How does Belotero Work to Reduce Wrinkles? | Elite Facial Plastic Surgery, Cosmetic Surgery, Tampa FL

Most people in Tampa start developing fine lines and small wrinkles as early as their late twenties or early thirties.  This is because of more frequent exposure to the drying rays of the sun, but there is a way to reduce wrinkles before they become more noticeable.  A new dermal filler called Belotero, is specially designed to reduce wrinkles and fill in small lines found in delicate areas of the face.

Why Try to Reduce Small Wrinkles?

Often people are not concerned with tiny wrinkles and do not seek treatment until the lines become more noticeable.  However, treating wrinkles when they are just starting can help you look younger for longer than those that do not take any action.   Once the evidence of aging appears, the damage is already done and no over the counter product can reverse the process.  The small creases mean that the skin has lost some of its moisture and elastin that keeps it supple.  Dermal fillers that contain hyaluronic acid, such as Belotero, can help to stimulate collagen growth that will allow the skin to keep moisture more easily.  This means that fewer wrinkles will form as a result.

How Belotero Works to Reduce Wrinkles

Belotero is a dermal filler that is made of hyaluronic gel.  It is less dense than other fillers so it works better to reduce very fine lines and can be used in areas where the skin is very thin.  For example, Belotero is an excellent choice to treat the perioral lines (otherwise known as smokers lines) around the mouth.  These small, but usually multiple, vertical lines are created by repeated puckering of the lips such as the action required by smoking.  Smoking also dries out the skin, so it is no surprise that it is a contributing factor in the formation of wrinkles.

This new filler is used to treat crow’s feet around the eyes, soften wrinkles around the bridge of the nose, and fix the creases that develop along the lips.  It is a subtle filler that mimics the feel of natural skin and can be injected in tiny amounts which is useful for those with thin or fine skin.  Belotero can be used alone or along with another dermal filler to reduce wrinkles in other areas of the face.  Because it is easy to layer, Belotero can be used as a perfect “top layer” over other products that address deeper creases.  A denser filler such as Radiesse or Juvederm can be used to add volume to the “valley” of the wrinkle with a topping of Belotero to provide a more natural look near the surface.

Reduce Wrinkles with Natural Results

Belotero is a subtle filler and so it can be used on younger patients and on those with thinner skin.  An injection can reduce wrinkles to make the patient look younger, but not noticeably different in appearance.  As with all dermal fillers, the injections should be done only by a well-qualified medical professional in an accredited medical facility.  Hyaluronic acid is a substance that is naturally present in the human body so dermal fillers made of HA are generally very safe to use.  However, it is important to work with a provider that has many years of experience using dermal fillers to get the best results.  According to Dr. Michael Jasin, a board-certified facial plastic surgeon in Tampa, there is as much of an art as a science to injecting dermal fillers.  Dr. Jasin states that “inexperienced providers often place too much filler or do not inject the filler into the right dermal layer.”  This means that the results may look unnatural or be dangerous if not done properly.
