To Fill Or Not To Fill? Bellafill

Struggling with acne problems, scarring and wrinkles can lead to feelings of frustration, poor self-image, and even depression. As you age, you begin to notice those fine lines and wrinkles surfacing. Since puberty, you may have battled acne at varying stages trying everything from lotion to medication but fail to see any method successfully rid you of those pesky pimples.

You may think you have tried every option known to man, but if you have not tried Bellafill Dermal Filler, then there may be hope yet!


The first question you may be asking is what Bellafill is? Bellafill is a new FDA- approved dermal filler that has been proven to be safe and effective – and there’s no surgery involved! The treatment lasts roughly five years and has given patients a new look on life. Bellafill is made of PMMA (polymethylmethacrylate) collagen fiber, which works quickly and gives instant results.

Bellafill Treatment

Bellafill treats many different issues. Some common problems include:

  • Acne Scars
  • Wrinkles
  • Nasolabial
  • Smile Lines

How Does Bellafill Work?

Bellafill Dermal Filler works by two different methods, both using the same technique of lifting and filling the face. Once the collagen is injected under the skin, it smoothes out pitted scars and wrinkles, leaving the affected skin even with the area around it. The collagen substance then triggers the production of the body’s collagen; this results in lasting effects that are both safe and effective.

Pros and Cons

The benefits of Bellafill can be tremendous. Quite often, patients using dermal fillers have to follow up with their physician twice a year. Bellafill is only needed every five years; this saves you time and money. It is a quick outpatient procedure that is performed in the physician’s office. Also, Bellafill does not require a recovery time, so you do not have to miss work.

While Bellafill can be the answer to some patients’ problems, it does not address every kind of acne. Bellafill is best for pitted acne scars resulting from acne inflammation. Once the swelling goes down, it can leave an indention in the skin. As many discover, it’s tough to rid yourself of these type of scars. While Bellafill can address this kind of scarring, it does not prevent acne or rid you of surface scars.

The Bellafill Benefit

If you don’t want to have to worry about seeing your doctor twice a year for dermal fillers, you should look into Bellafill. The next closest filler on the market only has a two-year FDA approval, which makes Bellafill’s 5-year duration even more appealing. Although this is a dermatology issue, plastic surgeons are experienced in Bellafill dermal fillers. If pitted acne scars or fine lines and wrinkles are affecting your life and taking over your confidence, make an appointment today with a plastic surgeon. You don’t have to look at it as plastic surgery; look at it more like a facial improvement. As they say, “Don’t rent your filler; own it.”
