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.
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.
"Great doctor. Short wait time. Great staff. Good results (I hope). "- B. / Demandforce / Mar 12, 2016
"I came here in February and had a wonderful experience. I only waited about 10 minutes and a lovely PA treated me. She was very warm and engaging, I really appreciated it because I was initially anxious and uncomfortable about the procedure. We laughed a lot and although the process was quite painful, she definitely made it more bearable. Will be following up soon for a second!"- B. / Google / Oct 23, 2020
"I’ve been coming here for about a year or so, I have to be honest, I haven’t had the best luck. Few times, including today, I wanted to give up and find a new place BUT I’ve meant the sweetest, caring, compassionate, hard working, goes out of her way to make things right......her name is Kim. She has gone above and beyond to take care of things that weren’t taken care of before. And for that I will continue to come, because I know I can count on her. Thank you Kim for caring about me as a patient and a customer. You have touched my heart with your listening ear, kindness and have always cared about my concerns. I wish everyone was like you! I’m grateful and thankful for you."- T.W. / Yelp / Jul 22, 2021

"Great first impression! I initially received a referral from my PCP to another dermatology clinic but, after reading some of the reviews and asking around, I made the decision to cancel that referral and find another clinic in my network. I chose this one based on the good reviews here and elsewhere. I was seen by Daniella Arellano PA-C for hair loss/thinning. She listened to everything I had to say and presented various options we could take. No pressure to dive balding-head first into some expensive procedure, but I am happy that I was presented with a few paths to pursue without ruling out any of them for future consideration. I even had some medical questions a week after my appointment so I called and left a message, and I received a call back the same day with answers.This was my first time at this office. It was very clean and everyone I encountered from check-in to check-out was very nice. Located on Sonterra ACROSS from the Methodist hospital - navigation kept wanting me to go TO the hospital!I have only given it 4 stars because I don’t know yet if the visit will fix my issue and I did not want to mislead anyone by giving the impression they can fix EVERYTHING immediately. Maybe they can... and then it will be a 5!"- S.O. / Yelp / Jul 14, 2021
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
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.
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.
