New filler Belotero – is it helpful?
Just some basics – Belotero is a hyaluronic acid filler made by Merck and recently approved by the FDA in the U.S. It’s been available in most other parts of the world for longer. Kelly – the answer to the question depends on what you are trying to accomplish with it. Belotero is formulated to be thinner/lighter and flow more easily into small or fine lines or areas where you don’t want much volume. For example, it would be a good choice for fine lines on the upper lip or to give the border of the lips just a little more definition without adding volume. It would not be a good choice to fill in marionette’s lines or the nasolabial fold, for example. One question or criticism of it has been that, in some people, it doesn’t seem to last very long. It’s safety record so far seems to be good.
Hope this helps,
