Belotero for certain facial areas

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}
Belotero is the thinnest filler on the market and changes with large amounts of pressure very easily.  As a result, thin areas not subject to significant pressures do well with Belotero.  Lines around the lips, crow's feet, forehead lines, lines between the brows, scars, sleep lines around the chin or cheeks all do very well with Belotero.  Filling shadows in areas of thin skin, such as in the tear trough, also serves Belotero well. 

Belotero is not ideal for cheek, chin, nose, or jaw augmentation nor is it a cost effective filler for filling nasolabial folds or marionetter lines.

Areas for Belotero Injections

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

Any of the HA fillers are used to injected in all areas of the face.  Most areas of injection are "off-label" but are in common use.  I have found Belotero to be an excellent filler for the fine lines and wrinkles around the mount and the upper lip.  I prefer Juvederm Ultra XC or Restylane for under the eyes.  Juvederm Ultra XC for lips, Juvederm Ultra Plus XC or Radiesse for the cheeks and jawline.


Good Luck.

How best to use the new filler Belotero?

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

Belotero is a relatively new, and much anticipated, hyaluronic acid (HA) filler. All the hyaluronic acid fillers are slightly different from each other, and therefore allow physicians to match the best filler to the problem. Belotero blends very well into the skin is best for:

  • creased skin and etched-in lines, like the smile creases
  • under eye area where the skin is very thin
  • etched lines that radiate from the lips
  • any place where superficial placement is needed and the other  HA fillers may be visible through the skin

Like other dermal fillers, Belotero can be used around the mouth in the nasolabial folds and marionette lines, in the cheeks, and the tear troughs.  It is particularly useful in superficial lines in the lips and the area between the eyebrows called the glabella.

Fine facial lines, lower lid hollows, and thin lips

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

Belotero is a very fine and soft filler used most often to correct fine, etched-in facial and neck lines left after Botox treatment, such as around the eyes and mouth.  It also fills in delicate hollows under the eyes and serves to define the border of the lips (white roll). It can create artistically fuller beautifully proportioned lips.. 

Its fine nature is used most frequently in my practice for lip enhancement for patients who need to look their best now.  Belotero is for the patient who wants no down time and insists on natural looking healthy fuller lips,  Belotero permits you to have the best version of your lips now.  Belotero allows gentle lip plumping and high definition lip contouring. All the while, its soft nature permits natural nuance of movement and expression. In talented hands, Belotero lips are instantly fuller and feel natural to touch. One does not hear complaints of lumps in the lips with Belotero.

Where to Inject Belotero

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}
Belotero works very well on facial lines and wrinkling, as it adds volume to areas where volume has been lost to even the skin. Such areas that are commonly treated include the forehead, between the brows, above the top lip, and the nasolabial folds, or smile lines.

Belotero is an excellent filler and can be used for thinner areas of skin, like the eyelid skin and crows feet. Belotero can also be useful for acne scars.

How/Where is Belotero Used?

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

Hi anon.  We are currently using Belotero in a couple very specific areas.  Although it can be used in many of the same areas as Restylane and Juvederm, we have found it to be particularly useful on the upper lip and the lower crow's feet  area (onto the cheek).  The smoker's lines can be challenging but Belotero can be injected very superficially and works almost like caulking for these fine lines.  Same for the area on the cheekbones that  is below the crow's feet.

What areas can Belotero be used to treat?

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

Belotero is an HA product which makes it easy to use anywhere you would use Restylane or Juvederm, But because is it very soft it doesn't create much "lift".  So It depends on what your trying to achieve. It is not the best for volume, but it is ideal for superficial fine lines or under thin skin such as in tear troughs.

What areas can be treated with Belotero?

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

Although there may be some distinction between FDA-approved areas and off-label areas, Belotero could be used in any of the same places that the other hyaluronic fillers (Restylane, Juvederm) are used.  I would say the most commonly treated areas with Belotero would be lips, under eyes, and any superficial lines on the face.
