Have you ever wished that your skin looked as vibrant as you feel, or wondered if there was a way to lessen the natural effects of aging on the skin? Beyond preventative measures such as wearing sun-screen or avoiding too much exposure to the sun, as well as removing unhealthy habits such as tobacco and alcohol, there are also products such as Artefill/Bellafill on the market that allow patients to take a proactive approach to looking their best.
Our patients love ArteFill/Bellafill because it is non-invasive and combines collagen therapy with polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) technology. The PMMA is approximately 20% and collagen 80%. This can result in permanent improvements to volume and is often utilized off-label in boosting the collagen-deficient areas all over the body. When keeping in mind proper technique and conservative application, doctors are able to maximize the results for their patients.
Although Artefill was approved in Europe as early as 1994, it wasn’t FDA approved in the U.S. until 2006 for nasolabial folds (smile lines) and earlier in 2016 for correction of acne scars of the face. Artefill has been renamed Bellafill on the cosmetic market.
Advanced Surgical Arts performs Artefill/Bellafill injections for patients from the Dallas area including the surrounding cities of Plano, Allen, Frisco, McKinney, Tx in order to treat wrinkles and facial fat loss, as well as scarring.
