Reduce Your Facial Wrinkles
What is Belotero?
Belotero is a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler approved by the FDA to fill moderate to severe nasolabial folds, i.e., the lines running down the sides of your nose. As a dermal filler, it injects the hyaluronic acid components under the skin’s surface to add volume and fill out the targeted lines and creases. Different consistencies of Belotero are used to treat different lines around your face.
What is Hyaluronic Acid?
Hyaluronic acid is the primary component in Belotero and most other dermal fillers. It’s a naturally-occurring, biodegradable, and biocompatible component found in your skin. It binds with water to enhance your natural facial volume, making your skin appear smoother. The natural disintegration of hyaluronic acid is usually responsible for the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. As such, restoring your natural hyaluronic acid reserves also smoothens your facial skin and fills the wrinkles.
What Happens During the Belotero Treatment?
Your Belotero treatment starts with a personal consultation with our board-certified cosmetic providers. We discuss your cosmetic goals and review your medical history to determine if you’re a suitable candidate for the treatment. If so, we clean your face and apply a topical numbing cream to ensure a painless experience.
Topical anesthesia isn’t necessary because Belotero already contains an anesthetic component called lidocaine. The provider will mark the injection spots on your face, inject a highly-calibrated Belotero dose via a fine-gauge needle, and massage the area to spread the filler evenly. The treatment duration depends on the number of injection spots.
What Does Belotero Treat?
Belotero has received FDA approval to treat the nasolabial folds, but it also treats other parts of the face, such as the cheeks, chin, lips, and forehead. When injected carefully, Belotero fills the lines around your nose, mouth, and eyes. It can also reduce some acne scars, fill the forehead lines, plump your lips, and enhance your facial volume and contours.
What Does Belotero Recovery Include?
You might experience mild swelling, redness, bruising, and tenderness around the injection spots, but the side effects dissipate in a few days. You should avoid direct exposure to sunlight and alcohol consumption for at least 24 hours. However, you can resume most of your daily activities immediately with no downtime.
When Do the Results Appear? How Long Do the Results Last?
Belotero produces immediate results, though you’ll truly appreciate the results after the side-effects dissipate. The overall results last for 6 to 18 months, depending on the dosage, treatment area, and how fast your body metabolizes the hyaluronic acid components. You can extend the results with maintenance treatments.
