Introducing Belotero®: Our Newest Filler
Third time’s a charm! Belotero is a new dermal filler that has recently been approved by the Food and Drug Administration- making it the 3rd FDA-approved hyaluronic acid filler in the United States. Our Indiana plastic surgery practice is happy to offer another great filler option to our patients, and we feel this volumizing product provides many benefits.
What makes Belotero different?
Belotero is unique because it is made of a soft, elastic gel that integrates easily into the skin. The improved product texture and smoothness means that it feels less noticeable under the skin and also creates very natural-looking results.
Where can Belotero be used?
Belotero is most effective for superficial facial lines, especially those around the mouth. However, Belotero can also be used to enhance the lips, soften forehead lines, and rejuvenate the hands.
Are there any side effects?
Side effects are similar to that of other facial fillers and may include some swelling or redness at the injection site. You may experience a slight bruise, but this can be easily covered with makeup. There’s no downtime necessary so you can get back to your routine immediately.
How soon will I see results?
You will see improvements right after treatment. After swelling subsides, usually within a few days, the full results will be visible. Studies of Belotero have shown that 1 treatment can provide improvements for 9 months. Dr. Galante usually recommends repeat treatments after 6 to 12 months.
