What are Belotero Fillers?
Belotero fillers are hyaluronic acid-based fillers that, when injected into a certain depth of the dermis, bind with water to rejuvenate and revitalize the skin. These fillers aim to reduce lines and wrinkles, smoothening the outer skin layer. The skin tissues absorb the hyaluronic acid content in the filler solution over time, inducing a natural rejuvenation process in the skin tissues. This makes the belotero filler solution a better option than the fillers that only “fill” the area under the skin.
Who is a Good Candidate for Belotero Fillers?
You may be a good candidate for belotero fillers if you have tried several products to reverse wrinkles but couldn’t see a significant improvement. However, discussing your candidacy criteria during the initial consultation with a dermatologist is advised.
Generally, you can get belotero fillers if you are not pregnant or breastfeeding and are overall healthy. You can get this cosmetic treatment to address the following issues:
- Smile lines
- Forehead lines
- Hollow cheeks
- Hollow under-eyes
- Crow’s feet
Types of Belotero Fillers
Initially, belotero fillers were only used to treat moderate to severe nasolabial folds. However, manufacturers later expanded their line of products, adding fillers with various compositions to their offerings to address different aesthetic concerns.
Here is a list of the types of belotero fillers.
- Belotero Soft: This filler solution helps reduce small wrinkles on the facial area. Issued addressed by this solution are smile lines around lips and eyes and smoker’s lines.
- Belotero Basic: Belotero Basic is a suitable filler solution for medium to deep lines around the mouth.

Where Can Belotero be Injected?
Belotero fillers can be injected into the following facial areas to improve their appearance.
- The skin area around the eyes
All Belotero fillers are based on hyaluronic acid, although in varying compositions. Since hyaluronic acid is naturally found in our bodies, preparing for Belotero filler treatment doesn’t involve following an extensive list of guidelines. Still, your doctor may call you for a preliminary checkup to rule out any possibility of the treatment causing side effects.
Belotero products usually have some amount of lidocaine, a local anesthetic solution that helps mitigate pain caused by the injections. You may still request your practitioner to apply a numbing solution to the treatment area if you do not want to experience pain caused by injection needles.
Before administering belotero filler injections, your dermatologist may mark the treatment site for mapping. After that, they apply an antiseptic solution to disinfect the area.
Once the area is clean, the doctor injects the belotero filler using a fine-needled syringe. After injecting, they may massage the treated site to distribute the injected filler across a wider area under the skin.
The doctor will administer multiple injections, depending on the area being treated. The time taken by this treatment may be between 15 minutes and one hour, depending on the concern being addressed and the treatment region.
Belotero fillers are administered through a minimally invasive procedure and are incredibly safe. Hence, you won’t need to do much in terms of aftercare. However, some red flags do exist. For example:
- Your doctor will advise you not to engage in intense physical movements for a couple of days after the treatment.
- You will have to stay away from sunlight for about 48 hours.
- Additionally, you will need to avoid NSAIDs for a day after getting Belotero fillers.
There is no downtime associated with Belotero filler treatment. You can resume your routine activities or professional duties right after the treatment.
Complications and Side Effects
Common side effects of Belotero injections include:
- Lumps and bumps
All these side effects are minor and usually subside in a few days. Speak to your doctor in case the injection site develops an infection.
