Keeping patient satisfaction as his foremost concern, Dr. Schwartz customarily researches cutting edge advancements in aesthetics in order to determine how to continue to deliver results that will yield rave reviews from his patients.
After weighing his own findings and observations and gleaning patient feedback, he is pleased to offer the injectable Bellafill® as an option for patients wanting a more permanent way to stave off the visible signs of facial aging.
What Is Bellafill®?
Bellafill® is the first FDA-approved filler for nonsurgical facial rejuvenation that works with your body to stimulate new collagen growth while smoothing the skin’s surface. The collagen gel in Bellafill® gives immediate lift and volume to correct fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars and more. Once Bellafill® is injected, the microspheres stay in place and create a base that provides structural support for smoother-looking skin.
How Is Bellafill® Different From Other Fillers And Injectables?
Several factors set Bellafill® apart from the competition. While most fillers are HA (hyaluronic acid) based, Bellafill® is comprised of tiny polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) microspheres in a collagen base that, once injected, trigger the body’s ability to make more collagen around the spheres. Contrary to competing product Sculptra®, which requires multiple treatments over an extended period of time, Bellafill® is the only one of its kind that delivers an immediate result with continued visible improvement over time.
Long-term results without long-term commitment of repeat appointments: Patients do not require repeat visits for additional injections like with hyaluronic acid fillers which generally require touch ups every 4-10 months. Once injected, Bellafill® may last for up to 5 years. Results are natural and stunning. Dr. Schwartz is able to utilize Bellafill® to enhance the volume and contours of the face with a finer and more powerful level of control. Patients avoid the artificial-looking appearance that over-zealous injectors often produce by supplementing the face with too much volume altogether.

What Can Dr. Schwartz Treat With Bellafill®?
Bellafill® is an all-in-one solution for filling facial lines, folds, and helps to correct texture irregularities in the skin such as acne scars. In addition, Bellafill® can safely treat:
- nasolabial folds
- the jawline area
- marionette lines
- eye troughs
- the forehead, neck and temples
Are There Any Side Effects With Bellafill®?
One of the reasons Dr. Schwartz loves Bellafill® so much is because of its limited downtime. After getting Bellafill®, you will be able to return to normal activities right away. Patients may experience swelling, redness, bruising, itching and discoloration, but these are only temporary and will resolve anywhere from within a few hours to a week post-treatment.
Who Is A Good Candidate For Bellafill®?
Candidates for Bellafill® must be 21 or older and have received the required skin test prior to receiving treatment. Patients who consistently need frequent touch ups with HA fillers and who desire a long-term and more permanent solution for facial rejuvenation without repetitive maintenance visits are also candidates for Bellafill®. Patients who are allergic to lidocaine or bovine collagen are contraindicated for treatment with Bellafill®.
