How is Bellafill Different from other Fillers?
Most dermal fillers are made out of natural or synthetic materials which get broken down and absorbed by your body. As a result, you only experience temporary results that typically don’t last much longer than six months to a year. In order to maintain your results, you need to return for follow-up treatments once or twice a year.
Bellafill is made out of a collagen microsphere material that doesn’t get absorbed by your body. In addition, this material provides important support to your skin, helping to maintain a wrinkle-free appearance much longer. It is the first and only FDA approved wrinkle filler that provides long-term support to the skin for wrinkle correction.

How Bellafill Works
Bellafill is composed of PMMA (polymethylacrilate) that is injected deep into the skin where the microspheres are surrounded by your own collagen. This holds them firmly in place to provide long lasting wrinkle reduction. This form of synthetic filler is one of the most commonly used and has a long history of use in medical implant devices such as bone cement, dentures, pacemakers and others. The microspheres in Bellafill are 5 times smaller than the material in temporary fillers, making it smoother and highly effective.

How Does Bellafill Work?
Bellafill is comprised of collagen and polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA). This is a material that has been used in medical devices for over 65 years. After injected, over time the collagen is absorbed into the skin and the PMMA is left behind. This creates a supportive base in your skin, so more collagen develops. Thus, leading to smoother, youthful skin for a long time. This is especially important for those who do not wish to undergo repeat treatments for fillers every few months. With Bellafill the amount of repeat treatments are reduced so you can continue enjoying your life.
Is Bellafill a Safe Treatment?
Yes, Bellafill has been proven safe to use over many clinical trials. It is also the first FDA approved dermal filler that helps to smooth out wrinkles and scars while supporting the skin. Bellafill has also been FDA approved to for acne treatment. There are many benefits to the Befllafill treatment not only for the ease of the procedure but also the length of recovery time and results are hard to beat with other hyaluronic fillers.
