Bellafill, the longest lasting, 5-year filler is now available in Northern Colorado at Restore Beauty Face & Body Clinic.
Bellafill is ideal for patients who have previously been injected with a dermal filler and desire a longer lasting result.
With the much more popular hyaluronic acid fillers, people have to go in every six to nine months, which can be tiresome and expensive. Bellafill’s unique microspheres of PMMA (same material implants are made of) stimulate new collagen formation, resulting in the longest lasting solution for wrinkle correction that can last for 5 year PLUS.
Extensive study and testing.
Bellafill’s five-year approval is based on the world’s largest and longest dermal-filler study, completed in February 2014. It involved 1,008 patients (88.9 percent of them female) in 23 centers across the U.S. who received injections of Bellafill in their nasal-labial folds (a.k.a. smile lines). At five years, there was an 87 percent retention rate. The formula is comprised of collagen, polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) microspheres, and 0.3 percent lidocaine, a numbing agent for injection comfort.
After injection, the body absorbs the collagen over time and the PMMA spheres remain to plump the area. Bellafill is a collagen stimulating filler. Collagen actually wraps around the PMMA spheres and increase the skin’s thickness. First-time users need to plan ahead, however, to make sure they’re not among the small percentage of the population that is allergic to bovine collagen.
Good candidates are adult men or women who are looking for long-lasting dermal filler results. Though suitable for injection anywhere on the face, Bellafill is ideal for under-eye hollows, ‘bar code and marionette lines’, as well as temple area.
You may experience mild bruising, redness, or swelling around the injection site. After the procedure patients can return to their normal daily routine immediately, with no downtime. Injectable dermal fillers are often known as ‘lunchtime face lifts‘ because of the limited time required. For the first few days, patients should avoid rubbing or touching the treated area, which can cause the Bellafill to migrate out of place. The effects of the injection are seen immediately. Although in general the effects of dermal fillers are considered temporary, one advantage of Bellafill over similar products is that it is the only dermal filler to be considered permanent.
Our cost for Bellafill injections is about the same as that of Juvederm Voluma per syringe. However, the results last longer, reducing the need for repeat visits and leading to lower costs over time. More than one syringe may be needed depending on the goals of the procedure.
