Among some of the filler options offered by Baltimore plastic surgeon, Dr. Janet Woodyard, is Belotero. This hyaluronic derma filler injection adds volume and shape to the face and is a popular filler procedure for fine line correction among many practitioners. Hyaluronic acid is a natural hydrator within the skin that slowly depletes as we age. This valuable substance can now be replenished back to the skin through filler products such as Belotero. Due to its special formulation, Belotero contains the unique ability to minimize deep wrinkles and fine lines around the lips, nasolabial folds, creating a softer, more youthful facial appearance. Dr. Woodyard will discuss the benefits of Belotero during the consultation and determine if it is the right filler selection for you.

Belotero is administered during an in-office appointment that typically takes about 30-60 minutes. The injection treatment, including the number of syringes used and injection locations and technique, is tailored during the procedure to fulfill the patient’s specific needs. The injection is given through a syringe to localized areas on the face. Pain or discomfort can be effectively controlled with the application of a topical anesthetic that is applied in the office just prior to the procedure.
What To Expect
Immediately following a Belotero injection, mild swelling and redness at the injection site are usual. This will subside a few hours after the procedure. Patients can resume their normal activities immediately, but exercise should be avoided for a few hours. Bruising may also occur but can usually be concealed with the proper make up. Results following the injection will become apparent immediately and usually last approximately 6 or more months. After the procedure, skin will appear younger and restored.
The average cost per Belotero treatment is $450-$550 per syringe. However, cost will vary depending upon how much of the filler is used to obtain the desired result. The number of syringes varies; some patients may only need 1 syringe while others may require 2 or more. Consult our certified team to uncover more details of a personalized Belotero treatment.

How Does It Compare?
There are many reputable fillers on the market today, each with their set of benefits. While several filler products comprised of hyaluronic acid exist, Belotero works a bit differently to interact with the mid-to-deep dermis for correction of moderate-to-severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the nasolabial folds (laugh lines). The differences between the hyaluronic fillers can be discussed during the initial consultation.
Is It Safe?
Yes. Belotero is an FDA procedure that has undergone extensive tests to validate its efficacy and safety.
Botox or Filler?
Belotero, as well as many other injectable fillers, offer a similar result as what may be achieved through BOTOX, but the approach is different. Injectable fillers help to decrease wrinkles by adding volume to certain facial structures that look deflated due to aging or weight loss. By adding volume, the skin’s surface appears fuller and smoother. BOTOX temporarily freezes the underlying facial muscles, allowing them to relax which causes the skin’s surface to appear softer and smoother. A skilled practitioner will be able to determine which procedure would garner the best results.
