Belafill (formerly Artefill) Wrinkle Treatment Before and After Photos

Wrinkles and blemishes are some dreaded imperfections that become inevitable with the aging process. The skin’s ability to repair itself declines with aging as the inner layer of the skin tends to thin out and the fat cells shrink to leave frown lines and crow’s feet. The repeated use of facial muscles causes fine lines near the corners of the mouth, better known as nasolabial folds. Pre-mature aging can have a negative impact on your self-esteem as you may find it difficult to accept along with the added pressure of social rejection. In the past anti-aging dermal fillers were used to fill in the facial lines. The inconvenience of getting frequent refills makes Belafill a much sought after permanent dermal filler, which unlike the temporary fillers does not get fully absorbed into the body.

What is Belafill Wrinkle treatment?

Belafill is an aesthetic wrinkle correction procedure that tends to improve the skin texture right from the first injection. The Polymethyl Methacrylate (PMMA) micro-spheres suspended in the bovine collagen gel are injected into the nasolabial folds or the fine lines that begin under the nose to reach the corners of the mouth. The micro-spheres trigger the production of natural collagen in the body as they continue providing a firm foundation long after they have been injected into the nasolabial folds. A volume-less face gets an instant facelift with an Belafill Wrinkle correction treatment. PMMA with its proven safety record in treating a variety of ailments like cataracts, artificial joints, has been used for cosmetic soft tissue augmentation over a period of ten years. It is advisable to wait for six months before opting for another Belafill  treatment as its effects start showing up a bit slowly as the body continues building tissue. Small dosages injected at carefully spaced intervals will bring out the best results. You can also ask your doctor to show you some before and after photos of the treatment.

After the treatment

An Belafill  Wrinkle treatment at a med spa usually requires one or two sessions as it is a safe and non-invasive procedure. This in-house procedure takes an hour or two to administer as Belafill  is administered in accordance with the facial fold assessment scale. A minimum grade of one requires half a syringe of Belafill  whereas a grade 5 needs two syringes to be injected into the fold. The effects of wrinkle correction can be observed right after the procedure as there is an instant facelift after the Belafill  solution has been injected. A mild swelling and redness at the treatment site is quite common after you have undergone a dermal filling. A mild bruising may sometimes occur at the injection site which is typically found to disappear within three to seven days.   To prevent any allergic reactions after an Belafill  treatment, it is advisable to undergo an allergy test for hypersensitivity to collagen implants or lidocaine in a medical spa. The anti-aging effect that an Belafill  treatment has over the skin is as remarkable as the underlying wrinkle correction process. Patients with a history of allergies to collagen products and anaphylaxis must refrain from Artefill treatment. Belafill  must not be used in and around the mouth or for lip augmentation. The results of an Belafill  wrinkle treatment are permanent and surgical intervention is the only solution to remove collagen for the reversal of the procedure. It is highly advisable to seek the services of a Board registered experienced physician like Dr. Bijan Farah. If you live in or around Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, CA, you can easily get an appointment from him. Belafill  wrinkle treatment before and after photos provided by
