Belotero® is a super-smooth dermal filler that looks and feels natural. It is made with hyaluronic acid (HA) -- the same substance your body produces to hydrate and volumize skin.
Belotero® is an ideal filler for minimizing the finest of lines. It can be layered over dermal fillers as a finishing touch. Because it integrates so perfectly with your tissue, Belotero® tends to cause less redness and swelling than other dermal fillers.
It is effective on fine facial lines such as frown lines between the eyebrows, crow’s feet, lip lines, laugh lines running from the nose to the corner of the mouth, and “marionette lines” running from the corner of the mouth to the jaw. It works beautifully on dry, crepey skin on the decolletage. Belotero® can even fill in and soften a bump on the bridge of the nose.
After deadening the treatment area with a topical anesthetic, Belotero® is injected just under the skin. Treatment takes approximately 20 minutes. You may have some slight redness and swelling, but you may resume your regular activities immediately.
The results are instant and may last up to nine months. Most patients schedule maintenance appointments every 6 to 12 months.
Before using Belotero®, you should avoid taking aspirin, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications, St. John’s Wort, or high doses of Vitamin E supplements to minimize the risk of bruising and bleeding.
