Belotero can be used to volumize and define lips, contour chins and noses and plump sunken cheeks and temples, to give a youthful, lifted appearance.
How does Belotero® work ?
A hyaluronic acid-based injectable filler, Belotero is FDA-approved for smile lines, but it also treats fine lines around your lips, chin and nose wrinkles, as well as neck and chest areas, smoothing your look for about six months.
What can Belotero treat ?
Belotero is perfect for individuals seeking a more youthful complexion. This treatment effectively improves skin texture, reduces age spots, gets rid of lines and wrinkles and improves volume loss.
Wrinkles occur when the collagen in skin begins to break down and lose structure. This occurs most often around the eyes, mouth and lips, forehead and nasolabial folds, which are the wrinkles running from the nose to the corners of the mouth.
What is a Belotero session like ?
Belotero for wrinkles employs a fine needle to inject the dermal filler into the skin to treat affected areas. Our expert Forefront dermatologists are specially trained to administer this procedure, and can have your treatment completed in less than 20 minutes.
If you are interested in Belotero, the skin experts at Forefront Dermatology can develop a treatment plan that is safe, effective and personalized for your health needs and the condition of your skin.
What results can be expected from Belotero ?
You should have noticeable results right after your treatment, though best results will be visible in about one to two weeks and last up to 6 months.
Belotero requires minimal recovery time, and you should be able to resume regular activity almost immediately after your treatment. You might experience some slight pain and swelling at the injection site, but applying ice or a cold pack will provide quick relief.
For 24 hours after your treatment, avoid:
- strenuous exercise
- direct sun exposure or extreme heat
- alcohol intake
- non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and aspirin
- stimulation to your face (such as a massage)
