As we grow older, the signs of aging begin to accelerate. One of the most prominent signs of aging happens when people start to lose volume in their faces. This lack of volume has many negative effects on appearance. It makes people appear tired all the time, and it also makes wrinkles and lines around the mouth and eyes appear more prominent. There is a solution, however. With Belotero® injections from Dr. Papel, Dr. Kontis, or Dr. Brown, you can bring the volume back to your face. Belotero® injections will make you look younger and boost your self-esteem.
Belotero® is an injectable hyaluronic acid filler. When injected into the face, lines and wrinkles are instantly filled in. An added bonus is that hyaluronic acid has the ability to stimulate the body’s natural production of collagen. This means that people who undergo repeated injections of Belotero® will need less of it with each injection to maintain smooth, youthful-looking skin.
Belotero® reduces wrinkles, but there are many other facial fillers that will do this as well. However, one of the main benefits of Belotero® is that it has a very soft consistency. This makes it an ideal filler for the more delicate areas of the face. When patients need to get rid of their wrinkles around their eyes, lips and other sensitive areas, using Belotero® is a perfect choice. Some of the other benefits of Belotero® include:
- Filling in scars
- Diminishing the appearance of undereye bags and dark circles
- Giving the lips a subtle enhancement
If you have deep circles under your eyes (tear trough deformity), vertical lip lines, nasolabial folds (smile lines), wrinkles at the mouth’s corners, and marionette lines (those long lines that extend from the mouth’s corner to border the chin), then Belotero® may be right for you. Belotero® is a great solution for those who want to look younger but are not ready for a surgical procedure yet.
Belotero® comes in individual syringes. Numbing cream can be applied to the skin ahead of time to ensure a comfortable treatment process. In addition, Belotero® contains lidocaine to minimize any discomfort. Several small injections will then be made with a thin needle. The formula will be placed in the areas where increased volume is needed. The injection process is complete in about 15 minutes.
There is no required downtime after treatment with Belotero®. Patients can return to their regular daily activities but may experience some mild swelling and redness at the injection sites for a few hours. The results of Belotero® are instant for smoother, younger-looking skin right away. These results can last for 6-12 months before a touch-up session is needed.
You will have an initial consultation with either Dr. Papel, Dr. Kontis, or Dr. Brown. They will ask you about your medical history, allergies, and skin sensitivities. The doctor will ask what your goals are for the treatment, and you will be given a thorough explanation of the reasonable benefits of Belotero® injections.
Dr. Papel, Dr. Kontis, and Dr. Brown have performed many successful Belotero® treatments on patients from Baltimore, Washington D.C., Annapolis, and the surrounding areas of Maryland and would love a chance to discuss procedural options with you!
