Belotero® is a liquid filler that is introduced to the skin by injecting the solution directly to the problem area. This usually targets wrinkles around the nasolabial folds such as smile lines or forehead wrinkles. Belotero®’s versatility allows this injectable filler can be used for almost all patients, whether they have beginning wrinkles or deeper creases, as long as the patient has a relatively good skin tone. It is made from hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally found in the body and is a hydrator by nature. Belotero® reinstates this substance in the body, and promotes skin hydration. During the skin consultation with us, we will discuss all of the injectable filler treatments and then determine if Belotero® is a proper fit to attain your desired results.
How Does Belotero® Work?
It Works Within Your Skin
As we age, our skin begins to lose naturally occurring components such as collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid, leaving skin more prone to develop etched-in lines and wrinkles.
Belotero® is a hyaluronic acid injectable filler that completely integrates into the skin tissue. While some fillers are designed to rebuild facial volume and structure, Belotero® specifically treats moderate-to-severe etched-in lines and wrinkles such as vertical lip lines above and around the lips.
Belotero® Before and After
What to Expect
DURING AND AFTER THE TREATMENT
Belotero® filler injections will take about 30 minutes to complete. Wrinkle filling, facial contouring and rehydration treatments are virtually painless. Some people may experience the treatment as a mild discomfort. We can use lidocaine to enhance your comfort.
The Belotero® products are hypoallergenic fillers and usually do not require a skin test prior to injection*. The aesthetic results are immediate and you will be able to continue your daily activities as soon as your appointment is over.
*In patients with antecedents or with an active autoimmune disease or in patients presenting a history of several multiple allergies or anaphylactic shock, a skin test is required.
WHAT THE WE DO
1. We will remove any make up and the area to be treated will be cleaned thoroughly.
2. Depending on your treatment, you may be asked to frown, relax your facial muscles or purse your lips so we can identify the wrinkles or lines to be treated.
3. Dr. Tuesday will inject the filler and massages the area around it in order to deploy the product.
After treatment, some injection-related reactions may occur, including redness, swelling and slight bruising. These reactions are completely normal, generally mild to moderate, and usually disappear within a week.
What is Belotero®?
Belotero® is an injectable filler that is used to smooth moderate-to-severe etched-in lines and wrinkles on your face. Upon injection, it quickly and evenly integrates into your skin.
What is the difference from Belotero® and other fillers?
Belotero® is a hyaluronic acid injectable filler designed to integrate into facial skin tissue. Belotero® is a soft and cohesive gel that, once injected, instantly fills the skin to help smooth moderate-to-severe etched-in lines and wrinkles. While the product is versatile enough to handle moderate nasolabial folds (smile lines around the mouth), it may be an ideal option for treating delicate areas such as etched-in smile lines and vertical lip lines (thin lines that appear above and around the lips).
When can I expect results?
Immediately upon treatment, Belotero® helps smooth etched-in lines and wrinkles, such as vertical lip lines above and around your lips
How long does it last?
Belotero® may last about 6 months or more. Individual results may vary. 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.
Is it safe?
Belotero® is FDA approved and clinically proven safe and effective. Hyaluronic acid products for wrinkle correction have been available for a long time and used in thousands of treatments.
