What is Bellafil?
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 long does it last?
The effectiveness and patient satisfaction rates of Bellafill® have been established through 5 years when used to correct facial volume loss, loose skin, and wrinkles in the cheeks, temples, jaw line, and nasolabial folds or smile lines, and 12 months when used to correct acne scars.
What are the microspheres made of?
The microspheres are made of polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA), a biocompatible material that has been safely used in medical implants and other devices for more than 65 years.
How does it work?
The collagen in Bellafill® provides immediate volume and lift for results that you can enjoy as soon as you leave the office. Over time, the collagen is reabsorbed while the PMMA microspheres are left behind. They create a supportive base that allows more of your own collagen to develop, resulting in smoother-looking skin in the long term.
When will I see results?
You will see the results of your procedure immediately due to the collagen in Bellafill. This collagen will last about 2 to 3 months while you gradually build your own collagen. As the collagen in the Bellafill is reabsorbed by your body you replace it with your own collagen. This creates instant results that last for years.
What is 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.
Am I a good Candidate?
Bellafil is a good option for almost any age group. It can be used in temples, cheeks, smile lines, and jaw line to correct overall volume loss that is associated with aging. It is perfect for a procedure called the Liquid Facelift that causes all over facial rejuvenation. Anyone wanting full facial rejuvenation or treatment for a specific area, is a great candidate for Bellafill. Also, Bellafill is indicated for treatment of acne scars that are rolling or indented.
