What is Bellafill?
Would you like to educate yourself more about dermal fillers, like Bellafill, at Lincoln Park Aesthetics? We would like to extend an invitation to you in our Chicago, IL office to discover more about this filler with a polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) base. Faces often lose volume for a variety of reasons, but significant weight loss and age are major contributors. This dermal filler works by incorporating the Bellafill formula under the surface of the skin to fill in the areas that appear sunken or hollow. There are a variety of fillers that can help meet your expectations and desires. To find out which injectable fillers are right for you, schedule a consultation today.
"When I was younger I got a burn which resulted in a large depressed (quarter sized) scar on the side of my face. After two Bellafill treatments the scar has never looked better. Maggie was gentle and the injection itself wasn’t painful. She explained the whole process, safety of the treatment, and what to expect. I recently had engagement photos done, and I’m so happy I didn’t have to be self-conscious of my scar. I came to Lincoln Park Aesthetics looking for scar treatment, now I’ve been introduced to Dysport, tattoo removal, and skin care products. I never thought I would be someone that would get Botox/dysport but I’m really happy with how much the wrinkles have improved. It’s easy to become a regular here, the staff is knowledgeable, treatments are efficient, products are noticeably different than what you buy at a regular store, results of treatment are life-changing."- A.S. / Yelp / Apr 04, 2016
"Another Procedure by Dr G with Awesome Results! - My first procedure with Dr Gutowski was a few years ago, a Mommy Makeover that changed my life! The tummy still looks great and my breasts feel natural. But then my face needed some work. Dr G's talent with fillers gave me hope. Over the last 3 years, some well placed Botox, Bellafill and Restylane at Afresh Medical Spa did the trick. Then this year, he fixed my upper eyelids and did liposuction on my neck at the same time - all done awake in his office facility in less than 2 hours. What a difference it made (my younger sister is jealous). The staff is awesome and Ellen makes sure everything is done "concierge style". Will be having my face treated with a CO2 laser this winter."- Anonymous / Vitals / Oct 04, 2019
Am I a candidate for BellaFill?
Model candidates for Bellafill would be any person looking to decrease the presence of fine lines and wrinkles. It is a promising option for women and men who are not comfortable with the scars that can result from a surgical facelift. In most situations, individuals with significant signs of aging or who have lost a substantial amount of weight have areas of skin on their face that took the fall. Based on whether you want to address fine lines or are wanting to create plumper lips, your injector will ask about your goals before determining which filler will deliver better results.
Our Bellafill Injection Technique
Before your Bellafill injections, our aesthetics team will consult with you to gain insight into your cosmetic goals and decide what product may best produce them. If you are concerned about discomfort from the needle, your injector may apply a numbing agent to minimize the pain of the injections. Our aesthetics team will decide the amount of filler that is appropriate and will continuously and gently inject it through a very fine needle. Depending on the desired outcome, either half or an entire syringe could be used.
What to Expect
Bellafill injections are performed as an in-office procedure in a very short amount of time. Due to the use of anesthetic, the process is usually very tolerable pain wise and does not require downtime. You can expect swelling or bruising initially, but these symptoms will dissipate within a couple of days. Typical results can last from three months to a year based on the type of filler used and the placement of the injections. To maintain optimal results, our aesthetics team may recommend touch-up injections when needed.
