What is Belotero®?
Belotero® is a dermal filler that restores elasticity and volume to the skin around the face. It is most often used to help treat lines around the nose and mouth, creases in the forehead, and crow’s feet. It is made from hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring compound that can be used to treat moderate to severe wrinkles.
