Belotero in Phoenix, AZ
Many people believe that 40 is the new 30, but if you have started losing volume in your face, you may feel older, not younger. Losing volume in your face is a normal part of aging, but you can still have a fresh, youthful appearance with Belotero® treatments at Arizona Facial Plastics, PC. Our board-certified ENT and facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon, Dr. Farhan Taghizadeh, specializes in Belotero® treatments for men and women who live in and around Phoenix, Scottsdale, Paradise Valley and the surrounding communities of Arizona.
What is Belotero®?
Belotero® is an injectable dermal filler that restores facial volume. Around the age of 40, our faces lose volume, and the skin begins to sag downward. The repositioning of the soft tissue causes lines, wrinkles and even embarrassing creases around the mouth and nose. These are some of the most noticeable signs of aging, and before the advent of Belotero® men and women may have considered surgery to look younger.
Benefits of Belotero®
Dr. Taghizadeh has chosen Belotero® for his patients because the treatments:
- Give immediate results with continued improvements in the weeks after the injections
- Maintain a natural and age-appropriate appearance while helping you look refreshed and younger
- Offer little to no unwanted side effects or allergic reactions
- Take less than one hour
- Require no incisions, downtime or recovery
What Can I Expect from Belotero®?
The injections of Belotero® contain hyaluronic acid (HA), a substance that naturally occurs in your skin. HA is responsible for attracting and binding with water that your skin needs for staying hydrated, smooth and free of lines and wrinkles. By increasing the amount of HA in older skin, Belotero® helps your skin fight the signs of aging naturally.
How Belotero® Differ from Other Types of Injectable Fillers?
While many injectable fillers can treat superficial lines and wrinkles, Belotero® is one of the few products that soften severe wrinkles and creases around the mouth and nose. The product is also preferred by men and women who want their anti-aging treatments to produce subtle, gradual improvements.
Recovery from Belotero®
In order to produce a natural-looking improvement, Dr. Taghizadeh will make several injections along the lines and creases. The needle that is used for the procedure is smaller than what is used for your vaccinations, so you should be comfortable during the injections. Dr. Taghizadeh can use a topical numbing cream should you experience discomfort during the procedure. You will see a noticeable improvement immediately after the treatment. The HA in Belotero® will continue to attract water and improve skin texture for up to six months.
Where Can Belotero® Be Applied?
In addition to treating lines and creases around the mouth and nose, Dr. Taghizadeh also uses Belotero® for:
- Lip enhancement without implants
- Softening the appearance of scars
- Reducing under-eye circles
- Adding volume and shape to the contours of the face
Will Everyone Benefit from Belotero®?
Patients should be in good health before having treatments with Belotero® and other injectable fillers. You should also have no history of allergic reactions to the active ingredients in the product.
