Whatis Belotero?

At the Dermatology & Skin Cancer Surgery Center, Dr. Matthew Barrows and his team of medical professionals use Belotero Balance to produce smooth results for patient seeking a nonsurgical way to reduce wrinkles. Belotero Balance is a hyaluronic acid (HA) injectable filler that effectively integrates into the skin tissue. While some fillers are designed to rebuild facial volume and structure, Belotero Balance specifically treats moderate-to-severe etched-in lines and wrinkles such as vertical lip lines above and around the lips. Belotero is a smooth, flexible gel that blends into the natural structure of your skin.

Best Candidates

Belotero provides the best results for patients with moderate to severe lines and wrinkles, as well as those with hollowed areas on the face due to volume loss caused by aging or weight loss. This filler is especially useful for those with severe wrinkles between the nose and mouth, nasolabial folds, and aged skin around the corners of the mouth and above the lips. Individuals that have noticed a few stubborn lines above their lips that used to be hidden by makeup, or some small wrinkles starting to develop around the mouth are good candidates for this filler. Belotero Balance should not be used in patients with a history of or current severe allergies, including those with a history of anaphylaxis. In addition, Belotero Balance should not be used in patients with allergies to gram-positive bacterial proteins.

Administering Belotero

Belotero is a quick and simple procedure that is carried out in our dermatology office. Usually, an injection takes between 15 and 30 minutes, but is dependent upon the patient’s condition. The medical professional will determine the appropriate area or areas to treat prior to injection. Belotero will then be injected with a fine needle to minimize discomfort. Patients should consult with their doctor about options for topical anesthetics to further reduce pain.

What to Expect

During the administering of Belotero, a patient will feel a mild prick, but there shouldn't be any pain associated with the injectable. After treatment, there may be some redness and mild swelling in the injection area, but these side effects usually go away within a few hours. There is little to no downtime following the injection, so the majority of patients are able to return to their normal day-to-day activities. After receiving Belotero, most patients will notice an immediate difference in their appearance and can expect results to last 6 months or more.
