Laugh lines don’t have to be the first thing you see when you look in the mirror. Bellafill treatments offered by SkinMD Seattle in Seattle, WA can help smooth away those lines and restore volume to your facial features, giving you a youthful, radiant look. This treatment can also be used to fill in deep acne scars on the face. Best of all, this quick and easy treatment produces long-lasting results.
What Is Bellafill?
Bellafill is a gel-based collagen that’s injected beneath the skin. The collagen adds volume and firmness to the face, and the polymethylmethacrylate microspheres that are also part of the injection help fill in wrinkles and stimulate additional collagen production. You’ll see results as soon as your treatment is complete, and your skin will continue improving over time.
Other injectable fillers require return visits for reapplication, but this one is different because the results are long-lasting. You can enjoy your new look for up to 12 months, and sometimes longer, before having to return for additional treatment.
Can This Treatment Work for Me?
This treatment is safe for use by men and women who are 21 years of age and older. It’s suitable for use with all skin types and skin tones, making it a widely accessible treatment. Bellafill could be a good option for you if you’ve experienced a loss in facial volume, have wrinkles or scarring you’d like to smooth over, or you simply want a non-surgical yet long-term solution.
Facial Volume Loss
The gradual loss of volume is one of the biggest factors in aging a face. Hollow-looking cheeks, deep wrinkles or folds, sagging skin, and a hollow under-eye region can all age a face. This treatment instantly restores firmness and volume for patients with these conditions, filling out their features for a more youthful look.
This injectable filler is a great option for those with acne scars, particularly deep scars from cysts. This treatment doesn’t just focus on filling in the surface of the scar: it also lifts and smooths the skin beneath the scar. You’ll be amazed at how good it feels to put that scarring behind you.
Marionette lines. Laugh lines. Lots of terms have been thrown out when describing the long vertical lines that often form on either side of the mouth. This collagen injection helps smooth over those lines and other wrinkles, leaving you with a fresh-faced and rejuvenated appearance. It is particularly effective at treating static wrinkles, which are the wrinkles that are on your face even when you’re not stretching your face to make an expression.
Benefits of Bellafill
A Long-Term Solution
Regardless of whether you’re using Bellafill to address age-related wrinkles or acne scarring, this treatment is ideal for those who don’t want to fuss with a lot of ongoing maintenance and trips back to the doctor for repeat treatments. The results usually last for a year or longer, which means you don’t have to worry about the issue for months at a time.
A Non-Surgical Option
Maybe you don’t want to deal with the hassle or expense of a facelift. The anti-aging effects of this quick and easy injectable may be all that you need to get the fresh new look you’ve been hoping for. There is no downtime associated with this in-office treatment, which can be performed in less than an hour so that you can get on with your busy schedule.
A Safe Solution
Over the course of five years, this treatment was found to be safe through the longest and largest study of dermal fillers ever completed. It has been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to treat nasolabial folds — otherwise known as laugh lines — and certain types of acne scars.
What Makes This Injectable Different From Other Fillers?
There are other injectable anti-aging fillers on the market, but their main ingredient is hyaluronic acid, a substance that is naturally produced by the body. As a result, those fillers are absorbed by the body over time, so their effects don’t really last. Bellafill, on the other hand, stays put once it is injected.
It won’t dissolve into the body. Instead, the collagen ad polymethylmethacrylate microspheres provide structural support to the skin and serve as the foundation for a smooth, healthy face. This injectable also contains a small amount of lidocaine, a local anesthetic, to help make the injection more comfortable.
What’s the Treatment Like?
This treatment itself can be done in less than an hour. You can even have it done on your lunch break and then go right back to work. But there are a few preliminaries to get out of the way first. If you’re interested in this treatment, we’ll first schedule a consultation in our office, where we’ll examine your skin, talk with you about what you’re hoping to accomplish, and work with you to determine whether or not this is the best treatment option for you. Prior to treatment, we’ll also need to conduct a skin test to ensure that you’re not allergic to any of the ingredients in this filler.
