Smile Lines Can Be Scary

October revels in its being known as a scary month. But for people with deep smile lines, watching a Friday the 13th Marathon on AMC is less scary than seeing those deep creases from your nose down to the corners of your mouth in the mirror every morning.

Dr. Kearney has a long-lasting solution to your smile lines, and it doesn’t require any incisions or sutures or a minute of down time. It’s Bellafill®, the longest lasting dermal filler. Bellafill® gets rids of those scary nasolabial folds for up to five years. You read that right.

Bellafill® is FDA-approved for the correction of nasolabial folds, colloquially known as smile lines, and the correction of moderate to severe atrophic, distensible facial acne scars on the cheeks. Our patients from San Diego and the surrounding areas love the half decade results it provides

How does Bellafill® work?

Bellafill® works in two ways that basically encompass two stages. It has collagen in the filler, along with polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) microspheres. The first stage involves the collagen. Once injected, the collagen immediately adds volume to the skin to lift and fill smile lines and severe acne scarring.

The second, long-lasting secret to Bellafill® comes 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.
