Bellafill acne scars injection treatment in NJ
Bellafill® is a polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) filler that was FDA approved in 2006 for long term correction of nasolabial folds. Bellafill also contains a local anesthetic. This takes the edge off by providing pain relief at the same time as the initial injection. Results from injections of Bellafill treatment appear almost immediately.
Dr. Monica Tadros specializes in Bellafill injection treatments for facial wrinkles in NJ. The whole procedure of Bellafill takes approximately 15 minutes to perform and is typically done in the Dr. Tadros’ office.

Bellafill for Acne Scars
Bellafill is currently the only dermal filler on the market that is FDA approved for treatment of acne scars! It is a strong entry into the field of acne scar treatments, and can be used in combination with other acne scar treatments, such as laser resurfacing or chemical peels, for a more comprehensive result.
Bellafill can be used on acne scars that are atrophic and distensible. This means that it works best on shallow scars that can disappear if manually stretched. For other types of acne scars, such as icepick or boxcar scars, other types of acne scar treatments may work better. It’s best to talk to a board-certified dermatologist with experience treating acne scars to get a custom plan for your particular case. Acne scars can be difficult to treat, but with the right treatment, they can be significantly reduced.
How It Works
Dr. Monica Tadros injects Bellafill under the scars to stimulate your own collagen to fill the scar. The unique injectable gel, comprised of tiny microspheres integrates and promotes new tissue. These spheres are smaller than a human hair, barely visible to the eye, but they are powerful collagen builders. You see improvement right away, but the skin just keeps getting smoother as your own body fills the scars.
Bellafill works in two ways for acne scars:
- Collagen provides immediate volume below scars, lines, or folds to lift them to the level of the surrounding skin; and
- Collagen inducing microspheres trigger your body’s own collagen production that create long-lasting improvement.
On average, Bellafill lasts between 1 and 5 years. NJ patients who have a series of 2 or 3 injections find their results last longer.
For patients in NJ seeking long term to permanent correction, Bellafill® is the perfect solution. For best results, we typically suggest 2 to 4 treatments spaced 6 weeks apart. This layering technique allows the body to build its own collagen around the PMMA microspheres, resulting in a natural appearance.
Bellafill is best for smile lines; it is not recommended for areas with thinner skin such as crow’s feet around the eyes. Not everyone is a candidate for Bellafill injections. Schedule your Bellafill appointment with Dr. Tadros in NJ to discuss if Bellafill injections are right for you.
Before and After Bellafill Photos
How is Bellafill different from other fillers?
Most dermal fillers are made out of natural or synthetic materials, which get broken down and absorbed by your body with temporary results that typically don’t last much longer than six months to a year. In order to maintain your results, you need to return for follow-up treatments once or twice a year. Bellafill is made out of a collagen microsphere material that doesn’t get absorbed by your body. In addition, this material provides important support to your skin, helping to maintain a wrinkle-free appearance much longer.
Benefits of Choosing Bellafill:
Bellafill offers you the following benefits:
- Long lasting, elegant wrinkle correction – maintain natural looking results for as long as 5 years

Bellafill side effects may include redness, swelling, lumpiness, pain or sensitivity at the injection site. Some people experience facial firmness after injection, but this usually resolves over time. Occasionally, there is some mild bruising which can last about three to seven days. Lumps and granulomas may occur with Bellafill as well as other soft tissue fillers.
