This patient was a routine user of Botox injections to treat the fine lines around his eyes called crow’s feet. However, he recently made the switch to Belotero injections instead. He decided to steer away from his usual use of neurotoxin treatments like Botox and Dysport. And he did not want laser rejuvenation. Thus, a hylauronic acid filler was his answer. Between Juvederm, Restylane, and Belotero, the third was the best choice due to a few advantages.
Advantages of Belotero Injections
Belotero was granted FDA approval in 2011. It is gaining popularity for use in the smoothing of very superficial fine lines and wrinkles, since it can be injected closer to the surface of the skin. The lack of Tyndall effect with this new hyaluronic acid serum facilitates Belotero injections at a particularly shallow depth. Tyndall effect is the bluish, bruise-like coloring displayed with superficial Juvederm and Restylane injections.
The superficial injection makes for minimized bruising, swelling, and redness. Thus, the recovery period is faster. Additionally, due to its lightweight composition and greater elasticity, Belotero fills the treated area more smoothly. So another advantage is that it minimizes the risk of a bumpy outcome. Lastly, with one treatment lasting 6 – 12 months, Belotero has the potential to last longer than the other HA fillers.
