Bellafill NYC

What Is Bellafill?

Bellafill is an innovative anti-aging FDA-approved dermal filler that smoothes nasolabial folds, also known as smile lines and adds volume to skin for a youthful look. It contains polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) microspheres, which aren’t absorbed by the body, and collagen gel that creates volume where needed. Its unique formulation offers long-lasting results — five years or more! Plus, it is safe and effective with superior longevity in comparison to other fillers, making it easier than ever to maintain a youthful appearance for years to come.

What Is Bellafill Used For?

Bellafill is a safe and effective option for those looking to reduce nasolabial folds or acne scars with natural-looking results.

Treatment Overview

Before the Bellafill injections are used in the face, each patient will need to undergo a quick skin test to ensure there will be no negative reactions. It is then carefully injected under the skin in the targeted area. Once the gel is in place, it will immediately add volume under the skin giving it a smoother, more even texture. Over time the body absorbs the collagen, but the PMMA microspheres remain in place to support the skin over a longer period of time.


Results are immediate and patients can return to normal activity right away. The skin may appear slightly reddened afterward, but this procedure has no downtime.


Bellafill can improve the appearance of deep lines around the mouth and pitted acne scars to achieve a smooth skin texture. After one treatment, patients will see an improvement in smile lines and acne scars, but fully actualized results may require multiple treatments. Collagen is absorbed by the skin over time and PMMA Microspheres remain in place to give semi-permanent lasting results over the span of 5 years for nasolabial folds, and up to 12 months for acne scars.

Bellafill Benefits

Bellafill is the first and only FDA-approved non-invasive treatment for both acne scars and smile lines, and can be used safely on all skin types. Upon injection, the dermal filler immediately replaces lost volume under the skin to provide a gentle lift and diminish the appearance of acne scars and smile lines.

Other benefits include:

  • Results are semi-permanent and can last up to 5 years
  • Non-invasive treatment and no downtime
  • Low-risk treatment with minimal chance of side-effects
  • Ambulatory procedure – patients can walk right out with noticeable improvements
