Answering Your FAQs About Bellafill

bellafill

You went through your teenage years with unsightly acne and told yourself, “This will disappear when I’m an adult.” Turns out you were only half correct. Acne can leave behind deep tissue scarring that will haunt your complexion. Does this sound like you? If so, Bellafill may be the answer.

 What is Bellafill?

 Bellafill is a dermatological injectable filler that is composed of a smooth collagen gel carrier and polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) microspheres.

What is Bellafill used for?

Bellafill can be used on all parts of your face and body except for the lips. It can be used to repair deep acne scars, wrinkles and stretch marks. In recent studies, Bellafill has also been used to sculpt nipples for women who have recently undergone breast reconstruction surgery after a mastectomy.

How does it work?

The combination of the PMMA particles and the collagen raise the skin and partner with your own skin cells to rebuild its own collagen. After a single treatment, you will begin to notice the results of Bellafill. After approximately four months, the collagen and blood vessels have worked to enable collagen production with the assistance of the PMMA.

How long does it last?

Bellafill is the only FDA approved injectable filler with the longest recorded results. Bellafill can last for up to 5 years on even the deepest facial scarring. Compare that to other fillers that may only last 6 months to 1 year.

Is it right for me?

The results of Bellafill are, no doubt, amazing. However, the treatment may not be right for you. Some factors to consider are age, allergies and depth of scarring or wrinkles.
