Aging is rough — rough on our bones, bodies, energy and, especially, our faces. There isn’t always a way to prevent our appearance from becoming old and wrinkly or sunken in, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t a way to fight it once it has already developed. Appearance Care Center offers Belotero in San Francisco because it is trusted by virtually everyone in the aesthetic community as an excellent dermal filler option.

Belotero is a minimally invasive injectable filler made of hyaluronic acid. It is used to restore loss volumes in areas throughout the body that have suffered side effects of environmental damage and the natural aging process. Soft tissue fillers are an extremely popular treatment category. Throughout 2020, more than 3.4 million filler sessions were performed. Roughly 2.6 million of these fillers used hyaluronic acid as the primary ingredient.

While there are many filler options on the market, Belotero has a deep catalog of fillers that can be customized for your unique needs. The width of this coverage and Belotero’s ability to provide reliable and consistent results have made it one of the go-to options for people with volume loss.

Why Do We Need Belotero?

As our bodies go through the natural aging process, many of our systems begin to either slow down or break apart altogether. The first place signs of aging begin to develop is in our appearance. It is difficult to tell that internal organs may be working harder than before or that our bones are becoming less resilient, but it is pretty easy to spot the first signs of fine lines or wrinkles on our faces.

The reason for this comes down to the chemical makeup of our bodies. Skin relies on a host of different proteins to remain taut and youthful. One of the most important and abundant proteins is collagen — a compound that makes up roughly 30% of all the protein in our body.

After the age of 20, it is estimated that the average person will lose 1% of their collagen production every year. By the age of 35, some studies have shown that most people would have already lost about 10% of the fat in their faces. That percentage increases by 1 to 2% every year. This two-pronged attack against our skin’s structure and the underlying volume beneath is ultimately what causes an aged appearance.

Belotero, in its many forms, works to restore the volume that is lost beneath the skin to keep our faces from having a sunken appearance. We need Belotero and other fillers because, frankly, there is nothing we can do about our age. These treatments are one of the only successful ways to fend off the effects after they have happened.

What Does Belotero Treat?

There are four main types of Belotero injectables: Balance, Soft, Intense and Volume. Here is a quick cheat sheet to understand which option is the best fit for your needs.


Am I a Candidate for Belotero?

If you are looking to address volume loss, fine lines or wrinkles throughout your face to achieve a more youthful appearance, then you are likely going to be a strong candidate for Belotero in San Francisco. You should always do plenty of research and ask as many questions as possible during your consultation to make the most informed decision you can.

If you do not have a clear understanding of what Belotero can achieve, then you are setting yourself up to be disappointed by what would otherwise be considered a successful procedure.

How Should I Prepare for Belotero?

Belotero is a minimally invasive injectable procedure, which means you will not need to make any serious preparations for your treatment. We ask that all patients avoid excessive sun exposure, heavy alcohol, smoking and unprescribed drug use prior to their treatment since all of these can harm your recovery and results.

During your consultation, you should bring a list of all the questions you have regarding your treatment. Our expert staff at Appearance Care Center will spend as much time as you need answering those questions. We want you to feel like you have a reliable partner throughout your aesthetic journey.

What Should I Expect from a Belotero Procedure?

The procedure is pretty easy to understand and get through. Here is a step-by-step guide:

  1. Your face will be cleaned to help prevent the chance of infection
  2. A topical numbing agent may be applied to reduce discomfort
  3. The injections will be made at specific, predetermined points on your face
  4. Your face will be cleaned once again
  5. You will be sent home or back to your usual obligations to begin your recovery

What Should I Expect During Belotero Recovery?

It is normal to experience minor pain, discomfort, swelling or redness directly after the procedure. The bulk of these side effects typically dissipate within 48 hours after the injections have been completed, but it is normal to have some lingering side effects for up to a week. Your body will have its own unique reaction, and you are free to give our office a call anytime if you are worried about the side effects you are experiencing.

What Kind of Results Can I Expect from Belotero?

The length of your results will depend on the type of treatment you have performed. Here is a quick reference guide:

Belotero Balance

6 months

Belotero Soft

12 months

Belotero Intense

12 months

Belotero Volume

18 months

It is normal to need follow-up injections after some time has passed, especially if you have not hit your ideal level of improvement. During your consultation, we will work with you to determine what the best treatment plan for your goals would be. We will also keep an eye on your results as they develop and use that information to alter your regimen accordingly.

Can I Combine Belotero with Other Procedures?

Belotero can be combined with many different cosmetic procedures. Let us know during your consultation what you were hoping to achieve with multiple treatments so that we can use that information to develop your treatment plan. Sometimes, you might find that one type of treatment is sufficient to address your concerns, while other instances might be better suited to two different types of procedures.
