What is Bellafill?
Bellafill® is an injectable filler that uses an innovative blend of 2 distinct components to create results that are both immediate and long lasting. Suspended within its smooth collagen gel base are tiny polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) microspheres. Once it's injected, the collagen goes to work immediately, adding natural-looking volume to soften smile lines or acne scars. Over time, your body naturally metabolizes the collagen — but that doesn't mean your results disappear. The PMMA microspheres work as a scaffolding system, supporting the development of your own collagen and laying the foundation for long-term smoothness.
What is it used for?
Bellafill is used for the lines around the mouth and to improve the appearance of acne scars.
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 alternatives?
Juvederm filler can also be used for the lines around the mouth but typically doesn't last as long as Bellafill.
