Bellafill contains tiny “microspheres” of polymethyl methocrylate which are suspended in a collagen gel base. This combination of materials is injected beneath the wrinkles or scars. Once in the layers of your skin, those microspheres, which are not absorbed by your body, stimulate collagen production and then act as a base or scaffold on which your own collagen then develops. This base that is formed by the Bellafill ingredients is the platform that then enables your body to keep producing collagen and filling out your wrinkles by adding volume to your skin long term.
When treating acne scars, Bellafill adds volume to them by being injected under the scarred areas and by bringing them up to the level of the surrounding skin, improving the texture and smoothing the acne scars for up to one year.
