Bellafill Now Offered at Northside Plastic Surgery
Northside Plastic Surgery now offers Bellafill, an innovative treatment for patients wanting smoother-looking skin. Bellafill, a dermal filler that contains polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) microspheres, is a collagen gel that provides immediate volume and lift to correct wrinkles and acne scars. These microspheres stay in place and create a base that provides natural-looking results for up to five years.
Bellafill uses an innovative blend of two distinct components to create results that are both immediate and long lasting. Once injected, the collagen in Bellafill goes to work immediately, adding natural-looking volume to soften smile lines or acne scars. Over time, that patient’s body naturally metabolizes the collagen – but that doesn’t mean the filler’s results disappear. The PMMA microspheres work as a scaffolding system, supporting the development of the patient’s own collagen and laying the foundation for long-term smoothness.
“With Bellafill, patients don’t have to decide between looking great now and looking great later,” said Mike Majmundar, M.D., a board-certified facial plastic surgeon with Northside Plastic Surgery. “Bellafill not only immediately reduces the appearance of wrinkles and acne scars, but also maintains the improvement for up to five years.”
Although dermal fillers are often the preferred treatment for lines and wrinkles, many of them yield results that are temporary and require repeat touch-ups in order to last. Bellafill is a different type of filler. Its ingredients provide volume that’s both instant and lasting, eliminating the need for touch-up treatments required by other fillers.
In addition, Bellafill fades acne scars by adding volume to them, bringing them to the level of the surrounding skin and keeping them there through one year. Bellafill is the first and only injectable filler that’s FDA approved to treat acne scars.
