Bellafill® for Wrinkles and Folds
What could your next 5 years look like? Bellafill® is a dermal filler that provides long-lasting correction for wrinkles, folds, and smile lines (nasolabial folds). Bellafill® is the only FDA-approved filler proven to last up to 5 years. Patients love the immediate effects, and the natural results that improve over time.

What is Bellafill® and how does it work? Bellafill® is a smooth, collagen gel-based dermal filler that contains tiny PMMA microspheres. The collagen gel in Bellafill® provides immediate volume and lift to correct lines and wrinkles, smoothing them away for instant results. Even as the collagen is absorbed by your body, the PMMA microspheres remain in place, creating a “scaffold” that triggers and supports your own natural collagen production. Because your own collagen replaces the collagen gel from the initial injections, results last seamlessly through five years.
Is Bellafill® safe? Yes. Bellafill® is FDA-approved and has been proven safe and effective in rigorous clinical studies. Bellafill® performed very well in the largest and longest safety study ever conducted on dermal fillers. At the study’s completion, 83% of patients were still satisfied with their results 5 years after treatment. As with many injectable fillers, you may experience bruising, itching, pain, swelling, redness, discoloration, lumpiness, bumps, acne, or increased sensitivity at the treatment site. These side effects usually resolve themselves quickly.
What results can I expect with Bellafill®? How long does it take to see them? Bellafill® creates a lasting improvement in your skin by smoothing out the lines around the nasolabial folds. You will see results right away, and continued improvement over time. There’s no required downtime after your treatment with Bellafill®. You can return to your normal routine immediately.
