Belotero: “The New Wrinkle Killer”

Share Article

When it comes to treating fine lines and wrinkles, a specially formulated skin smoothing agent is necessary to erase the first signs of aging. Belotero is the newest dermal filler to provide patients with a weapon to finally effectively combat wrinkles, a filler that New York Cosmetic Dermatologist Dr. Cameron Rokhsar, M.D., says is the newest tool to tackle upper lip lines and fine lines around the eyes.

Belotero targets specific concerns where fine lines can form, most commonly on the upper lip and around the eyes,” Dr. Rokhsar says. “It can also be injected more superficially compared to other hyaluronic acid fillers, giving it a unique precision.

A new wrinkle eraser has recently been released onto the market called Belotero, a dermal filler that shows rival potential against other longer-standing fillers. Belotero is a gel that has been demonstrating exceptional results in significantly diminishing upper lip lines and fine lines around the eyes. These lines are one of the first few signs of aging and can be filled in so precisely and accurately with Belotero, it’s as if wrinkles are airbrushed right off the face, leaving behind a smooth surface. This new filler can provide reassurance for those that want to get rid of fine line wrinkles, allowing them to achieve their cosmetic goals and delay signs of aging.

Because of its ability to seamlessly integrate with the skin’s natural facial features, Belotero provides a detailing effect by providing subtle volume to the face as well as hydrating the skin. Patients who have lost their once youthful lips and eyes to wrinkles can have them restored with the injections that provide safe and effective results. During conversation, lips and eyes receive the most focus and attention, which is even more of a reason to keep them free from fine lines. The skin changes after years of facial expressions, sun damage and exposure to various substances, it’s only natural that the aging process show itself eventually, but that doesn’t mean the wear and tear left from years of experiences have to remain. Modern medicine advances rapidly, resulting in the constant expanding and improving of treatments to fulfill consumer demands. This provides patients with tailored treatments based on their personal cosmetic goals.

There are several dermal fillers available today and each has its own distinct properties. These fillers are primarily used to fill in and smooth out superficial to deep wrinkles, as well as augment, enhance and improve the volume of certain facial features. Radiesse is a calcium based filler used to augment nose, cheekbone and chin features. Another filler injection used to prevent the effects of aging is Sculptra, which is primarily composed of poly-L-lactic acid, a naturally occurring substance that works by restoring collagen into the deeper layers of the skin. Overtime Sculptra will stimulate collagen production that will allow for a gradual and natural skin enhancement. Collagen is a key protein responsible for keeping the skin tight and smooth and has the ability to partially reverse the aging process if stimulated.

The newest filler injection to provide patients with a smooth correcting tool is Belotero. Belotero is a hyaluronic acid based filler much like Restylane, Perlane, and Juvederm. These dermal fillers differ in the way their molecules are cross linked, granting each one a unique strength that makes some better at treating certain wrinkles and augmentations than others. Belotero is thinner and more lightweight compared to its predecessors, giving it the ability to naturally restore the fine lines formed from laughing, smoking and squinting, among many other repetitive micro-muscular movements.

“Belotero targets specific concerns where fine lines can form, most commonly on the upper lip and around the eyes,” Dr. Rokhsar says. “It can also be injected more superficially compared to other hyaluronic acid fillers, giving it a unique precision.”

Before Belotero was made available, superficial injections of other hyaluronic acid fillers could create the Tyndall effect. This occurs when light passes through a clear substance, giving skin an undesirable blue discolored appearance. Belotero is specifically designed and proven to effectively treat fine lines so patients no longer have to settle for another filler.

Hyaluronic acid is naturally present in the body. It is found most highly concentrated in the eyes and joints and acts as a cushion and hydrating mechanism. As a natural complex sugar that attaches itself to water, hyaluronic acid has the ability to absorb more than one-thousand times its own weight. Because hyaluonic acid is naturally produced in the body, Belotero eliminates the possibility of the body rejecting the filler so no allergy tests are required. Belotero was created using a technology called a Cohesive Polydensified Matrix which makes the final injection produce a solution with a high degree of elasticity. The combination of hyaluronic acid, collagen and elastin provides a powerful structure within the skin. This directly results in a rehydrating appearance while providing an evenness and enhancement in facial contours.
