Belotero is a hyaluronic acid liquid filler that is injected into the skin to target wrinkles around the nasolabial folds or forehead. Because of Belotero’s versatility, this injectable filler can be used for almost all patients, whether they have beginning wrinkles or deeper creases, as long as the patient has a relatively good skin tone. It is made from a substance that is a hydrator by nature, which is naturally found in the body. Belotero reinstates this substance in the body, and promotes skin hydration. Newport Beach cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Ed Domanskis, offers Belotero to patients are looking for a longer-lasting filler product.
"Excellent experience with Dr. Domanskis! I had abdominalplasty and liposuction. He explained the procedures very thoroughly as well as what to expect immediately following my surgery. He was in contact with me by phone as well during the first week post op I felt very safe in his hands. My results are absolutely phenomenal I couldn't be more pleased!"- W.P. / Yelp / Aug 29, 2015

"My experience at Dr Domanskis office was not only superior but very professional. The procedure was explained in great detail. Not only did I appreciate his professionalism but his kind and gentle manner. After my surgery he followed up on a daily basis to make sure I was comfortable and not experiencing any discomfort. Rochelle his office manager exhibits like Dr Domanskis a professional and caring manner. I would highly recommend his services. I am very pleased with my results.Respectfully, Katherine A.

"Let me start by saying that I have seen many specialists during my lifetime due to a congenital condition, so when I say that Dr. Domanskis is one of the best, trust me !!! Not only did he empathize with my situation but most importantly, and the main reason I came back for the procedure, was his honesty!!! Very hard to find an honest surgeon that will take the time to give his real input and really put the patient first. Prior to the surgery, we discussed some details and he really listened to the way I wanted it done and he performed accordingly. I am very happy with my results. I am returning to him for some revisions due to personal preference on the esthetics however it's 200% better than what it was before !!! Moreover, I do want to mention Rachelle as she was very sweet and helpful during the whole process!!! Thank you again :))))"- S.T. / Yelp / May 20, 2016
Belotero is often a single-session treatment that lasts up to 30 minutes, sometimes even less. Patients may experience pain is similar to any other injection treatments. A topical anesthetic may be applied to minimize discomfort during the session. The amount of medication, formulation and injection spot vary considering each patient’s circumstances. The entire process is repeated every 6 to 12 months as the formulation is naturally absorbed by the body.
What to Expect@headingTag>
Since this is a non-invasive treatment, patients will be able to go back to their normal routine shortly after the injection. Some swelling and redness may be present, but these usually subside after a few hours. Strenuous activities must be avoided for at least 1 day. The results are evident immediately, and can last from 6 months to 1 year. Generally, the skin treated will appear smooth with a rejuvenated glow that makes facial features look young and fresh.
Each syringe can cost between $400 and $600, and a single treatment may use more than 1 syringe depending on the severity of the case. Sometimes more than one treatment is necessary. During the initial consultation, the doctor will analyze the patient’s cosmetic concerns that Belotero can correct. The amount of medication, formulation and number of treatments are factors that account for the total cost of the procedure. Third-party financing may be a good option since insurance companies rarely cover cosmetic treatments.

There are a number of available injectable fillers that are hyaluronic based in the market today. However, Belotero is best known for its function to correct severe wrinkles commonly found around the nasiolabial folds. Other fillers will be discussed during the initial consultation with the doctor to highlight the advantages of each, and the best approach to the patient’s facial features and cosmetic concerns.
Belotero is hyaluronic-acid-based filler that is FDA approved. It is backed with years of extensive testing for its function and safety. Since hyaluronic acid is a substance processed naturally in the body, it is a solution that integrates well with the underlying tissues, and provides great results in terms of adding volume and promoting skin hydration.
BOTOX or Belotero?@headingTag>
BOTOX works in a way that once injected, the skin will appear smoother and softer because the solution is a muscle relaxant. It freezes the muscles beneath the skin where it was injected. However, it doesn’t add any volume to the area. Belotero, like other injectable derma fillers, can provide the same results as BOTOX, but works in a way that it adds more volume so that it stretches the skin to make it appear more youthful and smoother with wrinkles becoming less evident.
Do I Need Reinjection?@headingTag>
In most cases, yes. Since Belotero is made of hyaluronic acid, a substance that occurs naturally within the body, the injected solution normally gets absorbed. It is recommended to maintain injections every 6 months to 1 year to supplement the loss of volume. Some patients initially opt for derma fillers to see if cosmetic enhancements will look and feel before proceeding with more permanent and invasive procedures such as face lifts.
