Belotero® in Phoenix, AZ
Belotero® is a dermal filler that treats many of the most common signs of aging that develop around the mouth, eyes, and nose. The injections soften lines and wrinkles by restoring levels of hyaluronic acid, a substance that naturally occurs in your skin. Board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Larry C. Leverett, offers Belotero® treatments for men and women in Ahwatukee, Chandler, Gilbert and the surrounding communities of Phoenix.
What is Belotero®?
Collagen and hyaluronic acid (HA) are two natural substances that are essential for young skin. The role of HA in our skin is to attract and bind with water. In other words, HA is like a sponge that keeps our skin hydrated. Unfortunately, as we age, our bodies produce less HA, and the skin cells essentially dry out and shrink. As the cells get smaller, our skin collapses, and the result is lines and wrinkles.
Benefits of Belotero®
Belotero® is unique amongst dermal fillers because the product can be used for several anti-aging applications. For this reason, Belotero® is considered a good “starter filler,” but even patients who have had fillers in the past may prefer Belotero®. If you are looking for a way to look younger without surgery, consider Belotero®, a cosmetic dermal filler that:
- Is administered quickly and easily
- Restores HA levels to hydrate and “plump” the skin
- Treats a range of lines and wrinkles with just one product
- Provides anti-aging benefits for up to six months
Good Candidates for Belotero® Treatments
We recommend Belotero® for men and women who have:
- Smile lines that extend from the side of the nose to the outer corners of the mouth
- Marionette lines that start at the outer corners of the mouth and extend downward
- Vertical lines that form around the lips often called “smoker’s lines”
- Corners of the mouth that have a downward appearance that is caused by lost tissue volume
- Crow’s feet at the outer corners of the eyes
What Can I Expect from My Belotero® Treatments?
Belotero® is an FDA-approved dermal filler that is administered through a quick and simple process. A very tiny needle is used to make several injections in the wrinkles. Using multiple injections ensures that the HA is properly distributed across the wrinkle and is unlikely to form lumps under the skin. Each injection deposits a small amount of Belotero® into the skin. The volume of the dermal filler product “lifts” the skin, so you see immediate results. The HA then goes to work, attracting and binding with water to add fullness and soften lines and wrinkles.
After the Belotero® Treatment
Some patients experience minor tenderness and redness around the injection site for one to two days after the treatment. You can expect the results of your Belotero® treatment to last up to six months. Dr. Leverett will suggest a follow-up treatment in four to six months.
How Much Does Belotero® Cost?
The cost of Belotero® is based on the amount of product that is used for each treatment. After your consultation, we are better able to provide an accurate cost.
