Dermal fillers can provide many benefits, but not all dermal fillers are made the same. Bellafill is a unique, sought-after product for patients seeking a renewed, more youthful appearance.
When you’re ready to discover everything Bellafill has to offer, schedule your appointment at ALC Medspa.
What Is Bellafill?
Bellafill is a type of dermal filler. Dermal fillers are injectables used to fill lines, restore volume, and improve facial contours.
Bellafill is long-lasting and FDA-approved and has benefits that set it apart from other dermal fillers. In addition to tiny polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) beads, Bellafill contains collagen, a naturally occurring protein responsible for healthy, plump skin. As you age, collagen production slows, affecting your skin’s appearance.
Bellafill was originally approved for treating lines in the nasolabial folds and subsequently, to treat moderate to severe acne scars. Now, Bellafill has several other uses to improve the skin and facial contours.
How Does Bellafill Work?
Once injected into the treatment areas on your skin, Bellafill’s PMMA beads work to instantly plump the skin and improve its appearance. In response, the skin is stimulated to produce collagen over time.
Dermal fillers are metabolized by the body. Once Bellafill has been metabolized, you’ll still enjoy the results of your improved collagen production, which means you’ll have softer, more supple skin over the long term.
What to Expect During Your Bellafill Appointment
The first order of business during your Bellafill appointment is examining your skin and addressing your areas of concern. We’ll ask questions to better understand your aesthetic goals before creating a treatment plan unique to your needs.
Before we begin, we can use a special cream to numb the treatment area for your comfort. Once you’re numb and ready for your treatment, we’ll carefully inject Bellafill into the targeted area, working slowly and precisely to ensure optimal results. The product contains lidocaine, so the more we inject, the more numb the area will become.
After we’ve completed your injectable treatment, we’ll give you aftercare instructions to help promote quicker healing and ideal results.

Frequently Asked Questions About Bellafill
We understand that you may have questions before getting your Bellafill treatment. Below are some of the questions we receive most regarding Bellafill and what to expect. We’re also available to answer additional questions during your appointment.
What Areas Can Bellafill Treat?
Uses for Bellafill have evolved, and it can treat numerous areas. Some of the areas Bellafill works best on include:
- Nasolabial folds
- Smile lines
We also use Bellafill to correct nose shape and symmetry and fill in hollow areas under the eyes.
Additionally, Bellafill is ideal for treating acne scars. Severe acne scars don’t just affect skin tone — they alter the texture of the skin. Bellafill can fill in areas where patients have significant acne scarring to even out skin texture.
Is There Downtime After Getting Bellafill?
There is little to no downtime after getting Bellafill. We usually recommend avoiding exercise and strenuous activity for a day or two after your treatment. Aside from this, most patients can return to regular activity after their appointments.
How Soon Will I See Results After Bellafill Treatment?
One of the best parts about getting dermal fillers is seeing results immediately after your treatment. You’ll see a noticeable difference, as your treatment areas will look fuller, smoother, and plumper.
You’ll likely experience your final results within a week or so after your filler appointment.
How Much Bellafill Do I Need?
The amount of product you need is based on the size of the treatment area and the severity of your concerns. During your appointment, we’ll examine your desired treatment area and decide how much Bellafill you’ll need to achieve the best results.
We’ll also carefully place the product during your treatment to help make sure you’re getting just the right amount.
How Long Does Bellafill Last?
Bellafill lasts longer than other fillers. While many fillers last about a year, Bellafill can last two to five years, and sometimes longer.
Bellafill’s results are unique. After other fillers metabolize, you’re left with the same skin and facial features that you had before treatment. Bellafill is different. Because Bellafill has collagen that your skin will absorb, even after the product is metabolized, you’ll experience benefits from the added collagen.
How Does Bellafill Compare to Other Dermal Fillers?
Bellafill is often compared to other dermal fillers, including Juvéderm and Restylane. However, when comparing the two side by side, there are clear differences, including:
- The Product: Bellafill contains PMMA beads and collagen, while other fillers usually consist of hyaluronic acid and other materials, natural or otherwise
- Uses: Bellafill and other fillers can fill and plump the skin and fine lines, but Bellafill addresses additional concerns, including nose symmetry
- Results: While other fillers are long-lasting, Bellafill results can last much longer
There’s a reason Bellafill has increased in popularity. It’s an outstanding product that offers beautiful results.
