Dr. Reichel on Belotero filler

Hi, I am interested in Belotero. Can you tell me more about it? -L
Hi L,
Thank you for your inquiry about Belotero. I am not sure what your cosmetic concerns are, but I do inject a lot of Belotero, and I love it. We are the biggest injectors of it in Seattle. I love it for under the eyes and for fine lines on the face. It isn't good for bigger volume loss in my opinion (such as to place in the cheeks, or deep naso-labial folds). However, there are other great fillers for these areas such as Radiesse, Perlane or Juvederm Ultra-plus. There is also a new filler, Voluma, that is approved for injecting into the cheeks (mid-face).
Belotero really improves under-eye circles. We put on topical numbing cream to decrease tenderness during the injections, and then I usually use 1 syringe for both of the eyes. You can have some tenderness, swelling, redness, and possible temporary bruising. I have seen a couple of cases where the swelling lasted for 3-4 weeks, but most patients look great after a few days. Please call us at Pacific Dermatology & Cosmetic Center for a consultation. 206-859-5777. Mention RealSelf and the consult fee of $80 is waived.
Thank you for your inquiry.
