Belotero Is an Effective Wrinkle Filler

You can start to develop the early signs of aging at any point in time. In many cases, mild lines can begin to appear on the face even in your 20s and 30s. As aging process progresses, deep creases may begin to appear on different areas of your face, especially the mouth.
In addition to the aging process, severe wrinkles such as these can also appear due to poor lifestyle habits or excessive stress. Fortunately, there are simple treatments available to provide relief from facial wrinkles and fine lines. One such effective remedy is Belotero.


Belotero is an FDA approved cosmetic filler designed to correct wrinkles. The treatment consists of injecting hyaluronic acid in the skin to fill the fine lines and creases on the face.

It is composed of hyaluronic acid, which naturally occurs in the body. This chemical exists inside cartilage, connective tissues, fluids around eyes, fluids in joints, and inside skin tissues. The structure of hyaluronic acid is such that it can swell when mixed with water. So, when it is injected in the skin, it will expand to fill in wrinkles. It can be used in its pure form or combined with other chemicals to help make it more effective.


Belotero is very useful in treating all types of wrinkles. It can work as effectively on superficial lines as it does on deep wrinkles. Not all injectable treatments that use hyaluronic acid as the filler material are effective for superficial lines. It also doesn’t reflect light and cause the skin to have a bluish tinge as can be the case with many other filler treatments.

Since the filler is composed of hyaluronic acid, it is safe to use without you having to worry about an allergic reaction occuring. It requires no allergy testing for its use. Belotero also doesn’t cause puffiness when injected. Your face will appear normal but youthful and rejuvenated.

If you are unhappy with your Belotero treatment, you can even dissolve it with enzymes that your doctor can inject at the treatment site.

Belotero can be used for treating vertical lines on upper lips and deep wrinkles on the face. You can also use it for adding volume in under your eyes or elsewhere on the face that has depressions.

The treatment is painless and you may only feel a slight discomfort from the initial injection. You may choose to use topical anesthesia if you are bothered by the prick of a needle.

One Belotero session requires less than an hour. Depending on the skin’s condition, it can be completed within 10 to 45 minutes.


The effects of Belotero can last for six months to a year depending on your skin’s condition at the start of treatment. You may require additional sessions every year or so to maintain results. If you wish to use Belotero, you should consult an experienced medical professional to learn more about it. Wrinkle fillers also require precise handling that can only be managed by qualified doctors. Any mishandling can cause negative side effects.

If you are pregnant or nursing, you should inform your doctor about it as you may need to wait to undergo the treatment during this time. You may also need to stop smoking for a few weeks before and after Belotero treatment sessions. The same applies to the use of pain medication or vitamin supplements. These are necessary precautions with all cosmetic and medical surgical procedures and helps to eliminate the chances of complications occurring.
