Bellafill® is an exceptional cosmetic treatment.
Popular and Growing. In 2013, there were more than 2.2 million injectable filler procedures, which makes fillers the second most popular nonsurgical cosmetic procedure, and the fastest growing. Do you love the more youthful look that dermal fillers provide, but wish the results weren’t so temporary? Bellafill® lasts through 5 years. Bellafill® is a unique, injectable collagen filler with microspheres that can instantly smooth facial wrinkles (nasolabial folds) for beautiful, natural-looking correction that lasts years
instead of months.
Bellafill® has a proven safety profile:
- Bellafill was proven safe in the longest and largest prospective dermal filler study ever completed.
- Biocompatible PMMA. The microspheres in Bellafill® are made of PMMA (polymethylmethacrylate), a biocompatible material that has been used in medical implants for 65 years.
- Bellafill® requires a skin test in the U.S. to identify patients who may be allergic to the collagen or lidocaine in Bellafill®.
Immediate correction. Natural look. Lasting improvement.
Bellafill® offers a new level of filler rejuvenation. The collagen gel immediately adds volume to smooth away facial wrinkles known as smile lines, and the polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) microspheres help your skin re-create its own firmer structure for beautiful, younger-looking skin and lasting results.
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, which means they may develop even in younger adults. These wrinkles are not candidates for Bellafill® treatment.
What is Bellafill® and how is it unique?
Bellafill® is a smooth, collagen-based filler with PMMA microspheres. The PMMA re-creates the firm structure of younger-looking skin by supporting production of your body’s own collagen.
Bellafill® is a polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) collagen gel filler:
- The collagen gel in Bellafill® provides immediate volume and lift.
- Over time, the collagen gel is absorbed by the body. The PMMA microspheres remain in place and create a matrix that supports production of the body’s own collagen for lasting correction.
- The microspheres in Bellafill® are half the diameter of a human hair, so small that they are virtually invisible to the eye. The microspheres are made of polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA), one of the most widely used materials in medicine for 65 years.
How Bellafill® works
Bellafill® replaces lost volume in the skin below the wrinkle for results that are immediate and lasting. The injectable gel is comprised of 80% purified collagen gel and 20% PMMA (polymethylmethacrylate) microspheres.
Bellafill® keeps on working
Bellafill® is different. It restores rather than just fills for natural, enduring results. In a clinical study, satisfaction and effectiveness were established through 5 years.
