Bellafill Q & A
What is Bellafill®?
Bellafill® is a collagen-based dermal filler containing a synthetic, biocompatible substance called polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA), which forms tiny balls called microspheres. When your provider injects Bellafill beneath the skin, it produces immediate firmness and volume to lift deep wrinkles and acne scars and create smoother-looking skin.
While collagen from Bellafill eventually gets absorbed into your skin, PMMA microspheres stay in place for years to maintain facial volume and enhance your body’s ability to form its own collagen.
What is Bellafill used for?
Your provider may recommend Bellafill to meet your anti-aging needs if you’re seeking:
- Softer nasolabial facial folds
- Fewer acne scars
- Reduced deep facial lines
- Overall facial rejuvenation
- Firmer, younger-looking skin
You’ll schedule a consultation prior to receiving Bellafill injections to discuss your medical history and complete a skin evaluation, which includes a skin test to check for allergies.
What should I expect during Bellafill injections?
Your provider first cleans the area of skin requiring treatment and uses a numbing cream to make the injections feel more comfortable. Bellafill will be injected near deep lines, acne scars, and other areas of your skin that lack volume.
What happens after treatment?
You’ll notice increases in facial volume immediately after Bellafill injections, but you might also experience temporary side effects, such as:
- Lumps or bumps
These symptoms should disappear within 1-7 days after treatment. You can resume normal daily activities right away as there’s no downtime after Bellafill injections. You may need to take time off from strenuous physical activity the day of the treatment.
How long does Bellafill last?
Bellafill is FDA-approved to last up to five years. It may last five years when used to correct nasolabial folds in your face, or up to 12 months for acne scars.
