Bellafill is the first and only FDA-approved non-resorbable wrinkle filler for the correction of smile lines.
Bellafill is dual-acting injectable wrinkle filler. The secret is in its patented formula, which contains 20% Bellafill precision-Filtered Microspheres™ (made of PMMA, the same material used for dozens of medical implants over the last 50 years) and 80% Bellafill purified Bovine Collagen™ gel with lidocaine, an anesthetic.
First, BellaFill visibly corrects the wrinkle. Then the microspheres provide the permanent support your skin needs to correct the wrinkle and prevent further wrinkling.
Is BellaFill safe?
Yes. The FDA has approved Bellafill for the safe and effective correction of smile lines and atrophic scars.
Why is a skin test necessary prior to treatment with Bellafill?
A skin test is a safety precaution to make sure that you are not allergic to the bovine collagen or anesthetic in Bellafill.
Do you charge for a skin test?
We charge $50 for a skin test.
What is the cost of Bellafill treatment?
$1500 for 0.8 cc syringe.
