What Is Belotero?
Updated: Mar 29, 2019
Belotero is an injectable filler that helps smooth laugh lines and wrinkles, which may help reduce years from one's appearance. For those interested in the effects of Belotero, here's what to know about the treatment.
What Is Belotero?
Belotero is an HA dermal filler, meaning it is made of a naturally occurring substance called hyaluronic acid. HA fillers aim to renew rigidity, hydration, and turgor to the skin without affecting cellular movement and regeneration. The HA in Belotero is created in a proprietary process that results in a smooth, cohesive injectable gel. Unlike some HA dermal fillers, however, Belotero is specifically designed to integrate into the tissue of the recipient's skin, meaning it likely won't affect or change the natural contours of their face.
Timeline of Results
Those who receive Belotero could enjoy smoothed-out fine lines and wrinkles immediately upon treatment. Additionally, these results may last up to six months or more. The longevity of the results can vary based upon the area of injection. Areas that experience more movement from eating, talking, and smiling may require more routine treatments than stagnant areas.
Belotero Injection Procedure
During the treatment, a licensed healthcare provider injects Belotero with a fine-gauge needle. Although there is usually some discomfort with all injectable or dermal filler treatments, there is typically little to no downtime associated with Belotero. Most patients have no trouble returning to their normal daily activities immediately after the procedure. Some patients may experience irritation, swelling, or tenderness that usually lasts no longer than seven days.
Belotero is FDA-approved, and due to the simplicity of the procedure and its minimal recovery time, there's practically no bad time to schedule a treatment.
