The Longest Lasting Collagen Infused Filler – Bellafill

Belladiamond IDHBellafill is the newest revolutionary dermal filler that grows your own collagen naturally replacing volume, treating smile lines, wrinkles and acne scars.

Jill Porter, RN is a bella Diamond injector. She is 1 of 30 providers across the Nation to achieve this elite status.

What does bella Diamond mean for you? It means Jill is a recognized Bellafill leader among physicians and other Bellafill providers. She performs significant volume of Bellafill treatments so has the experience to deliver beautiful, natural and long lasting results.

Jill is also a Bellafill Trainer and trains physicians as well as other injectors on the best placement of Bellafill to help to avoid complications and achieve optimal results.

 

Unique Collagen Filler with Immediate Results lasting for up to 5 Years

Bellafill is made up of 80% purified Bovine Collagen gel which gives immediate lifting and filling results and 20% PMMA microspheres which provides structural support for collagen growth and smoother-looking skin. The results can last up to 5 years. 

Long Safety Record

The microspheres are made of polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA), a biocompatible material that has been used in medical implants for 65 years. Bellafill has been proven safe through 5 years in the largest and longest dermal filler study ever conducted.

FDA-Approved for Acne Scars

Acne scars are very difficult to treat. Bellafill stimulates collagen at the site of scars, filling them in. Small scars can also be released using our subcision technique. This helps free the root of the scar allowing the depressed area to be released. We often recommend combining the treatment with MicroNeedling to restore the skin’s texture from the inside and out.

Finally a Beautiful Option for Difficult Areas (under the eyes and lip lines)

One of the most difficult areas to treat is under the eyes and the vertical lip lines above the mouth. With Bellafill, we are able to inject in those areas and grow your own collagen. The results are smooth and natural! The new layer of collagen not only gives you volume but improves your skin tone, firmness and texture brightening complexion.

Should I get a Bellafill skin test?

Before your first Bellafill treatment, you will receive a skin test.

 

A very small amount of Bellafill will be injected into the skin of your forearm with very minimal discomfort. This test is to confirm that you are not sensitive to lidocaine or the collagen in Bellafill. If you see any redness, swelling, hardness and or itching to the injection site, you should contact your Injector. If it is negative and you do not notice any reaction symptoms, you may receive your Bellafill treatment. Risk is less than 1% for possible reactions. This video shows how simple a Bellafill skin test injection / treatment is.

Innovative Directions in Health offers a free Bellafill skin test injection to all patients interested in receiving a Bellafill treatment. Our Injector, Jill Porter, is very experienced in injecting a wide variety of dermal fillers. She is a national Bellafill Trainer. Innovative Directions in health is a Bella Diamond Bellafill Provider which is awarded to the top 1% of Bellafill providers in the USA.

Bellafill Before & After Picture

“I don’t want anyone to know”.

 

Women often tell us this when they come in for a consultation looking for a non-surgical lift. Our goal is to provide a natural looking result, not an overdone look you see quite frequently in the tabloids or on tv. We like to call it a refresher. You still look like “you” but refreshed, confident and with something different about you that your friends and family notice but can’t quite put their finger on it – just that you look good. 

We hear this story a lot actually and it is such a compliment and testament to a job well done. We recently held a Bellafill seminar. Bellafill is the newest filler on the market that lasts 5 years and grows your own collagen. The collagen structure it lays down is uniform to your own. It naturally creates volume in your dermis and stimulates circulation which improves your skin-tone. The new collagen growing changes your skin to thinking it’s younger and improves texture, pores, fine lines and wrinkles. 

Our Injector Jill Porter, injected a model during our seminar. Guests were able to watch how easy injections were and learn how and why Jill placed the Bellafill where she did. We recommend a Bellafill Kit for those looking for a natural look that will help fight gravity and help hold the face in place as we age. Placement is key with any filler, however there are areas where your dermis thins and fat pads spread apart and migrate downwards. This is where we like to create a framework with collagen for a longer lasting youthful look.

This picture of our model was taken immediately after injecting a Bellafill kit. She looks great! Stay tuned for more pictures as her collagen starts to grow and she continues to radiate youth and natural looks.

Treat Yourself to a Worry Free Service

Susie Ries update2

I AM SO EXCITED!!

 

You may say….what what what is so exciting?? Let me tell you! One month ago I treated myself to Bellafill at Innovative Directions in Health!

That’s right! I treated MYSELF, and the whole experience was a TREAT! Here is why!

1) WORRY FREE! Jill administered the injections so beautifully. She is a true professional taking meticulous care of where the Bellafill should go, stepping back to study my face after each fill, and always being so very gentle with the tiniest needle I have ever seen. I felt like she was an artist at work! Worry free on my part!

2) IMMEDIATE RESULTS! I went to lunch with friends right after my appointment and they all mentioned how wonderful I looked! When I told them I just came from and hour of tiny injections they simply couldn’t believe it. When I told them that Bellafill keeps working for 5 years, and my own collagen will start to take over and work more on it’s own…they all wanted to call for appointments. And they did!

3) LONG LASTING RESULTS! Everyday when I look in the mirror, I am still thrilled with the results. My eyes are lifted, my skin is soft and clear, and I can’t believe it will continue to get even better.

TREAT yourself. You will be as thrilled as I am!!!

Warmly,

Susie Ries

New Solution for Wrinkles around the Mouth

Lips lines have always been challenging to injectors. Prior to Bellafill, the fillers I used to treat the lip lines around the mouth were hyaluronic acid fillers; Juvederm, Restylane, Belatero, etc. Hyaluronic fillers plump up an area and attract water to the surface of skin often creating a swollen look. After 6-9 months the hyaluronic acid goes away and the lines return to what they looked like before the filler.

By injecting Bellafill, the body is growing collagen in the area around the lips with results lasting 5 years. We are seeing beautiful, natural looking results without any puffiness by filling in the wrinkles with collagen.

The photo below was taken 2 months after a Bellafill treatment for vertical lip lines. Collagen stimulation takes about 3 weeks and continues to improve filling in the lines and smoothing out texture with the new collagen laid down. Unlike a hyaluronic filler, after the 5 years of Bellafill results do not go back to baseline. The new collagen production and renewed skin-tone is yours to keep!

Bellafill Background

Bellafill is breaking ground with collagen stimulation lasting 5 years! Bellafill has become the dermal filler of choice because it stimulates and creates your own collagen production resulting in a refreshed and natural look. We recommend Bellafill to patients who want to correct facial wrinkles, treat acne scarring and create an anti-gravity facial framework. Because Bellafill is permanent dermal filler, the manufacturer takes care to select only providers that they deem capable of administering this product.

How It Works

Bellafill contains collagen and small synthetic microspheres. The microspheres create a structure under the skin. Collagen fills the structure, adding volume to the skin and correcting lines and wrinkles. The microspheres in Bellafill are not absorbed by the body, so the body’s collagen is provided with a permanent structure to support the skin.  

What to Expect

Treatment with Bellafill is very similar to treatment with other injectable fillers. There is a skin test that is done prior to injections to identify those patients who may have an allergy to bovine collagen or lidocaine. Lidocaine is provided to minimize discomfort during injection. Upon injection, you will usually see immediate improvement to lines and wrinkles. The amount of Bellafill required will depend on the severity of the lines/wrinkles being addressed. A follow up visit will be scheduled to monitor the results of the collagen growth you experience. Results continue to improve with time as your own collagen growth is being stimulated.

 

When you are ready to experience results that stay and are natural looking, Bellafill is the choice.

KARE 11 Interview

Jill with Belinda

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.

These three treatments have Jill really excited about the way Aesthetic Treatments are headed:

  • Bellafill – the only FDA approved 5 Year filler. It is unlike any other filler as it creates your own collagen resulting in long lasting natural results and ongoing skin tone and volume improvement.
  • Radiesse – the only FDA filler indicated for Hands. We all know that the face is the #1 indicator of age, but the hands come in second for giving away a person’s age. Radiesse can restore lost volume in the back of the hands making them appear more youthful by diminishing the appearance of prominent bones, ligaments and veins and tightening crepey skin.
  • Micro-Needling – a very popular non-invasive treatment for those expecting results. The treatment uses very small needles to renew skin-tone, shrink pores, improve scarring and revitalize skin. We have had beautiful results on acne scarring.

Watch the KARE 11 video clip.

If you would like more information about these and other beauty treatments, Jill can be reached at (952) 922-2345 or email nurse@idinhealth.com. Complimentary Consultations are available.

KARE 11 event specials will be honored through February 29, 2016, please visit our Specials page.
