Dr. Victor uses multiple fillers based on the type of skin you have and the area to be treated. Belotero is the latest dermal filler on the market available today. It has a unique ability to integrate with the tissues of your skin, providing volume and a more youthful shape to your face. Belotero can reduce lines and wrinkles while enhancing your own facial contours. Dr. Victor will sometimes use this filler for very fine lines around the mouth and eyes depending on your skin type and the expectations you have.
As we get older, our skin’s production of the substances that keep it moisturized and supple begins to slow, resulting in an increase in wrinkles and lines. But Belotero is a dermal filler that incorporates one of these natural substances, hyaluronic acid (HA), to help you achieve smoother, more youthful looking skin once again.
In clinical studies of Belotero, 97 percent of patients showed a visible improvement after a single treatment. Belotero can eliminate even the finest of lines. Belotero injections plump the skin subtly and evenly so patients appear relaxed and refreshed without looking like they have a noticeable implant.
There are different formulations of Belotero available, making it ideal to improve a wide variety of skin issues. Dr. Victor has been known to use this filler to treat frown lines between the eyebrows, periorbital lines (crow’s feet), nasolabial folds from the nose to the corners of the mouth, perioral lines and marionette lines from the corners of the mouth to the jaw, but generally uses it to treat the finer lines and wrinkles. In addition, it can round the cheekbones, plump the lips, restore softness to the hands and décolletage and more.
The quick and nearly painless procedure typically takes 20 minutes and most people can return to work immediately afterward. The results of Belotero treatment are not permanent and vary by individual. For most patients, the effects are still visible six months after an injection. Follow-up treatments are typically done every six to 6 months.
