Bellafill Dermal Filler
Bellafill is the safest, longest-lasting dermal filler. Perfect for under-eye hollows, 'smoker' lines around the mouth, acne scars, as well as nose and chin augmentation.
If you have had facial fillers before, you may already know that the results are only temporary. This is due to your body’s natural ability to break down the filler, causing it to be absorbed back into your system. As a result, your wrinkles eventually return to their original state, forcing you to continuously return for more filler injections. This process can be both time consuming and very costly.
What is Bellafill?
Bellafill® is a long-lasting, injectable filler used to smooth away smile lines (nasolabial folds) and fill in acne scars. Bellafill can smooth out smile lines and acne scars for up to five years. It is comprised of small “microspheres” made of PMMA (used in medical implants for the past 50 years) and bovine collagen.
How does Bellafill Work?
The PMMA microspheres and bovine collagen in Bellafill trigger the body to generate its own natural collagen. Essentially, new collagen is formed that wraps around each PMMA ‘bead’ to help fill in wrinkles and deep scars for the long-term, while improving overall skin quality.
The PMMA microspheres, in some instances, remain at the injection site—which is usually just beneath the first layer of skin—for up to five years. For that reason, re-injections aren’t required as often as with other types of fillers.
Bellafill is particularly good for treating acne scars, lip lines around the mouth, and under-eye hollows. After multiple treatments it can be considered permanent, as it stimulates new collagen fibers to form two to three months after each series of injections.”

Frequently Asked Questions
Who is a good candidate for Bellafill?
Good candidates are adult men or women who are looking for long-lasting dermal filler results. Though suitable for injection anywhere on the face, Bellafill is ideal for under-eye hollows, ‘bar code and marionette lines’, as well as temple area.
What can I expect after my Bellafill injection?
As with any dermal filler, you may experience mild bruising, redness, or swelling around the injection site. After the procedure patients can return to their normal daily routine immediately, with no downtime. Injectable dermal fillers are often known as ‘lunchtime face lifts‘ because of the limited time required. For the first few days, patients should avoid rubbing or touching the treated area, which can cause the Bellafill to migrate out of place. The effects of the injection are seen immediately. Although in general the effects of dermal fillers are considered temporary, one advantage of Bellafill over similar products is that it is the only dermal filler to be considered permanent.
How does Bellafill work?
After injection, the body absorbs the collagen over time and the PMMA spheres remain to plump the area. Bellafill is a collagen stimulating filler. Collagen actually wraps around the PMMA spheres and increase the skin’s thickness. First-time users need to plan ahead, however, to make sure they are not among the small percentage of the population that is allergic to bovine collagen.
I had deep hollows under my eyes and always looked tired, even after a great night of sleep. I had other fillers before which worked but lasted only for a few months. Dr. Howton suggested Bellafill and I am so glad he did. He filled them in over 2 years ago and I have not needed any additional filler since then. I still look fresh and rejuvenated. I can highly recommend Bellafill and Dr. Howton. He did such an amazing job. Thank You!
