Find Out How Bellafill Is Different From temporary Dermal Fillers
All temporary fillers, such as autologous fat, bovine collagen (Zyderm®, Zyplast®) human collagen (CosmoDerm®, CosmoPlast®), and hyaluronic acid (Restylane®, Hylaform®), provide only temporary effects because they are naturally absorbed by the body within a few months following implantation. That is why they require frequent repeat injections. Bellafill is different. Aesthetic results are not only visible immediately but the unique microspheres in Bellafill provide a permanent support structure to support the wrinkle and to prevent further wrinkling. As with all products using bovine collagen, a skin sensitivity test must be performed prior to use.
With Bellafill, you can get the lasting wrinkle correction you want in just one or two treatments. Where the results of temporary fillers end, the long-lasting benefits of Bellafill continue.
How Is Bellafill Applied?
Bellafill is simply injected by Dr. Alavi, under the defect with a small needle. Because it also contains lidocaine, it immediately numbs up the area upon administration. This can be done with either numbing cream or a nerve block with minimum discomfort. As Bellafill is long lasting it requires proper training in injection and avoiding complication. Dr. Alavi is considered a world expert in this product and has more experience than almost any other physician in United States.
