If you suffer from fine lines, wrinkles, or bags under your eyes, acne scars, Belotero may be for you. Belotero is a dermal filler made primarily of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in our bodies that helps with hydration and skin volume and elasticity. Belotero can potentially take years off your face by smoothing out fine lines and eliminating under eye bags.
What Areas of the Face Can Be Treated With Belotero?
Belotero can be used on many parts of the face to give a smoother, fuller look. It generally works especially well for fine lines, superficial acne scars, lip lines and under eye circles. Fine lines around the lips can create a pinched look and add age. Belotero can smooth out those fine lines, resulting in an instantly more youthful look in the right candidate. Fine lines around the eyes are similarly telling of age, while under eye circles can make a person seem tired and stressed. Acne scars that are close to the skin’s surface can potentially be reduced with Belotero alone, while deeper acne scars may be treated with a combination of fillers and other office treatments. Belotero can provide a quick, effective way to instantly take years off a person’s face. Results vary depending on the individual.

How does Belotero Work?
Belotero is made primarily of hyaluronic acid. As we age, we lose our naturally occurring hyaluronic acid, which leads to loss of elasticity and volume. Belotero can restore that hyaluronic acid at targeted points in the skin, instantly helping to fill wrinkles and create a youthful, smooth appearance in the right individuals.
Belotero should be completely safe when performed by an experienced dermatologist such as Dr. Melda Isaac. The procedure takes very little time, and results can often be seen almost immediately following treatment, with full results usually appearing over the next week. Side effects should be limited to some potential redness, swelling, or bruising around the injection site, which usually disappear within just a few days and can be covered with makeup. If you experience any worse side effects, contact your doctor immediately.
Liquid Facelift with Belotero
Belotero is often used in conjunction with other dermal fillers such as Radiesse. In fact, it is a key component in what is called a “liquid facelift.” A liquid facelift uses a combination of different dermal fillers targeting different areas in order to better achieve a total rejuvenation effect. It is a popular option for people who perhaps don’t have the time to spare for a full facelift but would still like to rejuvenate their entire face as best they can.
