Margaret L. Larson, ARNP, expert injector and owner of Larson Family Medicine & Medical
Aesthetics in Bellevue, Burien, Lake Tapps and University Place is the top injector in the USA of the longest lasting filler, Bellafill.
Margaret received the “Bella Diamond” award in uploads/2014 for her expert skill and her achievements in the aesthetics field.
What is Bellafill®?
Bellafill®, formerly known as Artefill®, is the revolutionary result of when true science meets the field of aesthetic medicine. Bellafill® is like other dermal fillers, but far more advanced.
Comprised of microspheres, Bellafill® can be described as similar to an implant because it is not absorbed by the body. Bellafill® is FDA approved for treatment of nasolabial folds and for correction of acne scars.
Margaret L. Larson, ARNP, is very skilled with Bellafill, and has also used Bellafill® to create the full “liquid facelift”, treatment for under-eye bags, nose correction (nonsurgical nosejob), lip enhancement, hand rejuvenation, brow lift, and other custom designed procedures.
How long does Bellafill® last?
At the 5 year mark, the clinical study found that 90% of patients treated with Bellafill® were “very satisfied” or “satisfied” with their treatments. The 10 year study has not been concluded yet, so officially the manufacturer of Bellafill®, Suneva Medical, hasn’t made claim to the 10 year mark.
But, at our practice we’ve seen Bellafill results last longer than 5 years, and often the results get better and better. The microspheres in Bellafill incite natural collagen production over time, as you can see in the images below:
How much Bellafill® do I need?
Similar to treatments at a plastic surgeon’s office, every face is different and will require a different number of syringes to achieve the aesthetic goal. Because Bellafill® lasts for so long, you can do little at a time to get to the look you want because it will build on itself like scaffolding – unlike with temporary filler that will be metabolized by the time a second treatment is administered.
What is the cost of Bellafill®?
At Larson Family Medicine & Medical Aesthetics the regular price for Bellafill® is $1000 a syringe. Although it costs a little bit more than temporary filler, it will last for a very long time.
We consider temporary fillers as a great opportunity to try fillers for the first time, but encourage our patients to invest in Bellafill® as a long term solution to avoid injection fatique. Repeated re-injection will not only do damage to the tissue, but will cost much more over time than a one time treatment of Bellafill®.
Specials and packages are available often at Larson Medical Aesthetics and are best found on Facebook or you can email email@example.com to request to be added to the email list.
What happens after treatment?
Swelling, some bruising, redness and tenderness is normal after any injection procedure. Every body responds differently. The slight swelling will typically go down after a couple days, but some experience that it will take up to two weeks for the swelling to completely dissipate.
When will I see results?
After treatment you’ll have instant results! As soon as the microspheres are injected, they’re in!
