If you would like to diminish the appearance of smile lines or acne scars, Bellafill® is an injectable treatment that can deliver results that last up to 5 years or longer. At Lewis Dermatology & Associates, we offer Bellafill® and other dermal filler and injectable treatments to the residents of the Bronx, Queens, Brooklyn and the nearby communities of New York.
What is Bellafill®?
Bellafill® is a dermal filler that not only restores natural-looking volume to the skin, but also stimulates natural collagen production to deliver incredibly long-lasting results. The Bellafill® formula boosts skin volume immediately upon injection, but its unique formula provides a foundation for future collagen production. Even after the initial formula is broken down by the body, the foundation it leaves is built upon by your body’s natural collagen. This results in a truly natural-looking appearance that can last for many years to come – much longer than other dermal filler and injectable treatments! Primarily, Bellafill® is used for the treatment of smile lines and acne scarring.
How Much does Bellafill® Cost?
The price of your Bellafill® treatment will vary depending on the size of your treatment area and the amount of product needed to help you achieve your desired results. To get a better idea of how much your Bellafill® treatment will cost, come in for a private consultation with Dr. Amy B. Lewis and her staff.

What Can I Expect During my Bellafill® Treatment?
Before your Bellafill® treatment begins, Dr. Lewis may apply a topical anesthetic to your desired treatment area. This is to ensure you remain as comfortable as possible throughout the entirety of your treatment. Once numb, Dr. Lewis will make a series of strategically placed Bellafill® injections into these areas. The entire treatment process typically takes under an hour to complete, after which patients are able to return to their normal daily activities including work.
What Results Can I Expect from Bellafill®?
Following your Bellafill® treatment, there may be some minor bruising, swelling or soreness in the treatment area, but these typically resolve within a few days and will not impact your ability to resume your usual activities. The results from Bellafill® will be visible immediately upon injection, so you will notice enhanced skin volume and smoothness before even leaving your appointment. These results will become more noticeable as any side effects fade in the days following treatment. Although the Bellafill® formula will start to get broken down by the body within a year of treatment, it also stimulates natural collagen production that will gradually replace the dermal filler gel. Therefore, results for Bellafill® can last up to five years after your treatment. However, for the treatment of acne scars, the results of Bellafill® typically last about one year.
Am I a Good Candidate for Bellafill®?
If you are looking for a minimally invasive, non-surgical treatment to reduce the appearance of smile lines or acne scars, you may be a good candidate for Bellafill® treatments. The best way to find out if Bellafill® treatments are right for you is to schedule a one-on-one consultation with Dr. Amy B. Lewis. She’ll be happy to sit down with you, listen to your concerns, evaluate your goals, and develop a fully personalized treatment plan to help you reach all of your aesthetic and skin health goals.
