What is Bellafill?

Bellafill is a semi-permanent, gel-like dermal filler that can be injected under the skin to address wrinkles, facial folds, and acne scars. If you're looking to smooth out moderate to severe wrinkles, such as smile lines or nasolabial folds, Bellafill can be an excellent option for you. Additionally, if you struggle with atrophic acne scars, including boxcar, rolling, and icepick scars, Bellafill is FDA-approved to provide improvement for up to one year. One of the key advantages of Bellafill is its long-lasting effects, with many patients experiencing results for up to five years, making it a popular choice for individuals seeking lasting rejuvenation. Best of all, our double board-certified facial plastic and cosmetic laser surgeon, Dr. J. David Holcomb, MD, personally performs each Bellafill procedure at our state-of-the-art facility. 

What are the Benefits of Bellafill?

Some of the key benefits of Bellafill include: 

  • Long-Lasting Effects: Bellafill can offer results that last up to five years for nasolabial lines and over a year for severe acne scars, providing lasting improvement.
  • Increased Collagen: By utilizing collagen as its main ingredient, Bellafill can help improve your skin's volume and texture, leaving you with a smoother and suppler appearance.
  • Improved Safety: Approved by the FDA and having undergone extensive safety testing, Bellafill offers a safe and reliable treatment option for facial rejuvenation.
  • Fast Results: Bellafill produces immediate results, allowing you to see and feel improvement right after the procedure.
  • Eliminated Downtime: With no required downtime after the injection, Bellafill allows you to resume your daily activities without delay, providing convenient treatment.

Am I a Good Candidate for Bellafill?

Bellafill can be an ideal option for individuals aged 21 and older who seek a long-lasting solution to address facial concerns. Candidates should be in good overall health and have realistic expectations. Whether you are looking to treat deep wrinkles and lines, sunken cheeks, acne scars, Bags under the eyes, thinning lips, or shallow facial contours, Bellafill can offer a versatile solution to enhance your appearance. However, it's essential to consult with Dr. Holcomb to determine if Bellafill is the right choice for you, especially if you have a history of allergic reactions, bleeding disorders, or severe allergies.

The Procedure 

During your Bellafill procedure, Dr. Holcomb will use an ultrafine needle to inject the filler into the targeted areas. The injections are quick, and the procedure time depends on the number of areas being treated, typically taking 15–60 minutes. Bellafill contains lidocaine to help numb the area, and you may also apply a numbing cream before the procedure to ensure your comfort. After the injections, Dr. Holcomb will gently massage the area to distribute the filler evenly. For optimal results, a follow-up treatment may be recommended after six weeks. The collagen in Bellafill provides immediate volume and lift, with the microspheres creating a supportive base for long-term improvement in your skin's appearance.

Recovery and Results

After your Bellafill injections, minor side effects like swelling and redness are common, but don't worry—these usually fade within a week. We recommend taking it easy for a short while avoiding strenuous activities, alcohol, and certain medications to ensure optimal healing. You'll likely start noticing visible improvements within two to four weeks, with your results continuing to enhance over the following months as your body naturally boosts collagen production to rejuvenate the treated areas.
