what is Bellafill?
As a long-lasting injectable dermal filler, Bellafill can help reduce the signs of aging and decrease the appearance of acne scars. Bellafill is made with smooth collagen and polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) microspheres. Together, these ingredients help rejuvenate and smooth the complexion. While helping to add volume and lift to the face, patients can experience visible improvements right after the treatment. Bellafill is FDA approved and works well for patients who have acne scars, want smoother skin, or hope to improve lost volume in the face. During your consultation with Dr. Roberto Garcia at Contoura Facial Plastic Surgery in Ponte Vedra Beach, FL, he can help you determine if Bellafill works best for your cosmetic needs and create a detailed treatment plan.

Bellafill Procedure Technique
Generally, Dr. Garcia can perform your treatment on the same day as your consultation. After your consultation, we will take you back to one of our private treatment rooms for the Bellafill injections. While we clean the skin to remove any oils or lotions, patients can relax on a comfortable treatment chair. Next, Dr. Garcia marks the treatment areas to help place the dermal filler. If needed, we can apply a local anesthetic to the skin; however, most patients find that the discomfort is easy to manage. Once a team member has prepared the skin, Dr. Garcia will expertly administer the Bellafill with a fine needle. Immediately after your treatment, we apply cold compresses to reduce any swelling or bleeding.
what can i expect after bellafill?
After your procedure, you can resume your daily activities, but you should avoid exercise and strenuous activities for at least 24 hours. You may also experience some discomfort, such as inflammation, itchiness, bruising, swelling, and discoloration. These symptoms should subside within a few hours or sometimes up to a week. One of the best things about Bellafill injections is how long they last. In addition to seeing immediate results after your treatment, Bellafill can last for up to five years.
How many Bellafill treatments will I need?
Depending on your skin condition and aesthetic goals, you may need between 2 – 5 syringes. Dr. Roberto Garcia will talk to you about your goals and help you decide on treatment options during your consultation.
How long does Bellafill last?
Unlike some other fillers, Bellafill’s results last up to five years for most patients when used on nasolabial folds (smile lines). This is because Bellafill stimulates the natural production of collagen in your skin by creating a “scaffold” where your collagen can form. This sturdy foundation helps to reduce smile lines and wrinkles to give you a younger, more refreshed look. For acne scars, results may last for up to 12 months.
What is Bellafill good for?
Bellafill is a dermal filler that works to reduce wrinkles, fine lines, smile lines, and even acne scars on the face. It improves your facial contours for a smoother, rejuvenated look.
Does Bellafill look natural?
Because Bellafill naturally stimulates the natural production of collagen, it not only fills in lines and wrinkles, it creates one of the most natural-looking outcomes of most commonly-used cosmetic fillers.
