What is Belotero?
As we grow older, wrinkles around the lips and nasolabial folds (the lines and wrinkles that run from the side of the nose to the corners of the mouth) become deeper and significantly more pronounced. As one of the most prominent signs of aging, these lines can add years to your appearance. Fortunately, Belotero is available. This prescription injectable medicine is designed to evenly smooth and fill in fine-to-moderate nasolabial folds, achieving a smooth and natural appearance that ensures you look as young and vibrant as you feel.
How does Belotero work?
Over time, our skin begins to lose naturally occurring components that keep it young, including collagen,
elastin and hyaluronic acid. As these components disappear, the skin becomes more susceptible to develop
permanent lines and wrinkles. With an active ingredient of hyaluronic acid, Belotero is a smooth, flexible
gel that blends into the organic structure of your skin. In this way, it
fills in stubborn lines and wrinkles around the mouth and nose, while preserving your skin’s natural texture
and normal facial movement.
What to expect during your Belotero treatments
During your consultation for among the best Belotero Redondo Beach has to offer, our experienced
specialists will begin by carefully evaluating your facial anatomy and signs of aging as a whole. From
there, we will compose a custom treatment plan designed to use the injectable medicine to minimize any deep
folds and fine lines that have developed around your mouth.
During your actual treatments, we will begin by cleaning the area thoroughly and applying a local
anesthetic to ensure your comfort. We will then place a series of strategic injections to achieve the
precise look you desire, with the entire process lasting approximately thirty minutes.

What to expect after your Belotero treatments
After your Belotero injections, you may experience some mild swelling, redness, bruising and tenderness at
the injection site, though these effects will resolve on their own within one week. There is very little to
no downtime associated with the treatment, and most patients are able to resume their normal daily
activities right after their visit. However, we do recommend avoiding strenuous activity, extensive sun or
heat exposure and alcohol for at least 24 hours after your injections to ensure an optimal outcome.
Following your Belotero treatments, you can expect to see an immediate improvement in the lines and
wrinkles around your mouth, with a smooth and supple facial appearance. When performed by our experts at
Marcus Medical Spa, your results will last approximately six months, at which point you will need a
follow-up treatment to preserve your youthful new look.
