Belotero - Injectable Facial Fillers - New Orleans, LA

41 Procedures ( View All )

Overview

Our New Orleans plastic surgeons offer Belotero, a hyaluronic derma filler injection that adds shape, lift, volume, and softness to the skin. Due to its special formulation, our New Orleans plastic surgeons prefer this injection for certain patients where moderate to severe wrinkles exist in the lips, smile lines, and forehead. It is a great filler choice for patients who seek long-term, immediate wrinkle correction, and with one treatment patients will instantly notice a more youthful appearance.  

Administering Belotero

Belotero is administered during an in-office appointment that typically takes about 15-30 minutes. The injection treatment, including the dosage, specific formulation, and injection location, is tailored during the procedure to fulfill the patient’s specific needs. The injection is given through a syringe to localized areas on the face. Patients will feel a small prick as the needle inserts through the skin, but any pain or discomfort can be controlled with a topical anesthetic.

What to Expect

Immediately following a Belotero injection, mild swelling and redness at the injection site are usual. This will subside a few hours after the procedure. Patients can resume their normal activities immediately, but exercise should be avoided for a few hours. Results following the injection will become apparent immediately and usually last between 6-12 months. After the surgery, skin will appear younger and restored.

Belotero® FAQs

How Does it Compare?

There are many reputable fillers on the market today, each with their set of benefits.  While several filler products comprised of hyaluronic acid exist, Belotero works a bit differently to interact with the mid-to-deep dermis for correction of moderate-to-severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the nasolabial folds (laugh lines). The differences between the hyaluronic fillers can be discussed during the initial consultation. 

Is it Safe?

Yes. Belotero is an FDA procedure that has undergone extensive tests to validate its efficacy and safety. 

Botox or Filler?

Belotero, as well as many other injectable fillers, offer a similar result as what may be achieved through BOTOX, but the approach is different.  Injectable fillers help to decrease wrinkles by adding volume to certain facial structures that look deflated due to aging or weight loss. By adding volume, the skin’s surface appears fuller and smoother. BOTOX temporarily freezes the underlying facial muscles, allowing them to relax which causes the skin’s surface to appear softer and smoother.  A skilled practitioner will be able to determine which procedure would garner the best results.

Long Lasting?

Belotero results typically appear immediately and last for an average of 6-12 months.
