Looking for Bellafill in Johor Bahru to get rid of lines and wrinkles on your face? Discover quality-checked clinics with Medical Departures.
This soft tissue filler can be used on various lines and wrinkles, including deep scars. It is also approved to use for adding volume to cheeks and for non-surgical brow lifts, nose jobs and other facial treatments.
Bellafill belongs to the family of dermal fillers, so is easy to use as it is an injectable. The treatment takes hardly any time and is minimally invasive. What’s more it has a dual action: it immediately adds volume and because of the way it is made the body’s natural collagen builds on the product, giving longer-lasting results. Bellafill is made of bovine collagen, containing polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) and also contains lidocaine, an anesthetic. This PMMA is not absorbed, so the results can last as long as five years. Before use allergy testing is necessary.
Bellafill is quite expensive in Australia and other western countries. Johor Bahru sees many tourists, particularly medical tourists, thanks to its low prices for medical treatment. It is also easily-accessible from most places since it has a huge international airport that is serviced by most major international airlines, plus it’s only a 10 minute train journey into Singapore – very handy if you want to take in another country on your trip.
After Malaysia’s capital city, Johor Bahru is one of the fastest growing cities in the country and is an economic, retail and commercial centre in the area. It is a popular urban tourist destination, particularly with residents of near-neighbour, Singapore, offering all the fun of city life, as well as unique attractions like the Danga Bay recreational waterfront, golf courses, paintball parks and a zoo.
Bellafill requires a very precise injection technique. If not done correctly, it can lead to problems like rash, itching, lumps and granulomas. As Bellafill treatment is permanent, it is necessary that it is done by a qualified and experienced doctor. It is not advisable to book on your own as you are not in a position to verify all the information given on a website, let alone whether the facilities are up-to-standard and adhere to recognized health and safety protocols, such as the ISO’s.
Going through Medical Departures is a much safer option because we always carry out a detailed investigation into the qualifications, accreditations and experience of the doctors working at medical facilities we list on our website. We do all this for your protection. We also check that the facilities and amenities at the centers are of good quality so that you are not shortchanged in any way and make it our business to collate real patient reviews, which are published on our website for you to read for yourself.
As long as the allergy testing is clear and you have had no reaction the actual treatment does not take long. Depending on the areas to be treated, between quarter and half an hour should suffice for the work. Your doctor may use a topical anesthetic before the injection to minimize injection pain, if required, though the product also contains an anesthetic.
While there is no downtime required, you may have some swelling and bruising at the site for a day or so. You may want to use ice packs to reduce the swelling. If you have bruising it may take four to seven days to resolve. You should not touch the area of injections as far as possible. Bellafill should not be used in excess initially as the results are permanent. Most often the doctor uses less of the product than required and then waits a few months to see the results before topping up with a little more of the product if required.
Because Bellafill offers a more or less permanent treatment, it is more expensive to use than other fillers. In Australia you can expect to pay around AUD 1,400 per syringe, whereas in Johor Bahru you can expect to pay around half of this price.
