What is Bellafill?
Bellafill is a soft tissue filler that contains polymethylmethacrylate (PMMa) microspheres. PMMA is a material used in medicine for many years, so its safety has been well documented. The tiny microspheres are not visible to the human eye, but are extremely efficient in providing support to the underlying skin structure that virtually smoothes away wrinkles from the inside out.
Bellafill also contains collagen, which offers results immediately after treatment. Microspheres remain after the initial collagen is absorbed, stimulating the body to produce more collagen for long-lasting results. Collagen is the substance found in skin tissue that provides a smoother, more youthful look to the skin’s surface. Over time, our bodies produce less collagen, leading to thinning, sagging skin and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. By restoring collagen levels, we can effectively produce a younger appearance.
"Dr. Jeffrey Olson is the best there is. I’ve been to a lot of there types of Doctors and Dr. Olson really stands out. He is a gifted magician of a doctor, and he never goes overboard. He also gives about the most gentle shot I’ve ever had, and I have a horrific phobia of needles. His office is low key, relaxed and lovely. And he is a calming force of nature. I recommend him to all my friends and my wife is also a patient of his, and loves him as well."- M.D. / Yelp / Mar 14, 2019
"What can I say.. Dr. Olson was amazing, this is not the first time I have had injections.. I have tried other establishments both here and In NYC. As soon as you walk in the door you he makes you feel welcomed. He explains the entire procedure with mirror in hand. Dr. Olson is so knowledgeable and his bedside manner is easing, and I had zero pain after the procedure. My concern was to be ensured it looked natural. I highly recommend JPO Aesthetics and Dr. Olson, you will not be disappointed. Thank you Dr. Olson...By the way love your billboard.."- T.L. / Google / Jul 02, 2021

"Dr. Jeff was welcoming and comforting. I was nervous as this was my fist time!! He made me feel welcome and better about myself. Really pointing out my positives and improving on the spots that could use some love! Dr. Jeff has a true artistic talent improving what we are blessed with. And not over doing it! I looked easily 10 years younger, and felt even better than that! And when I was home and had a question he contacted me directly. No answering service, let us get back to you! He was caring, attentive, and so wonderful! And GORGEOUS!! Just a really wonderful experience!! C.B."- C. / Google / Jun 17, 2021
"Had the best experience w/ Dr. Olson at JPO Aesthetics. I had a lot of questions about wrinkle relaxers like Botox for heavy lines in my forehead. For my first time experience I was nervous about pain but it was quick and simple! Actually kinda like it. Will be back in 3-4 months."- C.A. / Google / Oct 30, 2020
Any Special Considerations?
The FDA does recommend physicians do collagen skin testing as the product is bovine in origin. After placing the test dose on the forearm, most practitioners wait approximately 1 month to rule out outlying allergic reactions. Due to recent purification processes, the risk is less than 1% for possible reactions.
Who Should Have Bellafill Treatments?
Bellafill is an effective filler treatment for both men and women with nearly all skin types and tones. The amount injected into the treatment area can be customized to the unique needs of each individual patient. Those with known allergies to bovine collagen or lidocaine, or have a history of thick scarring may not be able to use Bellafill. The formula is primarily used to address wrinkles caused by gravity and loss of volume, such as nasolabial folds, smile lines and marionette creases.
How does it Work?
Bellafill is administered by injection using a fine needle that causes little discomfort. Lidocaine in the formula also adds to your comfort during and after the procedure. Most Bellafill treatments take 30-45 minutes to complete, depending on the size of the treatment area and the number of syringes needed.
What is Recovery Like?
There is no recovery after a Bellafill treatment – patients may return to work and regular activities right away. Some patients may experience mild redness or swelling around the injection sites, which subsides within a few hours after the procedure. There is rarely much discomfort during or after treatment.
What Kind of Results can I Expect?
Initial results can be seen as soon as the procedure is finished. You will notice your skin is visibly smoother and facial creases are less obvious. Over time, your results will continue to improve as the formula stimulates your body’s own collagen production. Some patients find their Bellafill results last for many months, or even years, before any type of touch-up treatment is required.
Bellafill is a minimally-invasive, long-lasting way to achieve a more youthful look. The formula effectively restores facial volume while virtually eliminating the appearance of some wrinkles. The procedure is quick and nearly painless, with no downtime involved. To learn more about this revolutionary dermal filler, contact JPO Aesthetics today.
