What Is Belotero?
Belotero is an FDA approved hyaluronic acid dermal filler. It is uniquely designed to fill fine lines and wrinkles while maintaining completely normal facial movement and expression. After its placement into the skin, Belotero integrates smoothly and readily, producing a natural and more youthful look.
How Does It Work?
Belotero is a hyaluronic acid gel. Hyaluronic acid is a sugar naturally found in every human being. As you age, your hyaluronic acid levels decrease and Belotero helps to restore them, resulting in younger looking skin. Belotero is highly biocompatible and no allergy testing is needed before treatment.
How is Belotero Different?
Belotero is unique in the way it integrates with your skin’s tissue. It is particularly useful in filling very fine lines and wrinkles.
The gel formulation is soft and cohesive and the results are instant. We often use this product on smile lines, vertical lip lines, and wrinkles around the eyes. Belotero’s unique structure completely fills the dermal spaces and produces a lasting natural cosmetic effect with smooth transitions between treated and untreated areas. This capacity to completely fill the dermal spaces provides a lasting natural looking effect.
Results from Belotero are visible immediately after completion of the treatment, with lines and wrinkles softened and reduced. Although every patient is different, we typically find that Belotero injections last about six months. Areas that are prone to movement may need more frequent application than less active areas.
Belotero is a no-downtime filler. Patients can resume all of their normal activites immediately after leaving the office. Many of our patients like to schedule their appointments around lunch time and then return to work immediately after treatment. There may be a bit of swelling or redness at the injection sites. These side effects are usually minimal and typically fade away quickly.
