What is Belotero?
Our Austin, TX dermatology office offers Belotero, a new injectable filler that addresses a number of cosmetic concerns. Made from hyaluronic acid, Belotero is a longer lasting filler that can smoothen wrinkles and lines near the nose, mouth, and lips. It adds softness, definition, and contour where natural volume has been depleted due to age, environment, weight loss, or simple gravity. When a patient desires to rejuvenate aged skin, our board-certified Austin dermatologists may suggest this filler, depending on the patient's exact needs, skin type, and correction needed.
"As usual, Dr. Aranda goes above and beyond in providing a personable care that is difficult to find. She takes the time to discuss various treatment options, discusses the pros and cons of each and genuinely values your input to collectively determine the best outcome. I feel so strongly about Dr. Aranda, Dr. Snyder and their professional staff that I still went to them last year when they were out of network. Thank you Dr. Aranda, you're just great!"- B.J. / Google / Mar 25, 2017
"Dr Aranda is extraordinary. My wife and I both came in with what we thought was a viral infection on out skin, after seeing 3 different doctors. It turn out we both coincidentally have the same rare allergic reaction to shiitake mushrooms, which we had eaten the week before. Dr Aranda figured this out in about 10 minutes despite the fact she and here partner had never actually seen it before, Amazing! We were so relieved. Doctor Aranda obviously has a passionate devotion to her work and that just the kind of person you want on your side when you are dealing with a problem. I cannot recommend here highly enough!"- G.M. / Google / Jul 12, 2018

"Dr Aranda is extraordinary. My wife and I both came in with what we thought was a viral infection on out skin, after seeing 3 different doctors. Nasty red welts all over. It turns out we both coincidentally have the same rare allergic reaction to shiitake mushrooms, which we had eaten the week before. Dr Aranda figured this out in about 10 minutes despite the fact she and here partner had never actually seen it before, but only read about it. Amazing! We were so relieved.

Belotero is a filler that can be used for more superficial wrinkles and lines and has proven to be especially effective around the nasolabial folds and in the areas between the nose and mouth. While there are other fillers derived from the same substance, Belotero has been formulated to improve these areas superficially, which we use for those with more precise correction needs, such as those with sun damage, smokers lines, etc. where lines tend to be at rest.
Belotero is a treatment that is performed right inside our dermatology office within our facility. It is a simple and quick procedure that typically takes under 30 minutes. This is dependent upon how many injection sites there are, as well as how long or if a numbing cream is used. The substance is injected into the skin using a fine needle and then the injector will gently apply a cold press and lightly massage the area if needed. Prior to the injection, the areas of concern will be marked and discussed with you.
What to Expect
During a Belotero treatment, the patient generally does not feel any major discomfort other than a minor pain. There will be some swelling and redness immediately after the injection, but this goes away within a couple of hours. Patients usually leave the office with a small cold pack to place lightly over the injection areas to help with swelling. There is little to no downtime associated with a Belotero treatment. Patients should avoid heavy exercise for about 18–24 hours. Results are immediately noticed and can last up to 6 months or longer.
