Ah…fall is in the air! Football is back, the holiday ads have already started and pumpkin spice products seem to be everywhere! That got us thinking… pumpkin…delicious in pie but… was there more to it than that?
The answer is yes! Pumpkin is not only a healthy food but it’s really good for your skin!
Pumpkin pulp is loaded with enzymes and Alpha Hydroxy Acids. Rich in vitamin A and vitamin C, pumpkin offers powerful anti-aging antioxidants. In addition it can act as a natural exfoliate that clarifies your skin leaving it soft and glowing. There are pumpkin based beauty products available and it’s easy to make your own.
While the pumpkin makes a great beauty product, it’s not so great when your smile lines mirror those on your Halloween jack-o-lantern. Yes. It’s definitely time to start looking at something beyond simple skin care and the logical next step is a dermal filler. There are many fillers on the market and fillers in general have a lot of advantages … there’s little to no downtime and the risks are very low. However, as with pumpkins…not all are created alike… you want to look for a dermal filler that leaves you looking beautiful now and in the future – you want Bellafill!
Unlike hyaluronic acid fillers, which often dissolve within a few months, Bellafill creates a lasting improvement in your skin. Its tiny, polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) microspheres are suspended within a base of smooth collagen gel. Once injected, Bellafill immediately reduces the look of smile lines. Over time, your body uses the microspheres to create a “scaffold” onto which your own collagen can develop. This collagen forms a foundation that adds volume to wrinkles, reducing their appearance.
Go bake that pie – use a skin mask and … make that appointment for Bellafill. The holidays are coming!
