What is Belotero®?
As people age, their tissues can begin to lose elasticity and shape. This can eventually make the face look unhappy or angry, betraying how good someone may feel inside. On top of the natural increase in laxity, issues like stress, chemical exposure, weight fluctuations, and genetics can compound these wrinkles. While there are lots of over the counter products that claim to eliminate facial lines, none can actually make much difference. However, dermal fillers are a family of injectables designed to restore a youthful, lifted, taut look in just minutes. MedSpa CA has the newest filler on the market, Belotero, in our arsenal; we are ready to help patients win the war against wrinkles.
New to the world of dermal fillers, Belotero can significantly improve the appearance by eliminated fine lines around the mouth and eyes. Comprised of Hyaluronic Acid (HA), Belotero will plump the existing tissues to even out facial creases. The filler will also replace lost volume under the eyes and along the cheeks. The shape and contours of healthy features can be restored after one treatment. While the benefits of Belotero are seen right away, as the body’s collagen supply is grows, the results will continue to improve.
Belotero can significantly improve:
The Ideal Candidate for Belotero
Anyone who is experiencing fine lines around the mouth or eyes, as well as hollow areas underneath the eyes and a loss of volume along the cheeks, can benefit from Belotero. The injectable is safe for all skin types and ethnicities. Patients in good health, who understand treatment with dermal fillers, and hold reasonable expectations for their results, can make an excellent candidate for treatment with Belotero. Patient with an active skin condition, such as pimples, rash, cysts, cold sores, and hives, should postpone their Belotero treatment until it has completely cleared.
The Belotero Consultation
Before scheduling a Belotero session, an initial consultation will be scheduled with one of the professionals at MedSpa CA. At this appointment, a brief exam of the skin and facial anatomy will be performed, and the patient’s medical history will be reviewed. The Belotero treatment process will be fully explained; the benefits and potential side effects will also be discussed. When Belotero is determined to be the right procedure for an individual patient, a unique treatment plan will be created.
A Belotero session will take less than 30 minutes in one of MedSpa CA’s luxurious patient rooms. Once the treatment area has been determined, the Belotero will be administered with a very small needle. The injections are not considered painful, although a topical or local anesthetic may be applied before treatment, to maximize patient comfort. No downtime is necessary after a Belotero treatment. That same afternoon, patients can return to work or school, as well as all other daily activities. Immediately after the injections, minor redness, swelling, and mild bruising may be seen throughout the treatment site.
