What is Bellafill?

Bellafill® is an injectable polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) collagen filler. 
This collagen immediately adds volume to the skin to lift wrinkles and firm skin, resulting in more youthful and smoother skin. The PMMA microspheres create a matrix that supports the body’s own collagen production. 

Bellafill has been FDA approved for the correction of facial wrinkles, or “smile lines” since 2006. Bellafill is more than a cosmetic treatment option. In the largest dermal filler study ever conducted, Bellafill was proven safe through 5 years of testing for the correction of nasolabial folds.  

This treatment does require a skin test to identify patients who may be allergic to the lidocaine or collagen in Bellafill. At the San Francisco Plastic Surgery and Laser Center, we provide consultation and testing for this treatment at our Union Square office.

Bellafill Treatment for Acne Scars

Why Consider Bellafill Treatment?

Severe facial folds, such as those that frequently form from the nose down to the corners of the mouth, disrupt the smooth, youthfulness of the face.  Scars from moderate to severe acne can so detract from an otherwise pleasant appearance that they can ruin a life.

Bellafill dermal filler adds volume beneath the facial folds or acne scars to lift the area to the level of the surrounding skin creating and smooth and even appearance. In addition, Bellafill re-establishes the firm structure of younger-looking skin by supporting the production of the body’s own collagen.

The problem with most dermal fillers is that they don’t last and have to be redone.  However, with Bellafill, even severe facial folds and acne scarring can be reversed with just one treatment.

Bellafill is a modern day miracle for men and women looking for a permanent solution to these facial cosmetic problems, and Dr. Rajagopal and her team have the experience and know-how to provide you with the best Bellafill treatment plan.

Getting Your Bellafill Treatment

The first step in a Bellafill treatment is the allergy skin test.  Once that’s completed and shows no sign of reaction, the procedure is begun.

Bellafill is injected into the skin in target areas with an ultrafine needle. The treatment plumps the skin to smooth away wrinkles and folds and fill in acne scars.

After the Treatment

Bellafill is a simple, in-office treatment with little to no downtime.  After treatment, you can immediately return to your normal daily activities.

As with any injectable dermal filler, temporary mild swelling and redness may occur at the treatment site. Bruising is normally mild and lasts 3 to 7 days.  Other possible side effects are soreness, tenderness, and itching.
