When a patient is looking to transform aged skin, Belotero, a dermal filler, can address a number of issues. It’s not only injected into the face to smooth out moderate to severe lines and wrinkles, but also to restore lost volume and to reshape and contour hollow areas of the face. Made from hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found in the body, Belotero is easily absorbed into the skin to rejuvenate it for suppler, younger-looking skin. This filler is commonly used to treat lines between the nose and mouth, as well as the corners of the mouth and vertical lines above the lips. San Antonio dermatologist, Dr. Annabelle Garcia, uses Belotero for certain patients who desire softer, smoother skin. She will provide a thorough skin analysis and recommend the right injectable for the best results.
Best Candidates for Belotero
Belotero provides the best results for patients with moderate to severe lines and wrinkles, as well as those with hollowed out areas in the face due to volume loss caused by aging or weight loss. This filler is especially useful for those with severe wrinkles between the nose and mouth, nasolabial folds, and aged skin around the corners of the mouth and above the lips.

"Sonterra Dermatology is AMAZING!! I have been to several dermatologists in San Antonio and this one is by far the best. Each time I have been in the office the staff have been friendly, professional, and wait times were extremely minimal. I have been working with Daniella Arellano, PA and she is just terrific. She is extremely knowledgeable, explains everything, provides compassionate care and never makes you feel rushed. I know due to COVID there were some issues with scheduling and getting through on the phone, but I booked online without issue. Previously, I had no issue with the office and getting scheduled quickly. Highly recommend this practice, especially Ms. Arellano!"- J.E. / Yelp / May 13, 2020

Belotero is a quick and simple procedure that is carried out in a dermatologist’s office. Usually, an injection takes between 15 and 30 minutes, but is dependent upon the patient’s condition. The medical professional will determine the appropriate area or areas to treat prior to injection. Belotero will then be injected with a fine needle to minimize discomfort. Patients should consult with their doctor about options for topical anesthetics to further reduce pain.
What to Expect with Belotero
During the administering of Belotero, a patient will feel a mild prick, but there shouldn’t be any pain associated with the injectable. After treatment, there may be some redness and mild swelling in the injection area, but these side effects usually go away within a few hours. There is little to no downtime following the injection, so the majority of patients are able to return to their normal day-to-day activities. After receiving Belotero, most patients will notice an immediate difference in their appearance and can expect results to last 6 months or more.
Belotero Expected Cost
For a Belotero treatment, patients can expect the cost to be around $400-$600 per syringe. There are several factors that affect pricing such as the exact dosage needed and how many areas will be treated. A patient should also take into account that more than one treatment may be needed. It’s recommended that a patient consult with a medical professional to get an accurate price.
