KARE 11 Interview

Jill Porter, our RN / Injection Specialist has been injecting Botox and Fillers for over 10 years. Jill was invited to the KARE 11 TV studios to talk with Belinda Jensen about a few game changing beauty products that hit the market in 2015.



Fountain of Youth for the Face

KSTP TV Twin Cities Live Reports

You have choices when it comes to smoothing out your skin. Twin Cities Live TV Reporter, Kelli Hanson, investigates Bellafill, a promising treatment on the market. Find out why, Innovative Directions in Health’s Injector, Jill Porter says Bellafill offers permanent results lasting over 5 years and how it provides the most natural looking results on the market for wrinkles and replacing volume.

Could Bellafill be the “fountain of youth‿ for the face?

Bellafill is unique – not only does it immediately fill out your skin, but it’s specially formulated to ensure the injections don’t disappear through absorption into your body. Instead, it is a dual-acting filler and its microspheres vitalize your own skin to produce more collagen, which continue to lift up the skin to its natural height, fading lines and wrinkles and restoring skin texture. This is the key to Bellafill’s long-lasting results – new collagen that is yours to keep.

Jill Porter is a trainer for Bellafill providers and is one of the top Bellafill injectors in the Nation. Schedule a complimentary consultation to see how your appearance could benefit with Bellafill.
