Nasolabial folds are some of the most obvious signs of aging. These wrinkles and creases develop from the outside of the nostrils and curve downward to the corners of the mouth. They are caused by reduced levels of hyaluronic acid in the skin that occurs as a natural part of the aging process. Belotero® is an injectable treatment that restores the hyaluronic acid that your skin is missing.
- No downtime
- Increase hyaluronic acid to add volume and hydration
- Long-lasting results
The best candidates for Belotero® treatments are men and women who have moderate to severe nasolabial folds as the primary signs of aging. Dr. Kenneth Rothaus may recommend Belotero® in conjunction with other medical spa treatments or after anti-aging facial surgeries. In addition to treating nasolabial folds, Belotero® can be used for:
- Vertical lines around the mouth
- Wrinkles on the chin
- Lines at the corners of the mouth
Belotero® is a gel that is injected with a small needle along the nasolabial folds. The gel gives the skin an immediate lift, so you may notice some softening of the wrinkles. The hyaluronic acid starts to attract more water to your skin and hold it in place to further reduce the wrinkles. The results may last up to six months.
Belotero® injections require no special recovery. You may have some minor tenderness at each injection site for the first 24 to 48 hours. You should not massage or rub the area.
After your consultation with Dr. Rothaus, we will discuss pricing based on the amount of product that is needed for your Belotero® injections. This may vary slightly once the treatment is performed. Rothaus Plastic Surgery offers financing for patients who are interested in making affordable monthly payments on their Belotero® treatments.
