What Is Belotero®?
Belotero® is an injectable, hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler and is FDA-approved for the use of filling in moderate to severe nasolabial folds. Belotero® first became approved by the FDA in 2011, and since then the company has gone on to introduce a whole range of Belotero® fillers, each created with different consistencies for the treatment of varying kinds of wrinkles and fine lines. Belotero® can be combined with other dermal fillers and injectables including Botox® for dynamic wrinkles.

What Can Belotero® Treat?
The most common application for Belotero® injections is in the treatment of nasolabial folds. That’s not the limit of Belotero®, however, as it's often also used for the treatment of other areas of the face, such as the chin, the cheeks, the lips, or the forehead, specifically in the following ways:
- Correcting small bumps on the nose
- Treating certain types of scars, such as acne scars
- Contouring the cheeks and jawline
- Filling in fine forehead lines and wrinkles
- Plumping up the lips
- Correcting bags underneath the eyes
- Filling in fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes, the nose and the mouth
How Is Belotero® Treatment Performed?
Your Belotero® treatment will likely begin by mapping out treatment areas on your face. Next, your skin will be cleansed with an antiseptic solution. Belotero® is injected into the treatment area by your specialist with a fine gauge needle with lidocaine mixed in for a more comfortable treatment. This should help to subside any pain or discomfort during the procedure besides the small initial prick of the needle entering the skin. Once Belotero® has been injected, your provider will then gently massage the treatment area to ensure that the Belotero® product has spread evenly so as to achieve as natural a result as possible.
While this can obviously differ depending upon the number of areas being treated with the Belotero®, on average the whole treatment could be completed in as quickly as 15 minutes or as long as an hour. Some patients will be required to return in time for top-up treatments in order to ensure that the look they desire is fully achieved.
How Long Will the Results of My Belotero® Treatment Last?
Each Belotero® product yields different results, lasting somewhere between six and 18 months. Here's how long results generally last for each product in the Belotero® line:
- Belotero® Basic: Up to six months for subtle to moderate wrinkles or lip enhancements
- Belotero® Balance: Up to six months for subtle to moderate wrinkles or lip enhancements
- Belotero® Soft: Up to 12 months for fine wrinkles or lip enhancements
