Bellafill®​ in Indian Wells

Not all dermal fillers are the same. At Desert Med Aesthetics, Dr. Doriana Cosgrove offers a wide range of injectable dermal filler options to suit the unique needs of every patient. In addition to hyaluronic acid-based fillers like Juvéderm® or Calcium derived products like Radiesse®, Desert Med Aesthetics also offers Bellafill. This unique rejuvenation injectable stimulates collagen to add volume and structure to areas displaying wrinkles and creases. It is primarily used for filling acne scars and has FDA clearance/indication for 10 years (in acne scars).

What Causes Facial Wrinkles?

Facial wrinkles can be formed in distinct ways: volume loss, repetitive movements, and sun damage.

The face loses volume over time (volume loss can be attributed to fat loss and bone deterioration), which increases the chances for wrinkles and folds to appear.

Our reaction to life’s experience can also affect the appearance of the face. Smiling, laughing, and frowning are all repeated movements that create fine lines that eventually develop into wrinkles and deep creases across the face. These “dynamic” wrinkles appear differently on every face and can start developing while an individual is still in their young adult years. As these types of wrinkles tend to change and reoccur even with treatments, permanently removing these creases can be an ineffective and costly venture that requires regular retreatment.

When it comes to finding the right solution for your specific wrinkles, you can trust Dr. Cosgrove to help you explore all available options. For patients experiencing the effects of gravitational wrinkles, Bellafill can offer long-term rejuvenation that looks natural and lasts.

What is Bellafill?

While relatively new to the dermal filler market, Bellafill is a collagen-based injectable that is FDA-approved to eliminate smile lines for up to five years. This impressive longevity is due in part to the gel’s unique formula.

Bellafill injections contain tiny microspheres made from polymethyl methacrylate. These microspheres create a new foundation and stimulate long-term collagen growth. In the years following the procedure, your body’s natural collagen will begin to grow following the injection pattern, filling in gaps left by wrinkles and even acne scarring.

What Is the Bellafill Treatment Process Like?

Like other dermal fillers available at Desert Med Aesthetics, your consultation visit will determine whether this injectable is the best solution for helping you achieve your ideal appearance. During this visit with Dr. Cosgrove, we’ll discuss areas of concern and explore all available treatment solutions. As Bellafill is only minimally invasive, this solution may be used on its own or in combination with other cosmetic procedures to ensure you reach your cosmetic goals.

Although Bellafill contains a small amount of lidocaine, we want to ensure your visit is a pleasant and virtually pain-free experience. During the treatment process, Dr. Cosgrove will apply a local anesthetic to the area receiving injection. To place the injection, our Indian Wells cosmetic specialist will use a blunt-tip cannula. This helps reduce chances of bruising and sensitivity post-treatment.

Depending on the depth of the scarring or wrinkles, some individuals may undergo several sessions in order to reach their ideal appearance. Your unique Bellafill treatment will be developed during your visit with Dr. Cosgrove.
