Let’s talk about dermal fillers
Dermal fillers are one of today’s favorite cosmetic treatments because they immediately smooth out facial wrinkles and folds to give you a younger yet natural-looking appearance.
When fillers are injected just below your skin, they restore lost volume and create a cushion that diminishes the targeted lines and wrinkles. At Aesthetic Assets, we also use dermal fillers to lift your cheeks and plump your lips. If you have experience with other dermal fillers then you know they require follow-up treatments every 6 to 12 months.
Many of today’s most effective dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid, a substance that’s naturally made in your skin, where it hydrates and plumps up your skin. A few of the fillers we use at Aesthetic Assets also stimulate collagen production. Your wrinkles diminish as stronger, firmer, collagen-rich skin replaces old, loose skin at the surface.
These dermal fillers produce excellent results, but they’re gradually absorbed back into your body, so their effect diminishes over time. Depending on the brand of dermal filler used, your improved appearance may last six months to two years before you need another treatment.

What makes Bellafill so special?
Everyone loves Bellafill because it’s long-lasting. Just like the other dermal fillers, you get immediate results following the injection. But Bellafill is the only dermal filler that’s approved by the US Food and Drug Administration to be safe and effective for up to five years.
Here’s how it works. Bellafill is made from a smooth collagen gel that contains very small, round particles of polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA), a safe, biocompatible material that has been used for decades in medical implants.
The collagen gel gives you immediate volume that lifts your wrinkles. Then the microspheres of PMMA add structural support underneath your skin and also stimulate ongoing collagen production, which makes all the difference in your results.
Collagen production in your skin slows to a crawl as you get older. This normal loss of collagen is a big factor in aging because your skin gets looser, weaker, and more prone to wrinkles. Boosting collagen makes your skin firmer and younger-looking.
Although the collagen gel in your injection is gradually absorbed back into your body like other dermal fillers, the PMMA microspheres aren’t metabolized. They continue to provide structure and stimulate collagen production that takes the place of the original collagen injection.
That’s how you get results that last up to five years. And Bellafill’s unique microspheres are the reason this dermal filler is also FDA-approved to treat acne scars.
Here’s what to expect during your Bellafill session
It only takes us about 15-20 minutes to administer the injections. You may experience temporary side effects like slight redness, swelling, or pain afterward. Some patients develop temporary bumps, itching, or discoloration at the injection site. All of these side effects go away within a week. You won’t need to plan for downtime; our patients get right back to their normal routines.
