Belotero & Radiesse Q&A

What is Belotero?

Belotero is a hyaluronic acid (HA) injectable filler that completely integrates into the skin tissue and specifically treats moderate-to-severe etched-in lines and wrinkles such as vertical lip lines above and around the lips.  Only Belotero is created using the proprietary Cohesive Polydensified Matrix (CPM) process which produces a smooth, flexible gel that blends into the natural structure of your skin and gently fills stubborn etched-in lines and wrinkles Hyaluronic acid, a popular main component in dermal fillers, is a substance you can find throughout your body. It latches onto water molecules to keep the tissues in your body hydrated and lubricated. Because it’s already natural in your body, your tissues easily absorb fillers like Belotero over time. 

Your cosmetic specialist uses a fine needle to inject Belotero dermal filler in the upper part of your dermis, the second layer of skin from the surface. Once injected, Carrie massages the area around the filler is gently massaged to spread the product and produce a natural-looking result. The number of injections you get depends on the size of your treatment area and the number of areas you want to treat. 

What results can I get with Belotero?

Belotero can make many long-lasting improvements to your facial appearance. The effects are soft and look natural, so people won’t suspect you’ve had work done. Your cosmetic specialist helps you identify your problem areas of concern and define specific goals before your treatment. Belotero can treat:

  • Undereye/Tear Trough Concavity 
  • Forehead wrinkles
  • Lip Lines
  • Thin lips
  • Small acne scars

What is Radiesse?

Radiesse is a dermal filler made of smooth calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres contained in a gel base of sodium carboxymethylcellulose. Used to restore both facial and hand volume, Radiesse can also be used to add definition in facial contouring applications.

Patients see immediate results with Radiesse while enjoying the benefits of a gradual increase in their natural collagen levels over time. 

Can you combine the different injectables?

Many patients at The Rolling Stone MedSpa have two or more types of injectable treatments during a single visit.

For example, Botox or Xeomin can be administered to correct the forehead expression lines, Radiesse to fill in the nasolabial folds, and Belotero to add desired lip volume.

Well-placed Belotero and Radiesse injections can give your facial features more symmetry while improving minor contour irregularities. Multiple factors determine the longevity of the results, but one can expect at least six months or longer. Plus, you can get maintenance injections if you’re happy with the effect.
