Bellafill®

What is Bellafill?

Bellafill® is a unique, injectable collagen filler with microspheres of polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) that can instantly smooth facial wrinkles for natural-looking correction that is proven to last. Visible correction can be seen with the very first treatment.

Treatment with Bellafill® is very similar to treatment with conventional fillers. Bellafill® immediately adds volume to wrinkles for a more youthful appearance. Bellafill® also re-creates the firm structure of younger-looking skin by supporting production of your body’s own collagen.

How does Bellafill work?

  • In the world of injectables, Bellafill® is distinctive. The collagen immediately adds volume, and the PMMA microspheres create a matrix that supports your body’s own collagen production.
  • The collagen in Bellafill® provides immediate volume and lift while the PMMA microspheres remain in place and create a matrix that promotes and supports collagen production in your skin for lasting improvement.
  • PMMA helps replace lost collagen by working with your body’s natural processes. PMMA is the same substance used on knee and hip replacement pieces to help the body’s natural adherence process accept the replacement part.
  • 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.
  • Bellafill has been clinically proven to last 5 years, which makes it the longest-lasting filler available.
  • Bellafill® requires a skin test to identify patients who may be allergic to to the lidocaine or bovine collagen in Bellafill®.
  • A simple, in-office treatment with little to no downtime. You can immediately resume your normal daily activities.

Who is a candidate for Bellafill?

Over time, we lose volume in our faces, increasing the chances for wrinkles and folds to appear. 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® treats wrinkles caused by this volume loss. A Bellafill candidate is one who would benefit from replacing volume. Patients with “filler fatigue” are also excellent candidates for Bellafill. A “filler-fatigued” patient has received regular injections of traditional fillers, likes the results, but feels fatigued with how often they have to inject to maintain the desired result. “Wallet fatigue” tends to be a companion condition to “filler fatigue.” Bellafill is a more cost-effective alternative for these patients.

Bellafill is also perfect for treatment of widespread acne scarring on the face. The injection process helps with scar subcision (a time-tested, but labor-intensive treatment), while the new production of collagen helps replenish the skin’s foundation, minimizing the look of acne scars.
