What is Bellafill?
Bellafill uses an innovative blend of two distinct components to create both immediate and long lasting results. Tiny polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) microspheres are suspended in a smooth collagen gel base. Bellafill is comprised of 80% bovine collagen and 20% PMMA microspheres. PMMA works to immediately improve the wrinkles and fine lines of treated areas, Bellafill® has been FDA-approved since 2006.
Over several months, your body naturally metabolizes (i.e. breaks down) the collagen. However, the PMMA microspheres are not absorbed by the body. They remain in the skin to strengthen the structure and support collagen production for long-term results. They are a scaffolding system, supporting the development of your own collagen and laying the foundation for long-term smoothness. With Bellafill, you don’t have to decide between looking great now and looking great later.
Bellafill may require several treatment sessions and / or treatment with other cosmetic procedures to achieve optimum improvement.
Because Bellafill is comprised of bovine collagen, skin allergy testing with bovine collagen is necessary prior treatment.

What causes facial wrinkles?
Wrinkles caused by volume loss and gravity: Over time, we lose volume in our faces, increasing the chances for wrinkles and folds to appear. The fat pads in our cheeks may slide downward toward the mouth, which can cause the skin to wrinkle or fold, creating the “smile lines” from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds). Bellafill® effectively addresses volume loss to reverse the signs of aging.
Wrinkles caused by repetitive movement: Repeated movement of the facial skin may create wrinkles. These types of wrinkles are “dynamic”. Age is a factor, but repeated facial movements, such as frowning or squinting, can also create lines. This means wrinkles and lines may develop even in younger adults. These wrinkles are not candidates for Bellafill® treatment.
