The First Filler To Last 5 Years

Posted by Sara Barrett on Oct 20, 2015 10:00:00 AM

Injectables and dermal fillers continue to gain popularity each year. Treatments are extremely effective and involve minimal downtime, making them the go-to non-surgical treatment for volume loss and wrinkle reduction.  Earlier this year, Juvederm Voluma broke into the market for mid-face volume with results lasting up to two years. Which at the time was longer than any other injectable on the market.

Earlier this month Sunveva announced that BellaFill is now the only FDA approved dermal filler effective for up to 5 years. The study is the largest and longest dermal filler study ever conducted. It involved 1000 patients across the US. At the 5 year mark, no serious adverse events were reported and 83% of patient treated with BellaFill were still “satisfied” to “very satisfied” with their results.

BellaFill works by replacing volume loss in the skin – either due to aging or even acne scarring.  Just this year BellaFill was FDA approved in the treatment for acne scars and has become a favorite of both physcian’s and patients.

The collagen in the product adds immediate volume while the microspheres remain in place – which increases the production of your own natural collagen. BellaFill is the longest lasting filler on the market – and unlike most dermal fillers, the results only continue to improve with time.

Fix Under Eye Circles with BellaFill®

Posted by Sara Barrett on Aug 11, 2015 2:35:53 PM

It seems easy to find tricks and tips for combating under-eye puffiness, but we know that some of you suffer from another issue: eyes that look sunken and hollow, especially for those who have more slender faces. However, there is help for those who may be genetically predisposed to hollow eyes or have lost soft tissue and bone density, which can make the eyes appear sunken. 

Fix it with BellaFill:

At the first signs of hollowing, using a filler such as hyaluronic acid or fat can help to fill in the spots that appear in the tear troughs. Fillers like Bellafill (previously named ArteFill)  are extremely effective in filling deficient areas under the eyes when it is injected deep into the tissue. BellaFill is different from temporary injectable wrinkle fillers. The unique microspheres in BellaFill are not absorbed by the body and provide the support your skin needs for natural, long lasting results.

FDA Approved Treatment for Acne Scars

Posted by Sara Barrett on Feb 19, 2015 9:54:00 AM

The FDA has approved Bellafill, an injectable filler, for the treatment of moderate to severe acne scars. Acne is the most common skin disorder in the U.S., affecting more than 40 million people, and this is big news for people with severe cases or lingering scars.

This new treatment is ideal for patients who have not responded to topical therapy, like Retin-A, which takes months and only improves very superficial scars; those who do not want to go through a series of five chemical peels; or those who have only a few scars.

If done properly, most patients will require only one or two treatments. And it’s permanent.

Bellafill incorporates both collagen and polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) microspheres. The collagen provides immediate volume and lift. Over time, it’s absorbed by the body, while the microspheres remain as filler. In a study of the filler on patients with acne, 85 percent of 147 subjects rated their appearance as improved at six months, and 90 percent were satisfied at 12 months.

For the past eight years, the FDA-approved version of this injectable was called ArteFill, and it was officially cleared as a permanent filler for nasolabial folds, a.k.a. smile lines. BellaFill is still used for full face-rejuvenation, volume restoration, smile lines, and under eye correction for hollowness and dark circles
