Lips lines have always been challenging to injectors. Prior to Bellafill, the fillers I used to treat the lip lines around the mouth were hyaluronic acid fillers; Juvederm, Restylane, Belatero, etc. Hyaluronic fillers plump up an area and attract water to the surface of skin often creating a swollen look. After 6-9 months the hyaluronic acid goes away and the lines return to what they looked like before the filler.
By injecting Bellafill, the body is growing collagen in the area around the lips with results lasting 5 years. We are seeing beautiful, natural looking results without any puffiness by filling in the wrinkles with collagen.
The photo below was taken 2 months after a Bellafill treatment for vertical lip lines. Collagen stimulation takes about 3 weeks and continues to improve filling in the lines and smoothing out texture with the new collagen laid down. Unlike a hyaluronic filler, after the 5 years of Bellafill results do not go back to baseline. The new collagen production and renewed skin-tone is yours to keep!
