The Beauty of Belotero

Dr. Smart on combining Belotero with Botox to get rid of pesky wrinkles

Botox is great, but it doesn’t always take the wrinkles away. Sometimes wrinkles are too deep. And simply relaxing the underlying muscles with Botox, or another neuromodulator like Xeomin or Dysport, is not enough to get rid of them. In these cases, we’ve had great success by combining Botox with filler, specifically Belotero. Belotero leaves an elegant result by filling those pesky wrinkles that remain even after adequate treatment with Botox.

Belotero is a great product when used appropriately. It is a hyaluronic acid filler like Juvederm or Restylane, but it has some important differences. Its formulation makes it well suited for very superficial injections directly into those lines that you just can’t seem to get rid off. Other current hyaluronic acid fillers are ideally placed slightly deeper in the skin, for a better volumizing effect.

If you have fine lines that Botox just doesn’t seem to fix, ask your doctor about Belotero. It might be right for you.
