The face has countless muscles. These muscles move our flesh in ways that allow us to express surprise, sadness and laughter. The problem is that these folds tend to create creases in the skin that increase in both severity and number as we age. These lines are often known as wrinkles. Even if you were to refrain from moving your muscles, these wrinkles would still exist. That’s why treatments like Bellafill may be a remarkable solution for the age-old problem of wrinkles.
What is Bellafill?
Bellafill is a collagen filler that can be injected into the dermis layer of your skin. It works to not only provide a smoother appearance of your skin, but it also stabilizes any new collagen that your body naturally produces. This enables it to act as a long-lasting treatment for wrinkles, acne scars and other imperfections that tend to come with age.
How Does Bellafill Work?
Bellafill works in two ways: immediately and over time. Upon receiving a Bellafill injection, you will immediately notice that the appearance of some lines and wrinkles in your skin diminish. This is the result of the Bellafill microspheres filling in for the collagen that your skin is naturally missing as the result of the folds in your skin. Weeks and months after receiving Bellafill, you will notice that the appearance of your wrinkles, creases and lines continue to diminish. This is because Bellafill works with your body to create a more stable layer of collagen within the dermis layer of your skin.
The stable layer of collagen continues to work for a prolonged period of time. It is what enables Bellafill to act as a long-term solution for wrinkles and other conditions that result from the displacement of collagen in your skin.
How Safe is Bellafill?
Bellafill is considered safe for most patients to use. The Bellafill microspheres interact solely with collagen, and they don’t move within the collagen layer of your skin once the Bellafill matrix has been established. This makes Bellafill a stable treatment that creates a lasting improvement in the appearance and texture of your skin.
Can Bellafill Make Your Wrinkles Disappear?
While no treatment options can make your wrinkles disappear completely, few can make them disappear with the effectiveness that Bellafill can, while providing both immediate and long-term results. This helps your face establish a collagen layer that is both more free and resistant to lines created by collagen displacement.
The one thing to keep in mind is that not every patient can use Bellafill. Certain patients may be allergic to the lidocaine or collagen contained within Bellafill, which is why your dermatologist will need to test your skin before applying it.
