Belotero in Miami, FL
For patients who want to experience the latest and most natural dermal fillers to restore youthfulness to facial features, Adam J. Rubinstein, M.D., F.A.C.S., a board-certified plastic surgeon in Aventura, is among the few professionals in the Miami, Fort Lauderdale, and South Florida area offering Belotero®, a specialized filler treatment that reduces vertical folds and wrinkles around the nose and mouth using your skin’s own natural hydration process.
What Is Belotero®?
Belotero® is an FDA-approved injection treatment that restores a youthful appearance by specifically targeting wrinkles, creases and folds around the nose and mouth. Belotero® treatments achieve this by adding Juvederm® (HA) to bind with water in your skin, enhancing the skin’s own hydration process, which gradually restores skin volume. Over time, as your skin becomes more naturally hydrated, wrinkles and lines fade away as if by magic.
Benefits of Belotero®
Belotero® erases wrinkles, lines and creases around the mouth and nose, an area in which the signs of aging can mar an otherwise youthful appearance. For patients who seek natural-looking results and a minimally invasive process that boosts the skin’s own hydration process, Belotero® is an excellent choice. Belotero® offers the following benefits:
- Reduces the appearance of facial lines, creases, folds and wrinkles
- Feels and looks completely natural
- Allows normal facial movement and expressions
- Is a quick, easy treatment performed in the doctor’s office
- Provides immediate, noticeable results
- Requires little to no downtime
Who Is a Good Candidate for Belotero®?
Anyone who wishes to see smoother facial contours, erase stubborn etched-in lines, creases, wrinkles and folds around the nose and mouth area may be a good candidate for Belotero® treatments. People who have visible skin damage caused by smoking or over-exposure to the sun often see a dramatic improvement in skin volume with Belotero®. Belotero® is not recommended for patients who experience multiple or severe allergies, including those with a history of anaphylaxis, or patients with allergies to gram-positive bacterial proteins.
How Should I Prepare For Belotero®?
Before your consultation with Dr. Rubinstein, mention whether you are taking any medications, particularly those that affect blood clotting, such as aspirin, NSAIDs or blood thinners. Also mention whether you are taking medicines that affect your immune system, and if you are experiencing any type of skin reaction or irritation such as cold sores, cysts, pimples, rashes, hives, or an infection. You may have to delay treatment until the reaction or irritation has passed.
How is Belotero® Administered?
Belotero® is injected into the treatment area via an extremely fine needle. For patients who require several injections, Dr. Rubinstein may numb the area with a topical anesthesia. Dr. Rubinstein will carefully select the precise injection sites on your face to give you the most flattering and natural-looking results. After the treatment, you will immediately see noticeably improved skin volume and luminosity, with a reduction in wrinkles, lines, and creases. As the HA attracts water over time, your skin’s enhanced hydration further reduces the visibility of lines and wrinkles. Most patients require only one Belotero® treatment. For some patients, Dr. Rubinstein may recommend a follow-up treatment after six months to further reduce lines and wrinkles.
How Much Does Belotero® Cost In Miami?
Because Belotero® is an elective cosmetic procedure, most health insurance providers will not provide coverage for the costs. To make your Belotero® procedure more affordable, Dr. Rubinstein offers easy financing options for all of his patients and accepts cash, personal checks, and credit cards as forms of payment.
