What is Bellafill?

Safe, effective, FDA-approved Bellafill is a remarkable solution for reducing acne scars. Bellafill is different from many other fillers because it's made with unique ingredients. It's tiny microspheres, called PMMA (polymethylmethacrylate), are suspended in a smooth collagen gel formulation. Once injected, Bellafill immediately reduces the appearance of acne scars. Over time, your body uses the PMMA microspheres as a "scaffold" onto which your own collagen can develop. This collagen forms a foundation that adds volume to the acne scars, providing a natural-looking result that feels soft and smooth.


Bellafill is also used for NasioLabial Fold treatment



How Bellafill works

The collagen gel in Bellafill provides immediate volume below acne scars to lift them to the level of the surrounding skin.

Bellafill requires a skin test in the US to identify patients who may be allergic to the collagen gel or lidocaine in Bellafill.

Immediate Correction. Lasting Results.

Bellafill works best on distensible (which means they disappear when stretched), depressed scars with soft edges. Your licensed provider can help you determine if Bellafill can offer you the results you want.
