How Many Bellafill Syringes Are Required for the Face?

Without any other information, it is hard to say how many syringes you will need to get the correction that you need. Typically the range is somewhere between 1 and 10 syringes per treatment depending upon the patient, their goals and their needs. The average is about 5 syringes. Remember that there is not a lot in a syringe and one of the problems we see is people not getting enough and then voicing their dissatisfaction by saying “it did not do much”.

I have added a video that shows how much his in a syringe for you.

I hope that helps.

Best regards.

8 syringes of Bellafill is not too much

Truth be known, you will probably need more if you are above 50. At one treatment, 8 is alot but very tolerable. There isn't much swelling with Bellafill because it contains collagen and doesn't contain HA. Cannulas will made your downtime very short.

How many syringes of bellafill

Bellafil is a smooth, collagen based dermal facial filler. It restores,  rather than just fills for natural, enduring results. Based on age, loss of collagen, and texture of skin can determine how many syringes you need. Typically the range is somewhere between 1 and 10 syringes per treatment depending upon the patient, their goals and their needs. The average is about 5 syringes.Bellafill is very tolerable and is great for all skin types, men and women.
