Bellafill®

What is Bellafill?

Bellafill® is a smooth, collagen-based dermal filler with polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) microspheres. The collagen gel in Bellafill® provides immediate volume and lift to correct wrinkles and acne scars. Once injected, these microspheres stay in place and create a base that provides structural support for smoother-looking skin.

How long does it last?

The effectiveness and patient satisfaction rates of Bellafill® have been established through 5 years when used to correct nasolabial folds, and 12 months when used to correct acne scars.

What are the microspheres in Bellafill® made of?

The microspheres are made of polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA), a biocompatible material that has been safely used in medical implants and other devices for more than 65 years.

How does it work?

The collagen in Bellafill® provides immediate volume and lift for results that you can enjoy as soon as you leave the office. Over time, the collagen is reabsorbed while the PMMA microspheres are left behind. They create a supportive base that allows more of your own collagen to develop, resulting in smoother-looking skin in the long term.

What’s the downtime?

You can return to your normal activities right away. However, you may experience some temporary swelling, redness, pain, bruising, lumps or bumps, itching, and discoloration at the treatment site. Keep in mind that these symptoms are usually temporary, resolving within 1 to 7 days.

Who can receive treatment with Bellafill®?

To be eligible for Bellafill®, patients must be 21 or older and receive the required skin test prior to treatment. In clinical studies, Bellafill® was shown to work in both men and women with a variety of skin types. If you have a history of severe allergies, are allergic to bovine collagen, are allergic to lidocaine, have a bleeding disorder, or are prone to irregular scarring, let your doctor know prior to your treatment. For a full list of contraindications, contact your doctor.
