What is Bellafill used for?
Bellafill is used to smooth moderate to severe facial folds and wrinkles from the nose to the corners of the mouth (nasolabial folds). Bellafill is meant to be a permanent wrinkle solution. It has been found to be a safe dermal filler that restores volume and fullness to the skin. It is also used to correct acne scars on the cheeks in those over 21 years of age.
How does Bellafill work?
Bellafill is injected into the skin with an ultrafine needle. Bellafill plumps the skin to smooth away wrinkles and folds. Bellafill is composed of nonabsorbable microsphere collagen which acts to provide support for longer-lasting wrinkle correction. Most patients see results within one or two treatments. Allergy pre-testing is required.
How long does Bellafill last?
Bellafill is a non-resorbable dermal filler, unlike many other dermal fillers that are absorbed and require reinjections over certain fixed amounts of times. Results with Bellafill are semi-permanent.
