Forehead Wrinkle Reduction in Annapolis MD
What is Bellafill®
Bellafill® is a dermal filler made with collagen gel and PMMA microspheres. Bellafill® re-creates the firm structure of younger-looking skin by supporting the production of your body’s own collagen.
Bellafill® is a polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) collagen filler: The collagen gel in Bellafill® provides immediate volume and lift. Over time, the collagen is absorbed by the body. The PMMA microspheres remain in place and create a matrix that supports the production of the body’s own collagen for lasting correction. The tiny microspheres in Bellafill® are half the diameter of a human hair, so small that they are virtually invisible to the eye. The microspheres are made of polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA), one of the most widely used materials in medicine for 65 years.
How Bellafill® Works
Bellafill® replaces lost volume in the skin below the wrinkle for results that are immediate and lasting. The injectable gel is comprised of 80% purified collagen and 20% PMMA (polymethylmethacrylate) microspheres. Bellafill® is placed below the depression using a fine needle. The injectable gel immediately adds volume to the skin to lift and smooth out wrinkles.
What Causes Facial Wrinkles?
Over time, we lose volume in our faces, increasing the chances for wrinkles and folds to appear. The fat pads in our cheeks may slide down towards the mouth, which can cause the skin to wrinkle or fold, creating the “smile lines” from your nose to the corners of your mouth. Bellafill® effectively treats volume loss to reverse the signs of aging.
Wrinkles can also be caused by repeated movements of the facial skin. These types of wrinkles are “dynamic” Age is a factor, but repeated facial movements, such as frowning or squinting, can also create lines, which means they may develop even in younger adults. These wrinkles are not candidates for Bellafill® treatment.
