Overview

Bellafill is a collagen-based facial filler that promptly adds volume to the skin. Particular among filler items as a result of its exceptional PMMA microspheres, Bellafill is viewed as one of the longest enduring fillers available, and is utilized to lift wrinkles and add fullness. Mostly utilized for the remedy of the nasolabial folds (grin lines), Bellafill does require a sensitivity test before use. Restorative specialists consider Bellafill as a remarkable treatment choice with results that can keep going for over a year. Bellafill is likewise used for acne scar treatment. It lifts and fills acne scars and rectifies set pores to make a smooth skin surface. Patients must be no less than 21 years old to get a Bellafill infusion.

Bellafill is the first FDA approved dermal filler for correction of acne scarring. The results for Bellafill have been studied with an average of over 90% patient satisfaction at 5 years post-treatment, when brought to full correction.

Administering Bellafill

Bellafill works in two ways: first, the collagen adds volume and lifts the skin around the laugh lines. Second, the PMMA that is comprised within the filler product creates a matrix that supports the body’s production of collagen. Bellafill is administered right inside our plastic surgery office during an appointment that takes about 30 minutes. The treatment, including the injection dosage, formulation, and location, is tailored during the procedure to according to the patient’s specific needs. A Bellafill injection is given through a syringe to areas that are pre-marked by the practitioner. 

What to Expect

After a Bellafill injection treatment, patients will see their results almost immediately. The skin will appear smoother and the treated lines will slowly diminish over the following days. Mild swelling and redness at the injection site will subside within about 24 hours. Patients should avoid exercise for at least one full day. Bellafill is unique in the fact that the PMMA microspheres provide a microscopic support matrix to support the ongoing production of collagen to provide lasting results. 

Expected Cost

The cost for a Bellafill treatment does cost a bit more than other facial fillers, averaging around $1,500-$2,000. This is due to the unique makeup of the filler and its lasting results.

Bellafill FAQs

Is it Safe?

Yes. This product was approved by the FDA in 2006 and has been proven to be safe and effective for treating laugh lines, as well as acne scars. Patients must complete an allergy test prior to treatment to ensure an allergic reaction will not occur.

Fast Results?

Bellafill replaces lost volume in the skin and the results are both immediate and long lasting.

Botox or Filler?

Injectable fillers add volume to the skin to help soften the appearance of surface wrinkles. BOTOX, and other wrinkle relaxers, temporarily freeze the underlying facial muscles, allowing them to relax which causes the skin’s surface to appear smooth. It is common for many patients to use a combination of a wrinkle relaxer and wrinkle filler to attain the best results.
