A Long-Lasting Filler That Allows You to Keep the Look You Love
Bellafill is a dual-acting wrinkle filler. Once injected deeply below the wrinkle, the collagen in Bellafill acts as a temporary filler for immediate wrinkle correction. As your body absorbs the collagen over time, the microspheres remain in place and your body’s own new collagen is deposited on the surface of the microspheres. Your skin’s new collagen is what provides long-lasting, natural feeling wrinkle correction.
How is Bellafill Different From Other Fillers?
Unlike temporary fillers that are made with materials that are absorbed by the body over the course of a few months, Bellafill’s unique microsphere-enhanced collagen delivers a lasting solution. The microspheres contained in Bellafill are not absorbed by the body and create a support matrix for enduring wrinkle correction by working together with your body’s own collagen.
What is the Procedure Like?
The procedure is performed in the office and takes 15 to 30 minutes. Bellafill contains 0.3% lidocaine for your comfort, and generally there is no discomfort at the time of treatment. Slight redness and swelling can be expected, but results are immediate and will continue to improve over time. Daily activities can be resumed right away.
To ensure you are not allergic to the collagen or anesthetic in Bellafill, a skin test must be administered by your physician prior to the initial treatment, approximately four weeks ahead of time.
