Belotero Dermal Filler
Belotero is one of only 3 hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
It is approved to smooth moderate to severe wrinkles and folds. When injected into the dermis, Belotero evenly integrates with your own dermal tissues and discreetly enhances your facial contours for added confidence. Belotero re-hydrates for a radiant appearance.
Dr. Newman uses Belotero selectively for fine lines around the mouth and lips and for those patients who desire conservative enhancement of lip size.
As we age, our skin inevitably loses its youthful appearance as the production of natural dermal volumizers and moisturizers such as hyaluronic acid (HA) diminish, leaving lines and wrinkles where our skin was once youthful, even and radiant.
Belotero is an HA dermal filler, made of the same volumising and moisturizing component of your skin, so it is the natural choice for reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
When injected, it instantly plumps and adds volume to the areas where it has been lost. Even the finest lines can be treated with confidence with Belotero.
What makes Belotero unique according to Dr. Newman, is the concentration and cross-linking of the hyaluronic acid which allows it to integrate in the upper dermis of the skin without producing excess swelling.
Belotero is specially designed to integrate into your tissue to provide subtle and even results without disrupting the natural contours of your face, so you can be confident that no one will ever know how you manage to look so refreshed and confident. The Belotero secret can be your secret too.
In clinical studies 97% of patients showed a visible improvement after just one treatment with Belotero2.
If you have previously been treated with a dermal filler you will be surprised by the subtlety of the area treated with Belotero. Unlike other fillers, you are unlikely to feel the implant, but will certainly see the refreshing results.
Common Questions and Answers
What does FDA approval mean?
Belotero is one of only 3 HA fillers approved by the Food and Drug Administration of the United States (FDA) currently promoted in the UK. The FDA regulates the way that foods, drugs, medical devices, and other health products are produced and sold1. The FDA is one of the most stringent regulatory authorities worldwide. Due to the high standards required for a FDA approval, it informs you about the quality and safety of a product. The fact that Belotero has FDA approval demonstrates its safety and efficacy.
Is Belotero permanent?
No. Over time, the HA in Belotero degrades naturally as your own HA would, giving you the freedom to decide if you want further youthful rejuvenation treatment in the future.
How long does Belotero last?
The effect will depend on the individual and the area that has been treated. In clinical studies 66% of patients continued to show a visible improvement 9 months after a single treatment2. Most clients opt for follow-up treatments after 6 to 12 months to maintain a fresh, youthful appearance.
How long does the treatment take?
You will have an initial consultation to discuss your needs and your medical suitability for treatment should be discussed. The procedure usually takes around 20 minutes.
Does it hurt?
By design, Belotero helps to reduce any discomfort that may be experienced with dermal filler injections because it integrates into your own tissues where other fillers may disrupt the tissue when injected. Injected through a fine needle, Belotero can be positioned towards the surface of your skin with the confidence that the tissue integration will ensure a smooth evenness of your skin after treatment. Your practitioner may offer you a topical anaesthetic cream if your skin is particularly sensitive. This option should be discussed with your practitioner.
Will the treated area become hard or feel unusual?
Belotero integrates so readily into your own tissue that unlike other fillers, you are unlikely to feel the implant when you touch the treated area. This is especially important in areas like your lips, where you will want to see the results but not necessarily feel anything different.
How soon can I return to normal activities?
Some patients experience swelling or redness after injection which usually subsides soon after treatment. Some return to work immediately after treatment. As Belotero is applied by injection you may experience a slight bruise, but nothing that a little concealer can’t hide.
