What is Belotero and how is it used by New York City patients?

When fine lines and wrinkles appear on the face, many patients are unaware of the methods that can be used to correct these imperfections. Moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds do not always require plastic surgery. Instead, patients can undergo injectables at their New York City dermatologist. Belotero is a wonderful option for many patients.

Belotero is dermal filler is used for superficial lines on the face, such as those above the upper lip. It can be used with other fillers such as Juvéderm and Restylane to provide amazing results. It has also been shown to be effective in reducing the depth of acne scars.

Belotero is an injectable made of hyaluronic acid, and is a wonderful alternative to collagen injections. Collagen injections had a high rate of allergic reaction in patients, and testing was needed beforehand to ensure safety. However, since hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that already occurs in the body, it has no risk of allergic reaction. Patients can safely enjoy the benefits of Belotero.

Patients need to understand that Belotero and other dermal fillers are temporary. To maintain the results, they are encouraged to schedule periodic appointments for injections. Depending on the area of the face being treated and the way in which the body dissolves the hyaluronic acid, injections of Belotero can last anywhere from a few months to a year before reinjection is necessary.
