Questions about Belotero
How Does It Compare?
There are many trustworthy fillers on the market today, each with their set of benefits. While several filler products made of hyaluronic acid exist, Belotero works differently. It interacts with the mid-to-deep dermis for correction of moderate-to-severe wrinkles and folds, such as laugh lines. The differences between the hyaluronic fillers can be discussed during the initial consultation.
Is It Safe?
Yes. Belotero is an FDA procedure that has undergone extensive tests to ensure its efficacy and safety.
BOTOX or Filler?
Belotero, as well as many other fillers, offer a similar result as what may be achieved through BOTOX, but the approach is different. Injectable fillers decrease wrinkles by adding volume to certain facial structures that look deflated due to aging or weight loss. Because they add volume, the skin’s surface appears fuller and smoother. BOTOX temporarily freezes the underlying facial muscles, allowing them to relax which causes the skin’s surface to look softer and smoother. A skilled surgeon will determine which would give the best results.
Belotero results normally appear immediately and last for an average of 6-12 months.
