Going through life with a positive, cheerful attitude is a good thing. However, if you frequently smile and laugh, you may develop deep smile lines that make you look older and less attractive than you really are. Fortunately, you can minimize these wrinkles with Bellafill. At Rejuvené MD in El Paso, Texas, we can use this innovative dermal filler to smooth your wrinkles and add volume to your face. Read on to learn more about this long-lasting treatment.
When Will I See Results After Bellafill Treatment?
Bellafill is an FDA-approved injectable treatment that can minimize the appearance of your nasolabial folds, commonly known as smile lines. This dermal filler is a great way to quickly improve your appearance. Since your treatment will be personalized to fit your unique needs, your individual results will vary. That said, this product contains collagen that will immediately improve the appearance of your wrinkles.
In addition to providing instant results, this injectable treatment also provides gradual improvements in your appearance. Over time, this product will stimulate your body to produce additional collagen. Collagen is a structural protein that helps your skin stay strong and elastic. As your collagen levels increase, your appearance will continue to improve.
Why Has My Face Changed Over Time?
As you age, the structure and condition of your skin change, and you start to develop wrinkles and folds on your face.
When you are young, you have ample volume in your cheeks, and your skin is supple, hydrated, and strong. However, as you enter your twenties, your collagen levels will start to decline, and you may develop fine lines that reflect your most frequent facial expressions.
When you are in your thirties, your collagen levels decrease more dramatically. As a result, your skin will become weaker and less resilient, and your fine lines turn into noticeable wrinkles.
In your forties, your skin continues to lose collagen, and you see a decrease in the amount of volume in your face. Your skin begins to sag, and your wrinkles become deeper.
In your fifties, your body produces less oil, and your skin becomes drier. If you have spent a lot of time in the sun during your life, you may develop age spots and pigmentation issues. You may also develop additional wrinkles and fine lines on your face.
Rejuvenating Your Skin
Fixing this issue on your own is very difficult, and many cosmetic treatments provide temporary improvements that do not address the core issues that are causing your skin to age. Fortunately, Bellafill can renew your skin by restoring your lost collagen. As a result, this product will provide lasting improvements that persist.
How Does This Injectable Treatment Improve My Wrinkles?
This wrinkle reduction treatment uses a sophisticated technique to increase your body’s production of collagen.
An Innovative Formula
This injectable product contains collagen gel and polymethyl methacrylate microspheres. Polymethyl methacrylate, also called PMMA, is biocompatible, and healthcare professionals have used this substance to create medical implants for a very long time.
Increasing Your Collagen
After we administer your injections, the collagen in the product will quickly add volume to your target area. This additional volume will immediately improve the appearance of your wrinkles. Over time, your body will gradually absorb the collagen that we injected into your treatment area. During this time, the microspheres will remain stationary in your target location. These microspheres will provide a foundation that encourages your body to produce additional collagen.
You have more than twenty different types of collagen in your body. Collagen Type I and Collagen Type III are commonly found in your skin. Type I strengthens your skin, and Type III helps your skin heal wounds. This injectable product will increase both of these types of collagen.
Your increased production of these types of collagen will add volume to your target area and reduce the prominence of your wrinkles. This is a gradual process, and your appearance will continue to improve for several months after you receive your injections.
What Will My Treatment Be Like?
This is a very straightforward treatment, and you will receive your injections during an outpatient appointment in our office in El Paso, Texas. This product contains lidocaine, a local anesthetic that will help you feel comfortable during the injection process. Receiving your injections is a very quick process, and you will feel relaxed as we administer the product into your target area.
What Will My Recovery Be Like?
This injectable treatment has minimal downtime time, and you will be able to resume your typical schedule immediately. Although your individual results will vary, your body is likely to completely recover from your treatment within one to seven days.
Will I Have to Receive Frequent Maintenance Treatments?
Many injectable treatments will only improve your appearance for a few months. As a result, you must receive regular touch-up treatments to keep up your new look. Attending these appointments can lead to “filler fatigue” as you struggle to handle the commitment, expense, and inconvenience of receiving regular injections.
This feeling is very common. In a survey, the majority of people who used dermal fillers said that they were experiencing filler fatigue. Further, many people said that cost issues prevented them from receiving regular follow-up treatments.
Fortunately, you don’t need to attend frequent follow-up appointments when you receive Bellafil. Unlike other injectable products, this treatment will provide long-lasting results. Since your body is unique, your results may last for a longer or shorter period than other people. That said, this filler may improve your wrinkles for up to five years. In fact, 83% of people surveyed were satisfied with their results at this point.
Is This Treatment Safe?
This is a proven treatment that people have been using to treat their smile lines for many years. In 2006, the FDA approved this product under the trade name ArteFill. Further, this treatment’s safety was proven in a dermal filler study that lasted for five years.
Does This Treatment Work for Men?
Women aren’t the only ones who use dermal fillers and other injectable products to enhance their appearance. Four million men in the United States have received dermal fillers, and men’s use of aesthetic treatments is growing by eleven percent each year.
If you’re a busy man who is looking for a quick way to minimize your wrinkles, this dermal filler may be an ideal solution for you. This long-lasting treatment is very easy to fit into your schedule. You won’t have to interrupt your work schedule, exercise routine, or hobbies to receive regular maintenance appointments. Instead, you can receive a single treatment that can improve your appearance for up to five years.
Can I Buy This Injectable Product Online?
You might have come across websites that claim to sell this product directly to consumers. These websites do not sell authentic products, and you should not attempt to buy this product online.
Although this product is very gentle, you cannot perform your treatment on your own. To protect your safety, you must always receive your injections from a trained medical professional. At Rejuvené MD, we have extensive experience using this treatment, and we will use our training and skills to administer your filler in a precise manner.
Will My Results Look Natural?
Some cosmetic treatments provide overly dramatic results. People’s faces might look puffy, inflated, or stiff after they receive these treatments. This injectable product is different. This treatment gradually improves your appearance by stimulating your body’s natural production of collagen.
The changes in your face will be soft, attractive, and natural-looking. Further, you will take several months to achieve the full benefits of your treatment. Since your improvements will appear gradually, your friends and family members will not realize that you used a dermal filler to improve your wrinkles. Instead, they might think that you are eating better or following a new skincare regime.
What Is the Difference Between This Injectable Treatment and Other Dermal Fillers?
In addition to Bellafill, we use a variety of other dermal fillers at Rejuvené MD. Each of these fillers is made using a unique formula that is designed to treat different wrinkles and imperfections.
Hyaluronic Acid Fillers
Many of our dermal fillers use hyaluronic acid to add volume to your face. Hyaluronic acid is a substance that helps your skin retain volume and moisture. Juvederm is a popular family of dermal fillers that uses this substance to improve the appearance of your wrinkles, facial folds, lips, and other imperfections. Similarly, Restylane is a fantastic collection of dermal fillers that uses synthetic hyaluronic acid to minimize marionette lines, lip lines, and other issues.
Other Dermal Fillers
In addition to hyaluronic acid-based products, we administer dermal fillers that use other substances to improve your appearance. For instance, Sculptra is a filler that uses poly-L-lactic acid to stimulate your body to make additional collagen. This filler can improve marionette lines, nasolabial folds, and chin wrinkles.
Radiesse can also increase your collagen levels. This unique filler uses microspheres of Calcium Hydroxylapatite to increase your body’s production of this useful protein. Radiesse can improve smile lines, chin wrinkles, and other issues.
Choosing a Filler
We will provide you with more information about all of our dermal fillers during your initial consultation. We will collaborate with you to select the best injectable product to treat your specific issues and concerns. If you would like to improve a variety of facial features, we may develop a customized treatment plan that includes several different dermal fillers.
Am I a Good Candidate for This Treatment?
This treatment works on many different skin types, so you are likely to be a good candidate for this wrinkle reduction method. We will decide whether you can safely receive this treatment during your initial consultation. We will examine your skin and talk about your overall health during this meeting. We will also use a skin test to determine if you have an allergy to bovine collagen.
At this point, you should tell us about any allergies that you have. You also need to inform us if you have a bleeding disorder or a tendency to develop excessive or thick scars. We will use this information to decide whether you are eligible for this treatment.
