Belotero is a new injectable dermal filler comprised of hyaluronic acid, which can help to rejuvenate the face for a beautiful, youthful glow.
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the body, which helps to add volume and moisture to the skin for a youthful appearance. As we age, the hyaluronic acid diminishes, contributing to the development of lines and wrinkles.
Belotero adds volume to the face while seamlessly adapting to your natural facial contours. Formulated with the same volumizing and moisturizing component found in your skin, it is a natural choice for reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
BELOTERO IN DEPTH
by Bruce Freund, D.D.S.
Belotero is a newer-generation hyaluronic acid that is engineered as a cohesive poly-densified matrix creating a low-viscosity gel. Because of this technology, Belotero can be used to treat very superficial fine lines & wrinkles, and correct areas that have very thin skin (such as under the eyes) with a smooth, soft, long lasting result. Belotero is unique in that it integrates seamlessly with your own dermal tissues, allowing for discreet, subtle enhancement of the facial contours. At the same time, the moisturizing and rehydrating benefits help to produce a radiant glow. This is an ideal treatment for lines around the nose and mouth as well as other facial wrinkles and folds. Belotero is great for smoothing fine wrinkles around the mouth, cheeks, and the eyes. Dr. Freund also uses Belotero to improve the hollows under your eyes, fill in frown lines between your eyebrows, and correct the turn-down at the corners of the mouth.
When injected, Belotero instantly plumps and adds volume to the areas where it has been lost, treating even the finest of lines. Belotero is designed with a soft, cohesive gel that integrates into your tissue to provide subtle and even results without disrupting the natural contours of your face.
Belotero Dermal Filler is made of a material called hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic Acid is a natural substance found in your body. When injected, it acts like an inflated cushion to support facial structure and tissue that may have lost volume and elasticity due to the normal aging process. It also hydrates the surface of the skin to keep it looking fresh and supple.
HOW IS IT PERFORMED?
Belotero treatments are performed in the office setting. To maximize the patient’s comfort level, a very fine needle is used. The procedure takes about forty-five minutes to complete and results in an instant yet subtle plumping and volumizing effect.
WHAT IS THE RECOVERY?
There is little to no recovery or downtime after treatment with Belotero. Some patients experience minor redness, swelling or bruising that fades quickly. Nevertheless, patients are able to immediately return to their normal activities.
HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?
You can expect instant results upon injection. Most patients appreciate its long lasting effects, with many experiencing from 8 months to a year or more of correction from a single treatment.
