Belotero is an FDA-approved, injectable filler that is used to smooth out
folds and wrinkles as well as increase lip volume. It integrates directly
into the facial tissue, binding to water molecules for a smooth, natural
look. It is an excellent option for treating the delicate areas, such
as smile-lines around the mouth. The result is instantaneous and will
give you long-lasting natural enhancement.
Fast Facts on Belotero
Cheeks, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, chin, and lips.
The appearance of wrinkles and facial folds are smoothed by adding structure
and volume underneath and bringing creases back up to the surface. The
skin will remain flexible and soft.
Results typically last 6-9 months, after which there is a gradual diminishment
of the filler.
Immediately after the treatment, there may be temporary swelling or redness
for the first day. As with any injectable filler, there is a chance of
bruising, particularly in individuals taking aspirin or other medications
that may thin the blood. This typically resolves in less than one week.
