What is Belotero?
Made up of hyaluronic acid gel, Belotero is a dermal filler created to smooth fine lines, deep wrinkles, nasolabial folds, acne scars, and volumize the lips. Belotero is specially formulated to create a smooth gel texture, providing a natural look and feel. Unlike neuromodulators like Botox, Belotero fills in areas of the skin while leaving skin flexible for comfortable movement.
Common areas treated with Belotero include:
• Nasolabial Folds
• Vertical Lip Lines
• Corners of the Mouth
• Smile Lines
• Chin Wrinkles
Healthy individuals 21 years of age or older who wish to smooth lines and wrinkles are often good candidates. Be sure to tell Dr. Sarraga if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, as it is not known how Belotero will work in these circumstances. A consultation is needed to decide if Belotero is a good match for you.
Belotero results are immediate after treatment and will last about six months. Some patients may find that in areas that experience a lot of movement due to talking, smiling, or chewing, the product may dissolve faster than in other areas.
After treatment, some patients may experience mild itchiness, redness, bruising, or tenderness at the injection site. These side effects usually resolve within a week. There is little to no downtime associated with Belotero treatments, with most patients able to return to their daily activities right away. However, patients should avoid alcoholic beverages and extensive sun exposure for 24 hours after treatment.
