Bellafill Doesn’t Think Smile Lines Are Funny

Dermal Fillers | San Diego, CANothing lasts forever, well maybe Tony Gwynn being “King of the Padres” or the GI Joe with Kung Fu Grip doll in the landfill, but not much else. It surely is true of most dermal fillers. Sure dermal fillers return volume, but usually only for up to a year or so. At that point, the body absorbs what is left of the filler and the area’s volume decreases again, and with it the lines and wrinkles return.

But there is one long-lasting filler that Dr. Kearney offers — Bellafill®. Bellafill® keeps on keepin’ on for five years. You read that right. Five years. Whoa. That’s four-and-a-half years longer than most Hollywood marriages!

Bellafill® is FDA approved for the correction of nasolabial folds, colloquially known as smile lines, and the correction of moderate to severe atrophic, facial acne scars on the cheeks.

How does Bellafill® work?

Bellafill® works in two ways. It has bovine collagen in the filler, along with polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) microspheres. The collagen shows first, immediately adding volume to the skin to lift and fill smile lines.

Then come the effects from the PMMA microspheres. Once injected along with the collagen, the PMMA microspheres remain in place and they create a matrix that supports new collagen production in your skin. So, in addition to the filling aspect from the injected collagen Bellafill® also stimulates your body to create new collagen, which rejuvenates and fills the skin for years.

How long does it last?

Bellafill® is the king when it comes to dermal filler endurance. The FDA has approved Bellafill® and verifies its results with acne scars and nasolabial folds for five years. Studies show 83% patient satisfaction with Bellafill after five years. Also, 91% of people who’ve had Bellafill injections would recommend them to a friend.
