BellaFill® in Phoenix, AZ
Nasolabial folds, also known as smile lines, are some of the most frustrating types of creases that develop as we age. At Arizona Facial Plastics, board-certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon, Dr. Farhan Taghizadeh, recommends BellaFill® for men and women in Phoenix, Scottsdale, Paradise Valley and nearby areas of Arizona who want to soften smile lines.
What is BellaFill®?
BellaFill® is a dermal filler that stimulates collagen production to soften smile lines, as well as reduce acne scars. Collagen is one of the most valuable proteins in the human body, and it gives the skin structure and resilience. As we age, our bodies lose more collagen than what is produced naturally, and this is how we develop nasolabial folds around the nose and mouth. BellaFill® contains microspheres of polymethyl methacrylate in a gel. These microspheres not only give the skin an immediate lift but also trigger collagen production. Over time, the microspheres are absorbed by the body, leaving behind new collagen.
How Much Does BellaFill® Cost?
The cost of your BellaFill® treatment is determined during the consultation once Dr. Taghizadeh determines how much of the product is needed. For your convenience, we offer several payment options, including financing through CareCredit® and Prosper Healthcare Lending.
What are the Benefits of BellaFill®?
- Recommended for men and women as early as their 20s
- No downtime
- Treatment takes less than 30 minutes
- Results last up to five years for smile lines and one year for acne scars
What Should I Expect from BellaFill®?
Dr. Taghizadeh performs all BellaFill® treatments for his patients who want long-lasting results to soften smile lines and other types of wrinkles, or who want their acne scars to be less noticeable. BellaFill® is injected into the skin at a specific depth to maximize the outcome of the treatment. You may feel a slight prick on your skin as the needle is inserted. Otherwise, the treatment is quite comfortable.
You can return to your normal activities after the injections – no downtime is required. Some patients experience temporary swelling, redness, pain, bruising, lumps, bumps, itching or discoloration of the skin near the injection sites. Keep in mind that these symptoms are usually temporary and last one to seven days.
How Long Do the Results of BellaFill® Last?
Men and women in the Phoenix area love BellaFill® treatments at Arizona Facial Plastic because the results last up to five years for wrinkles and one year for acne scars. This does vary by patient, and we recommend follow-up appointments with Dr. Taghizadeh so he can monitor your progress and determine when additional injections are needed to maintain the results.
