Why might a New Orleans patient consider Belotero fillers for their face?By Dr. Mary Lupo
Dr. Mary Lupo, of the Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology, offers Belotero for patients who want natural results for superficial wrinkles and folds. It can be used for forehead lines, crow’s feet, and the glabellar lines (between the eyebrows). It is injected into the upper layers of the skin to reduce fine lines and in these areas.
Belotero is prepared and delivered in a syringe as an injectable. It is thinner and more lightweight than fillers such as Restylane and Juvéderm, but like them, it is non-allergenic. You do not need a skin test, and treatment is done just under the surface of the skin to pump up creases. Redness may appear for a few hours at the injection site.
Belotero is approved by the FDA, and it is a hyaluronic acid filler, meaning it is sugar-based. It differs because it is injected more superficially than other fillers such as Juvéderm and Radiesse. It can be used in conjunction with other dermal fillers to smooth the skin for a natural-looking result.
Patients in the New Orleans, LA area who are looking for a non-invasive way to address superficial wrinkles and folds on the face may want to consider the benefits that Belotero can provide. Dr. Mary Lupo offers this and many other injectables to assist patients in reducing the signs of aging and to feel younger and more confident in their appearance.
