What do you know about fillers?  

Do you have filler fatigue?

Do you know there are options that are lasting with fillers?

Bellafill is known as the five year filler, it is not a hyaluronic acid.  This dermal filler is a combination of polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) microspheres and bovine collagen. It is used to volumize and smooth out the skin particularly in the smile lines.  

It is safe when injected properlyvand is FDA approved and regulated.  Bellafill has been used in the Orthopedic space of medicine for years before understanding its benefit to skin and facial volumization.  

This product is great for those of us who want filler placed in areas of their face "permanently" and don't want to continue getting "filled" on a regular basis. This constant filling leads to what we dub as "filler fatigue". 

Bellafill is not for everyone and there are about 1% of the population who will have an allergic reaction to the initial injection.  A skin test is performed 30 prior to injection for this reason.  It should only be injected by highly trained and skilled Board Certified Plastic Surgeons or Dermatologists.  Bellafill is safe and effective when administered properly with lasting results. 

Call Today for your next filler consultation and ask for Bellafill by name.
