Turn back time with belotero
Try as we might, we have yet to figure out how to stop aging. As years go by, your skin tissue loses elasticity, and all of your expressions – from smiles to frowns – leave permanent lines and wrinkles on your face. Though we can’t turn back time, Belotero can make it look like you did. Belotero Balance Dermal Filler is specially designed to integrate into your skin and mold to your unique facial contours, leaving you looking years younger.
What can it do for you?
Belotero Balance is a new dermal filler from Merz Aesthetics, the makers of Radiesse. Made of hyaluronic acid (HA), a natural component of your skin, it adapts to your skin in a way that no other dermal filler has before – giving you smooth, natural-appearing results that can’t be matched. Belotero binds to water, allowing it to fill in wrinkles and folds, providing immediate correction of treatment areas. The adaptable nature of the filler allows a versatility that makes Belotero effective on deep treatment areas such as smile lines, as well as more delicate lines such as vertical lip lines.
Am I a good candidate for belotero?
The ideal Belotero candidate may be anyone wanting to enhance their appearance by eliminating unwanted smile lines, vertical lip lines, lines on the corners of the mouth, and marionette lines (lines that run downward from the corners of your mouth, giving a frowning appearance.) Patients seeking Belotero should be in good physical and mental health, and have realistic expectations. Ideal candidates should not be pregnant or nursing, or have a neuromuscular disorder.
In order to set realistic expectations, you are encouraged to schedule a consultation with Dr. Fiorillo prior to making an appointment.
How is the procedure performed?
Dr. Fiorillo will inject the filler into the target treatment areas using a fine gauge needle. You may experience brief and mild discomfort as with any needle injection. There is no anesthesia or recovery time necessary – the procedure is so simple and quick, it can be performed over your lunch break!
What is the recovery from belotero like?
Some patients may experience mild bruising, swelling, itching, redness, or irritation, as with any needle injection. Any discomfort will resolve itself. Results will be visible immediately after the injection, leaving your skin looking fuller and smooth.
What are the potential risks of belotero?
Belotero is FDA approved and has been clinically tested to ensure safety. Other than mild bruising and irritation at the injection site, there are no significant risks of a Belotero injection.
