Bellafill Q & A

What is Bellafill?

Bellafill is an FDA-approved treatment for reducing the appearance of smile lines and acne scars. It’s a cosmetic injectable, meaning Dr. Richardson applies specific amounts of Bellafill to targeted locations on your face via an injection. In this way, he’s able to help you toward your aesthetic goals. 

How does Bellafill work for smile lines?

Bellafill treats smile lines by not only directly filling the area for short-term results, but also by bolstering your skin’s natural support structures. As a result, the effects of Bellafill can last up to five years, significantly longer than most other cosmetic injectables available today. 

When Dr. Richardson injects Bellafill into your smile lines, he delivers two key ingredients: polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) microspheres and collagen gel. The collagen gel immediately fills in your smile line, while the PMMI microspheres stimulate your body’s production of more collagen. This is the protein that keeps your skin plump and tight. As your skin builds a new collagen network at your smile line, it creates a support structure in the area to prevent the line from deepening for up to five years. 

How does Bellafill work for acne scars?

Sunken acne scars don’t have to leave you with uneven skin texture. When Dr. Richardson injects carefully measured amounts of Bellafill into your scar, it raises the skin in the scar to meet the surrounding skin. This minimizes the appearance of your scar with results that can last as long as a year. 

What should I expect from the Bellafill treatment process?

Dr. Richardson offers Bellafill because it’s a highly effective, long-lasting, and convenient treatment. Getting Bellafill is a quick process that can take just minutes, depending on how many locations you need treated. 

There’s no downtime with Bellafill either. When you leave Natura Dermatology & Cosmetics after getting Bellafill, you can head directly to the next activity on your agenda. 

If you have pronounced smile lines or sunken acne scars, Bellafill can reduce their appearance with long-lasting, natural-looking results. Don’t hesitate to ask Dr. Richardson if Bellafill is right for you.
