The Difference Between Bellafill® and Hyaluronic Acid Fillers

Bellafill in TXThere are many treatments in the injectable universe that can reverse signs of aging and help you temporarily achieve a more youthful appearance. For most injectable products, these treatments involve the injection of a hyaluronic acid-based gel into the skin, which adds volume to smooth out lines and wrinkles. Over time, however, this gel will gradually dissolve, leaving you back at square one. Bellafill® stands out from the crowd of traditional hyaluronic acid fillers because it offers two things that no other injectable filler can offer; 1- stimulates natural collagen production. 2- Bellafill is the only product on the market that is indicated to last up to 5 years.

Bellafill® & Collagen

While most injectable treatments offer a temporary and superficial fix, Bellafill® is unique in the way that it stimulates the natural production of collagen in the body. Collagen, as you may know, is an essential protein that assists in maintaining skin volume and youthfulness. As we age, the body produces less collagen, which is one of the reasons that the effects of aging start to become visible. With the Bellafill® formula, however, patients can increase their body’s natural collagen production while simultaneously smoothing out lines and wrinkles in the skin. This means that after the point where the Bellafill® formula has been broken down by the body, your body is still producing additional collagen. As a result, your results from a Bellafill® treatment can last much longer than results from other injectable treatments. Plus, they may even look more natural, thanks to the major role your body plays in producing these results.

What is the Bellafill® Treatment Like?

The Bellafill® treatment experience is much like that of traditional dermal fillers and injectables. Prior to treatment, a topical anesthetic will be applied to the treatment area to minimize any discomfort that may occur during the injection process. Once the skin is adequately numbed, the injections will be performed in your desired treatment area. This process takes only a few minutes, which means that the entire Bellafill® treatment can be performed in a 30-minute office visit. Plus, there’s no downtime required after Bellafill®. You may experience some minor swelling or bruising, but you will be able to return to your usual activities immediately, with results becoming increasingly visible as the body produces new collagen over the following months.
