Solomon Cosmetic Center and George Solomon, M.D. are pleased to offer Bellafill® to Tampa, Fla., patients. Bellafill® is an FDA approved semi-permanent injectable filler that adds volume and smooths wrinkles to the “smile lines” as well as pitted acne scars on the cheeks. The treatment is a non-absorbable 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 it to last up to one year in many patients, however, results vary from patient to patient.
How Does Bellafill® Work?
Over time, our skin loses collagen which is referred to as aging. Unlike other facial fillers like Radiesse®, Restylane® and Juvéderm®, Bellafill stimulates collagen growth and re-creates a firm structure of the skin by supporting the 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 up to one year in some patients.
- Acne Scars: Bellafill® is the first and only filler on the market that is FDA approved for the correction of acne scars. Bellafill® helps 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?
This treatment is a non-absorbable, FDA approved, dermal filler that can last up to a year. Prior to injection, there is a required skin test which identifies patients who may have an allergy to lidocaine or bovine collagen.
Aftercare and Recovery
The procedure takes approximately 15 minutes to perform, 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.
Each patient is unique; therefore, results may vary.
