What do I need to
Belotero treatments show results on all skin types and skin colors, but are ideal for those seeking to smooth fine lines and folds, and plump areas with minor skin depression or fat loss.
Belotero offers subtle results, so those wishing to fill deep-set wrinkles should consider more vigorous treatments, such as Juvederm Ultra Plus or Perlane.
Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should not use dermal fillers.
Anyone who has recently used blood thinners or has a bleeding disorder should also avoid dermal fillers.
You should also be cautious if you’ve had previous bad allergic reactions that have required in-hospital treatment.
WHAT DOES THETREATMENT FEEL LIKE?
Belotero treatments are fast and relatively painless. Typically, a topical anesthetic is first applied to eliminate any discomfort. Once that takes effect, the dermal filler, a thin gel-like substance, is injected into the target area using a tiny, fine needle.
HOW LONG DOESIT TAKE?
10 to 30 minutes
ARE THERE IMMEDIATESIDE EFFECTS?
There is no downtime associated with Belotero treatments. Immediate visible side effects are minimal and may include temporary redness, tenderness, swelling, or bruising at the injection site, which can easily be concealed with makeup. In rare cases, small bumps may appear under the skin at the injection site. If they don’t dissipate within a week, check back in with your doctor.
WHAT ARE ANTICIPATEDRESULTS?
Everyone can experience different results. A dose in one woman can result in a dramatic change, while it may have a very minimal impact on someone else. The effects of Belotero should be immediately visible, with continuous correction as new collagen regenerates. The area of injection should instantly appear smoother and fuller, with more volume and definition than before receiving the treatment.
