Bellafill is the longest lasting dermal filler available with the longest safety study of any dermal filler on the market. Bellafill is a semi-permanent dermal filler that lasts up to 5 years! Yes 5 years!
Bellafill is FDA approved, made of 30% bovine collagen and PMMA (polymethylmethacrylate) spheres that stimulate your own collagen production. PMMA has been used in medicine to make corneal implants and to repair fractured infant joints. It has been used in Esthetic Medicine in Europe for over 35 years. Bellafill is fantastic for performing our favorite liquid face lift, and is an excellent choice for the longest lasting cheeks. It has a wonderful soft smooth consistency, yet holds body and lifts nicely. Wouldn’t it be nice to have your filler last for 5 years! We are happy to be one of the few clinics to offer Seattle Bellafill treatments at this time. When selecting an Bellafill injector you want someone certified, experienced, an artist who has good taste, who listens to your concerns carefully. Dominique Well, ARNP, certified in Aesthetic Medicine is known to be one of the best injectors in Seattle. Well Medical Arts is a certified Belladiamond provider.
