Have you ever looked at yourself in the mirror and wish that you could turn back the hands of time? You are not alone in this feeling. The early signs of aging are a cosmetic issue that plagues everyone at some point in their lives. In time, we all eventually fall victim to the onset of fine lines and wrinkles. Thankfully Balikian Facial Plastic Surgery is here to help you fight back with Bellafill.
Treatment Areas for Bellafill
Bellafill is commonly used for the treatment of nasolabial folds and even acne scars that appear on the cheeks. It has also been shown to be effective in adding volume to the lips, correcting the bags under the eyes, improving nose bumps and minor deviations, and improving the contours of the chin and cheeks.
Preparing For Your Bellafill Treatment
We advise patients to avoid using blood-thinning medications such as Aspirin, Ibuprofen, or Omega-3 Fish Oils for one week before any injection to help decrease the risk of bruising. In addition, avoiding alcohol a few nights before injection and taking the herbal medication arnica may help decrease the risk of bruising. See our page on how we reduce pain and bruising during your procedure by clicking on the link.
Candidates For BellaFill
As a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure, Bellafill is ideally suited for patients who desire an improvement in their facial aesthetic but have no interest in undergoing invasive plastic surgery procedures. You may be advised to avoid the procedure if you are under 21, have severe allergies, and have pre-existing skin conditions. Our skilled team will perform an assessment of your skin and overall health in order to determine if you’d make a good candidate for Bellafill.
