Bellafill (Formerly ArteFill)

Bellafill is the first injectable filler available in the United States that fulfills the promise of lasting results. Bellafill injections have been used for more than two decades throughout Europe and Canada under the name Artecoll and ArteFill for treatment of nasolabial folds (the deep lines that run from the side of the nose to the corner of the mouth). Bellafill received approval from the FDA in 2006 for treatment of nasolabial folds and is available at Naficy Plastic Surgery & Rejuvenation Center.

HOW IS BELLAFILL DIFFERENT FROM TEMPORARY DERMAL FILLERS?

All temporary fillers such as Restylane, Juvederm, Collagen, and Radiesse are eventually absorbed by the body and repeat injections are required to maintain results. Bellafill is different, as a component of Bellafill (known as Bellafill microspheres), are not absorbed by the body. These microspheres provide the permanent support needed for long-lasting wrinkle correction.

WHAT IS BELLAFILL?

Bellafill is a combination of a well-known temporary filler (Collagen), and a permanent acrylic based filler known as polymethyl methacrylate, or PMMA. ArteFill contains 80% purified bovine collagen and 20% Bellafill Precision-Filtered Microspheres (tiny spheres made of PMMA, the same material used for dozens of medical implants over the last 50 years). As the collagen portion of Bellafill goes away with time, the Bellafill PMMA microspheres stimulate collagen production by the skin and finally become encapsulated (fully covered) by the patient's own collagen fibers which provides the lasting results.

BELLAFILL RESULTS

Bellafill results are similar to results obtainable using other fillers such as Restylane, Juvederm, and Radiesse. The major difference is that results from Bellafill are long lasting. Typically a number of treatment sessions, spaced 4 months apart, are needed to get a lasting correction.

BELLAFILL FOR ACNE SCARS

Bellafill recently received FDA approval for treatment of acne scars. Acne results from infection and inflammation of the skin which can destroy normal collagen resulting in sunken scars. Bellafill injections can fill and lift up acne scarring thus improving their appearance.

BELLAFILL SKIN TEST

A skin test is required to make sure that you are not allergic to the bovine collagen contained in Bellafill . The skin test involves injection of a small amount of the collagen under the skin of the forearm and a waiting period of about 4-6 weeks to make sure there is no reaction.

HOW DOES AN BELLAFILL TREATMENT COMPARE TO TEMPORARY FILLERS?

Bellafill treatment is similar to treatment using other injectable fillers such as Restylane, Juvederm, and Radiesse. It involves injection of the Bellafill under the skin with a fine needle and takes only a few minutes. You can resume your normal activities immediately. It can take a few months for Bellafill results to show and most people get lasting results after 2-3 treatment sessions, spaced 3-4 months apart.

CAN ANYONE HAVE BELLAFILL TREATMENTS?

Most individuals are good candidates for Bellafill treatment. Bellafill is contraindicated (not recommended) in those who:

  • Have a positive reaction to the Bellafill skin test.
  • Have a history of severe allergies and hypersensitivity (anaphylaxis).
  • Are allergic to the anesthetic (lidocaine) in Bellafill.
  • Have a history of allergies to any bovine collagen products.
  • Are prone to thick scarring and/or keloid scarring.
  • Are undergoing or planning to undergo allergy shots for meat products.

BELLAFILL COST

The cost of your Bellafill treatment depends on the amount of Bellafill used and is typically $1000 per 1cc syringe. Special multi-syringe promotions and package pricing may at times be available. You will discuss your goals with you provider and select the appropriate amount of Bellafill to use. Although the initial cost of Bellafill is higher than that of other injectable fillers, such as Restylane, Voluma, Juvederm, and Radiesse, the long-lasting nature of Bellafill offers savings in the long run.

I AM INTERESTED! WHAT DO I DO NEXT?

If you are considering Bellafill injections we encourage you to contact us to schedule a consultation and/or treatment at Naficy Plastic Surgery & Rejuvenation Center. During this visit, our experienced team of providers will listen to your concerns and discuss your options. After careful analysis of your face, we will tell you whether you are a suitable candidate for this procedure and inform you of the alternatives and potential risks of the procedure. If you are thinking about having an Bellafill injection but have never had any temporary fillers before, you may want to try Restylane, Juvederm, or Radiesse first to make sure that you like the results.
