What is Bellafill?

Bellafill is a permanent filler that is approved for filling acne scars but is also great for areas such as cheeks, chin, jawline and smile lines.

How long does it last and how does it work?

It lasts for 5+ years. Initially, it works by adding volume in the area injected and over 2-3  months it also promotes collagen production.

How is Bellafill different than other fillers on the market?

It is different because it is a collagen stimulator and a filler and it lasts longer. It also requires a skin test prior to the treatment.

Who is a good candidate or Bellafill?

Healthy patients that do not react to the skin test are good candidates, as well as patients who have volume loss in the face and acne scar patients.

Explain to us what is reviewed during a consultation on Bellafill.

When I see patients I make the best recommendation for them not only based on their physical appearance but also lifestyle, comfort level, skin type and expectations. Product composition, risks, benefits, of every procedure are also discussed. You may be a great candidate for Bellafill but some patients have other considerations, such as they don’t want something permanent. I have to take everything into consideration.

Is Bellafill safe?

Yes, there is a 5-year study on over 1000+ patients that shows the safety and efficacy of Bellafill. Possible side effects are similar to those of other fillers.
