Belotero is a hyaluronic derma filler injection that Dr. Timothy Mountcastle in Ashburn, VA offers at his Mountcastle Plastic Surgery office and Medical Spa. This fantastic injectable adds volume and shape to the face and is a popular choice among board-certified practitioners. Hyaluronic acid is a natural hydrator within the skin where moisture slowly diminishes as we grow older. It is fit for those who desire a long-term, immediate wrinkle solution that brings a more youthful complexion. New developments in skin rejuvenation technology allows for the reappearance of this valuable substance back to the skin. Because of its distinctive formulation, Belotero contains the unique ability to minimize deep wrinkles such as lip and smile lines, and forehead wrinkles.

"Dermatologist referred me, I was VERY nervous about the removal of my cyst. Dr. Mountcastle explained every step before he did anything. While I was waiting for the medicine to numb me a nurse sat in room with me I was talking a mile a minute and told her I talk a lot and am very random when I'm nervous lol, she told me to talk away if helps. The procedure was very quick and painless. Week later stitches out and I couldn't believe how well it looks it honestly and truly doesnt look like I had stitches and it was on my face. I am very pleased. Thank you so much!"- M.S. / Facebook / Feb 10, 2020

Belotero is administered during an in-office appointment that typically takes about 15-30 minutes. The injection treatment, including the dosage, specific formulation, and injection location, 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. Patients will feel a small prick as the needle inserts through the skin, but any pain or discomfort can be controlled with a topical anesthetic.
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. Results following the injection will become apparent immediately and usually last between 6-12 months. After the surgery, skin will appear younger and restored.

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.
Belotero results typically appear immediately and last for an average of 6-12 months.
