With its one-of-a-kind safety and effectiveness, the dermal filler, Bellafill, has been proven by the FDA to provide beautiful results up to 5 years.
Bellafill is an FDA approved dermal filler used to smooth moderate to severe facial folds. It can be used in both women and men. Bellafill is not approved for use in lip augmentation.
Bellafill is meant to be a permanent wrinkle solution. Bellafill is a non-resorbable dermal filler, unlike many other dermal fillers that are absorbed and require reinjection. It has been found by the FDA to be a safe dermal filler that restores volume and fullness to the skin.
Bellafill is the only FDA approved treatment shown to correct acne scars on the cheeks in those over 21 years of age.
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 a longer-lasting wrinkle correction. Most patients see results within one or two treatments.
As with any injectable wrinkle filler, you can expect mild swelling and redness at the treatment site. These side effects are usually temporary.
Occasionally, there is mild bruising that typically disappears in three to seven days. Less common side effects include rash and itching more than 48 hours after treatment, persistent swelling or redness, and increased sensitivity at some or all injection sites. Two other rare potential side effects of all dermal fillers are lumps and granulomas, both of which can be treated by your physician. Be sure to call your doctor immediately if you notice any unusual skin reactions around the treatment area.
Bellafill contains microspheres that help provide the support for wrinkle correction. The microspheres are not absorbed and can only be removed surgically. The safety of Bellafill in pregnant or breastfeeding women, and individuals under 18, has not been established.
There is always a risk of infection with any injection. Discuss the symptoms of infection with your doctor or medical professional so you will be able to recognize them.
An allergy skin test is required 4 weeks prior to first use. The skin test is a safety precaution to ensure that you are not allergic to the collagen in Bellafill.
