As you grow older, your skin loses its natural hyaluronic acid, collagen, and elastin reserves. These components are essential for your skin’s youthful appearance. Facial fillers, including Belotero, can help restore facial smoothness and volume.

What is Belotero?

Belotero is a hyaluronic acid filler that restores your skin’s natural hyaluronic acid reserves. The gradual loss of hyaluronic acid makes your facial skin look tired and gaunt, making the fine lines and wrinkles appear more prominently. Belotero is a thin facial filler. Dr Vial uses it exclusively for tear trough imperfections and fine lines recalcitrant to Botox.

Who is a candidate for Belotero?

In general, candidates for Belotero:

  • Are over 21 years old
  • Do not have a history of severe allergies

How long do Belotero results last?

Belotero provides instant results. Your skin will look smooth and voluminous, and the fine lines and wrinkles will appear softer. The results last for 8-12 months. Injections can be repeated to maintain results.

How is Belotero performed?

Your Belotero treatment starts with a consultation with Dr. Vial. He will review your medical history, examine your facial tissues, and discuss your goals to create the ideal Belotero treatment plan. He individually curates all treatments to ensure optimal, safe, and subtle results.

During your treatment, your skin will be cleansed. Dr. Vial will mark the injection sites on your face. After that, Belotero will be injected into the targeted facial tissues using ultrafine needles and cannulas. You may experience a mild pinch. The injections take minutes to complete.

What is the recovery
process after Belotero?

Belotero does not involve an extended recovery process. You can resume all your daily activities and work immediately, but you should avoid strenuous workouts for 24 hours. You should also keep your head elevated for a few hours and avoid any additional facial treatments for 24 hours.
