Dermal Fillers Can Help You With:
Belotero® dermal filler FAQ –
Belotero® dermal filler is an injectable filler that quickly integrates into your skin. Once injected, it instantly smoothes the lines and wrinkles in your face.
What is the difference between Belotero® dermal filler and other fillers?
While Belotero® dermal filler is made of the same material (hyaluronic acid) as some other dermal fillers, it has unique properties that allow it to adapt within the skin for soft and even correction. The versatility of the product makes it strong enough to handle deep treatment areas such as nasolabial folds (smile lines around the mouth), yet soft enough to treat more delicate areas such as vertical lip lines (thin lines that appear above the lip line).
How does it work?
Belotero® dermal filler is made of a material called hyaluronic acid or HA. HA naturally exists as a component of your skin. Because it binds to water, it plumps and fills in wrinkles and folds, allowing immediate and smooth correction.
How soon can I expect results?
How long does it last?
Individual results may vary, but Belotero® dermal filler may last from about 6 months to up to 2 years.
Does it hurt?
As with all needle injections, there can be some pain associated with the procedure. Stacey uses local or topical anaesthetics such as lidocaine or numbing gels to minimise discomfort.
What is it made of?
Belotero® dermal filler is made of a substance called hyaluronic acid or HA. A natural component in the skin, HA has the ability to bind to water, making it an ideal dermal filler, as it binds with the skin’s own water to plump wrinkles and folds.
How is the treatment performed?
Belotero® dermal filler is injected into the skin in a simple, quick procedure using a super fine needle – it can be done over your lunch hour.
Is it safe?
Belotero® dermal filler is approved in New Zealand and Australia and has undergone testing in clinical studies to prove its safety.
Are there any side effects?
Just as with any injection, you may experience mild irritation, swelling, itching, redness, bruising or tenderness at the injection site. These side effects typically resolve on their own. If any of these side effects persist, call your healthcare professional immediately.
How long is the recovery time?
There is very little to no downtime associated with a Belotero® dermal filler procedure. In fact, most patients return to their normal daily activities right after their visit. Every patient is unique so be sure to discuss your plans with your appearance medicine professional during your consultation.
