Why might an NYC dermatologist suggest Belotero as an anti-aging solution?
Very frequently, patients visit Dr. Ron Shelton's practice to learn about the various options available for a more youthful appearance. Many patients rule out the possibility of laser resurfacing procedures as they may be invasive, expensive, and require extensive recovery time. Surgery also comes with a myriad of risks to the health and wellbeing of patients. Therefore, patients are very excited to hear about the benefits that Belotero can provide as an alternative solution.
Belotero is hyaluronic acid dermal filler used to fill fine lines and wrinkles in the face. Currently, Dr. Shelton finds Belotero to work the best of any filler in smoothening out the vertical upper lip “smoker” lines and for some of the forehead creases that can't be treated by Botox. This ingredient is naturally occurring in the body, and binds with water to provide a more youthful appearance in the treatment area. Over time, the filler will absorb into the body. The results can last several months, and patients are encouraged to visit their dermatologist's office for maintenance injections to enjoy the long-term benefits Belotero can provide.
Belotero is completely safe. It has been FDA approved for the reduction of moderate to severe nasolabial folds, and has been used off-label by dermatologists for a number of other areas of the face. Dr. Shelton will explain the best places to use Belotero injections for optimum results.
Patients who want neurotoxin and collagen stimulator treatments to rejuvenate their appearance can receive these injections in combination with Belotero for even more dramatic results. These injectables are FDA approved for specific indications, and when used together, and provide patients with an amazing rejuvenation, that at times can appear similar to laser results. All these cosmetic treatments can work together to turn back the hands of time, and offer patients a way to age gracefully!
