What is Bellafill®?
Bellafill® is an injectable dermal filler comprised of collagen gel that instantly restores lost volume in the treated area and polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) microspheres that act as a support structure of the skin and stimulate the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin.
Benefits of Bellafill®

- Quick treatment sessions
- Little to no downtime
- Lasting results
How can Bellafill® be used to treat acne scars?
Bellafill® is the only injectable dermal filler that has been FDA-approved for treatment and correction of acne scars. The PMMA microspheres and collagen gel in Bellafill® fill in instantly fill in acne scars and act as a support system for the skin. The microspheres also encourage the body’s natural production of proteins like collagen and elastin and will not be absorbed by the body, allowing this dermal filler to provide a lasting improvement in the appearance of acne scarring.
How many treatments will I need?
Most patients only require one 20 to 30-minute injection session in order to achieve optimal results. Some patients may need to return 8 to 12 weeks after their first treatment session for an additional touch-up treatment. During your consultation, Dr. Balogun will review your specific condition and determine the appropriate treatment plan to best suit your needs.
Are there any side effects?
You may experience some mild swelling, redness, bruising, tenderness, itching, or discomfort at the injection site immediately following an injection session. These side effects are temporary and typically resolve on their own within one to seven days of an injection session.
Am I a candidate?
Men and women over the age of 21 who are interested in improving the appearance of rolling acne scars, the scars that disappear if the skin is temporarily stretched out, are candidates for Bellafill® for acne scarring treatments. Dr. Balogun will review your specific case and determine if you are a candidate for this treatment during your first consultation.
