Belotero® is a monophasic hyaluronic acid-based gel dermal filler that reduces facial wrinkles and makes your skin look smoother, younger, and healthier. Belotero® contains hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance found in the body that starts to dwindle over time. By injecting it into the face, it will stimulate the body’s natural production of collagen.
Belotero® does have an advantage over other hyaluronic fillers due to its ability to treat superficial or fine lines. It is a simple, fast and inexpensive way to achieve the look you desire. This product can be used to fill in scars, give your lips a fuller look, take away dark circles under your eyes, and increase elasticity. Patients who receive Belotero® experience minimal discomfort during injection and also don’t have to worry about an allergy test prior to the operation.
Your doctor will first apply numbing cream to ease any discomfort you may feel. Depending on your treatment area, you may be asked to frown, to relax your facial muscles or to purse your lips in order to identify the wrinkles to be treated. Belotero® is then injected into the treatment area or areas with a very fine needle. It is a quick in-office procedure that takes about 30 minutes. You will see results immediately and may experience some redness and swelling that will resolve on its own in about a week. After the injections, the aesthetic results are immediate. There is no recovery time following this procedure; you can continue your day as normal as soon as you leave the office. Most patients find that they enjoy maintenance injections every six to 12 months.
