The popularity of dermal fillers over the past few years has increased and will continue to do so. One of the reasons why fillers are popular is the fact that they are so effective, involve no surgery, and take only minutes to complete. One of the few things that some consider a drawback about fillers is the fact that they must be maintained. Many fillers last up to nine months maximum. With Bellafill, results last up to five years.

What is Bellafill?

Bellafill is an FDA-approved dermal filler that is proven to have long-lasting results. It is formulated from collagen, a natural substance found in the skin which makes it appear firm and youthful. It also contains polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) beads. These are microspheres (very small spheres) that support the skin and keep the filler from breaking down.

How does Bellafill work?

Bellafill is unlike other popular fillers, most of which are hyaluronic acid-based, which generally dissolves within several months. Bellafill uses microspheres (very tiny beads) suspended in a collagen gel. This way, your skin is supported, and the microspheres create a scaffold for the structure of your skin. The natural production of collagen is stimulated by these microspheres for an incredibly natural restoration of skin volume, reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles for up to five years.

Am I a candidate for Bellafill?

Bellafill is safe for most patients, but it does require a skin test. The test is to ensure we are 100 percent sure that Bellafill is the best filler to use for you. Bellafill is not recommended if you are:

  • Under 21
  • Have severe allergies
  • Are allergic to bovine collagen
  • Have a medical condition that causes irregular scarring

If you are not a candidate for Bellafill, there are still many other procedures that help improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars so it is best to schedule a consultation with Dr. Sheena Kong to discover the best procedure for you.

Can Bellafill be used for hip dips, a fuller buttock and a non-surgical butt lift?

Yes, absolutely! Like Sculptra, a Bellafill Butt Lift can be performed to provide enhanced volume and shaping in the lower body for a more feminine, sculpted physique. A non-surgical Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) with Bellafill has far lower risks of complications and takes a fraction of the time when compared with fat transfer or implant placement. To get the best results, Dr. Kong often combines a Bellafill BBL with Emsculpt treatments to achieve a noticeably toned and sculpted buttock area.

Why Choose Sheena Kong?

Choosing where to have your Bellafill treatment done is extremely important. This is especially true for a long-lasting filler such as Bellafill. You must have this procedure performed by a medical professional that is highly trained in cosmetic injectables (and specifically Bellafill). Dr. Sheena Kong is a board-certified internal medicine physician that has an extensive background in long-lasting fillers. She has been through countless hours of training on Bellafill and is fully certified in the administration of long-lasting injectables.
