BOTOX AND FILLERS
Belotero / Belatero® is a newer filler that has been successfully used in Europe for several years and is now available on the U.S. market. One of the benefits of Belatero® is that it can be used for very fine lines. Belatero® also typically lasts as long as Restylane.Belatero® is a hyaluronic acid filler similar to Restylane and Juvederm. Hyaluronic acid is naturally found throughout your body, giving Belatero® a high safety profile.Very fine lip lines often cannot be treated with traditional fillers such as Restylane and Juvederm.
Because of the nature of the Belatero® molecules, fine lines can be treated with Belatero® with less risk of lumpiness.Belatero® is also being used effectively for the residual lines around the eyes that Botox may not completely treat. In comparison, Restylane and Juvederm are not recommended for crow’s feet, since the outer eyelid skin is too thin and such traditional fillers can give an unnatural or lumpy appearance.
Whether you are a candidate for Belatero® is best determined at a thorough consultation.Original Source: The Palm Beach Post
