Does Bellafill Really Last for Five Years?

If you’re looking for an easy way to achieve lasting changes in your skin, you’re in luck. At Gold Skin Care Center in Nashville, Tennessee, we can improve your skin with Bellafill. This injectable product is an excellent way to improve your wrinkles and pitted acne scars, and the results of your treatment are likely to last for a significant period of time. Read on to learn more about the benefits of this fantastic product.

Does Bellafill Really Last for Five Years?

Bellafill is an FDA-approved injectable product that can minimize your smile lines and acne scars. This product lasts for a much longer period of time than many other injectable treatments. In fact, this treatment can improve the appearance of your smile lines for five years. Further, this treatment is likely to minimize your pitted acne scars for a year.

Proven Results

Scientific evidence demonstrates that this treatment provides noticeable, lasting results. In a study, 90% of people who used this treatment to address acne scars were still satisfied with their results after a year. In another study, 83% of people who used this treatment to minimize their wrinkles were satisfied with their results after five years.

A Frustrating Issue

This innovative treatment is a very efficient way to enhance your skin. If you’ve used injectable products before, you already know that many of these treatments do not last for very long. In fact, many injectable products will wear off after three to four months.

Since these injectables will only enhance your skin for a short period of time, you’ll have to receive regular touch-up sessions to maintain your improvements. If you have a demanding schedule, you will struggle to fit these appointments into your calendar.

A Better Option

Fortunately, you don’t have to receive regular follow-up treatments when you use Bellafil to improve your skin. Instead, you can receive a single set of injections. Since the results of this treatment are likely to last for many years, you won’t have to spend a significant amount of time and energy to maintain your new look.

Why Do I Have Acne Scars and Wrinkles?


When you are young, your skin is moist and smooth. At this point in your life, you have high levels of collagen in your skin. Collagen is the most abundant protein in your skin. This fibrous substance helps your skin stay youthful and firm.

Over time, your collagen levels will naturally decline. As you age, continued exposure to sunlight will also degrade the collagen in your skin. As your collagen levels decrease, your skin will become weaker and less elastic. As a result, repeated facial expressions will cause you to develop fine lines and wrinkles. In particular, you will develop nasolabial folds, commonly known as smile lines, around your mouth.

Acne Scars

Acne can also cause lasting damage to your skin. Your body uses collagen to fix this damage. When your body doesn’t make enough collagen during the healing process, you will develop pitted acne scars.

There are a variety of factors that can increase your chances of developing acne scars. For instance, inflammatory acne is more likely to harm your skin and cause you to develop scars. Further, picking at your acne or leaving it untreated for a long period of time will increase your chances of scarring. Your genes also affect your skin’s reaction to acne. As a result, your risk of developing acne scars goes up if you have close relatives who experienced this issue.

How Does This Product Work?

This injectable product uses an innovative method to address your wrinkles and acne scars. This solution contains polymethylmethacrylate, or PMMA, microspheres. These small spheres are contained in a collagen gel.

Once we inject the product into your treatment area, the collagen gel will instantly add volume to your skin. This additional volume will minimize your smile lines. Further, this added volume will raise your acne scars and make them less noticeable.

In addition to immediately improving your skin, this treatment will provide you with additional benefits over time. During the next couple of months, the microspheres in the solution will encourage your body to make more collagen. Increasing your collagen levels will strengthen your skin and make you look younger and more attractive.

Will My Injections Be Comfortable?

You’ll receive your injections during a quick appointment in our office in Nashville. Since this product contains lidocaine, you’ll be comfortable during the injection process. Lidocaine is a local anesthetic that will numb your body and help you relax as we administer your injections.

Since this process is very gentle, you will not have any downtime after we complete your treatment. You can return to your usual schedule immediately. That said, you should try to avoid rigorous exercise and exposure to intense heat for a few days. Avoiding these activities will help your body adjust to this treatment.

How Soon Will I See Improvements in My Skin?

Since this product quickly adds volume to your skin, you will see positive changes in your appearance right away. Over the next several months, this injectable product will stimulate your body’s production of collagen. As your collagen levels rise, your skin will continue to improve.

Can Men Use This Injectable Product?

It’s common for men to develop noticeable acne scars and smile lines. A clinical trial demonstrated that this treatment works on men and women. As a result, this product is an excellent option for a man who wants to minimize these issues. Further, since this product’s results are likely to last for a long period of time, this treatment is an ideal choice for a man who is looking for an easy way to enhance his skin.

Can I Buy This Product Online?

You cannot buy this injectable product online. To protect your safety, you must always receive this treatment from a medical professional. Our injectable treatments are performed by a highly trained medical practitioner with extensive training and experience using injectable products in a precise manner, and they will monitor your safety throughout your appointment.

Can I Use Other Options to Treat My Acne Scars?

Bellafill isn’t the only way to minimize your acne scars. At Gold Skin Care Center, we can use many different techniques to address this issue.

Venus Viva

The Venus Viva laser is an innovative product that uses radiofrequency energy to improve your skin. During this treatment, we will use this energy to make tiny micro-wounds in your skin. As your body heals these wounds, it will increase your collagen levels. After you complete your treatment plan, you will see improvements in the appearance of your acne scars, stretch marks, and wrinkles.

Chemical Peel

During a chemical peel, we will apply a customized solution to your face. This solution will be crafted to address your acne scars in a quick, comfortable manner. We have over one hundred different types of chemical peels, and we will personalize your treatment to fit the condition of your acne scars.


Morpheus8 is a state-of-the-art treatment that transmits thermal heat to your skin. This innovative treatment can contour your face, minimize your acne scars, and make you look younger and more vibrant. This treatment is very gentle, and you won’t have any downtime after your appointment.

Making a Decision

Your ideal treatment will depend on the condition of your skin, the severity of your acne scars, and other factors. During our first meeting, we will analyze your acne scars and talk about your overall health. After gathering this information, we will recommend a suitable treatment for you.

What Is the Difference Between This Treatment and Other Injectable Products?

In addition to Bellafill, we offer many other injectable treatments at Gold Skin Care Center. These products use a variety of techniques to improve your appearance.

Dermal Fillers

We have a wide range of dermal fillers that includes many products in the Restylane and Juvéderm collections. These products do not contain PMMA microspheres. Instead, these injectable products use hyaluronic acid to improve your appearance. Hyaluronic acid is a gentle ingredient that is fantastic at filling in your wrinkles and adding volume to your cheeks and lips.


Neuromodulators are injectable products that contain an ingredient called botulinum toxin. This ingredient relaxes the facial muscles in your target area. As your muscles relax, your wrinkles will become less noticeable. Our range of neuromodulators includes Botox and Dysport.

These products are great at addressing fine lines and wrinkles on the upper portion of your face. Further, Botox and Dysport are quick, comfortable treatments that you can receive during your lunch break.

Choosing an Injectable Product

We will help you choose a suitable injectable product during your initial consultation. During this meeting, we will examine your skin and talk about your desired changes. Further, we will discuss how your body reacted to injectable treatments that you received in the past.

We will use this information to select an ideal injectable product for you. For instance, if you would like to improve your lips, we are likely to recommend a dermal filler like Restylane Silk or Juvéderm Volbella. If you want to smooth your smile lines, we will probably advise you to use Bellafill.

Who Is a Good Candidate for This Injectable Treatment?

To achieve optimal results from this treatment, you should be a generally healthy adult who wants to minimize the appearance of your wrinkles or acne scars. You should also have realistic expectations about the improvements that you are likely to achieve.

Although this is a very safe treatment, you’ll need to receive a skin test before we administer your injections. This test will indicate whether you are allergic to the collagen or lidocaine contained in this product. If you have allergies to either of these ingredients, you cannot use this product. Further, you cannot use this treatment if have a history of severe allergies or anaphylaxis.

In addition, you should not receive this product if you have allergies to bovine collagen products or if you have a tendency to develop thick or excessive scars. Further, you cannot use this treatment if you are currently receiving injections that will desensitize you to meat products or if you plan to receive these injections in the future.
