Belotero® is a non-surgical dermal filler treatment that helps reduce unwanted fine lines and wrinkles. This procedure is similar to JUVEDERM® and Restylane®, but offers added benefits that can help you look and feel your best. Belotero® is an FDA-approved injectable treatment that typically results in little to no recovery time. This innovative product is designed to integrate within your own natural tissues and adapt to the contours of your face, smoothing wrinkles and adding volume for a more refreshed and youthful appearance.
Belotero® can treat several areas of your face and typically lasts for up to 9 months after your first treatment. The Belotero® solution contains similar moisturizing elements that naturally occur in your skin, which can ultimately help produce a long-lasting, more youthful appearance. Since Belotero® is designed to revitalize the skin without affecting your natural facial contour, the treatment can result in a more natural-looking outcome – reducing the chances that people will know you have “had work done.”
Belotero® can be beneficial for patients affected by frown lines, crow’s feet, fines lines between the nose and mouth, hollowness in the cheeks, loss of volume in the lips, and other issues. Deborah H. Atkin, M.D. will work closely with you to discuss the best treatment plan to fit your unique needs.
Dr. Atkin performs every cosmetic dermatology procedure herself and is completely involved throughout the entire treatment process. Our board-certified dermatologist uses her extensive experience to asses how Belotero® can best be utilized with your unique facial structure.
