Bellafill ®, by Suneva Medical, is one of the fastest growing fillers on the market and is a great lipoatrophy treatment option. The only permanent filler that is FDA approved, it can be used to treat moderate/severe facial volume loss in the nasolabial folds and cheeks, as well as recently, proven in a ground breaking study to be an effective treatment for acne scars.

The product itself is perfect for HIV lipoatrophy patients who want a dramatic improvement in their appearance that lasts a very long time, without the need for yearly touchups and the inconvenience associated with getting injections period. In the long run it is more cost effective than Radiesse® and Sculptra®, due to the 5-10 year duration of the Bellafill ® product compared with 1-2 years with Sculptra® and Radiesse®.

PAP is not available for Bellafill ® currently in 2014. However, PAP usually does not cover the full cost to do a complete facial restoration and for most, takes a long time to get approval and find a doctor that will do the procedure. Another thing to consider.
