We see patients from Cooper City as well as areas such as Miramar, Pembroke Pines, Davie, Plantation, Hollywood, Sunrise, North Miami, Miami Lakes, Weston & SW Ranches.

What is Belotero?

Belotero is a new dermal filler in the U.S. made of non-animal hyaluronic acid. It is known as “the smoother solution” and unlike other Hyaluronic fillers like Juvederm & Radiesse, Belotero can be used superficially for fine lines in and around the face. Belotero can effectively treat many types of wrinkles such as:

  • Forehead lines
  • Crows feet
  • Horizontal neck creases
  • Under-eye wrinkles and depressions
  • Smile and laugh lines

The unique characteristics of Belotero enable it to address fine lines. Because it is quite thin and light, it can be injected superficially without the risk of lumpiness appearing on the skin’s surface. Often, patients would still see lines etched on their skin after Botox & Dysport. With the help of Belotero, we can use Botox & Dysport in moderate amounts to relax facial muscles, allowing patients to retain their natural facial mobility and expressions. Belotero can then treat any fine lines remaining after the procedure. Belotero can be injected to provide substantial improvement for horizontal neck creases, depending on how deep the creases are.

What Is Hyaluronic Acid?

Hyaluronic acid is a natural sugar that is mostly found in the connective tissue of our bodies. It is also a natural moisturizer in our skin. As we age, hyaluronic acid supplies diminish.

Because of its ability to add volume and hydrate the skin, lab-derived versions of this compound are used as dermal fillers. These include Juvederm and Restylane which can be used to fill wrinkles and help replenish volume loss in the face.

How Is Belotero Different From Juvederm and Restylane?

Belotero, Juvederm, and Restylane are all different forms of hyaluronic acid that differ in how the molecules are cross-linked. This affects their individual properties and how the dermal filler will behave within the skin.

Belotero is thinner and more lightweight compared to other HA fillers. It is created using a unique proprietary technology called Cohesive Polydensified Matrix. This requires the use of a process that gives the final injection solution a very high degree of elasticity. So once it is injected, it distributes much more evenly and seamlessly between treated and untreated areas.  Other hyaluronic acid fillers can raise the dermal layer and clump under the skin.

Additionally, Belotero can be injected more superficially (i.e. closer to the skin’s surface) compared to other HA fillers. Deeper injections of other forms of hyaluronic acid require a higher quantity of the product and entail some risk of bumps and lines appearing on the skin.

What Types Of Wrinkles Can Be Treated With Belotero?

Belotero can effectively treat many types of wrinkles such as:

  1. Forehead lines
  2. Crows feet
  3. Horizontal neck creases
  4. Under-eye wrinkles and depressions
  5. Smile and laugh lines

The unique characteristics of Belotero enable it to address fine lines. Because it is quite thin and light, it can be injected superficially without the risk of lumpiness appearing on the skin’s surface. Often, patients would still see lines etched on their skin after Botox & Dysport.   With the help of Belotero, we can use Botox & Dysport in moderate amounts to relax facial muscles, allowing patients to retain their natural facial mobility and expressions. Belotero can then treat any fine lines remaining after the procedure. Belotero can also be used for under-eye depressions and wrinkles.

Also prior to the advent of Belotero, cosmetic solutions for horizontal neck creases were very limited.  However, Belotero can be injected to provide substantial improvement for this issue, depending on how deep the creases are.

Belotero Results & Recovery

Belotero injections can incur typical side effects associated with dermal fillers:

  • Redness
  • Swelling
  • Itching
  • Tenderness

These side effects usually go away within a few days but can take up to a week. There is no true downtime from Belotero. Belotero results in smoother, rejuvenated skin and usually lasts between 6-12 months.
