Belotero in Los Angeles, CA
One of the more pronounced signs of aging is the appearance of prominent lines or folds around the nose and mouth. At Beverly Hills Breast and Body Institute, board-certified plastic surgeon Jaime S. Schwartz, M.D., F.A.C.S., uses Belotero® dermal filler on his patients in Beverly Hills and Los Angeles, CA to regain a more natural look by restoring the volume and reducing lines and wrinkles in these areas of the face.
What is Belotero®?
Belotero® is an FDA-approved dermal filler specifically developed for diminishing and even removing wrinkles, creases and folds in the areas of the nose and mouth. What makes Belotero® stand out from the pack is that it uses hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance found in the skin, to add volume to the area by binding with water in your skin. Because Belotero® works with your skin, the results are more natural, leaving a smoother, younger complexion.
Benefits of Belotero®
Belotero® binds to the water in your skin to help restore the volume in areas around the nose and mouth. Belotero® is often recommended to patients with prominent lines, wrinkles and folds in this area of the face because it offers the following benefits:
- No downtime or recovery
- Immediate results
- Long lasting
- Smooths the skin without relaxing facial muscles
Is Belotero® Right for Me?
Belotero® is typically recommended to patients who have significant folds and creases around the mouth and nose, or visible lines and wrinkles from smoking. It is also recommended for patients who have lost facial volume with age.
How is Belotero® Injected?
Dr. Schwartz, or one of his experienced and qualified nurse clinicians, precisely injects Belotero® into the targeted area with a very thin needle. The hyaluronic acid (HA) combines with the water in the skin to immediately improve the skin by diminishing lines, wrinkles and other noticeable signs of aging. Over time, as water in the skin continues to bind with the HA, the imperfections continue to improve and virtually disappear. For repeat injections, Dr. Schwartz typically recommends that patients return every six months.
In terms of recovery or downtime, there is none. Most patients return to their normal activities immediately following their treatment. This is one of the benefits of Belotero® injections.
How Much Does Belotero® Cost?
The cost of Belotero® is dependent on how many injections a patient requires, as well as whether it is combined with other treatments. Dr. Schwartz is happy to discuss this information during a consultation. We offer financing, as well as accept cash, checks, and major credit cards.
What Should I Do Next?
To determine if Belotero® or another dermal filler or injectable is the best option to diminish your signs of aging, it is recommended that you schedule a consultation with Dr. Schwartz so that he can evaluate your skin, your current health, and medical history.
