September 24, 2012 – Belotero is a relatively new FDA approved dermal filler that may fill a void left by other soft-tissue fillers that have been on the market for some time. This dermal filler has been gettting quite a bit of press lately and according to a recent article in Cosmetic Surgery Times, Belotero is ideal for smoothing superficial wrinkles and lines.

One of the qualities that Belotero has that makes it a good choice as a dermal filler is its cohesive nature. The hyaluronic acid-based gel can be injected evenly to eliminate mild to moderate facial wrinkles. It can also be used as a dermal filler to add volume to sunken facial areas and for lip augmentation.

Belotero’s biggest claim to fame is that when injected close to the skin surface to fill superficial wrinkles, it won’t cause a blue tint to the skin in bright light. The article points out that other hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers often have this unwanted effect.

Belotero lasts about as long as Juvederm and Restylane, which are two other hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers. However, if you have severe wrinkles and lines, the article states that Juvederm and Restylane may be better dermal filler choices.
