Belotero® is the newest wrinkle filler at Dr. Michalak’s office. Similar to popular fillers like Juvederm® and Restylane®, Belotero can treat common problems like wrinkles, folds, and loss of tissue volume caused by aging. Made from hyaluronic acid, Belotero requires no allergy test and lasts 6-12 months.
Benefits of Belotero
Belotero Seattle & Issaquah can treat moderate to severe wrinkles, lines and folds, including:
- Smile lines
- Facial hollows
- Marionette lines
- Lip Lines
If you are bothered by any of these skin conditions, you may be an ideal candidate for Belotero. During your consultation, we’ll discuss your treatment goals and determine if Belotero is a suitable treatment for you.
The Treatment: What to Expect During Belotero Treatment
A typical Belotero treatment takes about 20 minutes. If you are sensitive to injections, we can apply a numbing cream to the injection sites. We will mark the treatment areas before they are cleansed with antiseptic. The injections are performed with a thin needle. To ensure even distribution of the filler, we often perform a quick massage.
With its smooth tissue integration, Belotero is designed to help reduce the discomfort of dermal filler injections. If you are sensitive to injections, a topical anesthetic or numbing cream can be provided.
After Belotero in Seattle & Issaquah
While many patients return to work immediately after treatment, others wait a short while as minor swelling, bruising or redness subsides. In the meantime, some concealer can help disguise the signs of Belotero treatment.
The results are immediately apparent, but they are not permanent. Hyaluronic acid gradually degrades over time. Because the results are impermanent, you can decide later if you wish to continue Belotero treatments or choose another product.
How long your results last will depend on you and the area you have treated. Patients in studies showed results lasting 9 months after one Belotero treatment. Remember that once your results wear off, you can return to our Issaquah office for a touch-up treatment.
