulate your body’s natural collagen production for up to 5 years.
Like other collagen fillers, Bellafill® is injected under the dermis to address volume loss, lines, and scars.
What Are the Benefits of Bellafill®?
Bellafill® results feel and look natural because it stimulates your body to make its own tissue to restore any volume loss caused by aging and other factors.
As such, it provides the following benefits:
- Reduced fine lines and wrinkles;
- Softened nasolabial folds (smile lines);
- Smoother skin;
- Diminished acne scarring; and
- Long-lasting results.
Moreover, collagen fillers like Bellafill® continue to improve for 3-6 months as new collagen forms in your body. Moreover, its results can last up to 5 years, making it a good skincare investment for those in it for the long game.
Who Is An Ideal Candidate for Bellafill®?
The best candidates for a Bellafill® dermal filler are the following patients:
- Healthy adults above 21;
- Those experiencing a lot of facial volume loss;
- Those who want results that will last for years;
- Those struggling with deep scars from cysts or other larger kinds of acne; and/or
- Those who have tried other fillers but prefer a different kind of formula.
Bellafill® is an excellent solution if you want to address these concerns and leave behind a smoother skin appearance.
What Happens During a Bellafill® Procedure?
Before coming in for your Bellafill® procedure, you’ll need to have a consultation with your provider, during which they will perform a skin test up to 30 days in advance to rule out any bovine allergies.
Your injector will also discuss the treatment, expected results, aftercare reminders, among other important matters.
Once finishing the preliminary requirements, your provider will start by identifying and mapping out the treatment areas. Bellafill® contains a local anesthetic to ensure a quick and painless experience throughout the procedure.
Based on your personalized treatment plan, the filler will be injected under the dermis using a needle or cannula (a very thin tube) to minimize bruising. After that, you’ll apply an ice pack to the treated area to reduce swelling and discomfort.
What Should You Expect After the Treatment?
It’s normal to experience minimal swelling or bruising after the procedure – this will resolve on its own, and you’ll be able to cover it up with makeup.
Generally speaking, you can resume most of your regular activities, but it’s best to avoid any intense workouts, saunas, hot tubs, and facials for a few days for your skin to recover faster.
