what are bioactive fillers?

Rebuild Skin Collagen with Bioactive Fillers

As you look in the mirror each day, are you starting to notice the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, but are afraid to risk the unnatural look that comes with many typical cosmetic treatments? If so, bioactive filler treatments might be something you want to explore.

So what exactly are bioactive fillers? This is a type of treatment that stimulates natural collagen production that helps to smooth facial wrinkles and folds in a non-invasive manner. Collagen is a naturally occurring protein found throughout our bodies. The production of collagen slows down as we age. A high amount of collagen gives your skin strength and elasticity while it replaces dead skin cells. Unlike hyaluronic acid fillers, bioactive fillers stimulate natural collagen production within our bodies, building overall collagen levels over a period of time. Bioactive fillers typically last longer than other similar treatments. They can stay active within the skin for years.

Check out these treatments that DermaBlue offers that utilize bioactive fillers:

  • BELLAFILL: Stimulates collagen growth long term for up to 5 years. Collagen gel is injected and immediately reduces the look of smile lines. Adds volume to wrinkles and gives a soft smooth look. It is the only long-term filler that is FDA approved to treat acne scars for longer than one year. Bellafill is also used for nasolabial folds, cheek enhancement, forehead, tear troughs and neck scarring.
  • RADIESSE: A wrinkle filler used to plump the skin. It restores cheek and facial volume by stimulating your body’s natural collagen. Can be used to reshape noses, chins, and restore volume in hands. Results last one year or longer.
  • SCULPTRA: Is an FDA-approved injectable filler that helps to gradually replace lost collagen. It is used to correct deep facial wrinkles and folds. It can be used almost anywhere to replace lost volume: facial rejuvenation, acne scarring, and body lifting. Lasts 2 or more years by stimulating natural collagen formation.

Bioactive filler treatments are a great option for those looking to enhance skin and bone health in a more natural way. DermaBlue is the premier center for bioactive filler treatments among the greater Asheville area. We have a long track record of success in the field and have become a national training center for bioactive fillers.  Call us today to schedule an initial consultation that is FREE of charge to learn more about which product is best for you skin care needs.
