Bellafill is a dermal filler that plumps the skin to smooth away smile lines and nasolabial folds and treats acne scars for both women and men. Bellafill is an FDA-approved non-resorbable filler with a mix of collagen, lidocaine and acrylic microspheres (polymethyl methacrylate or PMMA).
New patients for a Bellafill Rancho Mirage procedure should take an allergy test on an arm a month before their first injection.
The allergy test is recommended based on the fact that Bellafill is composed of 80 percent bovine (cow) collagen. Once you are injected, your body absorbs the collagen which will help to smooth your smile lines for up to five years and/or treat your acne scars for up to a year.
The best candidates for Bellafill Palm Springs are people who are not allergic to lidocaine, PMMA, or bovine collagen.
Pregnant women, people with have a positive reaction to the allergic skin test or have a history of allergies or hypersensitivity or a tendency for thick scar formation should avoid Bellafill.
You may experience some lumpiness, minor pain, redness, swelling or tenderness for 24 hours after your treatment.
Some bruising may last up to a week. Some other side effects could include some lumps, persistent redness or swelling, sensitivity at the injection site, and itching and rash after a couple of days.
