Bellafill Frequently Asked Questions
Frequently Asked Questions
What is Bellafill and how does it work?
Bellafill is a smooth, collagen gel-based dermal filler that contains tiny PMMA microspheres. The collagen gel in Bellafill provides immediate volume and lift to correct lines and wrinkles, smoothing them away for instant results. Even as the collagen is absorbed by your body, the PMMA microspheres remain in place and create a “scaffold” that supports your own natural collagen production.
Is Bellafill Safe?
Yes, Bellafill is FDA-approved and has been proven safe and effective in rigorously conducted clinical studies. Bellafill performed very well in the largest and longest safety study ever conducted on dermal fillers. At the study’s completion, 83% of patients were still satisfied with their results 5 years after treatment.
Who are the best candidates for Bellafill?
Candidates for Bellafill must be 21 years of age or older. Bellafill works on all skin types and in both men and women. Bellafill is a great option for patients who want to avoid the time and expense associated with other, more temporary fillers. A quick skin test is required to ensure you’re not allergic to any of the ingredients in Bellafill.
What results can I expect with Bellafill? How long does it take to see them?
Bellafill creates a lasting improvement in your skin. The collagen gel in Bellafill provides immediate volume and lift to correct lines and wrinkles, smoothing them away for instant results. So you’ll see immediate results. And over time, your body uses the PMMA microspheres as a “scaffold” onto which your own collagen can develop. In the long safety study, the results were still visible.
There’s no required downtime after your treatment with Bellafill. You can get back to your normal routine immediately.

What treatment options currently exist for acne scars?
Topical treatments, chemical peels, dermabrasion, microneedling, and laser resurfacing are among the current available treatment options for acne scars. However, some of these treatments may require significant downtime. In some cases, results can take time to emerge — and other treatments often lack rigorous, controlled data to support their safety or efficacy.
Bellafill is the only filler that’s approved by the FDA to treat acne scars, providing an entirely new treatment choice for patients.
Is Bellafill safe?
Yes. Bellafill is the only FDA-approved dermal filler for the correction of moderate to severe atrophic, distensible facial acne scars on the cheeks in patients 21 and over. Bellafill has been proven to provide both immediate and lasting results in rigorous clinical studies, with demonstrated effectiveness, safety, and high rates of patient satisfaction. As with many injectable fillers, you may experience bruising, itchiness, pain, swelling, redness, discoloration, lumpiness, bumps, acne, or increased sensitivity at the treatment site. These side effects usually go away by themselves within a few days.
How frequently should you have Bellafill® treatments? What is the upkeep?
Bellafill is a lasting solution to get rid of acne scars. In a clinical study on acne scarring, Bellafill remained safe and effective for patients through twelve months. In a separate clinical study on smoothing out nasolabial folds (smile lines), its safety and effectiveness was established through five years. Your individual treatment plan will take these findings into account and develop a schedule that works best for you.
Why Bellafill for Acne Scars?
Sixty-two percent (62%) of patients concerned about noticeable acne scars have consulted a doctor or other healthcare professional at some time. Until recently, the treatment options for reducing scarring such as microneedling, laser and light therapies, were limited. Now Bellafill offers a solution for reducing the look of scars when resurfacing procedures are not favored, or simply do not provide the outcomes you desire. Results are both immediate and lasting, improving your sense of personal confidence.
