The dermatologists of Cosmetic Laser Dermatology are proud to be able to offer Belotero® to their San Diego patients. Belotero is a new and unique dermal filler made of hyaluronic acid, the same natural volumizer found in your skin, which greatly reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles when injected by one of our board-certified dermatologists. Belotero is a dermal filler made of a soft gel that provides you with smooth, radiant results almost instantly upon injection!
What areas can Belotero treat?
Belotero is designed to treat many problem areas of the face. As we age, our skin loses elasticity and it’s youthful appearance begins to fade. The hyaluronic acid in our skin begins to dissipate, resulting in a saggy, hollow appearance. However, Belotero injections can replace the lost hyaluronic acid to restore that youthful appearance with smooth, natural looking results. Belotero is commonly used to treat the following areas:
- Frown lines or 11 lines
- Crow’s feet
- Thin lips
- Tear Troughs and under eye hollows
- Laugh Lines (Nasolabial folds)
- Perioral lines or Smoker’s lines
- Vermillion border—If you suffer from lipstick “bleed,” Belotero can restore your lips’ natural border, instantly taking years off your look.
Belotero, a hyaluronic acid dermal filler, is injected into the problem area(s) by one of our experienced, board-certified dermatologists in just one short visit. The procedure is virtually painless and results are immediate. The results do, however, increase over the course of the next few days.
Often times, Belotero is used in combination with several other non-invasive treatments during the performance of what has come to be known as a ‘liquid facelift,’ in which different dermal fillers and neurotoxins like Botox and Dysport work together to provide complete facial rejuvenation for patients. Because Belotero can be easily manipulated and injected into hard to treat areas, it is the perfect addition for the correction of small wrinkles and imperfections caused by volume loss throughout the facial features.

Belotero Frequently Asked Questions
To better help our patients understand how Belotero can be used to improve the effects of aging, our team of world-renowned dermatologists in San Diego have compiled a list of the most frequently asked questions that we hear often pertaining to the injectable treatment.
Q: How long do the results from a Belotero treatment last?
A: While results will vary depending on the patient, Belotero results can last up to 6 months or longer. This may also depend on the areas being treated.
Q: How is Belotero different from injectables like Botox and Dysport?
A: Belotero is a dermal filler designed to fill in fine lines and creases, smoothing out the face and restoring a youthful appearance. Botox and Dysport, on the other hand, are designed to relax the muscles underneath wrinkles to reduce the tension, thus reducing the appearance of the wrinkles. During your consultation, your doctor can discuss with you the different options and, together, you can decide which treatment plan is best for you.
Q: What kind of recovery should I expect after a Belotero treatment?
A: None! Belotero has virtually no downtime, allowing most patients to get back to their regular routine right away. Patients may experience slight redness or mild discomfort at the injection site for a few days, though this will diminish completely in the coming week.
Q: How safe is Belotero?
A: When injected by one of our board-certified expert dermatologists, Belotero is a safe option for reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles as well as volume loss. Belotero is FDA approved, but, as with any procedure, be sure to discuss possible side effects and known allergies with your doctor during your consultation.
Q: Can I get Belotero and Botox/Dysport/Xeomin at the same time?
A: Yes, you can. As long as you visit an experienced, board-certified dermatologist, Belotero can be used in conjunction with Botox, Dysport, or Xeomin to help maximize your results. Discuss this option with your doctor during your consultation to see if using a dermal filler like Belotero and a neuromodulator during one procedure is the best choice for your unique needs.
