A permanent solution to wrinkles, lines, and acne scarring. Bellafill is the longest lasting FDA Approved filler available.

What is Bellafill?

Traditional hyaluronic acid fillers (i.e. Restylane, Juvederm, Voluma, etc.) dissolve within few months to a couple of years based on where they are placed in the face.  This means to maintain the look you desire you must invest in repeat treatments. Bellafill is different. It is the only filler on the market considered to be almost permanent. Studies have shown Bellafill to have lasting results for 5 years at least. 83% of the study patients had Bellafill and they were still satisfied with the results 5 years later.

How does Bellafill work?

Bellafill is made up of 80% Collagen gel, 20% PMMA (Polymethyl methacrylate) microspheres and lidocaine. Those PMMA particles will stimulate the body to create collagen and this collagen can be permanent since those PMMA may never leave the body.

Bellafill works in two phases. Stage one begins when Bellafill is injected into indentations in facial skin, to do what is commonly known as “Liquid Face lift and or Eye Brow Liquid Lift”. The collagen part in Bellafill goes to work immediately. Stage two is experienced at about 6 months; your body’s own collagen fills around the microspheres (PMMA) causing the Bellafill lifting effect. The PMMA microspheres In Bellafill provide a stimulation for your own natural collagen production which will develop over time.

So, the bottom line is that: Bellafill is injected deep into the skin. The collagen in Bellafill provides immediate lift, volume and smoothing to the skin. Results you can see instantly. As the collagen is absorbed by the body the PMMA microspheres remain behind to provide the structure and framework for your natural collagen to encompass.

Bellafill is “what you see, is what you get” type filler, it promises and Delivers its promise for years. It is the type of filler that you “Set it and Forget it” as Dr. Allen always Describes it.

Patients enjoy Bellafill more than five years for Liquid Face Facelift, Eye brow Liquid Lift, smooth skin, tear trough fullness, and smile line reduction.

Is Bellafill for you?

Bellafill is for you If you have used a soft tissue fillers before and have liked the results (i.e. Restylane, Juvederm, Voluma, etc.). Bellafill can also be if you are interested in the “Liquid Face lift and or Eye Brow Liquid Lift” without the downtime, the permanent scar and going under the knife. Bellafill provides natural appearance and it can also restore the natural fullness after any surgical facelift which usually does address the excess skin and not the volume loss with aging.

You must be 21 years of age or over to use Bellafill. Bellafill is not recommended for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding. If you have any cyst, rashes, pimples, or infection, Bellafill treatment should be postponed.


What are the possible side effects of using Bellafill?

Bruising is the most common side effect to any injection, if there is a needle, there is a chance of bruising. Taking Aspirin, Motrin, Fish oil, or are taking any medications that would increase bruising or bleeding; can make you bruise easily.

Bellafill side effects may include local swelling, redness, lumpiness, pain or sensitivity at the injection site. Some patients experience facial firmness after the injection. This will resolve over time. Lumps and granulomas may occur with Bellafill and other soft tissue fillers as well.

What are the alternatives to Bellafill?

Bellafill is the one of few injectables that rebuilds and stimulates collagen, Sculptra is another stimulant and it can be a great foundation to the face to provide Glamorous skin “Sculptra Glow” and may be combined with Bellafill for the best outcome. If you are looking for longer-lasting results; you may consider fat injections as well.

People may desire immediate results with shorter duration to see if they may like their new look, they may find another injectables like Juvederm, Restylane, and Voluma to be a better option.


We have many FDA approved injectable fillers to help soften these unwanted wrinkles. Sculptra will be the best “foundation” option to the face. Few Sculptra should be considered in every face and regardless of the age to create that glamorous skin known as “Sculptra Glow”.

Not every patient is a perfect candidate for Everything. Dr. Allen’s approach is based on “individual plan” rather than a “Product”. The best outcome from a consultation is to understand the aging process and the volume loss in the face as a result from bone and fat loss or what is known as “fat pads” and the effect of this loss on the face wrinkles.

This understand is what will make you “with the help of Dr. Allen” come with the best approach to have an affordable plan to reverse aging.
