How Bellafill Works
Bellafill is a polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) filler with bovine collagen. The PMMA provides long-term structure under your skin and stimulates your own natural collagen over several years. As the bovine collagen is absorbed, your body responds to the PMMA and generates new collagen. This combination is what gives Bellafill it’s long-lasting effects.
You can expect immediate results with Bellafill, but most patients require 2-3 treatments over a few months for optimal results. You will experience continued improvements over the months following treatment as your body creates new collagen in the treated area.
Minimal bruising and swelling is normal and should subside over a few days. Most patients can resume normal activities immediately, but taking a day off from exercise and strenuous activities is recommended.
