As people age, the skin wears from the effects of time and gravity. Nasolabial folds, or more commonly known as “smile lines” may begin to occur as the result of any loss of facial volume and skin elasticity. Some people may also begin to notice any scarring acne might have left behind. Both cases may generate some self-consciousness and discomfort. Dr. Russo in Boston Bellafill is used as a solution for smile lines and scars from acne.

What is Bellafill?
Bellafill is a smooth, collagen-based dermal filler with polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) microspheres. Collagen is the main structural protein found in the skin and other tissues. The collagen gel in Bellafill grants fast volume and lifts the skin to correct any wrinkling and acne scars. Once the Bellafill Boston surgeon has injected, these microspheres create a base of structural support for smoother-looking skin.

How Does Bellafill Work?
For immediate and long-lasting results, Bellafill is comprised of a blend of two unique components. Within the smooth collagen gel base are tiny polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) microspheres. As Bellafill is injected, the collagen quickly adds natural-looking volume to rejuvenate acne scars or smile lines. In time, your body will use the PMMA microspheres as a support for its own collagen, establishing a foundation for long-lasting smoothness.
