Belotero

BELOTERO

Belotero is a FDA approved dermal filler, made from Hyaluronic Acid (HA). A naturally occurring substance, HA safely encourages the body’s own production of Collagen to provide long-lasting results. The innovative dermal filler can significantly improve fine lines around the eyes and mouth, plump tissues, and restore volume to ‘hollow’ areas along the cheeks. One treatment with Belotero can restore healthy facial contours for up to nine months. Although some of Belotero’s benefits can be seen immediately after application, as the body’s Collagen supply is replenished, the results will continue to improve.

Belotero can help improve:

  • Moderate to severe facial wrinkles
  • Crow’s Feet
  • Nasolabial Folds
  • Marionette Lines
  • ‘Hollow’ areas below the eyes
  • Sunken cheekbones
  • Lip Lines

THE IDEAL CANDIDATE FOR BELOTERO

Ideal candidates for Belotero include men and women who are experiencing the beginning stages of aging around the nose, mouth, and eyes. Anyone noticing the appearance of fine lines around the eyes and mouth, or a loss of volume across the cheeks, may benefit from Belotero. The innovative dermal filler is safe for men and women, of all skin type or ethnicity. The ideal patient will be in overall good health, understand the dermal filler process, and hold reasonable expectations for their final results. Since Belotero has a thinner texture, it is primarily effective for mild-to-moderate wrinkling and volume loss, so it should be used primarily by patients looking for subtle but effective correction of early aging rather than severe wrinkling.

BELOTERO FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQ)

ARE BELOTERO INJECTIONS PAINFUL?

Most patients report only minimal or mild discomfort during treatment and no real discomfort afterward. A specially formulated numbing cream is used that alleviates most discomfort. 

DO THE RESULTS LAST LONG?

It depends on where the Belotero is injected. In areas that require more movement, such as the lips, it may last up to six months. In the under eye area or other places with less motion, the results can last up to a year or slightly longer.

ARE THERE DIFFERENT LEVELS OF BELOTERO AVAILABLE?

In Europe, Belotero is available in soft, basic, and intense forms for different purposes. Only the basic version is currently available in the United States. Fortunately, it is versatile enough filler that it can still be effectively used for most purposes.

WILL BELOTERO CAUSE MY UNDER-EYE AREA TO TURN BLUE?

The blue discoloration is known as the Tyndall effect, and it is a side effect of many older hyaluronic-acid-based fillers. Fortunately, Belotero is immune to this effect since it uses a different method of processing the hyaluronic acid particles rather than simply suspending them in the gel.

IS IT POSSIBLE TO REMOVE THE FILLER IF I CHANGE MY MIND AFTERWARD?

Yes. One of the advantages of Belotero is that it is composed of hyaluronic acid (HA). If necessary, HA fillers can be dissolved with an enzyme in a very simple procedure. Experienced injectors rarely need to remove any filler following injection, but this is a benefit to have as a potential option. Before making that decision, however, you should wait for at least a week to be sure that all swelling is gone and you’re seeing the final results of the treatment.
