Facial fillers are a wonderful option for quick cosmetic enhancements. Whether you want to smooth lines around your nose and mouth or hide the appearance of acne scarring, Bellafill® injections offer a lasting option for improving your facial skin. But what makes Bellafill any different from the wide range of hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers on the market? For one, it does not contain HA and uses a different technology to improve the skin’s appearance – polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) microspheres.
What Are PMMA Microspheres?
HA fillers plump under the skin by collecting moisture. While this works wonderfully for many cosmetic enhancements, the results usually fade within a year. Bellafill has PMMA microspheres as the active ingredient in this filler, which works differently than HA fillers.
The PMMA microspheres work in two ways. First, they provide almost instant filler results after the injection. The microspheres plump under lines or acne scars to improve the skin appearance. This is just the beginning. Over time, collagen forms around the microspheres, a natural reaction to a foreign substance in the skin. This provides the smoothing and volumizing effect desired for firmer, more youthful-looking skin.
The biggest difference between Bellafill and most HA fillers is how long the results last. Patients who have Bellafill injections to smooth nasolabial fold lines or to hide acne scars can enjoy results for five years or more. The results improve over the first few months as collagen levels in the skin increase.
Like most facial filler injections, Bellafill treatment can be performed in a quick and virtually painless procedure. Patients receiving Bellafill can expect the treatment to be completed in less than a half hour. There is no recovery or downtime required and very few risks of side effects. The injected area may be slightly swollen or bruised from the injections, but this is temporary and can dissipate quickly.
