John R. Barbour, MD, FACS, is a triple board-certified plastic surgeon. He often recommends Belotero® as a non-surgical wrinkle treatment for men and women in the Washington, DC area, including Fairfax, Arlington, Alexandria and surrounding communities in Virginia.
What is Belotero®?
Losing moisture in your skin is one of the reasons you develop wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a substance that helps keep water in your skin. As you age, your body produces less HA, and the skin cells become dehydrated and prone to damage. Belotero® contains HA to replenish the levels in your skin, and this may help reduce wrinkles and lines.
What are the Benefits of Belotero® Treatments?
- May give the skin a supple glow
- No downtime
- Treatment takes little time
- May produce some immediate results
What Should I Expect from a Belotero® Treatment?
Belotero® is an HA gel injected into the skin using a small needle. The injections are made inside and along the wrinkles to produce an even and natural result. After the treatment, you may notice the wrinkles are slightly less visible. As the HA binds with water, the wrinkles may continue to soften.
Dr. Barbour may recommend Belotero® for:
- Lip and cheek enhancement
- Marionette lines
- Nasolabial folds
- Neck banding and wrinkles
- Forehead wrinkles and sagging brow
How Long Do the Results Last?
Each patient absorbs the hyaluronic acid differently, so results vary. The average time Belotero® provides anti-aging benefits for men and women is six to 12 months.
How Much Do Belotero® Treatments Cost?
The best results from dermal fillers are achieved when the procedure is tailored to the patient’s needs and anatomy of the wrinkles. Dr. Barbour determines your treatment plan during the consultation, and we base pricing on his recommendations. After the appointment, we provide information about the cost of treatment and our financing options.
