Bellafill

Bellafill, formerly known as Artefill, is an FDA-approved collagen gel providing immediate volume and lift using PMMA (polymethyl methacrylate) microspheres.

Bellafill works in two ways:  First, the collagen provides immediate volume below atrophic acne scars to lift them to the level of the surrounding skin.  Second, the PMMA microspheres create a matrix that supports collagen production.  With other fillers such as Restylane or Juvederm, the ingredients are gradually re-absorbed by the body.  In contrast, the miscrospheres in Bellafill are not and this is why Bellafill lasts longer.

Commonly used for smoothing acne scars and facial wrinkles, Bellafill provides longevity, lasting up to five years.  This treatment does require a skin test to identify patients who may be allergic to the bovine collagen in Bellafill.  Typically one to two treatment sessions are necessary to achieve the desired outcome.  Not all patients are candidates for Bellafill.  We encourage you to schedule a consultation with one of our providers to discuss whether Bellafill is a good option for you.
