Over time and with age, the natural hyaluronic acid and other volumizers in the skin diminish and the face loses its youthful appearance. Wrinkles and lines may develop and volume may diminish. Belotero® is a unique injectable filler comprised of hyaluronic acid that can restore volume to the face and smooth lines and wrinkles for a more youthful and radiant look. Belotero® can also enhance the facial contours.
Belotero® is unique compared to other injectable fillers because it provides subtle improvement for natural, undetectable results. Unlike other fillers and implants, patients cannot feel the product yet they will look younger and refreshed. Once injected, Belotero® instantly adds volume and over time the product integrates with the patient’s own dermal tissues. Belotero® also rehydrates the skin for a more radiant glow.
Results with Belotero® are so subtle that no one will ever know you’ve had anything done yet you will still appear younger and more refreshed. A single treatment is typically all that is needed. Dr. Kyle S. Choe is a Virginia Beach Plastic Surgeon who specializes in cosmetic and reconstructive surgery of the face and neck. He has extensive experience in the use of injectable dermal fillers for rejuvenating the face.
What is Belotero®?
Belotero® is an injectable dermal filler comprised of hyaluronic acid that can be used to restore volume in the face, smooth lines and wrinkles, and enhance facial contours for a more youthful, radiant look.
Are the results of Belotero® permanent?
No, the results of Belotero® are not permanent. The hyaluronic acid in Belotero® degrades over time; however, results generally last six to twelve months.
How long does treatment with Belotero® take?
Virginia Beach plastic surgeon Dr. Choe performs Belotero® injections at the Choe Center for Facial Plastic Surgery. Treatment is quick and easy and takes just about twenty minutes to complete.
How much pain is associated with Belotero® injections?
There is generally little pain or discomfort associated with dermal filler injections and this is especially true with Belotero® because it is designed to integrate into your own tissue rather than disrupt the tissue. A very fine needle is used and a topical anesthetic cream may be applied prior to treatment to maximize the patient’s comfort.
What will the treatment area feeling like after injection?
The treatment area feels very natural after treatment with Belotero® because the product so readily integrates into the patient’s own tissues. This means that it will not feel hard, unusual or unnatural, even when injected into areas like the lips.
When will I be able to resume normal activities after treatment with Belotero®?
Some minor redness or swelling may occur after injection but these side effects typically fade quickly. Nevertheless, many patients return to work and other normal activities immediately after treatment.
