What is Bellafill?
Bellafill is the only injectable collagen treatment with PMMA (polymethylmethacrylate) microspheres approved for the correction of moderate to severe, atrophic, distensible facial acne scars on the cheek in patients over the age 21 years.
Bellafill is the only distinctive FDA approved dermal filler on the market for the correction of moderate to severe atrophic, distensible facial acne scars on the cheek in patients over the age of 21 years. It was approved for the correction of facial wrinkles (nasolabial folds) in 2006. Bellafill adds volume below the scar to lift it to the level of surrounding skin for the smoother skin you’ve dreamed of.

Can Bellafill treat your acne scars?

*Results may vary for each individual
How scarring occurs
Atrophic (pitted) scarring starts with aggressive acne inflammation. The inflammation can lead to irregular healing and loss of collagen, which is a key structural component of skin. This can result in a pitted or sunken and uneven skin surface.
How Bellafill works
Bellafill works in two ways:
- The collagen provides immediate volume below pitted acne scars to lift them to the level of surrounding skin.
- The PMMA microspheres create a matrix that supports your body’s own collagen production.

And keeps on working…
Bellafill is different. It restores rather than just fills for natural enduring results. In clinical studies effectiveness was observed out to 12 months. (Primary effectiveness endpoint was at 6 months)
How is Bellafill injected?
Bellafill is injected underneath the wrinkle, just above the skins fat layer. Bellafill provides the soft, supportive foundation that your skin needs for long-lasting wrinkle correction.
Bellafill® is placed below the depression using a fine needle.
The injectable gel immediately adds volume to the skin to lift and smooth out wrinkles.
