The Ultimate Guide to Bellafill

Bellafill is a dermal filler used for smoothing lines and wrinkles and improving contours to give you a more refreshed and young looking appearance.

How does Bellafill work?

Bellafill is a collagen-based dermal filler, and helps to restore depleted collagen levels in the skin. Collagen is one of the fundamental building blocks of good skin. It occurs naturally and forms a matrix under the skin, keeping in smooth. As we age, collagen levels diminish; the matrix begins to break down and fine lines and wrinkles appear.

Bellafill works in two ways. It contains bovine (cow) collagen to support your own body’s collagen production, and it contains hydrating microspheres to add moisture to the skin.

How long does the procedure take?

Before treatment commences you will need to have a negative allergy test in case you are allergic to the bovine collagen in the product.

Bellafill is injected directly into the areas requiring treatment with a fine-needle syringe. It only takes a few moments if you are only having one area done. You may be given some local anesthetic before the injection, to make you more comfortable.

How long is the recovery time for Bellafill treatments?

There are minimal side-effects from Bellafill injections. You may feel a little discomfort during the injection, and immediately afterwards you may experience some bruising, swelling, itching and redness, but these will be mild and should disappear completely within a day or two.

How long does Bellafill last?

You should be able to see the results of your Bellafill injection immediately, and the results could last for up to a year. You may need to have some top-ups initially to achieve the desired result. These should be taken 3 – 6 weeks apart.

Can I have Bellafill abroad?

Yes – there are lots of clinics overseas who use the same branded products you receive at home. Bellafill is available overseas – and at a price that is around 50% less than what you’d pay at home.
