A smile is the most beautiful thing a woman can wear… but what about smile lines?
Experience long-lasting improvement in the appearance of smile lines and other tell-tale signs of aging with Bellafill expertly injected by Dr. Oscar Hevia.
What is Bellafill?
Bellafill is a semi-permanent dermal filler that can stimulate collagen and provide lasting results for up to five years. It can be used to restore volume and rejuvenate many areas of the face. It can help lift the cheeks, define the jawline, lift the corners of the mouth to a more neutral position, add volume to a disappearing chin, and diminish the appearance of smile lines.
Bellafill contains tiny PMMA (polymethyl methacrylate) microspheres within a smooth collagen gel. Over time, your body uses the microspheres to stimulate its own natural collagen, resulting in a more youthful version of you!
What You Can Expect During Your Visit
During your consultation, Dr. Hevia will recommend a filler or combination of fillers that will suit you and your individual needs. If Bellafill is recommended, an in-office skin test will be performed on your forearm to determine whether you have a sensitivity to bovine collagen. Although having a collagen allergy is extremely rare, this skin test and one-month waiting period are mandatory steps at our office to ensure your safety before you enjoy the rejuvenating results of your treatment.
Once we have confirmed that you do not have a collagen sensitivity, you can safely proceed with your Bellafill dermal filler treatment! With the help of a bit of numbing cream and Dr. Hevia’s expert technique, you’ll receive instant gratification with immediate results. In addition, your very own cells will be stimulated to produce collagen in the injected areas, meaning you will be able to enjoy your results for up to five years. Now that is something to smile about!
