What do I need to know?
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, lasting about 4-6 months.
Those wishing to fill moderate to more severe wrinkles should consider a more volumizing family of fillers, such as those made by Allergan, Galderma, or Suneva. Lasers, microneedling & other modalities can also be considered, and can be determined with the help of your practitioner.
WHAT DOES THE TREATMENT 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 DOES THE TREATMENT TAKE?
10 to 30 minutes
ARE THERE IMMEDIATE SIDE 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 (it is recommended to wait 24 hours before applying make-up). 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 our clinic & we will have your practitioner follow-up.
WHAT ARE MY ANTICIPATED RESULTS?
Everyone can experience different results. A dose in one man, or 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; usually peeking within a few weeks. The area of injection should instantly appear smoother and fuller, with more volume and definition than before receiving the treatment.
