Question: I’m looking at my injectable filler options for my hollow cheeks and dark eyelid circles. Why are you such an advocate of Bellafill with so many other fillers on the market?
Answer: There are several important reasons why I, but more importantly, my patients prefer Bellafill, and are willing to pay double for Bellafill compared to temporary fillers.
While a 5 year filler duration is a substantial plus, Bellafill is much more than a 5-year filler. Compared to the 6 month to 2 year duration of temporary fillers, Bellafill results often look better over time. When you hear of a temporary filler lasting one year, this actually means that about half of it is gone in 6-7 months, requiring maintenance treatments sooner than one year. On the other hand, Bellafill can look better 9 months, and even 5 years, after initial treatment. For this reason, Bellafill does not require the frequent and regular maintenance needed with temporary fillers.
Bellafill is also much more versatile than temporary fillers which are more limited in the areas in which they can be safely used. While the official FDA study focused on the nasolabial smile lines, Bellafill is commonly used in practice for volume loss in the cheeks, temples and lower lid hollows. It is also popular for the nasolabial smile and marionette grooves as well as droopy mouth corners. I also use it for deep forehead frown lines, depressed scars and acne scars. I have yet to come across a temporary filler that can be safely used in so many facial areas or at so many different tissue levels.
Of the many FDA-approved injectable fillers on the U.S. market, Bellafill has been studied in more patients, 1500, than any temporary filler. Moreover, Bellafill’s granuloma rate is as low as or even lower, than the majority of FDA-approved temporary fillers.
