Belafill (formerly Artefill) Wrinkle Treatment – Reduce Wrinkles and Aging

Tag Archives: Artefill Wrinkle Treatment

Wrinkles are an inevitable consequence of the aging process. There are many factors that come into play to cause this dreaded imperfection. Exposure to ultraviolet rays is the primary cause behind premature aging. Continuous exposure to sunlight, air pollution and smoking have a damaging effect on the collagen fibers, known as the building blocks of the skin. Excessive strain on the facial muscles causes the development of furrows beneath the skin. The facial skin gradually loses elasticity as you struggle with expressions that never tend to change. Dermal fillers have been a respite for folks trying to counter laughing lines, although they need to be re-administered at regular intervals

Belafill wrinkle treatment

Belafill, of late has emerged as long term anti-aging solution for wrinkle problems as this micro-sphere enriched collagen filler lasts longer than a temporary dermal filler. The dual action of the bovine collagen in Belafill works on the wrinkles and gets effectively absorbed by the body leaving the Polymethyl Methacrylate (PMMA) micro-spheres unbroken to provide long lasting support to the sagging nasolabial folds. PMMA micro-spheres suspended in the bovine collagen gel have been found to stimulate the production of natural collagen in the body as they effectively fill the facial wrinkles. A patch test wherein some collagen is placed on the patient’s forearm is conducted weeks in advance to ensure that the patient is not allergic to bovine collagen. The procedure of injecting the Artefill solution requires about an hour at a medical spa. Artefill Wrinkle Treatment - Reduce Wrinkles and AgingBelafill  can only be procured by physicians who have undergone product training. The mode of administering Belafill  is similar to that of temporary dermal fillers at a med spa. It requires two or three sessions, depending on the depth of the fine lines and wrinkles. The minimum downtime required for the procedure is an added convenience as you can resume your routine within a few hours after the treatment.

What makes it different?

Belafill is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure for a facelift within a fraction of the time required in an invasive facelift surgical operation. Temporary dermal fillers do not have a lasting effects as the natural or synthetic ingredients in the composition get completely absorbed by the body within nine months. On the other hand, the micro-sphere enhanced Belafill  solution stays intact in the skin to prevent the wrinkles from resurfacing back too soon. It not only evens out the grooves beneath the skin, but also provides structural support for a fine natural look. The cost of an Belafill  treatment varies between $1000-$1500 per syringe, depending on the goals of the procedure. The desired results may be achieved in a single sitting or may require multiple sessions at a med spa with weekly intervals. The average cost of a 0.8 ml Artefill syringe is around $1200. The final expenses of an Belafill treatment are subject to the expertise of the injecting physician and the number of syringes required to attain the desired cosmetic results.
