Beauty expert Iani Silveira is one of my dear friends, not least because she has her own concierge aesthetics business (although don’t tell her I said that!) Bella Vida Aesthetics is a cosmetics service that delivers professional non-surgical treatments in the comfort of your own home. Of course, I had to try it for myself. Iani came over to my place recently and sculpted my jawline using dermal filler injections. We also sat down to discuss her booming business and her signature treatment, the Bella Vida Instant BBL.
Although she is based in Miami, Iani travels all over the United States treating her VIP clients. “I am a board-certified family nurse practitioner with my special certifications in aesthetic and regenerative medicine,” she says.
Iani started out working in clinics but noticed that a lot of patients were requesting home visits. “Most people don’t like going to an office and leaving looking swollen or like they got something done,” she explains. “I’m able to come do your treatments safely and then you’re able to relax at home. It’s perfect and a lot of my clients like the concierge because it’s more one-on-one. We get time to talk, catch up, do your treatments and you don’t feel rushed. If you come to a clinic to see me it’s 15-30 minute windows so it’s a bit quicker, but this is more personal. I like it better, my patients like it better and you get to do it at home so it’s comfortable.”
Iani’s newest brainchild is the Bella Vida Instant BBL, which standards for Brazilian Butt Lift. It’s a non-surgical, FDA-approved process which offers instant results using filler injections, rather than an invasive fat transfer.
“I’ve been really, really excited for this. I’ve been working for it for a very long time,” Iani gushes. “I actually opened up a training institute so that I can train other physicians, nurse practitioners and clinics on the trademark and patented method, the Bella Vida Instant BBL.”
Iani says the treatment is perfect for “those patients who don’t have time for surgery and recovery.” It takes an average of around six weeks to recover from a surgical Brazilian butt lift, however with the Bella Vida Instant BBL this process is shortened to just one week.
In addition, a patient must have a certain amount of fat to undergo fat transfer surgery, which is not the case for the Bella Vida Instant BBL.
“I’m using an FDA-approved filler and basically you get an instant lift,” says Iani. “I could fix your hip dips [or] cellulite and it’s absolutely instant. Then, it just activates your own collagen so that it gets better in time.”
So is it a more natural alternative to the classic butt lift, I ask?
“It’s a very natural alternative and it’s safe,” Iani confirms. “Again, I’ve been doing this for a very long time but I just started to focus on booties because here in Miami everyone wants a booty and we have to be ready to be in bikinis at all times. Other than a bit of bruising, you recover in about a week and you’re ready to get in a bikini.”
Now, it’s time for my treatment. I’m much more relaxed than I’d usually be. There’s something anxiety-inducing about a clinical environment, and Iani’s concierge service takes all of that away.
Iani sculpts my jaw using dermal fillers to give my face a sharper, more defined appearance. The treatment is quick. All it feels like is a few pinches to the jaw, which is so much more appealing than going under the knife.
When Iani said the results would be instant, she wasn’t kidding. I can see the difference right away. It’s unbelievable – and I love it. I had the right side injected first. You can really see the difference between the two sides of my face before I got the left side injections.
In terms of aftercare, Iani warns not to exercise for the rest of the day as it can cause inflammation. She recommends arnica if I happen to bruise, as it will cut the recovery time in half.
The filler will last for a minimum of eighteen months, but in most clients it lasts two to three years. Not bad for a procedure that took mere minutes to perform. “It’s an amazing product, it lasts long so you don’t have to get poked over and over again and you get instant results. That’s my major thing. I want you to get instant results and I want instant gratification.” That’s definitely something I can get behind.
