Are you unhappy with your current appearance? At Spa Black in San Antonio, TX, our Bellafill injectables will provide you with a long-lasting, safe, and incredibly effective way of helping you look your best.
How Long Does Bellafill Last?
Aging causes a lot of changes in your body. This includes changes to the texture and appearance of your skin. While these changes are natural and unavoidable, they may end up making you feel unhappy with the way you look. But don’t worry, there’s a way for you to get the youthful appearance that you once had back.
Bella fill is an incredibly effective and long-lasting dermal filler. Unlike many injectables and fillers that only last a few months, many patients who receive this treatment are able to maintain their results for up to five years.
What Is Bellafill?
If this sounds like it might just be the perfect treatment for you, then you’re probably wondering what exactly it is and how it works. This dermal filler contains two main things. The first is collagen, a naturally occurring chemical in your skin and other parts of your body.
The other thing you’ll find inside the filler is very small beads called polymethyl methacrylate, or PMMA. This filler provides you with a way that’s non-invasive, safe, and incredibly effective to help get rid of unwanted wrinkles and sagging. It can also be used to help add definition and contouring to certain parts of the face.
How Does It Work?
This is an injectable, which means that our technicians will use an extremely small needle to inject the product into your skin. The needle is so fine and each injection contains a small amount of the painkiller lidocaine that the treatment process is virtually painless.
The collagen inside the filler helps restore your skin’s structure, making it firmer and smoother. Over time, your skin will naturally absorb the collagen present in the injection. This is where the PMMA beads come into play. They will remain in your skin, continuing to provide you with that firm, supple look long after the collagen has gone away.
What Causes Changes to the Skin?
Getting an injectable like this one is a great way to combat unwanted changes that you may have noticed in your appearance and maintain a youthful, healthy look. But why does your skin change so much throughout your life in the first place? Many factors can contribute to skin aging.
The primary factor is the amount of collagen naturally present in your skin. When you’re young, there are very high levels of collagen. But as you get older, those levels will start to diminish. This results in wrinkles since collagen is what gives your skin its structure. Wrinkles and skin sagging can appear much more quickly when this is combined with things like unprotected sun exposure and unhealthy lifestyle habits like drinking alcohol excessively and smoking.
What Does It Treat?
You can use this filler to treat a variety of issues. Some of the most common areas where the filler may be applied include the following:
Wrinkles and Fine Lines
As your skin’s structure begins to weaken and the amount of collagen present becomes less and less, you’ll find your skin starting to wrinkle. This filler is a great way to smooth out those unwanted wrinkles and lines, giving you a more youthful appearance.
This filler is particularly good for nasolabial folds, or the wrinkles that run from the corners of your nose down towards your mouth.
If you’ve ever had a poor night’s sleep, then you’re familiar with those unwanted dark circles that can appear under your eyes. But the older you get, the more you may notice that those bags just won’t go away.
The eye area is one of the first to show major signs of aging. This is because the skin is much thinner, meaning a loss of collagen is more noticeable. The bags that show up as a result will make you look perpetually tired. This filler is a fantastic way to eliminate those bags.
As your skin loses collagen, it also loses volume. One of the main places you’ll notice this is the cheek area. As you’ve gotten older, you may have noticed your face looking thinner and thinner, which can age your appearance considerably.
Getting this injectable is a fantastic way of putting volume and fullness back into your cheeks for a more supple appearance.
Like your cheeks, it’s very common to lose fullness in the chin area. If you already have a naturally weak chin, then the eventual loss of volume due to aging will only exacerbate the problem.
If you’d like to have a stronger chin, then this filler can help. The collagen will provide fullness to the area and once your body has absorbed that, the microspheres that remain will help you maintain your results.
Do you have thin lips? Or maybe aging has caused you to lose a lot of the volume you used to have. Regardless of the reason why your lips are thin, thin lips might make you look much more serious than you’d like.
The collagen and microspheres inside the filler will help you put some fullness into your lips. This will make them look larger and plumper. The injectable can also be used as a great way to give your lips some more definition.
Nose Bumps and Deviations
If your nose isn’t quite straight or it has some bumps that you don’t like the look of, then this filler can help. You’ll get natural-looking results when you receive this filler, and a straighter, more defined nose.
All About the Treatment
When you visit our Spa in San Antonio, you can trust that you’ll be receiving effective treatment from caring technicians. Here’s a little more about what you can expect from your visit to our clinic and the treatment process.
First, we’ll set up a consultation with you. We’ll need to do that as it gives us the chance to discuss what results you’d like to see and help you set your expectations. During this time, we’ll go over your medical history as well as what treatments you’ve received in the past to make sure this is the right treatment for you.
Don’t be afraid to ask us any questions during your consultation. We want to make sure you are fully informed about every step of the process so that you can feel comfortable with your decision.
How to Prepare
Before your appointment comes, we’ll give you a full list of instructions that you’ll need to follow to ensure your treatment is safe and effective. Don’t worry, the instructions won’t be complicated.
The main thing is to avoid anything that could cause your skin to bruise. You’ll need to stop taking certain medications and supplements like aspirin and ibuprofen. You’ll also need to stop drinking or smoking for the day or two before your appointment
What Happens at the Appointment?
When the day of your appointment comes, we’ll start by carefully cleaning your skin. Removing any oils or grime on the skin will help ensure that the process is safe and that no bacteria can enter the injection site.
Once we’ve cleaned your skin, Dr. Jeneby at our med spa in San Antonio will begin applying the product. Multiple strategic injections will be used to help you get the results you want. Treatment is generally very fast, and most appointments take less than an hour. You’ll be able to leave once your treatment is done.
After the Treatment
As soon as your treatment is complete, you’ll see a noticeable but still natural-looking change to your appearance. After treatment, make sure that you avoid strenuous physical activity and anything that could make you sweat excessively. You’ll also want to stay out of direct sunlight.
Most patients are able to enjoy their results from this filler for up to 5 years. Keeping up with your regular skincare routine and maintaining an overall healthy and active lifestyle will keep your treatment lasting longer.
