Belotero® Beverly Hills

Finally there is dermal filler formulated for use in delicate areas around the mouth, lower eyelids and lips. Belotero, a lightweight filler containing hyaluronic acid, provides an artful medium for use where precise and subtle sculpting must be done.

Subtle correction of surface lines and wrinkles

At Torkian Facial Plastic Surgery, Dr. Behrooz Torkian achieves stunning results layering this light filler over dense volumizing fillers providing among the best Belotero Beverly Hills residents can get. Injecting a dense filler to provide volume and lift, then finishing with the lighter Belotero achieves the classic elegant and refined look commonly seen in celebrities, models and others who are frequently in the public eye.

Lipstick bleed lines vanish with Belotero

Even non-smokers can be plagued by the vertical lines that appear above the lip as the cause is often hereditary. Most fillers are too dense to use in this delicate area. Belotero is injectable filler designed to subtly fill in fine lines and wrinkles in thin skinned areas without causing bumps or lumps.

Another delicate area well served by Belotero is under the eyes in the tear trough. The skin in this area is very thin requiring a soft gel that fills the area to a smooth finish without being visible. Belotero is Beverly Hills’ most popular filler for use in these areas, being the lightest of the hyaluronic acid products (whose family include: Juvederm, Perlane and Restylane).

The Belotero difference is it integrates into skin tissue

Belotero is a hyaluronic acid based product with a difference. It is designed to integrate into tissue, which fills in etched-in lines such as crow’s feet and smoker’s lines. It can be used in smile lines beside the mouth as well as moderate folds that run from the nose to the corners of the mouth.

Dr. Torkian uses Belotero in his Beverly Hills plastic surgery practice for patients who are experiencing very early signs of aging as well as those who have more established lines and wrinkles. The hyaluronic acid contained within the gel has a great capacity to bind with water, which expands, thereby smoothing wrinkles and lines.

Belotero procedure

Hardly any cosmetic procedure could be easier than having a Belotero procedure. After Dr. Torkian has medically cleared his patient for the treatment, the injection process takes about 30 minutes. There are no after effects except possibly some redness at the injection site. Because Belotero is so much lighter than other fillers, swelling and bruising is not usually an issue. Patients can return to work or most other activities immediately following treatment.

The only restrictions following your Belotero Beverly Hills treatment concern the first 24 hours after the injections. These include avoiding strenuous activity, alcohol, aspirin or other NSAID medications and sun or heat exposure.

Patients ask how long treatment will last. This depends on a few factors, such as how much product was injected and where it was injected. In areas where there is a lot of movement, such as the mouth, Belotero will not last as long as less active areas. Most treatments last between 4 and 6 months, and 1 to 2 treatments per year should keep those wrinkles and lines at bay.
