Bellafill – Edmonton

Bellafill dermal filler – the future of aging prophylaxis

bellafill edmonton dr anil sharma

The market is full of products promising to give you a more youthful appearance in mere weeks or days. Temporary fillers simply are not effective in the long run, as they are absorbed by the body and require repeated injections to maintain the benefit.

Due its unique patented microspheres, Bellafill is not absorbed into the body. A longer lasting and natural method of reducing wrinkles, Bellafill is scientifically proven to last five years, and in some patients as long as nine years. Bellafill uses a natural method of correcting wrinkles, frown lines, and laugh lines through stimulating the body to regenerate its own collagen. Bellafill is extremely safe and has been well tested all over the world. The result of a five-year dermal filler study, the largest and most expansive of its kind, has lead to the approval of Health Canada, and the FDA.

In fact, Bellafil is the only FDA and Health Canada approved “permanent” filler. 

In essence, patients get to “own” their new youthful looks rather than renting them as with temporary dermal fillers. While Bellafill’s effect doesn’t last forever due to the natural aging process, it does last significantly longer than other dermal fillers. As a result, if the results are not to your liking, they are hard to correct. All the more reason to seek out an experienced skin care practitioner who is familiar with Bellafill.

A trainer for Suneva, the manufacturer of Bellafill, he shares his expertise with other surgeons, dermatologists and physicians throughout Europe and North America.

Bellafill FAQ

How does Bellafill work?

As we age, our skin loses its elasticity. Most products use fill to remove the wrinkles, but Bellafill restores the skin using a well-researched formula of 80% purified collagen and 20% PMMA (polymethylmethacrylate) microspheres. They are roughly half the diameter of a human hair, nearly undetectable to the eye, PMMA microspheres support your body’s own collagen production. As a result, Bellafill not only adds volume almost instantly, but helps your skin produce a firmer structure. You will be left looking younger, more beautiful, and more confident.

How is Bellafill injected?

Bellafill is similar to other injectable fillers in that lidocaine is used to lessen the pain beforehand. If done by an experienced skin care practitioner like Dr. Sharma, you shouldn’t feel anything after the procedure is performed. You should, however, see instant results. You can usually return to your regular routine quickly after the treatment. You’ll normally have a follow-up meeting after the treatment where you can discuss further treatments or decide to leave it as is.

What side effects can I expect?

After a Bellafill injection, you may feel pain, discomfort or bruising. This tends to resolve itself within about a week. Other possible side effects are less common; redness, swelling, sensitivity, rash or itching. If you feel a lump or any unusual skin reaction, contact Dr. Sharma directly. He will be able to treat the problem swiftly and efficiently.

Can Bellafill address my wrinkle type?

Over time, we lose volume in our faces, and folds and wrinkles may appear. Bellafill can help slow down the natural aging process by treating wrinkles brought on by loss of volume and as a result of gravity. It replaces lost volume in the skin below the wrinkle or fold, in part by helping the body regrow tissue lost through aging. Upon insertion, the collagen instantly adds volume to smooth away facial wrinkles referred to as smile lines. As time goes on, the PMMA microspheres help your skin recreate a stronger construction naturally, resulting in beautiful, younger looking skin.

Can Bellafill treat acne scars?

Acne scars can be difficult to treat. This is because chronic inflammation destroys the normal skin tissue, leaving pits and scars behind. This causes asymmetry in the skin. Both women and men can be self-conscious about these scars. In women, the scars are hard to cover up with makeup, as the pits become even more visible under a foundation base. Bellafill is the only FDA-approved dermal filler for use on acne scars. It adds volume to the skin, smoothing pitted acne scars and lifting them to the level of the surrounding skin.

Bellafill can also be used for the décolletage, hands, buttock dimpling, knees and elbows.

Are there any patients who should avoid Bellafill?

Bellafill should not be administered to patients who are allergic to bovine products or lidocaine. To be safe, Dr. Sharma will always invite patients for a skin patch test before treatment to avoid any issues with allergies.

Why choose Bellafill?

The financial advantages of Bellafill continue to be a main attraction for both men and women looking for long lasting and natural ways to corral the aging process. Prompt correction is visible after the first treatment, and results continue well past five years following just one treatment. In one of the largest ever cosmetic dermatology studies, Bellafill safely reduced smile lines for five years. In Dr. Sharma’s personal opinion, Bellafill is one of the only true anti-aging prevention treatments around, offering a brand new degree of filler rejuvenation.
