Question : I recently heard of a new injectable filler called Belotero. Can you explain what this is and what it’s best used for? Is it better than other fillers?
Answer : Belotero is a hyaluronic acid filler. This is in the same group as Juvederm, Restylane, Perlane, Prevelle and many others. Hyaluronic acid fillers are based on a compound which is a naturally occurring substance. Belotero is supposed to work well and its claim to fame is that it treats very superficial fine lines. There is a risk when treating fine lines with some other hyaluronic acid fillers that you can get a bluish tinge in patients with white skin. Belotero is also a long-lasting filler.
