Belotero® is a new injectable filler, similar to Juvederm® and Restylane®. It consists of hyaluronic acid (HA), which is a naturally-occurring component of your skin. It can be used in the same areas as those fillers, but has an added advantage.
Because of the way Belotero® is manufactured, it has a finer consistency than other HA fillers. Other HA fillers are great for filling grooves and folds, but cannot be easily injected into fine wrinkles because they may leave a visible ridge. Belotero® is sufficiently fine to permit injection into fine lines without leaving a ridge, and giving an extremely smooth contour to the skin.
Dr. Kutty now uses Belotero® for finer surface wrinkles including:
- Crow’s feet
- Forehead lines
- Wrinkles between the eyebrows
- Fine lip lines (“smoker’s” lines)
This injectable can be administered in conjunction with BOTOX® Cosmetic to improve correction.
