Why Choose Bellafill®? AT DERMACARE SAN DIEGO

The aging process is something that everyone experiences in their lifetime, and whether you want to or not, at some point you’ll need to embrace the fact that this will become a reality. Luckily there are some cosmetic medicine improvements that can help prevent or even reduce those signs of aging, and at Dermacare Laser & Skin Care Clinics we can help make that transition a little bit easier.

At Dermacare, we are proud to offer an array of treatments that are customizable to patients who are both new to aesthetics and patients who might be more seasoned in their experience. When it comes to filler options for a more experienced patient, Bellafill® is a popular choice. 

What Is Bellafill®?

Bellafill® is a dermal filler that is used to smooth out the skin, add volume, and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. The injectable is made from two main components: a collagen-based gel and polymethyl methacrylate microspheres (PMMA). The former adds volume to your cheeks and other sunken areas of your face, whereas the latter offers long-lasting support. 

Bellafill® is most commonly used to reduce the appearance of nasolabial folds, also referred to as laugh lines. Thanks to the PMMA microspheres that support the skin underneath, the effect can last as long as five years. The presence of the microsphere will also stimulate collagen growth continuously, offering a more youthful look.

Advantages of Using Bellafill® 

Here are the main benefits of using Bellafill®:

  • It Reduces Smile Lines and Wrinkles

We all develop smile lines at some point. When you are young, those smile lines will smooth out when you stop smiling. However, as you get older, the skin may no longer smooth out into place, leaving permanent, unwanted lines on your face. Bellafill® can fill in the creases, using the PMMA microspheres to stimulate collagen production over time. This injectable helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. 

  • It Offers Quick Results

The collagen-based gel in Bellafill® can provide an immediate plumping effect, with most patients noticing a difference right after the treatment. This makes it the perfect option for anyone who wants a more youthful look, without waiting too long for the effects to appear. The results will only get better with time, as your skin will keep producing collagen.

  • It Reduces Acne Scars

Acne scars occur when the wound left behind by a pimple starts producing too much collagen, causing a mark. The bigger the acne spot, the more collagen will accumulate in the same area to heal it. Bellafill® will stimulate a controlled production of collagen over a wider area, triggering the healing process once more and reducing the appearance of acne scars.

  • It Provides Long-Lasting Results

Very often, when you get a dermal filler treatment, you have to repeat the injections once every three to five months. While HA-based dermal fillers are effective at improving your facial aesthetic, your body will process the substance out of your body quite fast. However, Bellafill® will leave the PMMA microspheres behind, which will continuously stimulate collagen production. For example, when it comes to wrinkles and fine lines, you are able to enjoy the effects for almost five years.


  • It Offers Natural-Looking Results

Rather than adding extra amounts of collagen to your face for a plumper look, Bellafill® works together with your body. The gel-based collagen is merely a conduit for the PMMA microspheres to be delivered to your skin. Those microspheres will trigger your body’s natural production of collagen, which will settle normally where it is supposed to for natural and beautiful-looking results. 

  • It Provides Quick Recovery

One of the main advantages of the Bellafill® treatment is the quick recovery process. As a minimally invasive procedure, the potential for downtime is reduced. You may notice some bruising and swelling, but this is a normal reaction of your body to a foreign substance. The side effects should go away within a few days of the initial treatment.
