In-Op Time: N/A


in Baltimore, MD

Dr. Papel, Dr. Kontis, and Dr. Brown are highly sought after, premier doctors in the United States for facial surgeries and non-surgical facial enhancement. They provide BellaFill injections for those patients in Baltimore, Washington, D.C., Annapolis and the surrounding areas of Maryland who want youthfulness-enhancing results with minimal procedure time, minimal discomfort, minimal downtime, and optimal results.

What is BellaFill®?

Bellafill® is the one and only injectable collagen filler whose unique, long-lasting microspheres instantly smooth facial wrinkles, especially nasolabial folds, by adding collagen back into your skin. Bellafill® is also ideally suited for treating acne scarring. A BellaFill® injection from Dr. Papel, Dr. Kontis, or Dr. Brown consists of bovine collagen and biocompatible microspheres, which ensure immediate, natural-looking results that continue to improve with time.

Benefits of Bellafill®

Bellafill® is a proven and reliable dermal filler that will give you a much younger look as the collagen growth cycle in your skin is accelerated and expanded by your body’s reinvigorated collagen production.

There are many benefits to choosing treatment with Bellafill® including:

  •         Comfortable, in-office injection process
  •         Quick treatment with immediate, long-lasting results
  •         Improves the appearance of wrinkles such as nasolabial folds
  •         Can smooth the appearance of deep acne scarring

Bellafill® is the successor to ArteFill® and has similar properties, except BellaFill® ensures even better results and offers more benefits. Unlike ArteFill®, Bellafill® is approved for the correction of moderate to severe, atrophic, distensible facial acne scars on the cheek in patients over the age of 21.

Who is a Good Candidate for BellaFill®?

You may be a candidate for Bellafill® if you wish to improve the appearance of moderate to severe smile lines around the nose and mouth, or experience deep acne scarring. Bellafill® is a great solution for those who want to improve early signs of aging but are not ready for a surgical procedure like a facelift. With Bellafill®, you can achieve facial rejuvenation with no surgery, incisions, or downtime required. The only unique consideration with Bellafill® is that some weeks before your injection, a skin test is done to exclude the possibility of any allergic reactions to any of the active ingredients in Bellafill®.

How is a BellaFill® Treatment Performed?

After topically numbing the area to be treated, Dr. Papel, Dr. Kontis, or Dr. Brown will utilize extremely tiny, almost microscopic, needles to inject BellaFill® beneath the folds of your fine lines and wrinkles in the targeted areas of your face. Immediately following these skillfully administered injections, you will begin to notice how BellaFill® plumps the skin and immediately reduces wrinkles and nasolabial folds making them less visible. The injection process only takes about 20 minutes to complete.

Results of Bellafill®

After your BellaFill® treatment at the Aesthetic Center at Woodholme, you will be able to return to your regularly-scheduled activities, as well as your normal daily routine. With no downtime at all, other than possibly some bruising and swelling for a few days following your treatment, your Bellafill® results will become more visible over time and your skin will look rejuvenated. The results of optimal treatments with Bellafill® can last for up to 5 years. We recommend occasional touch-up sessions to maintain your youthful facial volume and collagen levels.
