Bellafill is distinctive among injectable facial fillers. It adds volume to the skin immediately to lift and smooth facial lines and wrinkles. In addition, Bellafill stimulates natural collagen production, for results that lasting up to five years.
What Is Bellafill and What Makes It Unique?
Bellafill is a polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) collagen dermal filler. It contains tiny PMMA microspheres suspended in a base of smooth collagen gel. When injected under the skin, the collagen gel immediately reduces the appearance of smile lines. Over time, the body creates a “scaffold” built upon the microspheres contained in Bellafill, where natural collagen can develop. This increased collagen production adds volume to reduce the appearance of wrinkles with soft, smooth, natural-looking, long-lasting results.

Is There Any Downtime with Bellafill?
You can return to your normal activities immediately after treatment with Bellafill. You may experience temporary swelling, redness, bruising, or itching, which should resolve within a few days.
Does Bellafill Have FDA Approval?
Yes. Bellafill was FDA approved for treating nasolabial folds (lines running from the nose to the mouth corners) under the trade name “ArteFill” in 2006. It was approved by the FDA in December, 2014 for correcting moderate to severe acne scars in patients over 21. Since then it has been used successfully for our patients at Forever Ageless – where we are known for our exceptional skills and for achieving beautiful results with advanced injectables.
Is there anything I need to think with before or after the treatment?
It is suggested that no alcohol be consumed 48 hours prior to injection as this will increase swelling and bruising. And no exercise for 48 hours after to minimize bruising and swelling.
