Rediscover Smoother Skin
Bellafill® is an injectable filler that’s FDA approved to treat nasolabial folds (or smile lines) and certain types of acne scars. While other dermal fillers simply fill in hollow areas, Bellafill® fills and lifts to renew your face, providing instant smoothness with long-lasting results.
Bellafill® has two main components:
- Smooth collagen gel (80%) forms the base of Bellafill®, creating smooth, supple volume to depressed scars or beneath the surface of the nasolabial folds.
- Polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) microspheres (20%) are suspended within the collagen gel. These form a sturdy scaffold where your own natural collagen grows.
Thanks to these two innovative components, Bellafill® creates instant results that you can enjoy as soon as you leave the office. As the original collagen gel fades away, your body naturally replaces it with your own collagen around the microspheres, for unparalleled long-term smoothness.

Frequently Asked Questions
How does it work?
Bellafill® is a smooth, collagen gel-based dermal filler that contains tiny PMMA microspheres.The collagen gel in Bellafill® provides immediate volume and lift to fill in scars and correct lines and wrinkles, smoothing them away for instant results. Even as the collagen is absorbed by your body, the PMMA microspheres remain in place, creating a “scaffold” that triggers and supports your own natural collagen production. Because your own collagen replaces the collagen gel from the initial injections, results last.
How long does it last? How frequently do I need treatments?
This dermal filler lasts longer than its many competitors. Unlike fillers that only last for a few months to a year; Bellafill® lasts up to 5 years* for nasolabial folds. In a clinical study on acne scarring, Bellafill® remained safe and effective for patients through twelve months*.
You also do not need maintenance shots to keep up the appearance. Because of the purified collagen and microspheres that it has, it has the ability of restoration. Meaning that it will keep your face looking soft, taut, and smooth.
What kind of results* can I expect?
There’s no required downtime after your treatment with Bellafill®. You can return to your normal routine immediately. As with many injectable fillers, you may experience bruising, itching, pain, swelling, redness, discoloration, lumpiness, bumps, acne, or increased sensitivity at the treatment site. These side effects usually resolve themselves quickly.
Who should use Bellafill®?
Bellafill® is approved for use on men and women who are 21 and older. It is safe on all skin types, textures and colors, and patients could consider an optional allergy test before treatment. For acne scarring, it works on distensible and atrophic acne scars on the cheeks. Distensible scars smooth out when you tug on them; atrophic scars are pitted or depressed in the skin.
Is Bellafill® safe?
Yes. Bellafill® is FDA approved and has been proven safe and effective in rigorous clinical studies. Bellafill® performed very well in the largest and longest safety study ever conducted on dermal fillers. At the study’s completion, 83% of patients were still satisfied with their results 5 years after treatment.
Both the collagen gel and PMMA in Bellafill® have established safety records. PMMA has long been used in other areas of medicine, such as orthopedic surgery, dentistry, and ophthalmology.
