Is Bellafill® Right for Me?
Like other dermal fillers, Bellafill® plumps the skin to add volume to the lines, folds, and wrinkles around the nose and mouth. It also works to help patients boost their own collagen production to maintain the youthful appearance for a longer period. If you want to look younger without the periodic maintenance of other dermal fillers and injectables, Bellafill® may be right for you. In addition to Bellafill®, there are many other dermal fillers offered by Dr. Wallace at New Reflections Cosmetic Surgery Center. Please be aware that it is necessary to have a skin test to detect any allergy to lidocaine or bovine collagen.
Elements of Bellafill® Treatments
Prior to receiving Bellafill® treatments, Dr. Wallace tests patients to ensure they are not allergic to lidocaine or bovine collagen. From there, the treatments are administered with injections into the targeted area(s) of the face to create a smoother complexion. Dr. Wallace injects the right amount of filler into the areas to achieve the desired look. Bellafill® injections may be performed at the same time other treatments are performed. While many patients may achieve their desired look with only one treatment, others may require two separate treatments spread out about four to six weeks.
How Much Does Bellafill® Cost in Dallas?
The cost of Bellafill® injections varies with each patient depending on the extent of the treatment needed to achieve the desired look as well as whether other treatments are performed at the same time.
