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.
"I went in for a consultation for a scar I had from a procedure done last year. First off, the office is gorgeous with beautiful art pieces adorning the walls and a wonderful group of staff members that greet you with a warm welcome. I met with Dr. Foley who was kind and attentive as I told her about my nightmarish experience that I had at a med spa in California where I formerly resided. She listened to my concerns and recommended that I start with micro-needling to diminish the appearance of the scarring. This is when I was introduced to the esthetician Robin who was beyond outstanding and patient as she explained in detail each procedure and went over the cost details. I felt so comfortable that I decided to get my first micro-needling session with her on the very same day. I am so glad that I did because she was so gentle and checked in with me during the whole process to assure that I wasn’t uncomfortable or feeling any pain. Honestly, I felt that the micro-needling experience was quite pleasant and therapeutic in the hands and expertise of Robin. Thank you again Synder dermatology for a wonderful first time experience."- A.C. / Yelp / Apr 06, 2022
"I am so grateful to have found this office and the best Dermatologist. I see Dr Elizabeth Foley for my Rosacea. I had been through 3 different Dermatologist who had pretty much given up on me. I was determined to find someone that would help me look myself again.Dr Foley is an amazing doctor. Her bedside manner, the best. I finally felt like someone was listening and understood what I was going through. I can’t thank her enough. I highly recommend her to any/everyone."- R.C. / Yelp / Feb 17, 2022

"I can say that I’ve never been more happy to write a review as I type this!This is based on my recent experience with Dr. Foley for a dermatology appointment for skin & hair. Dr. Foley did 3 things well: Solutions-oriented, Education, & Bedside Manner.Solutions-oriented - I went to a previous "specialist" to get my hair and skin issue resolved. She prescribed me a bacterial medicine and said "There’s nothing we can do." I used the medicine for 3 months with no incremental impact. I decided to go with a second opinion and go to Dr. Foley. She assessed me and quickly came up with 4 solutions for my issues (injections, shampoo, gel, and pill) with the narrative "I like to attack the issue aggressively. And guess what? Dr. Foley’s solutions are working!!Education - Dr. Foley walked me through the science of my issues and how each of her 4 solutions would help resolve the issues. I enjoy knowing HOW things work and Dr. Foley’s expertise in dermatology was very clear - not to mention her ability to simplify her education into lay terms so you understand. When I shared my specialist experience, she said "You don’t have a bacterial issue. That diagnosis was wrong and I’m sorry that person led you in the wrong direction." This is the benefit of getting a second opinion of a true subject matter expert like Dr. Foley.Bedside Manner - First off, Dr. Foley is hilarious! If you like jokes/natural humor, it’s an added plus of seeing her. Throughout the injections, she was extremely patient and continued to check-in - which demonstrated an awareness to the patient experience (vs a simple doctoral transaction). Dr. Foley has me scheduled to come back next month to check on the impact of her recommendations. Not only am I going to be happy to show her the progress, I’m excited to laugh with her. Dr. Foley: Thank you for not only being good at what you do and helping to resolve my issues, but giving me hope again :)"- B.S. / Yelp / Jan 28, 2022
"I had my first appointment today, and it was a great first experience! I was seen on time, the appointment was upbeat and fun (which I didn’t expect), and I was out the door in no time. Dr. Foley and the staff were amazing. Glad that I decided to finally do something about my skin!"- R.L. / Yelp / Oct 04, 2021
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. There may be some mild bruising which can last 1-2 weeks.
