Bellafill® in San Diego & Carlsbad

Tired of needing to continually touch up your wrinkle filler? Bellafill at our San Diego and Carlsbad medical spa locations gives our patients from Encinitas, Oceanside, San Marcos, and other nearby cities long-lasting results.

Bellafill® (formerly Artefill) is the only dermal filler that stimulates collagen growth long-term to help maintain your youthful appearance for up to 5 years. Treatment results with Bellafill provide the longest-lasting wrinkle correction available without surgery. Bellafill is a unique combination of purified bovine collagen gel, tiny synthetic beads (polymethymethacrylate) and lidocaine (anesthetic agent). Bellafill’s status as a long-lasting filler has been confirmed in studies, including this 2015 study that included 1542 patients.

How Bellafill Works

Bellafill contains very tiny round smooth non-resorbable particles of polymehtymethacrylate (PMMA) that are carried in purified bovine collagen gel. Following injection, Bellafill instantly reduces the look of smile lines, while the microspheres create a scaffold onto which your own natural collagen can develop for long-term wrinkle correction.

The intended result is to smooth out your nasolabial folds and give you a more youthful look.

What Is Bellafill Treatment Like?

Bellafill will require a skin test 28 days prior to treatment. If your test is negative, you may begin treatment immediately.

Bellafill contains lidocaine to minimize post-treatment tenderness. The needle used for Bellafill is very fine to minimize the pain with injection. An injection of numbing medicine (Lidocaine) or a topical numbing cream may be used, if you desire.

Because Bellafill is not reabsorbed by your body, it should be injected in stages by a Bellafill-trained provider over a period of several weeks to months. The injections are done under the surface of your skin. Bellafill fills the gaps, raising the skin to its normal height. Over time (2 to 3 months), your body will anchor Bellafill for a long-lasting effect. It takes about 3 months for the full effect to be seen.

The treatment is done in our doctor’s office and takes only a few minutes.

Your Safety Is
Our #1 Priority

Since 1988, more than 36,000 patients have had safe, successful procedures at La Jolla Cosmetic Medical Spa.

What Can Bellafill Treat?

In addition to its ability to smooth smile lines for up to 5 years, Bellafill is also FDA approved to soften the appearance of acne scars for up to a year—and it’s the only approved long-term filler that’s approved to do so.

Recovery Following Bellafill Treatment

As with any injectable wrinkle filler, local swelling or redness may occur immediately following treatment and they are temporary.

Bellafill actually had fewer severe complications during U.S. clinical trials than injectable collagen. Rare problems may be persistent that include lumpiness or granulomas. These conditions are easily treated by your provider. More details will be given at consultation.

Other Wrinkle Treatment Options

Many people choose to live with their wrinkles. Correction with Restylane®,Juvéderm®, your own fat, or other similar products is available.
