Belotero

As a baby, your skin was supple, firm, and smooth. However, over time your body produces less of the components that keep your skin moist, provide volume to your features, and support your skin’s structure. You develop fine lines and creases. Environmental and lifestyle factors accelerate the process. Now you find yourself looking tired. You want to do something about wrinkles and sagging skin without looking “done.” You want refreshed skin that looks as young as you feel. Belotero could be a great solution.

Dr. Mary Lupo will first talk with you to understand your concerns and ensure your realistic expectation of dermal fillers. She’ll explain that the formulation is injected with a fine needle just beneath the skin in a process that takes about 20 minutes. Treatment is well tolerated by most patients, but Dr. Lupo will recommend a topical anesthetic if you have very sensitive skin.

She’ll utilize an artistically designed, customized application of Belotero’s Balance compound, as appropriate for each treatment area. Most dermal fillers are most effective for just one or a few situations. Belotero is extremely versatile, suitable for frown lines, crow’s feet, bridge of the nose, cheekbones, laugh lines, marionettes, smokers’ lines, around the lips and to plump the lips, décolletage, and the backs of your hands. Belotero may also be used in conjunction with other injectables – dermal fillers and neuromodulators.

There is no downtime; you may return to normal activities after treatment. You could experience a bit of temporary swelling, redness, or bruising, easily managed with cosmetics.

Belotero is incorporated into your natural dermal tissues to volumize and moisturize. Because its primary element, hyaluronic acid, is a natural part of skin, it contours your face subtly and evenly. You won’t even feel it under the skin. You will see results right away, usually with just one treatment. Most patients (66 percent in clinical studies) report that results last about 9 months, so you’ll want to schedule periodic touch-ups to maintain your soft, fresh look.

Belotero, produced by the respected firm of Merz Pharmaceuticals, was approved by the FDA in November 2011, and has been in use in the UK since January 2007. Since it is non-animal based, it is safe and biocompatible – no allergy test is needed.

You take care of your body with regular exercise and a wholesome diet. You take care of your hair with salon treatments. You take care of your complexion with sunscreen and good quality make-up. Isn’t it time to take care of those wrinkles for hydrated radiant, skin? Talk with Dr. Lupo about the newest advancement in dermal fillers – Belotero!

Review From Anne R.
Dr. Mary Lupo and her staff performed Fraxel laser on my face and I had incredible results. The service, which is the brand Fraxel, isn't the least expensive in the city, but when done correctly by a professional like Dr. Lupo, the money is well spent. For me, I had issues with age spots and melasma, which were significantly diminished in one treatment--as well as fine lines around my eyes. My face looked young and bouncy and bright. For Dr. Lupo, this is a craft and she spends time with her patients, giving them the best results possible. I'd highly recommend her and this service to anyone.
