Bellafill® for Nasolabial Folds
How It Works
Bellafill® is an injectable filler that’s FDA approved to treat nasolabial folds. These folds, sometimes called “smile lines,” extend from the nose to the corners of the mouth. Bellafill® provides instant smoothness, with long-lasting results: In the longest and largest study ever conducted on dermal fillers, Bellafill® was proven to be effective through five years. That means that you can enjoy your results for much longer than you would with hyaluronic acid-based fillers.
Bellafill® has 2 main components:
- Smooth collagen gel (80%) forms the base of Bellafill, creating smooth, supple volume beneath the surface of the nasolabial folds.
- Polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) microspheres (20%) are suspended within the collagen gel. These form a sturdy scaffold where your own natural collagen grows.
Thanks to its 2 innovative components, Bellafill® creates instant results that you can enjoy as soon as you leave the office. As the original collagen gel fades away, your body naturally replaces it with your own collagen around the microspheres, for unparalleled long-term smoothness.
Candidacy & Safety
The best Bellafill® candidates are women or men, 21 and older, who are bothered by the look of their nasolabial folds and wish to avoid the regular touch-up treatments associated with other fillers.
Bellafill® is FDA approved, and both its collagen gel and its PMMA microspheres have established records of safety. PMMA is an acrylic material that’s widely used in medicine.
Bellafill® is safe for skin of all types and colors. However, an allergy test is required prior to treatment to make sure prospective patients aren’t sensitive to the product.
