Bellafill® is a long-lasting dermal filler that can immediately reduce the appearance of certain facial lines, wrinkles, and acne scars. Because of the product’s design, it can also continue to improve the treated areas, promoting your body’s own skin cell production for a more youthful appearance.
Dr. Lenore Sikorski offers Mission Viejo and Orange County patients Bellafill as an alternative to more frequent treatments. Because of its extended duration, Dr. Sikorski injects the product very conservatively, in limited amounts, and only in specific areas. Her expertise with fillers such as Bellafill means that you can expect subtle change with significant improvement.
An Overview of Bellafill
As you get older, you may notice that the lines that run from the side of your nose to the corner of your mouth have become more visible. While there may be several causes, one of the most common is that the fat pads that give your cheeks natural youthfulness may have begun shifting downward. The result: prominent “smile lines,” or nasolabial folds, which can age your appearance.
Bellafill is a facial filler that is FDA-approved for smoothing away smile lines. It:
- Restores the volume you’ve lost in these areas.
- Delivers special microspheres that help your skin develop a firmer structure.
Dr. Sikorski provides Bellafill to Mission Viejo and OC patients as a no-downtime treatment with lasting and noticeable results. Patients may also benefit from Bellafill in other facial areas, such as the temples and marionette lines.
The Benefits of Bellafill
Mission Viejo and Orange County dermatologist, Dr. Sikorski uses Bellafill because of the aesthetic improvement it can offer and the advantages it provides compared to some other facial fillers.
Duration. Bellafill can reduce the appearance of smile lines for five years. This is one of the longest periods of effectiveness for any dermal filler. If “filler fatigue” is setting in after receiving years of treatment, Bellafill can significantly reduce the amount of office visits and expenses you may face.
Dual effect. Bellafill isn’t just for correcting the signs of aging that are visible during your treatment. It also supports your body’s collagen production, helping to improve the treated area for months to follow.
No downtime. After your Bellafill treatment in our Mission Viejo and Orange County area office, you can return to your normal daily activities. You won’t be limited by discomfort or a lengthy recovery, and the most common side effects typically resolve within a week.
The speed of results. You will immediately see improved volume and reduced signs of aging in the areas that Dr. Sikorski treats. These results should continue to improve over the weeks that follow as collagen regenerates.
Your Experience with Bellafill
Schedule an initial consultation with Dr. Sikorski. During your visit, she will take the time to talk with you about the goals you’d like to achieve and the specific concerns you would like to address.
Dr. Sikorski will conduct an examination of the sites that you want to improve and demonstrate how changes in certain areas can give you a more youthful and refreshed appearance. She will also discuss the different treatment options our practice has available. If you are a candidate for Bellafill, she will develop a treatment plan based on your needs and answer any questions you have about the filler.
Unless you have a medical need to delay treatment or there are other limitations, you can receive Bellafill on the same day as your initial consultation:
- Dr. Sikorski and our team may offer several measures for your comfort during the process, including numbing cream, ice, and sedation. Bellafill also includes a small amount of lidocaine to decrease sensitivity and pain.
- Dr. Sikorski will conduct the injections in the targeted sites.
- Afterward, you can go back to your normal activities.
You should see an immediate correction in the areas of treatment and benefits that last for years to come. If you have been receiving dermal fillers on an ongoing basis for your smile lines, temples, or marionette lines, consider an effective and more convenient alternative.
