Juvederm and Belotero are hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers that treat facial wrinkles while providing smoother, radiant skin. It is an FDA-approved gel formulation with results from an initial treatment proven to last for one year. Since the hyaluronic acid is created from biosynthesis in a laboratory environment, allergy tests are not required before treatment.
The primary benefits of Juvederm or the Belotero filler is the longevity of the results and reduction of wrinkles and skin folds. Candidates for this filler treatment are patients who seek improvements in the appearance of facial lines or to augment their lips. It may not be a good option for female patients undergoing pregnancy or nursing.
Juvederm and Belotero can treat any area of the face, including the nose, forehead, and the skin surrounding the mouth. It improves facial scars caused by acne and can also augment the size and shape of the lips. These areas will experience a distinct improvement after a Juvederm filler injection.
This filler is a great treatment option if you are dissatisfied with the effects of aging on your skin. It is not effective in treating scarring or thinning skin. While most patients can be treated with Juvederm, we recommend consulting with the doctor beforehand to discuss any factors that may affect your candidacy.
