Smooth Away Smile Lines with Bellafill® Injections

Featured Image

Smile lines, also known as nasolabial folds, run from the sides of your nose down to the corners of your mouth. Due to factors like age, sun exposure, and smoking, these lines only deepen and become more noticeable over time. Now, advanced treatments like Bellafill® injections help smooth away these lines and restore a more youthful appearance to your face.

Board-certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Vu Ho understands that smile lines can make you feel self-conscious. Call Beyond Beautiful to see if you're a candidate for Bellafill® in Plano, TX. See why our McKinney and Frisco patients love their results.

How do smile lines form?

Smile lines are caused by a combination of factors such as natural aging, genetics, and environmental influences. Additionally, frequent sun exposure, smoking, and other lifestyle habits can accelerate the appearance of these lines. While over-the-counter creams and serums may claim to reduce nasolabial folds, they often provide minimal results. That's where Bellafill® comes in.

What is Bellafill®?

Bellafill® is a unique dermal filler designed to smooth out smile lines and other facial wrinkles. It's composed of collagen, which provides immediate volume and lift to the skin, and polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) microspheres. These microspheres act as a scaffold to support the production of collagen as time goes on. This makes Bellafill® a long-lasting solution for treating smile lines in Plano.

How is Bellafill® different from other dermal fillers?

Many dermal fillers are made with hyaluronic acid, a molecule found in the body that provides temporary volume to the skin. While these fillers can be effective, they typically last only 6 – 12 months before being metabolized by the body. This means frequent maintenance appointments are needed to maintain results. Bellafill®, on the other hand, provides immediate volume and stays in place for up to five years.

Who is a candidate for Bellafill®?

Bellafill® is ideal for individuals with deep smile lines or other wrinkles, especially those who have tried other fillers with little success. You must also be in good overall health and have realistic expectations about your outcomes. Dr. Ho will evaluate your specific concerns and determine if Bellafill® is right for you during a consultation in Plano. We also offer other treatments for patients near Frisco or McKinney with different concerns or needs.

What is the treatment process like?

Bellafill® injections are a quick, in-office procedure that typically takes less than 30 minutes to complete. Beforehand, Dr. Ho will clean and mark the treatment area before applying a topical anesthetic to minimize potential discomfort. We then carefully administer the product into the nasolabial folds using a fine needle. Afterward, you can resume daily activities with minimal downtime.

What results can I expect from Bellafill®?

You should see an immediate improvement in your smile lines after undergoing Bellafill® injections. However, the full results will continue to develop as your skin produces new collagen over time. Our patients at Beyond Beautiful look and feel more youthful with smoother, more natural-looking skin. We encourage you to protect yourself from the sun and maintain a healthy lifestyle to maximize your outcomes.
