Belafil is a non-resorbable injectable dermal filler for the correction of wrinkles and lines on the face. Belafil is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for correctıng smile lines (nasolabial folds) but it is sometimes used to fill lines, wrinkles or contour defects in other areas. It is a formulation of medical grade polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) microspheres and bovine collagen along with lidocaine and buffers. The PMMA microspheres in Belafil are not absorbed by the body and therefore provide permanent support for wrinkle correction.
