What Is Bellafill Made from?

What Is Bellafill Made From?

Bellafill is an injectable dermal filler that provides support for the skin to correct signs of aging. The treatment has been FDA-approved since 2006 for addressing nasolabial folds. The filler is made from bovine collagen. Collagen forms naturally in your skin to repair it and maintain elasticity. The collagen used in the filler comes from cows and can correct acne scars and wrinkles. It also provides a lifting effect for the skin, heals blemishes, and restores elasticity.

The filler solution also includes lidocaine to soothe the injection area and PMMA for long-term health. PMMA, or polymethyl methacrylate microspheres, support the skin and stimulate natural collagen production.

The Benefits of Treatment

This treatment creates immediate firmness and volume in the skin. With this injectable treatment, patients can improve their lips, eyes, nose, and cheeks. Severe and moderate aging signs can be treated. The injectable is long-lasting and takes minutes to perform. Patients will see significant improvement without surgery.

This treatment can be used to improve facial appearance in the following ways:

  • Remove acne scars
  • Fill in wrinkles and deep lines
  • Firms and smooths skin
  • Reduce nasolabial folds
  • Increase volume or plump cheeks


Who Can Benefit From Treatment?

The treatment can benefit patients of a variety of ages, but patients should be over the age of 21. Both male and female patients can enjoy the treatment, and it is safe for all skin types. The treatment can be a powerful and long term solution to signs of aging. Patients over 30 may want to address lines and wrinkles. Younger patients may improve acne scars through the treatment.

Patients who are pregnant or nursing should not be treated. Check with our team if you have a history of allergies and might have an allergy to the injection. The treatment is also not recommended to patients who experience keloid scarring.

How Long Do Results Last?

Bellafill is a long-lasting solution. The treatment normally consists of two 15-minute injection sessions. The microspheres can continue to stimulate collagen production that repairs the skin for up to 12 months. The results can last up to 10 years. Patients will not require retouches for acne scars or signs of aging. The treatment is completed in our Nashville office without any downtime or healing time.
