What is Belotero?
Belotero is an FDA-approved injectable dermal filler designed to instantly smooth fine lines and wrinkles in the face. Belotero is considered one of the lightest dermal fillers, and it is the most ideal treatment for patients who want to reduce fine lines around the lip, corner of the mouth, and minor marionette lines. This dermal filler is made with a hyaluronic acid gel. Hyaluronic Acid (Ha) is an important natural component found in the connective tissues of our bodies. It’s treated as a natural moisturizer in our skin and as we age our hyaluronic acid levels diminish. HA is also a molecule that attracts water. So, when injected into the skin, it acts as a natural moisturizer.
Belotero can effectively treat many types of wrinkles such as:
- Crow’s Feet
- Forehead lines
- Smile and laugh lines
- Horizontal neck creases
- Undereye wrinkles and depressions
Why choose Belotero?
Belotero can significantly improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the face. Comprised of hyaluronic acid, Belotero will plump up any existing skin tissue to help even out the facial creases. One of the popular features Belotero has to offer is that it replaces lost volume under the eyes and along the cheeks. With just one treatment, a healthy facial shape and contour can be restored.
What to expect during the procedure
The Belotero treatment is relatively quick and simple. No anesthetics are required prior to the procedure, however, a topical, numbing anesthetic may be applied before the treatment to maximize patient comfort. Using a fine gauge needle, the Belotero filler will be injected into the targeted area. The total length of time varies depending on the size of the area being treated and the amount of product being used. A typical Belotero session takes approximately 15 to 30 minutes if a topical numbing cream is not requested prior to treatment.
What to expect after the procedure
There is zero downtime involved with a Belotero treatment. Although, Belotero recovery time isn’t typically necessary, you are advised to avoid strenuous activities and excessive sun exposure. With that said, you’re able to resume your regular activities after the treatment.
How long will the results last?
The results will be apparent immediately after the Belotero treatment. Additionally, the results of the treatment will last 6 to 9 months depending on a few factors such as dosage used, how your body metabolizes the content, and age.
Am I a Good Candidate?
Since Belotero is an FDA-approved dermal filler, it’s virtually safe for anyone experiencing fine lines around the nose and mouth. The ideal candidates for Belotero treatments are patients who have “smile lines” or lines along the side of the nose and mouth.
