New Permanent Filler Bellafill in Santa Barbara

Dermal fillers are one of the most common and popular aesthetic treatments done worldwide. Restylane, Restylane Lyft (formerly Perlane), Juvederm, Voluma and Radiesse are some of the well-known fillers available today. Fillers are used to restore volume to an aging face, correct imperfections such as acne scars and wrinkles, and are also used to enhance features (cheeks, lips, jawline). The result of a filler treatment is seen instantaneously and last 6 months or more. The drawback of most fillers are that they are not permanent.
The good news is that there is a new permanent injectable fillerBellafill – now available in the USA and at our Cosmetic Surgery Center practice.
What is Bellafill and how does it work?
Bellafill is composed of a collagen “carrier” and PMMA (polymethylmethacrylate) microspheres. The collagen immediately adds volume to the skin for correction while the PMMA microspheres create a matrix that supports your body’s own collagen production in the skin for lasting improvement.
Is Bellafill safe?
Bellafill has been proven safe through 5 years for correction of nasolabial folds or smile lines in the largest and longest prospective dermal filler study ever completed.
What do people have to say about Bellafill?
In a consumer survey, 91% of patients were likely to recommend Bellafill. In a 5-year-post-approval study, 83% of patients said they were “satisfied to very satisfied” with their correction at the end of 5 years.
