Bellafill® provides beautiful volume to counter the appearance of deep lines and scars. With its combination of Collagen and PMMA, this filler gets metabolized quickly into the body, but still promotes the development of natural collagen and continues to look great over time. This dermal filler is often used to address smile lines and acne scarring.
Bellafill is made of two key ingredients: collagen, and polymethylmethacrylate microspheres (or PMMA). The collagen provides immediate volume to the area and allows for the microspheres to be placed effectively. Over time, the collagen is absorbed into the body, but the PMMA stays in place to provide support to the skin. As the PMMA stays in place, it also encourages the production of your body’s natural collagen by providing a foundation to build on, for healthier-looking over a longer period of time. PMMA has been used for medical purposes for over 50 years, and has been shown to be very safe.
Bellafill is often considered the longest-lasting dermal filler on the market, with proven results up to 5 years after treatment. Post-treatment, patients may experience minor side effects such as subtle redness or itching – but is only temporary.
