What results can New Orleans area patients expect after Belotero injections?By Dr. Mary Lupo
Belotero is hyaluronic acid, which is a gel that can attract water to the areas of concern. It is injected immediately below the skin to address the signs of aging and improve one’s youthful appearance. Hyaluronic acid products such as Belotero are well received by patients as they do not cause allergic reactions and can provide results for several months before reinjection is necessary. Hyaluronic acid is also absorbed by the body naturally without affecting one’s health or wellbeing. It is safe and biocompatible with the body, which is why it has been FDA cleared for cosmetic use.
Belotero injections are completed quickly during an in-office procedure. Dr. Mary Lupo examines the face and determines where the injections should be placed for the best results. Patients rest easy as the injections are administered gently and with precision by a board certified dermatologist. Results are seen immediately after injections, which allow patients to leave the office with dramatic results that can last six months or longer.
After treatment, patients may still experience some discomfort at the injection site, as well as mild swelling and bruising, though these side effects are nothing to be worried about as they often subside within a few hours after treatment. Patients love that there is little to no downtime associated with Belotero injections, as well as with other injectable therapies such as Juvéderm and Botox.
