What is Bellafill?
Solomon Cosmetic Center is pleased to offer Bellafill to Tampa patients. Bellafill is a new FDA approved semi-permanent injectable filler that adds volume and smooths out wrinkles to the “smile lines” as well as pitted acne scars on the cheeks. Bellafill is a non-resorbable dermal filler, unlike many other dermal fillers that are absorbed and require re-injection. According to Dr. George Solomon, “We have seen great success with this filler at our practice and are thrilled to have a long lasting option for our patients”. Studies have found that Bellafill can last up to 1 year in many patients but results may vary from patient to patient.
How does Bellafill™ work?
Over time, our skin looses collagen which is referred to aging. Unlike other facial fillers like Radiesse, Restylane and Juvederm, Bellafill simulates collagen growth and re-creates a firm structure of the skin by supporting production of the body’s own collagen.
- Smile Lines (nasolabial folds): Bellafill is a unique, injectable collagen filler with microspheres that can smooth facial wrinkles (nasolabial folds) for beautiful, natural-looking correction that lasts for instead of months. To read more about Bellafill click here+
- Acne Scars: Bellafill™ is the first only filler on the market approved in the U.S. that is FDA approved for the correction of acne scars. Bellafill helps to fade acne scars by adding volume to them, bringing them to the level of the surrounding skin and keeping them there for 1 year in some patients. Results of Bellafill and length of retention can vary from patient to patient.
How long does Bellafill last?
Bellafill is a non-resorbable, FDA approved dermal filler that is approved to last for up to a year. Prior to injection, Bellafill requires a skin test to identify patients who may have an allergy to lidocaine or bovine collagen.
What is the recovery time?
The procedure takes fifteen minutes for Dr. Solomon to perform at our Tampa cosmetic surgery office with little to no downtime. Common side effects include those usually associated with injections such as slight pain, tenderness, redness, swelling, bruising, firmness, and bumps around the injection site.
