In the world of injectables, Bellafill is distinctive.
Bellafill works in two ways:
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. It was approved for the correction of nasolabial folds in 2006.
Bellafill requires a skin test to identify patients who may be allergic to the lidocaine or bovine collagen in Bellafill.
The Bellafill treatment is a safe, in-office procedure that takes a few minutes to administer.

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.
What is Bellafill?
Bellafill is a dermal filler made with collagen gel and PMMA microspheres. The PMMA re-creates the firm structure of younger-looking skin by supporting production of your body’s own collagen.
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 it work?
The collagen in Bellafill provides immediate volume and lift while the PMMA microspheres create a matrix that supports production of the body’s own collagen over time. The microspheres are not absorbed by the body and provide a support matrix for lasting correction.
Will it work for me?
In a clinical trial, Bellafill was shown to work equally well with all skin types, and in men and women.4 If you have a bleeding disorder, a history of severe allergies, have known bovine collagen allergies, are allergic to lidocaine, or are prone to thick scar formation and/or excessive scarring, tell your licensed provider.
When will I see results?
Bellafill replaces lost volume in the skin below the acne scar for results that are immediate and lasting.
What’s the downtime?
You can return to normal activities right away. As with any injectable dermal filler, you may experience temporary swelling, redness, pain, bruising, lumps/bumps, itching, and discoloration at the treatment site. These side effects are usually transient and typically resolve within 1–7 days.
How long does it last?
The PMMA microspheres provide a microscopic ‘matrix’ to support your body’s own natural collagen production and re-create the firm structure of younger-looking skin for lasting correction.
