Bellafill – Long Lasting Dermal Filler
Bellafill is a long-lasting (semi-permanent) injectable dermal filler that uses collagen and collagen producing microspheres to improve acne scars, facial scars, lines, and folds.
Bellafill works in two ways: 1) collagen provides immediate volume below scars, lines, or folds to lift them to the level of the surrounding skin; and 2) collagen inducing microspheres trigger your body’s own collagen production that create long-lasting improvement.
How long does Bellafill last?
On average, Bellafill lasts between 1 and 5 years. Patients who have a series of 2 or 3 injections find their results last longer.
Is Bellafill new?
Bellafill has been available for several years but has recently received an expanded FDA approval for acne scars and other types of scars.
Have we injected very many patients?
Yes, Dr. Chernoff and our nursing staff have extensive experience treating patients with collagen injections as well as all other types of injections and combination treatments. Dr. Chernoff has been an early adopter of all types of treatments. He works closely with the scientists who develop the treatments giving him experience with the products and knowledge of how they work.
How will I know if Bellafill is a good option for me?
You need to come in for a consultation. We will discuss all options for improvement and the cost for each option.
Can Bellafill be used for adding volume (lips & cheeks)?
Since each person’s face and features are different, the only way we can discuss your options is to come to our office for a consultation. Our center is a training site for all injectables, we are extremely experienced, and offer all types of injections.
How does Bellafill compare to Juvederm or other Hyaluronic Acid (HA) fillers?
Your body gradually absorbs HA fillers while the majority of the Bellafill does not absorb. That means Bellafill lasts much longer than HA fillers and is considered semi-permanent.
