What is Bellafil?
Unlike using hyaluronic acid fillers, which can often dissolve within months, leaving you going for touch-ups more often, Bellafil creates lasting improvements to your skin. The tiny, polumethyl methacrylate (PMMA) microspheres are suspended within the base of smooth collagen gel.
Once Bellafil is injected, it immediately reduces the look of smile lines. Over time, your body uses the microspheres to create a “scaffold” onto which your own collagen can develop. This collagen will form a foundation that adds volume to wrinkles, reducing their appearance. These natural-looking results feel soft and smooth and can last for up to 5 years!
How do acne scars form?
Inflammation plays a large role in the formation of scars. Inflammation is mainly caused by acne which can impact the healing process and diminish the amount of helpful collagen that occurs naturally within your skin. While scars usually fade overtime, they often don’t go away completely without help.
How can Bellafil help?
Bellafil will reduce the look of acne scars in not 1, but 2 ways. The remarkably small polumethylmethacrylate (PMMA) microspheres are suspended in a smooth collagen gel. The diameter of each microsphere is less than that of a human hair, so they’re not visible to the human naked eye.
Once your practitioner has injected Bellefil, it then provides an immediate improvement that you can then enjoy as soon as you leave the appointment!
The microspheres form a supportive scaffold to allow your own collagen to build upon. As the gel breaks down over time, your collagen then forms a foundation that then adds to the volume of the acne scars providing a sustained improvement that will last.
However, your acne may be gone, the acne scars may hang around. Bellafil helps with these scars by adding volume to them, bringing them to the level of the surrounding skin and keeping them from showing for the long-term.
