What is Bellafill®?
Bellafill® is a FDA approved smooth collagen-based dermal filler with polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) microspheres. The collagen gel in Bellafill® provides immediate volume and lift to correct wrinkles or acne scars. The PMMA microspheres remain in place and create a base that provides structural support for smoother-looking skin.
What are the microspheres in Bellafill® made of?
The microspheres are made of polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA), a biocompatible material that has been used in medical implants for 65 years.
How does Bellafill® work?
The collagen in Bellafill® provides immediate volume and lift. Over time, the collagen is reabsorbed while the PMMA microspheres remain in place and create a base that provides structural support for smoother-looking skin.
How is Bellafill® injected?
Bellafill® is injected underneath the wrinkle, just above the skin’s fat layer. Bellafill® provides the soft, supportive foundation for long-lasting wrinkle correction.
What is the downtime?
You can return to normal activities right away. You may experience temporary swelling, redness, pain, bruising, lumps/bumps, itching and discoloration at the treatment site. These side effects are usually temporary and typically resolve within 1–7 days.
How long does Bellafill® last?
Satisfaction and effectiveness for the correction of nasolabial folds have been established through 5 years. Effectiveness for the correction of acne scars has been proven through 12 months.
