Bellafill is a collagen-based facial filler that immediately adds volume to the skin. Distinct among filler products because of its unique PMMA microspheres, Bellafill is considered one of the longest-lasting fillers on the market and is used to lift wrinkles and add fullness. Most commonly used for the correction of the nasolabial folds (smile lines), Bellafill does require an allergy test prior to use. Board-certified and fellowship-trained plastic surgeon Dr. Mark Schoemann of Schoemann Plastic Surgery considers Bellafill an exceptional option for increased facial volume with results that can last for more than a year. Bellafill is also used for acne scar treatment. It lifts and fills acne scars and corrects pitted pores to create a smooth skin surface. Patients must be at least 21 years old to receive a Bellafill injection. Schedule a consultation at our La Jolla, CA practice for more information about Bellafill.
"My Husband recently had a surf accident that broke his Jaw. Dr. Schoemann was our saving grace. He made him self available that night in the ER to meet with us and discuss the surgery. He was able to get surgery done the next day. He was available by phone to answer any questions prior to surgery. He did an amazing job on the surgery and gave us such piece of mind putting us at ease through out the whole process. Every follow up visit has been incredible with not only with amazing care but his office is so friendly and on-time. We never feel rushed we have time to think and ask questions. We feel so fortunate to have had him in our time of emergency. We wanted to let everyone how incredible he is with face and jaw repair."- P.S. / Yelp / Apr 25, 2018

Candidates for Bellafill must be 21 years of age or older and have received the required skin test prior to treatment. Those who need frequent touch-ups with fillers and desire a more long-term solution, without repetitive maintenance are also candidates for Bellafill. Patients who are allergic to lidocaine or bovine collagen are not ideal candidates for this treatment.
Bellafill works in two ways: first, the collagen adds volume and lifts the skin around the laugh lines. Second, the PMMA that is comprised of the filler product creates a matrix that supports the body’s natural production of collagen. Bellafill is administered during your scheduled appointment in the comfort of our minor procedures room, taking about 30 minutes to complete. The treatment, including the injection dosage, formulation, and location, is tailored during the procedure according to your specific needs.
What to Expect
After a Bellafill injection, patients will see their results almost immediately. The skin will appear smoother and the treated lines will slowly diminish over the following days. Mild swelling and redness at the injection site will subside within about 24 hours. Patients should avoid exercise for at least one full day. Bellafill is unique because the PMMA microspheres provide a microscopic support matrix to aid the ongoing production of collagen, providing longer-lasting results.
If you are interested in a cosmetic treatment that offers long-term results without the invasiveness of surgery, call our La Jolla, CA office today. Dr. Schoemann and the team at Schoemann Plastic Surgery will be happy to discuss the benefits of Bellafill with you to help determine if it's the right option to help you meet your aesthetic goals.
