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. It’s also beneficial to minimize “smile lines” as well as acne scars on the cheeks. The treatment is a non-absorbable dermal filler, which means it lasts longer than other injectables.
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, the skin loses collagen which causes aging. 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 especially nasolabial folds. The results are beautiful and natural-looking. It 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. It fills the scar and lasts up to one year. Results of Bellafill® and length of retention 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.
