Although your acne may be long gone, its scars can hang around. Bellafill® fades these scars by adding volume to them, bringing them to the level of the surrounding skin and keeping them there through 1 year. Bellafill® is the first and only injectable filler that’s FDA approved to treat acne scars.
Inflammation plays a leading role in the formation of scars. The inflammation caused by acne can impact the healing process and diminish the amount of helpful collagen that occurs naturally in skin. The result is the uneven, pitted (atrophic) appearance of acne scars. While scars may fade over time, they often don’t go away completely without help.
Bellafill® reduces the look of acne scars in 2 ways. Its remarkably small polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) microspheres are suspended in a smooth collagen gel. The diameter of each microsphere is less than that of a human hair, so they’re not visible to the naked eye.
Once injected by your practitioner, Bellafill® provides an immediate improvement that you can enjoy as soon as you leave the office. The PMMA microspheres form a supportive scaffold to allow your own collagen to build upon. As the gel breaks down over time, your collagen forms a foundation that adds volume to the acne scars providing a sustained improvement that can last. Want smooth, stress-free skin for a year? Bellafill® can make it happen.

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.
In the world of injectables, Bellafill is distinctive.
Bellafill works in two ways:
The Bellafill treatment is a safe, in-office procedure that takes a few minutes to administer.
See visible correction with the very first treatment.
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.
