What is Bellafill®?
Bellafill® is a combination of microspheres suspended in bovine collagen along with lidocaine anesthetic for numbing during injection. The synthetic microspheres consist of polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA), a substance safely used for decades in medical implants. These microspheres remain unabsorbed, supporting the skin, while the bovine collagen around them is resorbed by the body. The microspheres, furthermore, stimulate your own native collagen production for a lasting effect. A follow-up study of patients treated with Bellafill® showed that at 5 years out there was continued improvement and wrinkle correction. Persons treated with Bellafill® can undergo resurfacing laser treatment for further rejuvenating effect.
