What is Belotero?
A tool in the facial rejuvenation toolbox, Belotero can resolve problems ranging from hollows under the eyes to loss of volume in the lips, as well as in-between issues like gauntness in the cheeks. Although it was only approved for use in the United States in 2011, it has quickly become a go-to filler due to its unique texture. Like many other facial fillers, Belotero is based on hyaluronic acid, a moisture-binding compound that occurs naturally within the skin. Most traditional fillers have a thicker texture, though, while the filler is composed of a thin gel that can be easily contoured without the risk of lumps or overfilling, making it a natural fit for thin-skinned regions such as under the eyes. Plumping up the skin around the lips or under the eyes can rejuvenate aging skin, leading to a younger, more alert look. It can even be used to smooth fine lines such as crow’s feet for a totally fresh effect.
