Wrinkles can be caused by several factors, loss of fat, loss of collagen or bone. The fat pads in our cheeks may slide downward toward the mouth, which can cause the skin to wrinkle or fold, creating the “smile lines” from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds). Bellafill effectively addresses volume loss to reverse the signs of aging.
What is Bellafill and how is it unique?
Bellafill is a smooth, collagen-based filler with PMMA microspheres. The PMMA re-creates the firm structure of younger-looking skin by supporting production of your body’s own collagen.
How Bellafill works
Bellafill replaces the volume lost rather than just filling the wrinkles for results that are immediate and lasting. The injectable gel is comprised of 80% purified collagen gel and 20% PMMA (polymethylmethacrylate) microspheres.
Bellafill keeps on working
Bellafill is different. It restores rather than just fills for natural, enduring results. In the latest clinical study, satisfaction and effectiveness were established through 5 years. Over time, the collagen gel is absorbed by the body. The PMMA microspheres remain in place once the collagen component is resorbed and create a matrix that supports production of the body’s own collagen for a lasting correction. The microspheres are half the diameter of a human hair, so small that they are virtually invisible to the eye. The microspheres are made of polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA), one of the most widely used materials in medicine for 65 years.

Bellafill for Acne Scars
Acne is the most common skin disorder in the U.S., affecting up to 40–50 million Americans. Unfortunately a large number of individuals who suffer from cystic acne will develop visible scars.
The treatment of scars remains challenging and the presence of scars have been shown to cause high levels of anxiety and self-consciousness. In an independent study 92% of people said if their acne scars were healed, it would restore or improve their self-confidence.
Bellafill, is an acne scar treatment, approved by the FDA, that is proven to be safe and effective with minimal to no downtime. Bellafill is approved for the correction of moderate to severe, atrophic, distensible facial acne scars on the cheek in patients over the age of 21 years.
Bellafill works in two ways:
The collagen provides immediate volume below pitted acne scars to lift them to the level of the surrounding skin.
The PMMA microspheres create a matrix that supports your body’s own collagen production.
Bellafill® is the only dermal filler on the market approved for the correction of moderate to severe, atrophic, distensible facial acne scars on the cheek in patients over the age of 21 years. It was approved for the correction of nasolabial folds in 2006.
Is Bellafill right for me?
Bellafill® requires a skin test to identify patients who may be allergic to the lidocaine or bovine collagen in Bellafill®
It’s a difference you can feel
Bellafill adds volume below the scar to lift it to the level of surrounding skin for the smoother skin you’ve dreamed of.
