Created by Merz Aesthetic, Belotero differs from other popular dermal fillers available on the market due to its thinner and lighter composition. Belotero represents the result of the Cohesive Polydensified Matrix technology, an innovation that ensures the much higher fluidity of the injected substance. Unlike other fillers that could raise the skin’s layers and produce clumps, Belotero can be distributed more evenly between the problematic areas of the skin.
A common substance found in young skin, hyaluronan is responsible for supporting the structure of the skin, maintaining it smooth and supple. As we grow old, the amount of hyaluronan – along with collagen and elastin – diminishes, thus leaving the skin prone to wrinkles and lines.
Meet Belotero, a non-animal derived hyaluronic acid (HA) filler that constitutes our newest solution to fine lines and severe wrinkles.
What makes Belotero unique?
You might argue that HA-based dermal fillers that are injected in the superficial layers of skin are not very effective and provide short-term results exclusively. Moreover, there’s always the risk of experiencing unpleasant side effects, such as the classical blue spot at the injection site associated with the aforementioned procedure.
However, thanks to its thinner composition, Belotero can be administered closer to the skin’s upper surface without any of the above-mentioned issues. In addition, because Belotero spreads consistently under the skin, Dr. Gerstman will utilize a smaller quantity, hence eliminating the possibility of developing bumps and lines immediately after the treatment.
Belotero can be safely used with Botox
Since the innovative hyaluronic acid can be injected into the upper layer of the skin, it also means that Dr. Gerstman can control the amount of Botox needed to relax the facial muscles.

Designed to fill under eye hollowness and very superficial wrinkles, Belotero is the newest revolutionary dermal filler available. Even though Belotero is a hyaluronic acid based filler, the results are more delicate and softer compared to products with a similar composition. Following are a few answers to the questions you might already be thinking about, but if you want to learn more about Belotero, don’t hesitate to contact us or ask your physician.
Just like any other HA-based dermal filler, the Belotero’s effects are not permanent and will degrade naturally in time. This is why most of our patients schedule a follow-up treatment after a period of 6 months to 1 year, the variation in duration stemming from each patient’s different response to the treatment. Furthermore, the effects of Belotero also depend a great deal on the treated areas. Check out our Belotero before and after photos to see what kind of results others have experienced.
Thanks to Dr. Gerstman, most patients undergoing a Belotero treatment can resume their normal activities immediately after the procedure. Even in the situation when you experience some mild side effects like bruising or redness, rest assured that you can mask the problem area by applying a concealer.
Yes, Belotero is one of the very few hyaluronic acid dermal fillers that have been approved by the FDA. In fact, the well-known strictly regulatory authority has confirmed the claims of the manufacturer –Belotero is indeed capable of reducing moderate to deep folds and wrinkles in the facial area. The FDA has also approved utilization of the Belotero in lip augmentation procedures.
Most patients don’t require more than two injections in order to obtain the desired results, and the procedure doesn’t take longer than 20 minutes. However, keep in mind that the length of the treatment could be slightly longer if you intend to treat several areas or in case you require additional services over the course of the same session.
Belotero is dermal filler specifically developed to reduce the discomfort level during treatment. While the procedure is painless for the most part, Dr. Gerstman also applies a topical anesthetic cream for patients before starting. Certain patients have experienced mild swelling and redness which usually subside quickly.
Belotero is open to men and women of any age. It is necessary to mention that this is not a “one-size-fits-all” dermal filler. In fact, this anti-wrinkle treatment is available in three distinct formulas that address various issues. The best approach in this case is to consult Dr. Leslie Gerstman and find out which procedure matches your aesthetic needs.
