Bellafill® vs. Traditional Facial Fillers


Facial fillers are among the most popular treatments for wrinkles, but there are several types of fillers out there. How do you know which one is best for you?

It all starts with understanding your options. Let’s take a closer look at two categories you need to know about: traditional facial fillers which are typically hyaluronic acid fillers and Calcium based. The more unique filler is considered a BIOSTIMULATOR and is known as Bellafill® Cosmetic. Is the difference between how long you want your investment to last? Hyaluronic fillers typically last up to one year. Bellafill lasts up to five years.

How Do Traditional Facial Fillers Work?

Most facial fillers on the market, like Juvéderm® and Restylane®, are made primarily with a material called hyaluronic acid. You already have hyaluronic acid in your body, but these fillers use a lab-created hyaluronic acid to create a synthetic volume that your injector can strategically place as needed. The fillers “fill in” wrinkles and give your skin a smoother look and more youthful contours.

Because of the way they work, facial fillers produce immediate results. There are many brands and varieties of traditional facial fillers, and the results can last anywhere from six months to twelve months depending on the specific product and how it’s formulated. These results are temporary because your body gradually metabolizes the filler.

What Makes Bellafill® Different from Traditional Facial Fillers?

There are plenty of facial fillers out there, but Bellafill® Cosmetic is truly unique because it works in a different way. It’s all about creating longer-lasting results by stimulating your own collagen. Think of it this way…do you want to rent or own your results?

Bellafill® is made of a material called polymethyl methacrylate or PMMA. The microspheres of PMMA are inside a collagen gel. When your injector administers the Bellafill®, the collagen gel creates volume and smooths your wrinkles with immediate results.

The difference is in the long-term effect of Bellafill®. The PMMA inside the collagen gel creates a “scaffold” your body uses to create its own new collagen fibers in the specific areas that need more volume. That collagen firms and smooths your skin, reducing your wrinkles further and giving your skin an overall younger vitality.
