Bellafill® Treatment in Wilmington, NC

A solution to smile lines with longevity to grin about, Bellafill® is the one-of-a-kind dermal filler that tackles acne scarring and nasolabial folds. Acne scarring results in stiffer tissue, whereas nasolabial folds develop when muscles cause deep lines in the skin over time. While these issues can make you look older than you feel, you don’t have to put up with them any longer. Discover how Wilmington Dermatology Center can help you turn back the clock on your skin with Bellafill®!

What is Bellafill® Treatment?

Bellafill® is an innovative and long-lasting solution to nasolabial folds and scarring. If you love the lasting improvements and immediate correction of traditional fillers but want visible benefits for up to five years, Bellafill® is a great option. Once injected, it stimulates your body’s natural collagen growth, the protein necessary for keeping your skin firm and bouncy, which means you won’t need to get it touched up as often as you would with traditional dermal fillers. The collagen gel works instantly to reduce the look of smile lines, while the PMMA microspheres create a scaffold for your natural collagen to develop onto, creating volume that smooths over wrinkles.

I can’t possibly convey how pleased I am with this practice but I’ll do my best. I did a 6 month course of a medicine which required monthly appointments. They pre scheduled everything and made it absolutely flawless. My rx was always called in immediately and there were zero hiccups throughout the process. They were responsive and easily reachable the entirety, as well as supportive. The girls at the front are also so nice and pleasant along with the facilities. Excellent derm, wouldn’t go anywhere else.

The doctor is super nice and won't perform any cosmetic procedures that she thinks would not be worth doing. I do wish that she would have done a small bit of VBeam for me, but her candid opinion on the veins under my eyes and even fillers, kept me from spending a lot of money on things i wouldnt be happy with. Many doctors just want to make money and wouldn't care. Dr. George is more interested in doing the right thing. I would return for skin checks if they accepted my insurance.

How Do Bellafill® Injections work?

During your complimentary consultation, our team will develop a Bellafill® treatment plan based on your personal skin goals. We’ll consider how many injections are necessary, what areas we’ll treat, and any contraindications in your medical history.

What is the history of Bellafill®?

Bellafill® is recognized as the first and only dermal filler on the market to safely and instantly add volume while correcting nasolabial folds. In October 2006 and under the name ArteFill®, Bellafill® became FDA Approved for treating nasolabial folds, known as smile lines. In December 2014, Bellafill® was approved by the FDA for the correction of moderate to severe atrophic, distensible facial acne scars on the cheek for patients aged 21 and over.

Prior to Treatment

Before we begin your treatment, we’ll have you come in for a patch test to ensure that you won’t have any allergic reactions to Bellafill®. We’ll also go over what Bellafill® can do for you during this consultation to determine if it’s appropriate for you and your unique features.

During Treatment

During treatment, we will apply a lidocaine-based cream to numb the treatment area for around 10 to 15 minutes. We’ll then clean and prepare the targeted area for injection. Overall, Bellafill® takes around 15 to 60 minutes to inject. We’ll also provide a cooling agent to soothe your skin and decrease the risk of swelling.

After Treatment & Results

Afterward, we’ll give you an ice pack to keep the swelling down. There may also be redness at the site of injection, but this is completely normal. You’ll notice a difference within a week, with optimum results around the three-month mark.

Am I a Candidate for Bellafill® Injections?

If you’re looking for a long-lasting and safe option to soften nasolabial folds, then Bellafill® is most likely right for you. Both men and women can enjoy the benefits of this collagen rebuilding filler, and we offer free consultations to determine if Bellafill®, or another product, is best suited for your needs. Patients must be 21 years of age or older, and receive the required skin patch test prior to treatment. To ensure that your treatment is safe and effective, we’ll also go over your medical history and assess any allergies you have to determine whether Bellafill® is suitable for you.


How long will my Bellafill® results last?

Under a guided treatment plan, Bellafill® shows results that last up to five years, and up to 12 months when used for acne scarring.

When will I see results?

Bellafill® results are immediate, with mild swelling and sensitivity for up to 24 hours. You’ll begin to see the complete results around three months after initial treatment.

Is one brand or product better than another?

While some products may create similar results, there’s no other injectable filler product with as long-lasting and immediate results as Bellafill®.

Can I schedule a Bellafill® treatment the day before a big event?

As with any injectable product, Bellafill® treatment has the potential for down time. While not everyone will bruise, there will be swelling at the injection site and potential for bruising that lasts up to one week. Usually, injection point swelling and redness is gone within 24 hours. We recommend scheduling Bellafill® in the weeks prior to a big event.

Can I get Bellafill® done the same day as other injectable procedures?

Yes, you can receive Bellafill® the same day you receive other injectable treatments such as neurotoxins like BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport® and Xeomin®. We do, however, prefer to treat after any laser procedures, as opposed to simultaneously with your Bellafill® injections.

Do Bellafill® injections hurt?

With the topical numbing applied before the procedure, patients describe Bellafill® as a pinch with pressure. Lidocaine, a common local anesthetic, is mixed with the product to make the process even more comfortable. Most patients may experience mild soreness up to 24 hours after the procedure.

How does Bellafill® lift and smooth the wrinkles in the treated area?

The collagen in Bellafill® provides immediate volume and lift. Over time, this collagen is reabsorbed while the PMMA microspheres remain in place and create a base that provides structural support for smoother-looking skin that collagen forms around.

Does it really matter who does my Bellafill®?

Any authorized healthcare provider can technically use Bellafill®, but it’s highly recommended to see a provider with advanced techniques and knowledge in facial aesthetic and cosmetic procedures, which is why Wilmington Dermatology Center is the best choice for you. With our highly skilled professionals and breadth of experience, we’ll make sure you get your desired results.

How much does Bellafill® cost?

Wilmington Dermatology Center determines the total cost based on the need for correction.

  • Partial correction — $2,800
  • Full Facial Correction — $4,250
  • Acne Scarring — $1,800 per syringe (number of syringes will vary per patient)

Our team can give you an estimated price prior to the procedure.

What happens if I need more correction, or it didn’t quite work in an area?

As a practice based on patient satisfaction and results, Wilmington Dermatology Center is happy to perform adjustments after your treatment. We are true believers that less is more, so there are many cases where we start more conservative and can add more to the treatment if necessary to give patients more natural results.
