Restylane vs. Bellafill: Which Dermal Filler is Right for You?

As we age, our skin starts to sag, and we lose facial volume, resulting in wrinkles and hollow areas. 

Dermal fillers can help restore a more youthful appearance by smoothing wrinkles, filling in hollow areas, and plumping up the lips.

Two popular dermal fillers are Restylane and Bellafill.

While both are effective, they have different compositions and are used to address different concerns.

Restylane, a versatile hyaluronic acid-based filler, is well-tolerated by most patients.

This naturally occurring substance in the body aids in skin hydration and plumpness.

When injected, Restylane binds to water molecules, filling wrinkles and adding volume.

Results generally last six to nine months, with touch-ups needed to maintain them.

Restylane treats cheeks, lips, nasolabial folds, and is reversible, enabling providers to dissolve it if patients are unsatisfied.

Bellafill is a collagen-based filler that contains polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) microspheres.

Collagen is a protein that provides structure to the skin, while PMMA is a synthetic material that is biocompatible and non-allergenic.

When injected into the skin, the collagen in Bellafill provides immediate volume, while the PMMA microspheres stimulate the production of new collagen, providing long-lasting results.


One of the biggest advantages of Bellafill is its longevity.

While most dermal fillers last around six to twelve months, Bellafill can last up to five years or more.

This makes it an excellent option for patients who want to achieve long-lasting results without the need for frequent touch-up injections.

Bellafill is an ideal choice for treating wrinkles and acne scars.

It is not reversible, so patients should be certain that they are happy with their results before receiving the injections.

Choosing the Right Filler

Deciding which filler to choose depends on several factors, including the area being treated, the patient’s aesthetic goals, and the healthcare provider’s expertise.

Restylane is an excellent choice for patients who want a versatile and reversible filler that can be used to treat a variety of areas, while Bellafill is ideal for patients who want long-lasting results.

It’s essential to choose a qualified healthcare provider who can help you determine which filler is right for you.
