Bellafill® is a collagen-based dermal filler that helps improves smile lines and acne scars. It works by providing immediate lift and volume to the treatment area. This product differs from other fillers in that it is the only injectable that is FDA-approved for five years by stimulating collagen growth long-term.
Benefits of Bellafill®
One of the biggest benefits of Bellafill® is the longevity of its effects. It works to boost your body’s natural collagen production over time, helping you maintain a youthful appearance for up to five years or more after treatment. This allows you to spend less time on injections and more time enjoying your refreshed appearance. At OBI BioAesthetic Institute, Bellafill® is one of the injectables and fillers we offer, and we use it to treat marionette lines and to fill moderate to severe acne scars. It can also be used to add definition to the cheek or temple areas.
What Should I Expect from Bellafill® Treatment?
Your treatment with Bellafill® will be relatively pain-free, as it incorporates lidocaine to decrease discomfort. If it is your first time being treated with this product, a simple collagen test will be required to ensure you are not allergic to collagen. Next, one of our skilled nurse practitioners will carefully inject the product into the area being treated. The entire procedure typically lasts about an hour or less. There is no downtime required, however, some people experience mild redness and bruising. Most patients go right back to their daily activities following treatment; however, specific post-treatment care is necessary and will be discussed during your appointment. Mild redness and bruising can be reduced by avoiding medications such as aspirin, ibuprofen and vitamin E for one week prior to treatment. The use of arnica may also help some patients avoid bruising. You will immediately see results that will continue to improve over time.
