Can wrinkle treatment be done with Belotero in NYC?
Patients who want to look better, feel better, and re-experience their youthfulness are encouraged to ask Dr. Shelton about the benefits that Belotero wrinkle treatment can provide. NYC dermatologists utilize Belotero, high quality dermal filler, to reduce the signs of aging on the face.
Belotero is made from hyaluronic acid and is used to volumize folds and wrinkles. It is FDA-approved for treatment of moderate to severe nasolabial folds, which are the deep lines that can appear around the mouth and up to the nostrils. However, it can be used off-label for other areas of the face and body. Dr. Shelton uses Belotero to reduce photoaging and help patients feel better about their appearance.
Belotero is injected into treatment areas during a quick and simple appointment at Dr Shelton's practice in NYC. First, Dr. Shelton consults with the patient to discuss the concerns they have about their aging appearance. He can then suggest the best course of treatment to address these problematic areas. For many, dermal fillers such as Belotero will be helpful. The administration of Belotero requires that a small amount of the gel be injected underneath the skin. Common side effects of Belotero include swelling, redness, and bruising of the area, but this is typically short-term. The treatment itself does not require any downtime, and patients are able to go about the rest of their day immediately after treatment.
A great advantage of Belotero is that Dr. Shelton can use the filler very superficially to smoothen the finely etched vertical lines of the upper lip (off-label). These lines bother many people and women complain that their lipstick “bleeds” up into these lines. Dermabrasion and laser resurfacing can help smoothen the wrinkles but as they are related to not only sundamage and smoking, but to the movement of the underlying muscle when we purse our lips, the lines come back to some extent even after these major procedures. Furthermore, many patients do not want to undergo a procedure that has significant downtime such as laser resurfacing or dermabrasion. Belotero may last in the upper lip six months or more and the bruising that occurs is short-lived.
Dr. Shelton is a highly qualified and experienced injector of Belotero. He is a board certified dermatologist and offers a wide variety of dermatological services through his practice. He is committed to helping patients renew their appearance and enjoy a higher quality of life with a more beautiful look. Both men and women can benefit from dermal fillers such as Belotero, and should not be afraid to learn more about this wonderful treatment!
