What is Bellafill?
Bellafill, also known as BellaFill® in the US, is a premier wrinkle correction filler primarily used for the smile lines (nasolabial folds). Bellafill is a formulation of collagen gel and microspheres of PMMA. It also contains lidocaine, a local anesthetic, which reduces discomfort during treatment. There is no downtime after an Bellafill treatment and normal activities can be resumed right away. *
Is Bellafill permanent?
Yes. While other fillers like Juvederm or Restylane are made from natural or synthetic materials that eventually get absorbed by the body and only last for a few months, Bellafill is a microsphere-enhanced collagen that offers a permanent wrinkle solution. *
What does Bellafill do?
Bellafill is injected directly under the fold or wrinkle that you would like addressed. The collagen in Bellafill eventually gets absorbed by the body but the microspheres stay in place and give your skin the support it needs to maintain long-lasting wrinkle correction. Beyond acting as a dermal filler, the microspheres also stimulate the body to produce its own collagen, which helps create long-lasting results. Each treatment takes 15 to 20 minutes. Two treatments may be required to achieve full results. If two treatments are recommended, they will be spaced three to six weeks apart. *
Has Bellafill been approved by the FDA?
Bellafill was approved by the FDA in 2006. It is a simple, in-office procedure that offers patients beautiful, long-lasting results that can be noticed immediately. *
Do people think Bellafill is worth it?
