Bellafill for the permanent correction of nasolabial folds

I have now used Bellafill for the past 3 years. I have tested nearly a 100 patients and seen no adverse reactions to the test spots. Allergic reactions to the Collagen portion of Bellafill are possible but very rare. 

Overall I have to say that I am very impressed with Bellafill. Besides the rare occurrence of bruising and swelling I have only seen deeper nodules twice. Both times the "granulomas" resolved with massage and dilute kenelog injection (kenelog 2.5mg/cc 0..2 cc).

I have found Bellafill to be effective for deeper rolling acne scars. I perform subcision with a NoKor needle followed by injection of Bellafill at various levels of the dermis. Deeper laugh lines can also be filled with Bellafill. This is an FDA approved indication.

As an off label use I use Bellafill to augment cheeks and the chin. Deeper layers of Bellafill can also be placed judiciously along the jawline. This results in a lifting of the cheeks and sharper and more well defined demarcation between the cheek and neck. It is ideal for patients who have lost a lot of weight or are experiencing sagging from excessive sun exposure.
