There are so many reasons signs of aging can begin to appear prematurely. There is sun damage from UV rays that can cause wrinkling, changes in skin texture and hyperpigmentation. Then there are the age-related issues like the loss of collagen and the thinning of the dermis. However, the most troublesome sign of aging is the loss of volume around the face.
What are Bellafill® Injections?
Bellafill® is a dermal filler that has been approved by the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) for injection into the skin in order to remove folds in the skin and smile lines. This dermal filler is unique, though. Unlike other dermal fillers, it remains in the skin permanently and is not absorbed by the body.
Approved for use in both women and men, Bellafill® is mixture of a variation of collagen and Lidocaine, a local anesthetic. This unique mixture produces an injectable dermal filler that is intended to be a permanent solution to wrinkles and fine lines around the nose and corners of the mouth.
Before patients are given Bellafill® injections, there must be a skin test to determine if there will be any complications arising out of an allergic reaction to the solution. This is done on a small patch of skin, and the results come back the same day. Although it’s rare, some patients have an allergic reaction to the collagen in the solution.
Who Should Consider Bellafill® Injections?
Bellafill® injections are not right for just anyone. It’s beneficial if you have had experience with other dermal fillers before. This will give you more of an idea of what the results will be like. If you have liked the results with dermal fillers in the past, you’ll love the results of Bellafill® because they are permanent.
These injections are best for areas of the skin that are not so thin. These include “crow’s feet” wrinkles around the eyes. Bellafill® is best for smile lines and areas around the face with thicker skin. Candidates should be in good overall health with realistic expectations.
