With a hyaluronic acid base, Belotero is an injectable dermal filler used to gently plump the skin, particularly the cheeks and nasolabial folds (laugh lines). When injected, the hyaluronic acid binds with water that is already in the skin, while fine lines and wrinkles are filled in. Remarkably, Belotero now has varying products with different consistencies, which helps personalize treatment for different types of lines. With results that appear quickly and last up to 18 months, patients in Marietta and West Cobb can now experience the balance and beauty of Belotero at the Med Spa of William R. Kincer.
As with other anti-aging dermal fillers, there’s no preparation before treatment using Belotero, yet a patient must provide his or her medical history, along with allergies to medications or topical agents. Once a patient arrives for their appointment, treatment areas are carefully marked, and the area is thoroughly cleaned with an antiseptic solution. Though most Belotero products contain a form of local anesthesia (Lidocaine), patients should notify their physician if they are concerned about pain. In this case, a numbing cream may be applied to the treatment area.
Belotero is injected using a fine-gauge needle syringe, while the area is gently massaged following the injection. This mechanism encourages the gel-like filler to spread out, creating a natural, more appealing appearance. It also allows for lines and wrinkles to be filled evenly and naturally. Depending on the number of areas being treated, treatment with Belotero may take 15 minutes to an hour.
Though Belotero is widely used to add volume to the cheeks and fill in the lines extending from the nose to the mouth, Healthline explains that Belotero can also be used to perform the following:
- Fill in lines around the eyes, nose and mouth
- Correct under-eye bags
- Fill forehead wrinkles
- Contour cheeks and jawline
- Plump the lips
- Fill in some types of acne scars
- Correct small nose bumps
