Facial Fillers & Skin Peels
Non-Surgical Cosmetic Procedures
Finally, a semi-permanent, long lasting filler that restores volume, treats nasolabial folds and acne scars!
What Is 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’s a unique, injectable collagen filler with microspheres that can instantly smooth facial wrinkles (nasolabial folds) for beautiful, natural-looking results that last.
Is Bellafill® Right For You?
Bellafill is also used for treating depressed facial acne scars. Many patients who have suffered from acne are left with depressions in the skin and textural changes. In these cases, Bellafill treatment restores volume to the scarred tissue and is the only dermal filler proven to stimulate the body’s own collagen production.
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, giving natural and 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.
In some cases, requiring major volume restoration or correction of severe acne scarring, Bellafill is administered in multiple stages to obtain optimal results and help restore and rebuild the skin’s matrix for long-term correction.
What To Expect With Bellafill® Treatment
Enjoy a youthful look that lasts!
Treatment with Bellafill is very similar to treatments 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.
Are There Any Possible Side Effects?
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, an OTL Head and Neck Surgeon practicing Facial Plastic Surgery. Be sure to call Dr. Solomon’s office 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.

Is Bellafill® Safe?
The latest data has shown that Bellafill is completely safe. The filler has undergone five years of extensive studies to prove its safety in various treatment conditions. In fact, Bellafill has been placed through the longest and most extensive study and testing stage of any dermal filler product. This helps prove the safety and viability of Bellafill in helping patients achieve their ideal skin.
When Will I Begin to See Results?
One of the great advantages of the Bellafill treatment is that results from the procedure are almost immediate. You will see visible improvement immediately after the treatment with optimal results appearing in three months. Some patients notice further improvement up to a year after being injected. Bellafill works to replace lost volume in the skin below the indentation area, for a significant and quick improvement in skin conditioning.
Is There Required Downtime For The Procedure?
We know that many of our patients are working professionals who simply don’t have the flexibility to take time off work and other activities after their procedure in order to rest. Fortunately, the Bellafill treatment has been designed so that you don’t have to take significant time away from work. Patients can immediately begin resuming normal activities after their Bellafill treatment. However, you may experience some swelling, redness, and bruising as the treatment begins to take effect. This swelling rarely lasts more than ten days while the overall treatment will assure you have exceptional-looking skin for a period of 12 months or more!
Am I A Candidate For The Bellafill Treatment?
In order to move forward with a Bellafill treatment, it’s important to establish if you are a good candidate first. Your age, your medical history, your personal cosmetic expectations, and your history with facial cosmetic procedures all play a role in determining your candidacy. It’s also important to ensure that do not have any contraindications, these will be reviewed during your consultation with Dr. Philip Solomon’s medical team.
Eligibility For Treatment
Adult men and women, who have undergone the required skin test, are eligible for the treatment. There have not been any studies done on the safety of the product for women that are breastfeeding or pregnant. There have not been any studies done on the safety of the procedure for use on anyone under the age of 18.
What Are The Main Benefits Of Bellafill®?
One of the leading reasons so many patients now choose Bellafill is that they can experience immediate results from the treatment, as well as the duration of its results. The process is also one of the best and most natural ways to correct the aging process and achieve beautifully smooth skin. It’s a process that has been proven safe and effective for a broad range of patient types and when completed by an experienced injector and surgeon, such as Dr. Solomon, can offer proven value over the long-term.
