Dermal fillers make a great non-surgical alternative for patients seeking short-term anti-aging solutions. They’re quick, easy, and nearly painless. However, in most cases, traditional soft tissue fillers do not provide lasting effects. While many patients are happy with the instant results dermal fillers provide, others are looking for a longer-lasting treatment. These Hyaluronic Acid (HA) fillers naturally begin to reabsorb into the body leaving you with results that may only last 6-18 months.
At Derma-Tech Medical Spa, we’re using one of the most advanced fillers on the market to give patients an immediate lift with long-term results. It’s called Bellafill, and it’s revolutionizing the way we think about wrinkle reduction.
How Does Bellafill Work?
Bellafill is an in-office procedure that takes just a few short minutes. Your skilled aesthetician places the injectable at precise problem areas via an ultra-fine gauge needle. Bellafill is lidocaine-enhanced making treatment very comfortable throughout. There is little downtime involved with the procedure. You may experience swelling and slight tenderness at the injection site. In most cases, you can get back to your normal activities immediately.
Bellafill is comprised of a unique formula that uses actual collagen for enhanced results. Unlike HA dermal fillers, Bellafill’s advanced collagen-based microspheres aren’t naturally reabsorbed into the body. The procedure plumps skin from within filling in fine lines, wrinkles, and nasolabial folds.
The amount of time Bellafill lasts is dependent upon the area being treated as well as your natural aging process. Bellafill is commonly used to address deep-set wrinkles and folds around the mouth and nose and is also FDA approved for the treatment of acne
Bellafill procedures can last several years. Many clinical trials have shown the injectable to have a high patient satisfaction rate upwards of 5+ years. Bellafill is the ideal treatment for patients seeking a younger-looking appearance with longer-lasting results.
Is Bellafill Right for You?
Bellafill is a non-resorbable dermal filler that requires a pre-allergy test. The injectable makes a great option for patients who have tried the common HA dermal fillers but desire longer lasting results and fewer injection appointments. Our skilled injection specialist will walk you through every aspect of the procedure beforehand to ensure it’s a good fit for you.
