Collagen-based Dermal Filler
Bellafill® is a smooth collagen-based dermal filler with polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) microspheres. The collagen gel in Bellafill® provides immediate volume and lift to correct the wrinkle/nasolabial fold and/or acne scar. The PMMA microspheres remain in place and create a base that provides structural support for smoother-looking skin.
￼￼￼￼Who is it good for?
Patients must be 21 years of age or older, and receive the required negative skin test prior to treatment. In clinical studies, Bellafill® was shown to work in all skin types, and in men and women.
Will it work for me?
In a clinical trial, Bellafill® was shown to work equally well with all skin types, and in men and women. If you have had a positive reaction to the Bellafill Skin Test, have a history of severe allergies, have known bovine collagen allergies, are allergic to lidocaine, have bleeding disorders or are prone to thick scar formation and/or excessive scarring, you should not receive Bellafill.
What is the downtime?
You can return to normal activities right away. You may experience temporary swelling, redness, pain, bruising, lumps/bumps, itching, and discoloration at the treatment site. These side effects are usually transient and typically resolve within 1–7 days.
How long does it last?
Satisfaction and effectiveness for the correction of nasolabial folds have been established through 5 years. Effectiveness for the correction of acne scars has been proven through 12 months.
