Bellafill is an FDA-approved, collagen-based filler used to reduce the appearance of smile lines and pitted acne scars on the cheeks. Bellafill injection immediately adds volume below the surface of the skin and reduces wrinkles, for smooth results that last at least 5 years — longer than any other dermal filler.
How Does Bellafill Work?
With Bellafill, you don’t have to decide between looking great now and looking great later.
Bellafill uses an innovative blend of 2 distinct components to create results that are both immediate and long lasting.
Suspended within its smooth collagen gel base are tiny polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) microspheres.
Once it’s injected, the collagen goes to work immediately, adding natural-looking volume in the areas injected. Over time, your body naturally metabolizes the injected collagen — but that doesn’t mean your results disappear. The PMMA microspheres work as a scaffolding system, supporting the development of your own collagen and laying the foundation for long-term smoothness.
Before & After Photos
Bellafill is the only FDA-approved dermal filler, on the market, for the correction of atrophic (pitted), distensible facial acne scars on the cheek. No other dermal filler on the market is approved for the treatment of acne scars.
Nasolabial Folds (Smile lines)
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. These natural-looking results feel soft and smooth through 5 years.
Other areas we use Bellafill
We have gotten excellent results using Bellafill for cheek augmentation, forehead lift, restoring lost volume in the temples, reshaping and rejuvenating the chin and jawline, softening lines around the eyes and lips, for lifting and smoothing the skin of the neck, and for long-lasting hand rejuvenation.
Patients who have had a positive reaction to the Bellafill Skin Test, have a history of severe allergies, have known bovine collagen allergies, are allergic to lidocaine, have bleeding disorders or are prone to thick scar formation and/or excessive scarring should not receive Bellafill.
Preparing for Bellafill
Avoid medications, vitamins, or herbs that might increase bleeding: aspirin, NSAIDs (ibuprofen, Aleve), blood thinners, antiplatelet medications, vitamin E, omega-3 fatty acids (such as in fish oil supplements), garlic, ginger, ginseng, gingko biloba, green tea, feverfew, grape seed, horseradish, and fenugreek. There should be no active skin infection in the areas that will be treated. No other special preparation is required prior to Bellafill injection.
During your initial consultation, Cathleen Bilyeu, our Master Aesthetician, will review your medical history, exam you, perform a detailed facial mapping, and discuss your specific concerns. She will then work with you to develop a customized treatment plan to help you achieve your goals, using Bellafill and potentially other treatment options available in our office. Treatment plans are reviewed and finalized by Dr. Hayes who performs his own assessment prior to proceeding with injections.
The price for Bellafill varies depending on your areas of concern, the number of syringes and sessions needed, and your ultimate goals. Your provider and you will work together to create a customized treatment plan that’s tailored to your body, your goals and your budget.
