Bellafill® is a unique injectable collagen filler with microspheres that can instantly smooth facial wrinkles (nasolabial folds) for beautiful, natural-looking correction that lasts. It has been approved by the FDA for injection in the nasolabial folds and acne scars. Bellafill can also be used to enhance areas where volume has been lost including the cheeks, temples and other parts of the face.
With aging, we lose volume in our face. The facial contours of youth with more volume in the upper face and mid face can change due to loss of bone, fat and collagen. The facial shape associated with use is an inverted (upside down) triangle. With loss of support, the volume can be distributed more in the lower face with a flattened cheek area, lax jawline. The face shape changes with heaviness in the lower face.
Because Bellafill stimulates collagen, this can result in a lifted appearance to the face. Restoring volume in the midface (cheeks) gives the face a more youthful look. Bellafill results can last up to five years. However, you must remember that we lose a minimum of 1 tsp of collagen a year and maintenance must occur.

What is Bellafill® and what makes it unique?
It is distinctive
In the world of injectables, Bellafill® is distinct. In addition to immediately adding volume to the skin to lift wrinkles known as smile lines, Bellafill® re-creates the firm structure of younger-looking skin by supporting production of your body’s own collagen.
Approved by the FDA
Bellafill® has been approved for the correction of facial wrinkles known as nasolabial folds or smile lines since 2006. Bellafill® requires a skin test to identify patients who may be sensitive to the lidocaine or bovine collagen in Bellafill®, which affected less than 1% in the Bellafill® clinical trial5.
Bellafill® isn’t just an exceptional cosmetic treatment option. Bellafill’s safety profile is comparable to the temporary fillers you are already familiar with and perhaps already using2.
Bellafill® is a polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) collagen filler
- See visible correction with the very first treatment.
- The collagen in Bellafill® provides immediate volume and lift while the PMMA microspheres remain in place and create a matrix that supports collagen production in your skin for lasting improvement1.
Filler enhancement that makes economic sense
Most patients can expect to maintain the correction they see early after treatment. However, every patient’s skin is unique and therefore we recommend starting slowly with a conservative amount and continuing treatment as needed to get the best correction, correction that lasts.
