What is Bellafill® and what makes it unique?

Bellafill® is the only injectable collagen treatment with PMMA (polymethylmethacrylate) microspheres approved for the correction of moderate to severe, atrophic, distensible facial acne scarson the cheek in patients over the age of 21 years.

It is distinctive

In the world of injectables, Bellafill® is distinctive. Bellafill® works in two ways:

  • The collagen provides immediate volume below pitted acne scars to lift them to the level of the surrounding skin.4

  • The PMMA microspheres create a matrix that supports your body’s own collagen production.1*

Approved by Health Canada

Bellafill® is the first and only dermal filler approved by Health Canada for the correction of atrophic scars such as acne scars. It has been available in Canada since 2011, when it was approved for the treatment of facial wrinkles.

Proven safe

Bellafill® isn’t just an exceptional treatment option for acne scars. It has a proven safety profile.2

How scarring occurs

Atrophic (pitted) scarring starts with aggressive acne inflammation.

The inflammation can lead to irregular healing and loss of collagen, which is a key structural component of skin. This can result in a pitted or sunken scar and uneven skin surface.

How Bellafill® works

Bellafill® works in two ways:

  • The collagen provides immediate volume below pitted acne scars to lift them to the level of the surrounding skin.4

  • The PMMA microspheres create a matrix that supports your body’s own collagen production.1*

The injectable gel is comprised of 80% purified collagen and 20% PMMA (polymethylmethacrylate) microspheres. The microspheres are half the diameter of a human hair, so small that they are virtually invisible to the eye.

And keeps on working

Bellafill® is different. It restores rather than just fills for natural enduring results. In a pivotal clinical study on nasolabial fold correction, effectiveness was observed out to 12 months (unblinded). (Primary effectiveness endpoint was at 6 months.)4

In a post approval safety study on nasolabial correction, safety and effectiveness were established through 5 years.2

*Proposed mechanism of action

Bellafill® is placed below the depression using a fine needle.

The injectable gel immediately lifts pitted acne scars to the level of the surrounding skin for a smoother appearance.4
