About Bellafill®

91Overview

If you have had facial fillers before, you may already know that their results are only temporary. This is due to your body’s natural ability to break down the filler, causing it to be absorbed back into your system. As a result, your wrinkles eventually return to their original state, forcing you to continuously return for more short-lived filler injections. This process can be both time consuming and very costly.

However, Bellafill® is the first and only FDA-approved non-resorbable wrinkle filler for the correction of smile lines.  ImageLift® is becoming a national center of excellence for this safe, highly-effective procedure, and we will be training other physicians in our proven, artistic techniques.  Patients really are asking for significant lasting results. The secret is in its patented formula, which contains 20% Bellafill® Precision-Filtered Microspheres™ and 80% Bellafill® Purified Bovine Collagen™ Gel with Lidocaine, an anesthetic.

The microspheres present in Bellafill® are made of polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA), the same material used for dozens of medical implants over the last 50 years. Once injected into the wrinkle site, the microspheres provide a supportive, natural feeling structure that causes your wrinkles to be reduced, and in some instances may disappear permanently.

Is Bellafill® Right for You?

To determine if Bellafill® is right for you, contact one of our Patient Care Coordinators today for a free consultation. To determine if you are an ideal candidate for Bellafill®, you will be given a skin test during your initial consultation. Individuals who are not good candidates for Bellafill® include those who have severe allergies, especially those that are allergic to bovine collagen and/or Lidocaine. If you are prone to hypertrophic scarring, or the formation of unusually thick scar tissue, this service may not be right for you.  You must speak with one of our doctors to determine your eligibility for this procedure.

Bellafill® is an ideal choice for many individuals looking to reduce the appearance of the troublesome wrinkle lines surrounding the mouth, referred to as nasolabial folds. Bellafill® is FDA approved for use in the nasolabial folds, and off-label use of the product in other areas of the face is very common.

Benefits include:

  • Immediate, visible results with no downtime
  • A simple, in-office procedure
  • Treatments improve over the course of several months and last for up to 5 years
  • Proven, safe, and effective

What Should You Expect With Bellafill®?

Your treatment begins with a visit to our office to meet with one of our double board-certified facial plastic surgeons to determine if you are an ideal candidate. If Bellafill® is right for you, we will conduct a skin test to make sure you are not sensitive to bovine collagen. If no sensitivity is discovered, we will begin your first Bellafill® treatment.

Once the Bellafill® is injected into your nasolabial folds, the microspheres spread out and become suspended along your wrinkle line, providing the support your skin needs for permanent wrinkle reduction. Due to the anesthetic Lidocaine in the filler, you will only experience minimal discomfort. We provide numbing medicine to make your treatment as comfortable as possible.

How are the Results with Bellafill®?

Patients see immediate results and can resume normal activities. The most common adverse effects are some general discomfort, mild swelling, and reddening at the injection site.

Each patient is different, but most patients require an average of two to three injection sessions spaced over the course of three months. The spacing of the sessions allows your doctor to assess your collagen production for optimal aesthetic results. In clinical trials, patients showed continued and improved wrinkle correction for up to five years. Don’t wait to rediscover a younger looking you.
