1. How long does it last?
Satisfaction and effectiveness for the correction of nasolabial folds have been established through 5 years. Effectiveness for the correction of acne scars has been proven through 12 months.

2. What is Bellafill
Bellafill® is a smooth collagen-based dermal filler with polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) microspheres. The collagen gel in Bellafill® provides immediate volume and lift to correct the wrinkle and/or acne scar. The PMMA microspheres remain in place and create a base that provides structural support for smoother-looking skin.

3. What are the microspheres in Bellafill® made of?
The microspheres are made of polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA), a biocompatible material that has been used in medical implants for 65 years.

4. How does it work?
The collagen in Bellafill® provides immediate volume and lift. Over time, the collagen is reabsorbed while the PMMA microspheres remain in place and create a base that provides structural support for smoother-looking skin.

5. Will it work for me?
In a clinical trial, Bellafill® was shown to work equally well with all skin types, and in men and women. If you have a history of severe allergies, have known bovine collagen allergies, are allergic to lidocaine, have bleeding disorders or are prone to thick scar formation and/or excessive scarring, tell us.

6. Is it safe?
Bellafill® has been proven safe through 5 years in the largest and longest prospective dermal filler study ever conducted.

7. When will I see results?
Bellafill® replaces lost volume in the skin below the wrinkle for correction that is immediate and lasting.

8. What's the downtime?
You can return to normal activities right away. You may experience temporary swelling, redness, pain, bruising, lumps/bumps, itching, and discoloration at the treatment site. These side effects are usually transient and typically resolve within 17 days.
