Bellafill® Acne Patient Testimonial
Bellafill® for Nasolabial Folds
Bellafill® is an injectable filler that’s FDA approved to treat nasolabial folds. These folds, sometimes called “smile lines,” extend from the nose to the corners of the mouth. Bellafill® provides instant smoothness, with long-lasting results: In the longest and largest study ever conducted on dermal fillers, Bellafill® was proven to be effective through five years. That means that you can enjoy your results for much longer than you would with hyaluronic acid-based fillers.

Bellafill® has 2 main components
- Smooth collagen gel (80%) forms the base of Bellafill, creating smooth, supple volume beneath the surface of the nasolabial folds.
- Polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) microspheres (20%) are suspended within the collagen gel. These form a sturdy scaffold where your own natural collagen grows.
Thanks to its 2 innovative components, Bellafill® creates instant results that you can enjoy as soon as you leave the office. As the original collagen gel fades away, your body naturally replaces it with your own collagen around the microspheres, for unparalleled long-term
Who Should Consider Bellafill®?
The best Bellafill® candidates are women or men, 21 and older, who:
- are bothered by the look of their nasolabial folds and wish to avoid the regular touch-up treatments associated with other fillers or
- have distensible or atrophic acne scars on the cheeks. Distensible scars smooth out when you tug on them; atrophic scars are pitted or depressed in the skin.
Is Bellafill® safe?
Yes. Bellafill® is FDA approved and has been proven safe and effective in rigorous clinical studies. Bellafill® performed very well in the largest and longest safety study ever conducted on dermal fillers.
As with many injectable fillers, you may experience bruising, itching, pain, swelling, redness, discoloration, lumpiness, bumps, acne, or increased sensitivity at the treatment site. These side effects usually resolve themselves quickly.
What results can I expect with Bellafill®? How long does it take to see them?
Bellafill® creates an immediate and lasting improvement in your skin by smoothing out the lines around the nasolabial folds and correcting moderate to severe atrophic, distensible facial acne scars on the cheeks. There’s no required downtime after your treatment with Bellafill®. You can return to your normal routine immediately.
How frequently should you have Bellafill® treatments?
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.
