There is nothing worse than the vertical lines extending from the nose down to the chin to make you look old, tired, and angry. Belotero® can be used on men and women to add volume to the face and restore a pleasant, younger-looking appearance.
What is Belotero?
Belotero® is a dermal filler FDA approved for diminishing wrinkles, folds, and creases around the nose and mouth that develop and become more prominent with age. It increases the volume in these areas that tend to sag and look deflated by boosting the amount of hyaluronic acid in the body. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in the body that is responsible for helping the skin maintain its elasticity by binding water to the skin.
Belotero® is also effective at increasing volume in these areas:
- Periorbital lines or “crow’s feet”
- Bridge of the nose
- Nasolabial folds between the nose and mouth
- Perioral lines along the mouth
- Vermillion border of the lips
- Marionette lines
- Back of the hands and décolletage
Belotero® is very easy to use in smaller areas making it an excellent option for those with thin or delicate skin. It also offers the following benefits:
- Does not affect facial muscles, so expressions remain natural
- Long lasting
- Very slight risk of adverse reaction
- No downtime or recovery
- Results are immediate and improve over time
- Little to no discomfort or pain during treatment
What To Expect After
Immediately following Belotero injections, you may return to work or your normal schedule. You may want to avoid strenuous activities for the first 24 hours to alleviate any additional swelling or redness at the injection site.
