Smile Lines are Nothing to Smile About: How Bellafil can Help

Are you noticing smile lines and wrinkles that make you look older than you feel? Unfortunately, the connective tissues that give your skin structure start breaking down as you grow older, causing telltale signs, like fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin. 

But that doesn’t mean you have to live with it. Innovative treatments like Bellafill® dermal filler can help you retain your youthful appearance, and it can provide results for up to five years.

At Natura Dermatology & Cosmetics, our board-certified dermatologist Will Richardson, MD, offers clients in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, the tools they need to bring out the best in their appearances. 

And our team only offers treatments that are proven to be effective, whether you want to rejuvenate your skin, contour your body, or reverse the signs of aging with cosmetic injectables.

To that end, we’re especially excited about Bellafill, the only FDA-approved filler that provides results for up to five years. Here’s how it can tackle those pesky folds around your mouth, so you can put your smile at the forefront again.

How your skin changes with age

Almost everyone has nasolabial folds. They form parentheses around your mouth, especially when you smile. Unfortunately, these lines also grow more pronounced with age. The main reason is the loss of elastin and collagen in your skin as you get older. 

These proteins provide much of the tone and elasticity in your tissue, but their production begins to naturally wane with age. As a result, your skin begins to sag and thin, making it easier for lines and wrinkles to become more noticeable. 

While these changes affect all of your skin, they become even more pronounced around your mouth. Your nasolabial folds deepen as your skin begins to droop and your tissue thins. It can also lead to marionette lines, which extend beyond your mouth and down to your chin.

Turning back time with Bellafill

Dermal fillers offer the amazing ability to restore lost volume to aging skin. These products aren’t new and have been used by aestheticians for years. Whether you want to fill in lines around the bottom half of your face or plump up hollow cheeks, dermal fillers are just the ticket. 

But most dermal filler brands only last for six months to a year, which leaves you returning time and again to maintain your youthful look. Bellafill lets us give you proven results that last up to five years or longer. 

The secret to this long-term success? Bellafill contains tiny, polymethyl methacrylate microspheres, suspended within a base of smooth collagen gel. 

Once we inject the Bellafill, it goes to work immediately, filling in your smile lines with the boost of liquid. At the same time, your tissue uses the microspheres to create a new scaffold. This provides a renewed structural support system for your own natural collagen to attach itself to.

With a therapeutic approach, your natural collagen can continue to add volume to your face over the months and years to come, reducing the appearance of wrinkles. 

With results like these, it’s hard not to love Bellafill. But what thrills us most is that it enjoys an 83% satisfaction rate after five years — results practically unheard of with most anti-aging treatments. 

That means you can save your valuable time and money by addressing your smile lines correctly with Bellafill from Day One.
