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 Encinitas, CA practice for more information about Bellafill.
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.
