For patients seeking Belotero in Baton Rouge, the skilled aesthetic experts at Associates in Plastic Surgery are an excellent choice. We regularly use this effective dermal filler product to address age lines, restoring a youthful and beautiful look with no surgery needed.

The Benefits of Belotero

Belotero resolves a number of moderate and harsh age lines, wrinkles, and folds. These include:

  • The nasolabial folds, which stretch from the corners of the mouth to the corners of the nose
  • Parentheses lines, which border the sides of the mouth
  • Marionette lines, which come down from the sides of the mouth
  • Smoker’s lines (or lipstick lines), which are vertical lines below and above the lips
  • Chin wrinkles

Because Belotero is a non-surgical and only minimally invasive treatment option, it does not involve scalpels and does not create any scars. This also means that it does not require any sort of long or uncomfortable recovery period.

Ideal Candidates

Most patients are excellent candidates for Belotero treatment. Anyone interested in treating moderate or deep facial wrinkles without using surgery is likely an ideal candidate, provided they have realistic expectations for the procedure. Patients with active skin infections in the treatment area should resolve these before scheduling an injection session.

The Science Behind Belotero

The body naturally loses hyaluronic acid over time, leading to volume loss and wrinkle creation. Injections of Belotero restore hyaluronic acid, creating instant volume and smoothing away wrinkles.

Belotero is a soft and cohesive gel made of synthetic hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a substance that is naturally found in the human body, where it attracts water molecules and binds to them. This creates moisture and volume in the skin tissues.


The Treatment Process

The Belotero treatment process is quite short and convenient. It only takes around 30 minutes or less to perform, meaning it is perfect to get during one’s lunch break.

First, the areas that require filling are carefully marked in order to serve as a guide for the treatment. Next, a topical or local anesthetic may be administered in order to numb the treatment regions, making the procedure more comfortable. After this, the injections of Belotero will be delivered to the marked areas using a fine-gauge needle.

Post-Treatment Care

Once your Belotero treatment is complete, you will immediately be able to go back to work and your regular daily activities without any sort of downtime or recovery time.

A small degree of swelling and bruising may be present in the treatment regions. Make sure to avoid alcohol, NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs), physically taxing activities, and prolonged sun exposure for one day after treatment.

Belotero’s results are typically apparent for six months or sometimes longer. After this time, coming back in for a maintenance treatment is recommended.
