Belotero is an injectable filler that is used to smooth lines and wrinkles on your face. Upon injection, it quickly and evenly integrates into your skin.
No, its acts in a totally different way. It fills in areas within the skin to reduce the depth of wrinkles, lines, and folds. The skin remains mobile and flexible, with a natural look, feel, and movement.
Belotero is a hyaluronic acid injectable filler designed to integrate into facial skin tissue. The unique manufacturing process for it yields a soft and cohesive gel that, once injected, instantly fills the skin to help smooth moderate-to-severe etched-in lines and wrinkles. it is an ideal option for treating very fine lines such as etched-in smile lines and vertical lip lines (the thin lines that appear above and around the lips).
Results are visible immediately, with lines and wrinkles smoothed and softened.
Individual results may vary, but Belotero should last about 6 months or more. Some factors that affect how long it lasts are the amount of product used and the area it is injected into. In areas that experience a lot of movement due to eating, talking, and smiling, the product may not last as long as other less active areas.
Just as wrinkles and folds vary from face to face, so does the amount of Belotero needed per treatment. It’s very individual—it depends on the amount of correction desired, the number of areas to be treated, and other factors. Your healthcare provider can better estimate once you have a consultation about your individual needs. Most patients will only need one syringe of Belotero, but occasionally two syringes may be used.
While each Belotero healthcare provider determines price in his or her own way, Belotero is priced similarly to other dermal fillers.
As with all injectable treatments, there can be some discomfort associated with the procedure. If you have concerns, discuss them with your healthcare provider, because there are effective ways to manage this during treatment. In our office, patients are always numbed for a Belotero treatment.
Belotero is made of a substance called hyaluronic acid (HA), a natural component of skin. HA binds to water, making it an ideal product for correcting wrinkles and folds, as it binds with the skin’s own water. The HA in Belotero is specially formulated to create a uniquely smooth and cohesive gel. This injectable gel blends into the natural structure of your skin, gently filling lines and wrinkles and creating a smooth natural look and feel.
Belotero is injected into the skin in a simple and quick treatment performed by a licensed healthcare provider using a fine-gauge needle. You can either sit or recline during treatment and the aftercare is minimal. In our office, board certified physicians perform all Belotero treatments.
Belotero is FDA approved and clinically proven to be safe and effective. Hyaluronic acid products for wrinkle correction have been available for many years and have been safely used in thousands of treatments around the world.
Just like any injection, you may experience mild irritation, swelling, itching, redness, bruising, or tenderness at the injection site. These side effects typically resolve very quickly. Because Belotero is generally placed more superficially in the skin, bruises are very rare.
There is no downtime associated with a Belotero treatment. In fact, most patients return to their normal daily activities immediately after leaving the office. Every patient is unique, so be sure to discuss your plans during a consultation with your healthcare provider.
