What You should know about Bellafill
When your face ages, there are several factors in play. Changes in the skin’s texture such as pores and wrinkles, and skin pigmentation or hyperpigmentation are common maladies of the aging process. These result from:
- Age-related issues such as collagen loss and/or thinning dermis
- Facial muscle over-activity
- Sun or UV damage
However, in most cases, these different skin issues can be improved by a number of procedures or treatments such as:
- Botox (neuromodulators)
- Chemical peels
- Skin care regimens that include growth factors and some type of retinoid (Retin A)
Despite all of the above information regarding these different skin issues, the primary reason that a person’s face begins to look old is a result of losing volume. As you age, bone, fat, and muscle are lost and this eventually leads to a number of different conditions including:
- Bags under the eyes
- Cheek grooves
- Lip fullness decreases
- Longer appearing nose
- Loss of a well-defined jawline
- Loss of or sagging cheeks
- Pointy chin
- Tear troughs
- Upper eyebrows and eyelids drooping
In many instances, patients will not have to undergo any type of surgical procedure and be improved with Bellafill treatments done by Dr. Alan Burke, MD. While the product is referred to as a dermal filler, it is actually a collagen stimulator.
When injected, Bellafill stimulates the production of collagen, which can last for years when it is not subject to breakdown by the aging process, oxygen radicals, and UV exposure. This helps to stave off wrinkles for a longer period.
