FDA approved dermal filler

Belafill has the distinct reputation of being the only FDA approved permanent dermal filler. The approval came through in October, 2006 after a series of clinical trials conducted at medical centers spread across the nation. The trials that spanned over 12 months came up with results that showed a remarkably longer duration of wrinkle correction with Belafill as opposed to the temporary dermal fillers. The follow up studies at regular intervals of six months and later after a year showed prolonged as well as safe wrinkle correction. A follow up of this study completed 5 years to prove the long term efficacy of Belafill . Since then Belafill has become the official permanent nonabsorbent wrinkle filler. The Polymethyl Methacrylate (PMMA) micro-spheres suspended in the bovine collagen gel do not get absorbed by the body. The solution is injected just above the skin’s fat layer with a fine needle and the quantity used depends on the depth of the wrinkles. The appropriate amount to be injected is decided by the Board certified physician at a medical spa.
