Unlike hyaluronic acid fillers and collagen injections, which often dissolve within a few months, Bellafill creates a lasting improvement in your skin. Its smooth collagen gel base houses tiny polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) microspheres. These microspheres are about the same diameter as a human hair, so it’s almost impossible to see them.
Once injected, Bellafill immediately reduces the look of lines, wrinkles, and scars. Over time, your body uses the PMMA microspheres as a “scaffold” onto which your own collagen can develop.
Let’s talk safety
Bellafill is FDA-approved and has been proven safe and effective in rigorously conducted clinical studies. In the largest and longest safety study ever conducted on cheek fillers, face fillers, wrinkle fillers, laugh lines, Bellafill performed exceptionally well. At the study’s completion, 83% of patients were still satisfied with their results 5 years after treatment.
Bellafill is the only dermal filler on the market with 5-year safety and efficacy data. Its satisfaction data and safety profile are unmatched, making it one of the safest fillers on the market to date.
As with other injectable fillers, you may experience bruising, itching, pain, swelling, redness, discoloration, lumpiness, bumps, acne, or increased sensitivity at the treatment site. These side effects usually resolve themselves quickly.
Bellafill for Nasolabial Folds
How It Works
Bellafill is an injectable filler that’s FDA approved to treat nasolabial folds. These folds, sometimes called “smile lines,” extend from the nose to the corners of the mouth. Bellafill® provides instant smoothness, with long-lasting results: In the longest and largest study ever conducted on dermal fillers, Bellafill was proven to be effective through five years. That means that you can enjoy your results for much longer than you would with hyaluronic acid-based fillers.
Bellafill® has 2 main components:
- Smooth collagen gel (80%) forms the base of Bellafill, creating smooth, supple volume beneath the surface of the nasolabial folds.
- Polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) microspheres (20%) are suspended within the collagen gel. These form a sturdy scaffold where your own natural collagen grows. Thanks to its two innovative components, Bellafill creates instant results that you can enjoy as soon as you leave the office. As the original collagen gel fades away, your body naturally replaces it with your own collagen around the microspheres, for unparalleled long-term smoothness.
Candidacy & Safety
The best Bellafill candidates are women or men, 21 and older, who are bothered by the look of their nasolabial folds and wish to avoid the regular touch-up treatments associated with other fillers.
Bellafill is FDA approved, and both its collagen gel and its PMMA microspheres have established records of safety. PMMA is an acrylic material that’s widely used in medicine.
Bellafill is safe for skin of all types and colors. However, an allergy test is required prior to treatment to make sure prospective patients aren’t sensitive to the product.
Bellafill for Acne Scars
How It Works
Bellafill is an injectable filler that’s FDA approved to treat certain types of acne scars. Bellafill yields instant smoothness that you can appreciate as soon as you leave the office — and it’s been clinically proven to last through twelve months. Its two important components work with your skin for soft smoothness that looks and feels very natural:
- Collagen gel (80%) forms the smooth base of Bellafill, adding instant volume to depressed scars and raising them to a level that’s even with the surrounding skin.
- Polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) microspheres (20%) remain after the body
absorbs the collagen gel, supporting the growth of your own natural collagen
to supplant it.
Candidacy & Safety
Bellafill is approved for use on men and women who are 21 and older. It works on distensible and atrophic acne scars on the cheeks. Distensible scars smooth out when you tug on them; atrophic scars are pitted or
depressed in the skin.
Bellafill is safe on all skin types, textures, and colors, but patients require an allergy test before treatment. Both the collagen gel and PMMA in Bellafill have established safety records. PMMA has long been used in other areas of medicine, such as orthopedic surgery, dentistry, and ophthalmology.
The Patient Experience
Bellafill to reduce acne scars is an outpatient procedure. Treatment begins by cleansing your skin and preparing it for treatment. A series of carefully placed injections then add volume to smooth away deep acne scars. Your treatment is relatively brief, and there is no downtime, so you may return to your normal activities as soon as you leave the treatment session.
Although significant side effects are uncommon, you may experience localized sensations, such as itching, bruising, swelling, redness, discoloration, bumps, or increased sensitivity. These effects are typically temporary and will go away on their own.
