More advanced wrinkles and folds cannot be treated with most dermal fillers and injectables, so we may recommend Belotero®. Board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Lars Enevoldsen of Skinfinite Solutions Medical Spa and Laser Center, offers Belotero® for men and women in Modesto, Stockton and surrounding areas of California.
What is Belotero®?
Belotero® is an FDA-approved dermal filler for treating moderate to severe creases that develop between the nose and mouth. Known as “nasolabial folds,” these deep wrinkles begin at the outside of the nostrils and extend along a slightly curved path to the outer corners of the mouth. Nasolabial folds are some of the most obvious signs of aging and are difficult to camouflage.
Treatments with Belotero® fill in nasolabial folds to give you a rejuvenated appearance.
Benefits of Belotero®
Belotero® is a minimally invasive procedure, meaning there are no incisions necessary, only the insertion of a very fine needle. By comparison, surgery is very invasive as the surgeon makes incisions in the skin and manipulates the tissues of the body. Because Belotero® is administered by needle, you have no scarring and no lengthy recovery or downtime.
How Does Belotero® Work?
To understand how Belotero® works, you should first understand why wrinkles develop. Young skin is enriched with three key substances:
- Collagen that works as a support structure
- Elastin that gives the skin resilience and elasticity
- Hyaluronic acid that attracts water to the skin to keep it hydrated
Belotero® works by increasing the amount of hyaluronic acid in your skin. The increased hydration adds fullness that gradually “lifts” the skin that has collapsed to form nasolabial folds.
What to Expect from Belotero®
Our nurse injectors specialize in Belotero® treatments, so the procedure is quick and comfortable. Several injections are made along the nasolabial folds. You will see an immediate softening of the folds. On average, the results last six months or longer.
How Much Does Belotero® Cost in Modesto, CA?
The cost of facial fillers, such as Belotero®, is based upon the amount of product that is used and the number of injections. Therefore, patients with moderate nasolabial folds may pay less than those with advanced nasolabial folds. Because there is a wide range of costs, we prefer to provide this information after your consultation. We will also explain our convenient payment options, including cash, checks, major credit cards and financing through Med Loan Finance and CareCredit®.
Moderate to severe nasolabial folds are amongst the most detrimental signs of aging. With Belotero® treatments, you can reduce the problem in less than one hour. To learn more, contact Skinfinite Solutions Medical Spa and Laser Center to schedule a personal consultation.
