Question: I want Bellafill but since it lasts 5 years, I’m looking for doctor who is very skilled with Bellafill treatments. With everyone advertising how great they are, how does one find the right Bellafill injector?
Answer: Unlike Bellafill, Botox and temporary fillers are readily offered by a wide range of doctors of many different specialties, including dentists. Bellafill is a specialty filler for facial volumization and 3-dimensional facial contouring. Bellafill requires a much higher degree of injector skill and strong aesthetic eye for detail. BellaDiamond is a category used to describe physicians who have the highest degree of expertise in Bellafill.
Many patients fear the idea of a 5 year filler because they worry that if they don’t like the results, they could be stuck with it for 5 years. This is a natural concern since we are so used to temporary fillers lasting 6-18 months, yet we still complain that temporary injectables don’t last long enough. We also see so many people in town and celebrities with unnatural filler results. However, poor filler results come from a lack of injector expertise, not the filler itself. It’s also noteworthy that most poor filler outcomes are due to temporary fillers and not Bellafill.
The fact is that many cosmetic procedures give permanent results such as eyelid lifts, brow lifts, facelifts, liposuction and breast implants. When seeking a surgeon for permanent surgical procedures, we are more inclined to look for a highly skilled surgeon. It’s important to have the same mindset when looking for a Bellafill injector.
BellaDiamond status is granted to no more than 25 Bellafill injectors in the world. BellaDiamond is a gold standard and represents an injector with superior expertise in Bellafill treatments and who performs a high volume of Bellafill, averaging 500 to 600 syringes per year. These injectors only perform such a high volume because of the high degree of satisfaction their patients have from their Bellafill treatments.
So unlike Botox, Restylane or Juvederm, when considering a 5 year filler like Bellafill, a BellaDiamond injector can make the difference between a highly satisfied patient with natural results vs. an inferior outcome. You can log on to Bellafill.com to verify BellaDiamond status of your doctor.
