“I don’t want to have to get fillers every year or so. Isn’t there anything that lasts longer?” You’re not alone in asking that question. We’ve heard that from our patients multiple times. Fortunately, there are other options than hyaluronic acid fillers. One of the best ones is Bellafill. Bellafill is an FDA-approved, long-lasting dermal filler that can improve the appearance of facial wrinkles, lines, and acne scars. Here’s the scoop on this popular treatment:

What is Bellafill?

Bellafill is a dermal filler that contains a combination of bovine collagen gel and polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) microspheres. The bovine collagen provides immediate volume to the skin, while the PMMA microspheres stimulate the body’s natural collagen production to create a longer-lasting effect.

Bellafill is FDA-approved for the treatment of nasolabial folds, also known as smile lines, as well as acne scars. It can also be used to enhance the volume of the cheeks and temples.

How does Bellafill work?

When injected into the skin, Bellafill adds volume to the treated area, which smooths out wrinkles and lines. The PMMA microspheres stimulate the body’s natural collagen production, which helps to improve skin texture and firmness over time. The results of Bellafill are long-lasting, with many patients seeing improvement for up to five years.

What are the benefits of Bellafill?

Bellafill has several benefits that make it an attractive treatment option for many patients. These benefits include:

  • Long-lasting results: Bellafill is one of the longest-lasting dermal fillers available, with results lasting up to five years.
  • Natural-looking results: The combination of bovine collagen gel and PMMA microspheres creates a natural-looking result that blends seamlessly with your existing facial features.
  • Minimal downtime: Most patients can return to their normal activities immediately after treatment.
  • Safe and effective: Bellafill is an FDA-approved treatment that has been extensively studied and found to be safe and effective.
  • Versatile: Bellafill can be used to treat a variety of concerns, including nasolabial folds, acne scars, and volume loss in the cheeks and temples.

What is the procedure like?

One month before getting Bellafill, a skin test is done to make sure that you aren’t allergic to the bovine collagen. As long as that test is negative, you can go straight to having the procedure!

The Bellafill procedure is relatively quick and straightforward. First, a topical numbing cream is applied to the treatment area to ensure that you are comfortable during the injection process. The Bellafill is then injected into the skin using a fine needle. Most patients experience only minimal discomfort during the procedure.

After the treatment, you may experience some mild swelling, redness, or bruising at the injection site. These side effects typically resolve within a few days. You can return to your normal activities immediately after treatment, although it is recommended that you avoid strenuous exercise for the first 24 hours.

How many treatments are needed?

In many cases, patients only need one Bellafill treatment to achieve their desired results. However, some patients may require additional treatments to achieve optimal results.

Is Bellafill right for me?

Bellafill is an excellent treatment option for many patients who are looking to improve the appearance of facial wrinkles, lines, and acne scars. However, it may not be suitable for everyone. It is important to schedule a consultation with a qualified medical provider to discuss your concerns and determine whether Bellafill is the right treatment for you.
