What is Belotero?

Belotero is a dermal filler that is introduced to the skin by injecting the solution directly to the problem area. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Christopher Khorsandi in Las Vegas, NV uses this dermal filler patients who desire improvement in the wrinkles around the nasolabial folds, smile lines or forehead wrinkles. Because of Belotero’s versatility, this injectable filler can be used for almost all patients, whether they have beginning wrinkles or deeper creases, as long as the patient has a relatively good skin tone. It is made from hyaluronic acid, a substance that is a hydrator by nature, which is naturally found in the body. Belotero reinstates this substance in the body, and promotes skin hydration.

  • Maintaining normal facial movements and expressions
  • Achieving results that look and feel natural
  • Treatments are quick
  • Little to no downtime
  • FDA-approved

Administering Belotero

Belotero is often a single-session treatment that lasts up to 30 minutes, sometimes even less. Patients may experience pain is similar to any other injection treatments. A topical anesthetic may be applied to minimize discomfort during the session. The amount of medication, formulation and injection spot vary considering each patient’s circumstances. The entire process is repeated every 6 to 12 months as the formulation is naturally absorbed by the body.

After Your Injections

Since this is a non-invasive treatment, patients will be able to go back to their normal routine shortly after the injection. Some swelling and redness may be present, but these usually subside after a few hours. Strenuous activities must be avoided for at least 1 day. The results are evident immediately, and can last from 6 months to 1 year. Generally, the skin treated will appear smooth with a rejuvenated glow that makes facial features look young and fresh.

Expected Cost

Each syringe can cost between $400 and $600, and a single treatment may use more than 1 syringe depending on the severity of the case. Sometimes more than one treatment is necessary. During the initial consultation, the doctor will analyze the patient’s cosmetic concerns that Belotero can correct. The amount of medication, formulation and number of treatments are factors that account for the total cost of the procedure. Third-party financing may be a good option since insurance companies rarely cover cosmetic treatments.

Belotero  FAQs

Other Products?

There are a number of available injectable fillers that are hyaluronic based in the market today. However, Belotero is best known for its function to correct severe wrinkles commonly found around the nasiolabial folds. Other fillers will be discussed during the initial consultation with the doctor to highlight the advantages of each, and the best approach to the patient’s facial features and cosmetic concerns.

How Safe?

Belotero is hyaluronic-acid-based filler that is FDA approved. It is backed with years of extensive testing for its function and safety. Since hyaluronic acid is a substance processed naturally in the body, it is a solution that integrates well with the underlying tissues, and provides great results in terms of adding volume and promoting skin hydration.

BOTOX or Belotero?

BOTOX works in a way that once injected, the skin will appear smoother and softer because the solution is a muscle relaxant. It freezes the muscles beneath the skin where it was injected. However, it doesn’t add any volume to the area. Belotero, like other injectable dermal fillers, can provide the same results as BOTOX, but works in a way that it adds more volume so that it stretches the skin to make it appear more youthful and smoother with wrinkles becoming less evident.

Do I Need Reinjection?

In most cases, yes. Since Belotero is made of hyaluronic acid, a substance that occurs naturally within the body, the injected solution normally gets absorbed. It is recommended to maintain injections every 6 months to 1 year to supplement the loss of volume. Some patients initially opt for dermal fillers to see if cosmetic enhancements will look and feel before proceeding with more permanent and invasive procedures such as face lifts.
