Bellafill Procedures

Finally a long lasting filler that restores volume, treats folds and acne scars!

For those looking for an injectable wrinkle filler that provides lasting wrinkle correction, ask Dr. Philip Solomon, Head and Neck surgeon practicing in facial cosmetic and plastic surgery about Bellafill®.


Bellafill® is an FDA and Health Canada approved dermal filler for the correction of facial wrinkles known as nasolabial folds or smile lines. It is unique, injectable collagen filler with microspheres that can instantly smooth facial wrinkles (nasolabial folds) for beautiful, natural-looking results that last.


Bellafill is also used in treatment of depressed facial acne scars. In most patients who have suffered from acne and have consequential scarring, are left with depressions in the skin and textural changes. In these cases, Bellafill treatment restores the volume to the scarred tissue and is the only dermal filler proven to stimulate the body’s own collagen production. For these patients, Bellafill can provide long term correction of acne scarring since it also contains tiny microspheres that are made of polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA), one of the most widely used materials in medicine for over 65 years. PMMA is a non-degradable inert material used for various medical purposes over the last century. Dr. Philip Solomon often uses Bellafill in conjunction with Erbium or C02 Laser Resurfacing and subcision for most effective long term results for acne scarring.


How Bellafill® Works

Bellafill® replaces lost volume in the skin below the wrinkle for results that are immediate and lasting. The injectable gel is comprised of 80% purified collagen and 20% PMMA (polymethylmethacrylate) microspheres. Bellafill® is different from other dermal fillers as it restores rather than just fills for natural enduring results.

Bellafill® offers a new level of filler rejuvenation. In addition to immediately adding volume to smooth away facial wrinkles known as smile lines, Bellafill® helps your skin re-create its own firmer structure for beautiful, younger-looking skin and lasting results.


In some cases requiring major volume restoration or correction of severe acne scarring, Bellafill is treated in multiple stages to obtain optimal results and help restore and rebuild the skins matrix for long term correction.


What to expect with Bellafill treatment

Enjoy a youthful look that lasts!

Treatment with Bellafill® is very similar to treatment with conventional injectable fillers. Bellafill® contains lidocaine to lessen the discomfort from the procedure. With proper placement, Bellafill® cannot be felt after treatment. You may see immediate results in wrinkle correction and can return to your normal daily activities after the procedure.


As with any injectable filler, you may experience temporary pain, swelling and reddening at the treatment site. These side effects are usually gone within a few days. Occasionally, there is transient bruising that typically disappears within 7 days. Less common side effects include rash and itching more than 48 hours after treatment, persistent swelling or redness, and increased sensitivity at injection sites. Two other rare potential side effects of all fillers may be lumps and granulomas, both of which may be treated by Dr. Philip Solomon MD FRCSC. Be sure to call Dr. Solomon immediately if you notice any unusual skin reactions around the treatment area.  A follow-up is suggested at 4-6 weeks. This also allows you to decide if you would like to further enhance or correct the area.


Patients who have a history of severe allergies, known bovine collagen allergies, are allergic to lidocaine, prone to thick scar formation and/or excessive scarring should not receive Bellafill®. For more Safety Information please consult with Dr. Philip Solomon and the patient labeling that can be found by visiting www.bellafill.com.
