Bellafill® is a smooth, collagen-based dermal filler with polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) microspheres. The collagen gel in Bellafill® provides immediate volume and lift to correct wrinkles and acne scars. Once injected, these microspheres stay in place and create a base that provides structural support for smoother-looking skin.

How Does Bellafill Work?
Bellafill® uses an innovative blend of 2 distinct components to create results that are both immediate and long lasting. Suspended within its smooth collagen gel base are tiny polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) microspheres. Once it's injected, the collagen goes to work immediately*, adding natural-looking volume to soften smile lines or acne scars. Over time, your* body naturally metabolizes the collagen — but that doesn't mean results disappear. The PMMA microspheres work as a scaffolding system, supporting the development of your own collagen and laying the foundation for long-term smoothness.
How long does it last?
The effectiveness and patient satisfaction rates of Bellafill® have been established through 5 years when used to correct nasolabial folds, and 12 months when used to correct acne scars.
What’s the downtime?
You can return to your normal activities right away. However, you may experience some temporary swelling, redness, pain, bruising, lumps or bumps, itching, and discoloration at the treatment site. Keep in mind that these symptoms are usually temporary, resolving within 1 to 7 days.
How long has Bellafill® been available in the U.S.?
Bellafill® was approved by the FDA to treat nasolabial folds in October 2006, under the trade name ArteFill®. In December 2014, Bellafill® was approved by the FDA for the correction of certain types of moderate to severe acne scars in patients over 21.
