Bellafill for Smile Lines and Acne Scars

A Collagen Stimulator

When Bellafill is injected, the PMMA and collagen gel provides immedicate correction to correct wrinkles and acne scars

Over time the collagen gel dissipates and fibroblasts migrate in and around the PMMA microspheres. 

The PMMA microspheres act as a scaffold around which fibroblasts deposit the patient’s own collagen.

What is Bellafill?

Bellafill can be used to treat smile lines for up to 5 years and acne scars for up to 1 year! We know, it’s quite incredible!

Fillers are an immediate action to improve your skin’s plumpness, enhance shallow contour, soften facial creases and wrinkles. The Bellafill injectable not only fills in severe smile lines, but it also improves the appearance of recessed scars. The formula is made up of a soft collagen gel and polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) microspheres, that are not metabolized. These small spheres help to keep the structure of the skin and encourage collagen production. This collagen will form a strong, youthful support structure around the PMMA, which will last up to five years. Bellafill’ s unique microspheres are also the reason this dermal filler is FDA-approved for the treatment of acne scars.

What is Collagen?

"Collagen is the main structural protein in the skin," explains Dr. Henry. "Collagen makes up one-third of the protein in the human body and it gives the skin its elasticity and strength, contributing to a youthful appearance." You can find it in a number of products from serums and moisturizers to injections, waters, and even beers.

Adding collagen restores damage from sun exposure and other environmental factors, adding a youthful volume to the skin. It’s also been used to restore brittle, broken nails, lessen back pain, and even prevent and help treat heart disease.

Times have changed. It’s now a lot safer to inject collagen since old complicated formulas have been updated. The science has significantly changed and the FDA has approved one injectable collagen product called Bellafill.

“Bellafill is the only dermal filler that utilizes collagen and stimulates the body’s own natural collagen growth long term, helping maintain a youthful appearance for up to five years when targeting nasolabial folds,” explains Dr. Henry. It’s ideal for deep smile lines and wrinkles but it’s also useful for rolling acne scars along the cheeks and lasts for up to one year.

Dr. Henry confirms it’s very safe to ingest collagen. “We process it as a we do any other type of protein,” says Henry. The current studies are mixed on whether the collagen we consume orally will be effectively stored in the skin to improve elasticity and strength. Before you start adding collagen to your water or crushing a couple collagen-enhanced cold ones with your buds, you might want to look into more beneficial forms.

You should look for FDA approved products with proven science-backed efficacy. Dr. Henry explains that there are many products on the market that can easily confuse customers. It’s important to read the labels and look for three main ingredients: collagen, elastin, and keratin. When the three ingredients work together in a solution, they provide the plumping and rebuilding of dead cells that deliver the youthful looks. Dr. Henry also recommends being wary of collagen creams as they are unlikely to raise the skin’s collagen levels as collagen molecules are large and not readily absorbed through the skin. That’s not to say no creams work, you just have to make sure to do a bit a research before you purchase your dream cream.
