What is Bellafill?
This is a great question! Bellafill is a long term or permanent filler. As a result, it has a lot more value than a "rental filler" like Radiesse and Belatero, which have to be re-injected about every 12 to 24 months. It is "permanent" or at least long lasting (the studies are now out 9 years without any volume loss) however you better be careful about who injects it as a result. It produces phenomenal results in the right hand and for the patients. However, there is no margin for error. In addition, I do not recommend looking for "deals" as you may be getting what you pay for. This is your face and you want the best not the cheapest.
I hope that helps.
Bellafill is a permanent filler consisting of Bovine collagen and PMMA. The collagen provides volume and lift, while PMMA provides structural support. Bellafill is indicated for the correction of nasolabial folds, as well as moderate to severe acne scars. I recommend a consultation with an experienced injector to find the best option.
Hope this helps,

Bellafill is a polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) collagen filler. The cost varies between location and providers. Bellafill is used to treat areas of volume loss in the face. Patients see visible correction with the very first treatment. The collagen in Bellafill provides immediate volume and lift while the PMMA microspheres remain in place and create a matrix that supports collagen production in your skin for lasting improvement. Next step for you is to schedule a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon to discuss your options and goals.

Get Clear on The Results You Want-Wrinkle Treatment and Contouring with Belafill
Belafill is what is considered a permanent filler and is a great long term solution for wrinkles and contouring. Rather than looking at prices, I suggest a formal in person consultation to see what fillers would be helpful for you and what your desired results are. That will answer whether this is right for you. Best, Dr. Emer.
Bellafill is the longest lasting filler on the market with a safety study going out 5 years. It most likely is a permanent filler so you need to pick a very experienced provider. It is made of PMMA, which is a collagen stimulator and Bovine collagen. The Bovine collagen is degraded by the body over 6-8 weeks. There are a few people allergic to the collagen so a skin test must be performed 3-4 weeks ahead of time. The PMMA can't be degraded by the body so it creates a long lasting collagen stimulation and fill.
