Belotero is a line of injectable dermal filler treatments that have a hyaluronic acid base. These fillers are a popular option for helping reduce the appearance of fine lines and folds in the skin. There are different products in the Belotero line that have different consistencies, allowing for a wide range of potential applications.
Most Belotero injections are done in the face including the cheeks, nose, eyes, chin, and lips. The process is fairly easy and painless and is typically done in less than an hour. Plus, there’s very little recovery time, so Belotero is a great option for anyone who doesn’t have downtime for an extended recovery period.
The results of a Belotero injection are visible almost immediately and offer a smoother and more youthful appearance of the area targeted. In choosing a Belotero treatment, you can benefit from the following results:
- Fill in the lines around your eyes
- Reduce under-eye bags
- Fill in wrinkles and lines on your forehead
- Plump your lips
- Contour your cheeks or jawline
- Correct small bumps on your nose
- It may help treat certain types of acne
Depending on the product used and the amount injected, you can expect your Belotero injection results to last anywhere from six to 18 months. Before you receive your injection, you will want to avoid aspirin for the three days leading up to the appointment. On the day of your appointment, avoid aspirin and Motrin.
Overall, Belotero is considered a safe injection treatment, though you may experience some mild side effects for the first week, including swelling, redness, tenderness, or bruising where you received the injection.
After your Belotero injection, you can resume your typical routine with a couple of exceptions. We recommend avoiding extreme physical activity, prolonged heat or sun exposure, alcoholic beverages, and facials or chemical peels for the first 24 hours after your treatment.
