Skin Hydration With Belotero

As you age, your features may lose some of their youthful volume, and wrinkles and folds may develop around your face. Dermal fillers like Belotero can address these changes non-surgically, rejuvenating your appearance in a conservative, effective, and natural-looking way. Belotero is great for reducing fine lines and wrinkles in the smile lines, marionette region, chin, lateral cheek and tear trough.


Belotero is a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler treatment designed to restore fullness and elasticity to the soft facial tissues. Belotero® helps correct fine lines and wrinkles but is unique in the way it easily integrates with the skin, offering a natural look. Belotero® was FDA approved for use in the U.S. in 2012 and is available at Chevy Chase Facial Plastic Surgery. After Belotero treatment, patients often happily remark that they look years younger! As a Key Opinion Leader with Merz, Dr. Porter was one of the few Facial Plastic Surgeons that was able to use Belotero® in advance of its nationwide release.

What to Expect During and After Treatment

Thanks to its quick treatment time, once Dr. Porter has medically cleared her patient for treatment, the injection time takes approximately 15 minutes. Belotero® injection is a minimally invasive treatment. When you are ready to begin your treatment, Dr. Porter will inject Belotero® into the desired area(s). We recommend icing the areas after the treatment and avoiding aspirin and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications around the time of the injection. On the day of the injection, we recommend no exercise afterwards. If bruising occurs, makeup can be applied the next day. We often combine this treatment with skin tightening procedures, Botox, as well as other fillers. Every treatment is individualized to give the best result.

Where Are The Best Places For Injection of Belotero?

Belotero is a very light filler. Its properties allow subtle increase in lip fullness, softening of mild nasolabial folds and is also one of our top choices for placement in the tear trough. Occasionally Dr. Porter will use it in the cheek in those with mild signs of aging for slight increase in volume in preparation for a special event such as a wedding or reunion.
