The ideal candidate for Belotero® injections is looking to reduce the appearance of moderate to severe wrinkles around the nose and mouth and plump up areas with minor skin depression and fat loss. Patients looking to fill more deeply set lines may better benefit from alternative options. However, treatment results are evident on all skin colors and types.

There are some limitations to the treatment. Belotero® should not be used by patients who have a history of multiple or severe allergies. Any skin inflammations or infections such as cold sores or rashes must be completely healed prior to administration. Patients taking medicines that affect blood clot formation or the immune system may need to look into alternatives, as well.
