Your skin may have been smooth and youthful when you were young because of natural resilience and an abundance of collagen and elastin stored in your body. When you get older, your skin loses elasticity and firmness as these begin to diminish, which causes noticeable signs of aging, like fine lines and wrinkles on the face. Belotero treatments are approved by the FDA to repair moderate to severe lines and wrinkles around the face, including etched lines around the mouth and the laugh lines that appear on the nasolabial folds. Belotero is a hyaluronic acid (HA) filler that helps you receive a softer, natural appearance.
"29 Y.o with Deep Eye Troughs. Henderson, NV - Amazing, Gentle, Professional, Expert on Anti Bruising Anti Swelling technique."- R. / RealSelf / Mar 01, 2016
"My visit to Look Younger MD with Dr. Lee is always a wonderful experience with fantastic results. I first walked into Dr. Lee's office about 5 years ago because I had sunken tear troughs which made me look tired all the time, despite the fact that on most days, I felt energized and not tired at all. I read many articles about fillers to treat the problem and after months of contemplating, I decided to go for it. On my initial consultation, Dr. Lee told me that he can definitely help me with my problem. Dr. Lee used Restylane to fill my tear troughs. Dr. Lee's bedside manner is excellent. He thoroughly explained the procedure to me and answered all of my questions and concerns. His kindness put me at ease while getting my filler. He is gentle, and explains every step along the way. My filler turned out beautifully and I no longer look the opposite of how I usually feel...energized! I owe it all to Dr. Lee's expertise. I return to Dr. Lee every couple of years for minor tear trough maintenance. On my recent visit, Dr. Lee introduced me to a new and better product to treat tear troughs, called Belotero. I am extremely happy with the product and appreciate that Dr. Lee stays on top of new products to help his patients If you have tear trough issues, I recommend Dr. Lee 100%!"- N.R. / Office Visit / Oct 23, 2018
Belotero Ideal Candidates
Belotero dermal filler treatments are helpful if you hope to correct the look of moderate to severe facial lines and wrinkles without opting for a surgical procedure. Dr. Lee uses Belotero off-label in the Tear Trough, just below the lower eyelid, to minimize the shadows which cause you to look tired and older. Before your treatment, Dr. Lee will meet with you during a consultation to discuss your current medications, known allergies, and medical history to determine if you are an ideal candidate for Belotero.
Belotero Procedure Technique
At the end of your consultation, you will be taken to our minor procedures area to receive your Belotero treatment. Belotero is injected via a fine-gauge needle so most patients do not require a topical or local anesthesia, but it can be requested during your consultation for greater comfort. The treatment sites will be cleaned and prepared before the treatment is administered in several, quick pre-determined injections. Dr. Lee will apply gentle pressure after each injection for a few minutes to stop any minor swelling and potential bruising, but then you are free to leave and resume your normal activities.
What to Expect with Belotero
After your Belotero treatment at Look Younger MD, you may have some mild bruising, swelling, and redness near the injection sites — this will fade naturally over the next week. You will notice some results right after your treatment that will continue to develop over the next two weeks.
Belotero Frequently Asked Questions
How much does it cost?
Dermal fillers will vary in cost, depending on how much filler is needed to attain the right results. During your consultation, we will be able to assess your facial appearance and create a custom treatment plan. From there, an estimate of your cost will be provided.
How does it work?
Fillers help add volume to the face and fill in line lines and wrinkles were volume has been lost. There are many reputable fillers on the market, each with their own unique set of benefits. Hyaluronic acid fillers are very popular and used by many individuals with great results. Belotero works a bit differently to interact with the mid to deep dermis for correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. Depending on your exact cosmetic needs, Belotero, as well as the other fillers we offer, can be discussed to see which one will provide the best benefit.
Is it safe?
Yes. The United States regulates the use of fillers so that patients can receive safe injections. Belotero is an FDA-approved treatment that has undergone research studies and tests to validate its efficacy and safety. It has been available for a number of years and is popular among both men and women.
Filler or BOTOX?
Both fillers and BOTOX work great to soften the facial appearance and diminish the look of fine lines and wrinkles. For men and women trying to avoid a surgical procedure, an injectable treatment may be an ideal solution. While both fillers and BOTOX work to diminish the appearance of wrinkles, they are different. Fillers add volume to the face to reduce lines while BOTOX temporarily freezes the underlying facial muscles for a smoother appearance. Many of our Las Vegas area patients use both in a combination approach for excellent facial rejuvenation.
