What is Belotero?

Belotero is an injectable dermal filler with a hyaluronic acid base. Hyaluronic acid is naturally found in your skin. It binds with water, which helps to plump up your skin and make it appear smoother. Over time, your body absorbs the hyaluronic acid in Belotero.

Belotero was originally approved by the FDA in 2011 to fill in moderate to severe nasolabial folds, also called laugh lines. However, the company has since expanded its line of products to include fillers of different consistencies for treating different types of lines.

For example, Belotero Soft is used for very fine lines, while Belotero Volume is used to restore volume and plump up the cheeks, nose, and lips.

Belotero is safe for most people. However, its safety for people under the age of 18 or women who are pregnant or breastfeeding is unknown. You should also avoid Belotero if you have a history of severe or multiple allergies, especially to Gram-positive proteins.

How does Belotero work?

Belotero has a soft, gel-like consistency. The hyaluronic acid in the product binds with the water in your skin to subtly fill in lines and wrinkles. Some Belotero products have more volume, which makes them effective for enlarging your lips, cheeks, or chin.

What areas does Belotero target?

Belotero is approved for the treatment of nasolabial folds. However, it’s also used on the forehead, chin, cheeks, and lips.

Belotero is used to:

  • Fill in lines around your eyes, nose, and mouth
  • Correct under-eye bags
  • Fill forehead wrinkles
  • Contour your cheeks and jawline
  • Plump your lips
  • Treat some types of acne scars
  • Correct small nose bumps
