Bellafill is a great option for men and women who wish to diminish the appearance of dynamic wrinkles and skin irregularities, like acne scars. Bellafill is not recommended for individuals with a history of severe allergies or known allergy to lidocaine. At St. Petersburg Center for Plastic Surgery, we perform a thorough consultation prior to any treatment to determine if Bellafill is right for you.
Once a consultation has been conducted and a treatment plan has been created, we will schedule your Bellafill appointment. On the day of your appointment, you will be escorted to one of our private treatment rooms and seated comfortably in one of our luxurious MedSpa chairs. On average, Bellafill takes about 15 – 30 minutes to administer and once your session is complete, you will be free to return to your daily activities.
What to Expect
After your treatment, you may experience mild redness, swelling, and bruising but these symptoms are temporary and will subside in a few days. Many patients usually notice immediate results after their session, with optimal results being evident after any swelling goes down. Our aestheticians will review any questions or concerns you may have and can discuss when to visit for a follow-up.
