Bellafill is different from temporary injectable wrinkle fillers. The unique microspheres in Bellafill are not absorbed by the body and provide the support your skin needs for natural, long lasting results.
What is Bellafill?
Bellafill® is a polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) collagen filler. The collagen in Bellafill® provides immediate volume and lift, while the PMMA microspheres remain in place and create a matrix that supports collagen production in your skin for lasting improvement. 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. Bellafill is not new, however; it has been used to correct nasolabial folds since 2006.
How Does Bellafill Work?
Bellafill® works by adding volume below the scar to lift it to the level of surrounding skin, making the area appear smoother. The PMMA in Bellafill then works with your body’s natural processes to help replace lost collagen.
What Can You Expect from a Bellafill Treatment?
Treatment with Bellafill is a simple, in-office procedure with no downtime. You can immediately resume your normal daily activities, with nearly instant correction of pitted acne scars. Results are long lasting; in fact, 90% of patients treated were satisfied at 12 months.
Bellafill® requires a skin test to identify patients who may be allergic to the lidocaine or bovine collagen in Bellafill® Call today to schedule your consultation.
