Can Bellafill® Move? No movement has been shown to occur. It would not be expected to occur since there really is not anything to shift: PMMA micro droplets (microspheres of 30-40 microns) are surrounded by the patient's own collagen.
While Bellafill can be molded a little bit right when it is being injected, after about an hour it will no longer move and it will remain in place. If your injection was recent then you are likely experiencing changes due to swelling that can change the shape of your lips for about 3 weeks after your treatment.
Due to the microsphere support structure, your skin will continue to improve for 12 months, and patients have a 90% satisfaction rate at this point. It's likely that even after 5 years your skin will continue to look healthy and smooth. Many people experience results that can last as long as 8-10 years after injection.
Granulomas, lumps, and swelling have been reported in Bellafill® patients and may form years after injection. Granulomas, lumps, and swelling frequently resolve over time or with treatment.
The duration of improvement with Bellafill® varies between patients. Results are usually visible immediately, but take 2-4 weeks to settle in. Bellafill® contains non-absorbable PMMA microspheres.
Answer: After performing thousands of syringes of Bellafill over the last 7 years, half of my patients returning 9-12 months later notice that their Bellafill looks even better than after the initial treatment.
Common side effects include swelling, bruising, tenderness, redness, or slight bleeding at the injection site. It's possible but rare to develop an infection at the injection site. In rare cases, the microspheres can cause lumps, also known as granulomas, by forming scar tissue under the skin.
Answer: Bellafill bumps on face
These are usually treatable using 5FU and Kenalog. If this doesn't work, excision needs to be done.
Granulomas and nodules that develop following Bellafill injections can be managed with a series of injections of triamcinolone and 5FU, which are designed to shrink the nodules down. Surgery is a possible, yet infrequent, course of action for granulomas.
Hyaluronidase will not help with fillers such as Radiesse, Bellafill, and Sculptra. In certain patients, a steroid injection may help reverse the effects of some of these fillers to an extent, but the only surefire way to “undo” the results of these fillers is to wait for them to be absorbed by the body.
As a 5-year filler, Bellafill won't go away nearly as fast as Restylane or Juvederm. Many doctors only prefer Restylane and Juvederm, not because these temporary fillers are any better than Bellafill, but because they know that if they make a mistake, a temporary filler goes away quicker.
For instance, a 39 year old with deep lines might achieve full correction with just 1 or 2 filler syringes whereas at age 66, the same person might require 4 or 5 syringes to adequately treat the same areas.
How many syringes of Bellafill do I need to achieve fullness int the apple of the cheek? Bellafill for the cheek apple will usually take 1 to 2 syringes per side. It is important for the provider to understand that Bellafill can be placed quite superficially.
The original collagen injections for wrinkles almost always made lumps that dissipated at 3 months. Since Bellafill is mostly collagen, it is not unusual for Bellafill to make lumps that you can feel.
Dr. Nichols notes that because most fillers are semi-permanent, they will be metabolized and broken down; hyaluronic acid-based fillers for instance, take nine to 12 months on average to dissolve on their own. While it may not look great, lip filler migration, for instance, rarely leads to serious compilations.
TAKEAWAY. Experiencing lumps in lips after injectable filler is extremely common—and lumps most often resolve naturally with time. Gentle lip massage 5-7 days after the treatment can help smooth any lumps and bumps in the lips.
You may experience temporary swelling, redness, pain, bruising, lumps/bumps, itching, and discoloration at the treatment site. These side effects are usually transient and typically resolve within 1–7 days. You may experience lumps/bumps/papules that may occur more than one month after injection and that may persist.
You should start noticing some of the results of Bellafill almost immediately. The first effect is the smoothening out of the skin due to the microspheres stimulating your collagen production. Immediately after the procedure, you might notice some swelling in the injection site. This can last for up to two weeks.
The most common cause of lumps after a filler treatment is swelling and bruising from the injections themselves. These should naturally subside within the first week.
Bellafill can last five years without requiring maintenance treatments. Sculptra can last up to two years but requires some follow-up from a physician. Bellafill also gives immediate results that tend to get better over time. If you want to learn which dermal filler is right for you, we encourage you to speak with Dr.
Collagen Types I and III are predominant forms found in the skin. Bellafill stimulates both Type I and Type III collagen for long-lasting correction.
It is especially great at improving the upper and mid-face to a youthful size and shape, which results in an improvement of the appearance of under-eye hollows, temples, sallow cheeks, deep nasolabial folds, as well as jowls.
In my experience with performing a high volume of Bellafill treatments for many years, I find that not only can Bellafill last 5 years, but as a collagen stimulator, Bellafill also gives a more natural appearance than hyaluronic acid fillers like Juvederm and Restylane.
Answer: Q: Can you get a facelift after having Bellafil injections? Yes, you can have a facelift after having any filler injections. If the filler has not achieved any significant volume addition your surgeon can also add more volume with other synthetic fillers, implants or your own fat.
