Bellafill Procedure Technique
Bellafill is a great treatment for both men and women who want to refresh their overall appearance. Bellafill treatments are ideal if you want results that look natural and last a long time. It can safely be used in most areas of the face to correct static wrinkles, including smile lines and nasolabial folds. Bellafill can also fill in acne scars, which leave visible pits in the skin. During your consultation, Dr. Kingston will listen to your goals before deciding if Bellafill is right for you and designing your treatment plan. Please tell her if you have ever had an allergic reaction, especially to lidocaine or bovine collagen.
Smooth Your Skin
When you arrive for your Bellafill treatment, the injection sites will be cleansed and a numbing cream will be applied before the injection to help you feel more comfortable during the procedure. Once you are ready, the Bellafill will be injected using either a fine needle or a cannula in the selected areas. After the injections are complete, a cold compress will be applied to your face to minimize swelling and stop any bleeding.
What to Expect with Bellafill®
After getting Bellafill, you will be able to return to normal activities right away. You may experience swelling, redness, bruising, itching, and discoloration, but these are only temporary and will resolve anywhere from within a few hours to a few days after your treatment. You should be able to see immediate improvements right away that last for up to five years. During your consultation, Dr. Kingston will discuss how often you should get Bellafill injections to sustain or improve your results.

Is it safe?
Yes. This product was approved by the FDA in 2006 and has been proven to be safe and effective for treating laugh lines, as well as acne scars. Patients must complete an allergy test prior to treatment to ensure an allergic reaction will not occur.
BOTOX or filler?
Injectable fillers add volume to the skin to help soften the appearance of surface wrinkles. BOTOX and other wrinkle relaxers temporarily freeze the underlying facial muscles, allowing them to relax, which causes the skin’s surface to appear smooth. It is common for many patients to use a combination of a wrinkle relaxer and wrinkle filler to attain the best results.
Yes, patients will see their results from a Bellafill injection almost immediately. Bellafill replaces lost volume in the skin, and the results are both immediate and long-lasting.
