BellaDiamond Injectors: Who Are We?

Question: I’ve read that you are a BellaDiamond injector. I’m interested in Bellafill, the 5-year filler, for my hollow cheeks and deep smile lines. Is a doctor’s BellaDiamond status an important consideration in having Bellafill treatments?
Answer: Several important factors should be taken in to account when having Bellafill treatments. For one, filling of facial lines and grooves is a 2-dimensional process that can be achieved through a relatively simple skill set compared to 3-dimensional facial volumization. Facial volumization requires greater technical skill to create 3-dimensional contours that look natural. It also requires a deeper understanding of the complex facial anatomy. Thirdly, volume correction of one area such as the cheeks may cause a disproportionate face if the injector fails to recognize the other parts of the face that need simultaneous volumization to maintain facial balance.
To date, there are no more than 25 BellaDiamond injectors in the world. We typically perform up to 500-600 syringes of Bellafill each year, positioning us as the highest volume injectors of Bellafill. With this high treatment volume also comes a level of injector expertise in 3-dimensional facial volumization that surpasses a significant majority of other injectors.
Ideally, Bellafill treatments should not be performed by anyone who does several syringes every now and then. You will likely find a significant difference in the result with the BellaDiamond injector who, in comparison, performs well over several hundred per year.
Bellafill requires a strong commitment, on the part of the injector, to using the product regularly and consistently to assure the desired results. Bellafill is most suitably performed by a surgeon who has a “permanent” rather than “temporary” mindset to increase the likelihood of an “error-free”, natural result. Unlike errors with temporary fillers which go away, Bellafill should only be performed by an experienced expert injector who leaves very room for error.
