Bellafill — Youthful Looks That Last
Bellafill, formerly known as ArteFill, is a dermal filler that offers immediate correction and lasting improvement with a natural look. Bellafill® adds immediate volume to smooth away the facial wrinkles called smile lines. To give you a beautiful, younger-looking appearance that lasts, Bellafill re-creates the firm structure of younger-looking skin by supporting your own body's production of collagen.
Distinctive in the world of injectables, Bellafill is a Dermal Filler comprised of 60% purified collagen and 20% PMMA microspheres. These microspheres are made of polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA), one of the most widely used materials in medicine for 65 years. The tiny microspheres in Bellafill are half the diameter of a human hair, so small that they are virtually invisible to the human eye.
Immediate and Lasting Correction with Bellafill
Bellafill replaces lost volume in the skin below the wrinkle for correction that is both immediate and lasting. The collagen gel in Bellafill provides immediate volume and lift, with visible correction from the very first treatment. The collagen is absorbed by the body over time, but the PMMA microspheres remain in place and create a matrix that supports production of the body's own collagen for lasting correction, ultimately strengthening the layers of the skin. That's why enhancement with Bellafill makes economic sense.
The matrix created by Bellafill provides the support your skin needs for wrinkle correction and younger-looking skin with results that last. In clinical trials, Bellafill showed significant improvement in smile lines at 3 months and 6 months after treatment and continued to show improvement at 12 months. Bellafill was shown in a clinical trial to work equally well with all skin types and in both men and women.
After a treatment with Bellafill, you can return to normal activities right away. As with any injectable dermal filler, mild swelling and redness can occur at the treatment site that generally subsides after 24 hours.
Most patients can expect to maintain the correction they see early after treatment. However, everyone's skin is unique — we recommend starting slowly with a conservative amount of Bellafill and continuing the process of progressive enhancement as needed to get the best, lasting correction.
