What is Belotero?
A new hyaluronic acid (HA) -based cohesive gel dermal filler specially formulated to rehydrate and volumize skin, Belotero reduces unwanted lines and wrinkles by imperceptibly integrating with your own tissue. At Johns Creek Dermatology, we utilize Belotero to remove frown lines, reduce crow’s feet, soften lines around your mouth, generate fuller lips, or hydrate dry skin on hands or décolletage It is uniquely formulated to be versatile enough to handle deep treatment areas such as nasolabial folds, the smile lines around the mouth, as well as more delicate areas such as vertical lip lines. Belotero is approved for the corners of the mouth and “marionette” lines, lines which run downward from the corner of the mouth. Since Belotero is designed to integrate with your dermal tissue, unlike other fillers which may produce an unnatural feeling in treated areas, it is unlikely that there is any perceptible difference in how the affected area feels at all.
When will I see results from Belotero?
You will see visible improvement to the treatment areas from using Belotero immediately after the procedure. Most patients can return to normal activities almost immediately, although it is possible you may experience some swelling, redness, or bruising at the injection site.
How long does Belotero last?
At Johns Creek Dermatology, a Belotero procedure by Dr. Timani typically takes twenty minutes. Treatments last approximately nine months. To maintain a youthful appearance, it is recommended that patients who use Belotero schedule follow up treatments after six to twelve months.
