Belotero is a dermal filler that is used to fill in lines and folds in the face. It is a hyaluronic acid filler just like Juvederm, Restylane and Perlane.
Hyaluronic acid is what we have naturally in our bodies that will plump up the face to give us volume by having water bind to it. It keeps the skin hydrated and will plump it up to give you that volume you’ve lost, as hyaluronic acid breaks down as we age.
The reason Belotero is different and sometimes a better option for our patients is because we can add it more superficially. It’s the first product we’ve had since collagen that will fill in those little fine lines, especially on the side of the face or above the lip (smoker lines).
