Does Bella Injectable Filler work permanently?
Doctor Answers 13
Is Bellafill Permanent?
Bellafill is essentially permanent. It is a particulate filler that is composed
of a very small amount of PMMA or tiny (40 micron) beads that act as a bio-stimulant. They are non-resorbable. The rest of each syringe of Bellafill (90%)
is comprised of collagen. Bovine
collagen is an old style filler that only lasts 3 months. As it is absorbed over the 3 to 6 months
after an injection of Bellafill, the PMMA stimulates your cells to make new
tissue, replacing the collagen.
The formal FDA studies show that Bellafill will last AT
LEAST 5 YEARS and there are informal studies going back to the original formulations
that show t is still there at 15 years!
I have many patients who still have nice volume replacement at 9 years.
Because it lasts so long, you should be aware of the risks
and benefits of these types of fillers.
I have added a video that may help you.
I hope that helps.
Bellafill complications and correction

Plastic surgeons and head and neck surgeons use this same molecule in a sheet form to reconstruct membranes of the neck. That was told to me personally by a plastic surgeon who is a personal patient of mine. Now, why would they use a temporary molecule to replace such an important structure in the neck? They wouldn't.
It really is the time for patients to begin to seek out a more permanent correction.

We have enjoyed the long-lasting effects of Bellafill in our practice. I recommend consulting with an experienced physician to determine which filler or surgical treatment is appropriate for you.
Best of luck!
Bellafill immediately adds volume to wrinkles known as smile lines for a smoother, more youthful appearance. In addition, Bellafill re-creates the firm structure of younger-looking skin by supporting production of your body’s own collagen. The beautiful benefits of Bellafill are immediate correction and lasting improvement with visible benefits through 5 years for wrinkles.
Yes, Bellafill, formerly called Artefill is a semi permanent filler. Results are immediate and swelling is less than hylouranic acid fillers such as Juvederm, Restylane, Belotero and Voluma. I love Bellafill and the results are amazing. Make sure to go to a very experienced injector when using longer lasting fillers. Go slow, build up, it's always easy to add, but unlike the HA's it cannot be reversed. Lasts up to 5 years!

Bellafill injectable restores rather then just fills, for natural, enduring results. Bellafill is not permanent and the amount of time that it last is different from every patient. Bellafill is a bio stimulant and works with your body to jump start your collagen growth with the PMMA's that are placed in the areas that you had filled. Bellafill is a great product, and i highly recommend it ! I hope this helps you on your journey!:)
