If you are tired of your facial wrinkles, Belotero may be your ideal solution. Facial lines are caused by the lack of support from proteins like elastin and collagen. As we age, our bodies produce less and less collagen. The skin begins to hang away from its underlying muscles and soft tissue.
When the gaps beneath the skin’s surface emerge and grow, a person’s complexion can become deflated. The dynamic is like a balloon that slowly loses its air. The texture of the balloon looks puckered and lifeless until you put more air into it. The same is true with skin. Dermal fillers, as their name suggests, literally fill the gaps beneath the surface, plumping the skin from within.
Take, for example, the nasolabial folds. The creases that run from the edge of the nose down to the corners of the mouth are often called “laugh lines” due to how pronounced they appear when we smile or laugh. Belotero can prop up the scaffolding beneath nasolabial folds, smoothing them out comprehensively.
Belotero is a popular dermal filler that delivers natural-looking rejuvenation. The main ingredient in Belotero is a hyaluronic acid (HA) gel. Hyaluronic acid is a substance found naturally in the skin, which makes Belotero safe and effective. It can be used to treat moderate to severe facial lines and wrinkles. Belotero diffuses brilliantly; it adapts to finite creases such as the vertical lines that form above the lip. By binding to water, the properties of this unique filler allow it to cradle moisture and hydrate the skin. Belotero integrates flawlessly with your tissue to plump and fill both deeper facial folds and fine lines. The gel produces a soft and even correction throughout the treatment area.
Benefits of Dermal Fillers
The main benefit of Belotero is how it conforms to the dimensions of your skin. The silky texture finds its way to hollow spots and creases organically and seamlessly. Your skin can enjoy its natural luster thanks to a boost from Belotero.
Speaking of boosts, your confidence can also benefit from dermal filler treatment. You don’t need to feel self-conscious or insecure when you know that your skin is fulfilled and replenished. Belotero provides added volume to lips, cheeks, the chin, and the areas around the eyes. You will feel whole again, courtesy of Dr. Glatt and his mastery of dermal fillers.
Benefits of Belotero
- Easily tolerated; you can resume your normal activities immediately after the injection(s)
- No anesthesia necessary, no incisions required
- Hydrates the treatment area
- Stimulates collagen production for long-lasting results

The Belotero process is so straightforward, you may be ready for your first session immediately following your consultation. In general, you should refrain from smoking or drinking alcohol in the days leading up to a dermal filler treatment. Belotero provides hydration to the skin, while tobacco products and excessive drinking deplete its moisture. Leaching the skin’s hydration would be counterproductive to the dermal filler process.
Belotero Injection Procedure
Safety and satisfaction are two of Dr. Glatt’s guiding principles. Most Belotero products contain lidocaine, which helps anesthetize the treatment area. If you are concerned about discomfort, please alert Dr. Glatt before the dermal filler procedure begins.
The sheer versatility of Belotero allows for a range of treatment strategies. The amount of the solution required depends on the extent of the lines being filled and the area(s) of the face that need attention. According to a five-year study of over 300 Belotero recipients, doses ranged from just 0.2 mL to 3.0 mL. The precise brand of Belotero and the corresponding amount required will depend on your unique aesthetic goals.
The most popular Belotero product is called Belotero Balance. Its results endure for approximately 6 months, smoothing away facial lines and enhancing lips.
To extend the benefits of your dermal filler, consider a Belotero Soft treatment. Wrinkles and creases may be reduced for 12 months or more.
To address prominent facial lines, inquire about Belotero Intense. This solution can also erase imperfections around the mouth for approximately one year.
The cheeks require a more viscous formula, which is why Belotero Volume is ideal for midface enhancements. Clients also enjoy relief from crow’s feet for up to 18 months following a Belotero Volume injection session.

Complementary and Alternative Procedures
Dermal fillers like Belotero are wonderfully effective when it comes to adding volume to deflated skin, but wrinkles have more than one root cause. Every time you express an emotion, your facial muscles contract and pull at the skin. Over time, the creases associated with these muscular contractions deepen. To ease the repetitive movement of bothersome facial muscles, a neuromodulator can help. Botox, Jeuveau, and Dysport offer a varied array of solutions to your facial lines.
Neuromodulators can be safely administered in conjunction with dermal fillers. For information about Belotero, Radiesse, Restylane, Sculptra, or Juvéderm, contact Premier Plastic Surgery Center of New Jersey today. Dr. Brian Glatt will evaluate your skin and recommend the best treatment for your individual needs.
The cost of Belotero injections depends on how many units of the product you request. Dr. Glatt will provide transparent pricing as part of his comprehensive consultation process. He is also proud to be a member of Allergan’s Brilliant Distinctions program: every treatment you receive could earn you credit toward future visits. Call (973) 889-9300 to learn more.
