With many treatment options you’re sure to find a Belotero® product that is right for you. Whether you want to reduce wrinkles and lines, add volume or rehydrate your skin, Belotero® may be just the thing you need to achieve your desired look.
What is Belotero®?
Belotero® is an FDA-approved line of dermal fillers formulated with Hyaluronic Acid (HA). It is an extremely effective filler because HA is a natural component of our skin that keeps our skin hydrated. Over time, age-related structural changes occur in our skin and environmental exposure (sun, pollution etc.,) result in damaged, wrinkled, dry flattened skin and thinning lips making you look older than you feel.
How do Belotero® Treatments work?
There are three main lines of Belotero®:
