As of March 20, 2020 we are no longer seeing patients in our office due to COVID-19. We are happy to continue caring for you during these uncertain times. We are now offering remote appointments for new and established patients although we will no longer be able to see you in person. For some patients, an in person visit is best, but if you feel that your concern could be addressed online, this may be a convenient option for you.
Belotero®: for fine lines and wrinkles, specifically around the mouth.
Belotero® is a hyaluronic acid filler that is commonly used for very fine lines and wrinkles, particularly for lines around the lips. It is approved to temporarily smooth out and fill in moderate to severe nasolabial folds as well and can also be used off-label within the lips.
When injected superficially, it has a very natural look. One Belotero® treatment lasts around 3 – 6 months on average. Topical numbing cream is placed on the skin beforehand so it is comfortable for the patient.
Belotero® can be injected into the skin during a simple, quick appointment that can be performed around your schedule. Like other fillers, Belotero may cause temporary swelling and bruising.
Our goal here at The Dermatology of Institute of Boston is protect the health of our patients and staff. To continue caring for our patients during these uncertain times, while strictly adhering to the guidelines set by the CDC, we will be only offering virtual consultations. For some patients, an in person visit is best, but if you feel that your concern could be addressed online, this may be a convenient option for you.
