Are you looking for a quick solution to fine lines and facial wrinkles? Do you want to subtly enhance your lips or improve the appearance of acne scars and other imperfections? Chernoff Cosmetic Surgery in Santa Rosa offers Belotero® injectable filler as a treatment option for facial lines and wrinkles.
What is Belotero®?
Belotero® is an injectable hyaluronic acid dermal filler that fills hollows within the skin to reduce the appearance and depth of facial wrinkles, lines, and folds. It can also be used to fill in and reduce the appearance of scarring left behind by acne and to add volume to the lips. Belotero® is formulated to mold to a patient’s distinct facial contour while simultaneously allowing the skin to remain flexible for natural movement and appearance. Belotero® can be used to treat chin wrinkles, nasolabial folds, smile lines, vertical lip lines, and corner lines.

How long do results last?
Results can be immediately seen following a treatment session. Results generally last about six months. Results may vary.
Who is a candidate?
Belotero® is an ideal treatment option for patients looking to immediately improve facial wrinkles and folds. Belotero® is best used for treating fine lines and wrinkles close to the surface of the skin.
What can I expect during a treatment session?
During a treatment session, Belotero® is injected beneath the skin using a fine needle. A topical numbing cream can be applied prior to the injections to minimize any discomfort. Ice and pressure are applied to the treatment site after the injection to further reduce any chance of bruising at the injection site. Treatment sessions typically take about 15 to 20 minutes, though the length of a treatment session depends on the number of areas being treated.
What can I expect post-treatment?
There is no downtime associated with Belotero® injections, most patients are able to immediately return to normal activities. You may experience some minor swelling at the injection site; the swelling usually subsides within one to two hours following the treatment. Other potential side effects can include temporary redness, swelling, or bruising. All patients who receive injectable treatments at Chernoff Cosmetic Surgery are seen a week after treatment to ensure they are satisfied with their results.
