Belotero® in Santa Barbara, CA
Lines and wrinkles around the mouth are some of the first signs of aging. To diminish these imperfections, Sara Yegiyants, MD, FACS, a triple board-certified plastic surgeon, uses Belotero® on people living in and around Santa Barbara, Santa Maria, and Ventura, CA, to smooth their complexion and maintain a youthful appearance.
What is Belotero®?
Belotero® is a dermal filler that treats several skin imperfections from minimizing wrinkles, lines and folds to adding volume to the lips. This filler contains hyaluronic acid (HA), a natural substance found in the body that binds water to the skin. As people age, the amount of HA produced starts to dwindle. When injecting Belotero®, the skin’s volume increases to smooth out the imperfections.
Why Choose Belotero®?
Belotero® treats a myriad of facial imperfections. Its advantage is that it is an excellent option at treating superficial lines and wrinkles. The results are natural looking to reveal a fresher, brighter appearance.
Who is a Good Candidate for Belotero®?
Anyone wanting to treat and diminish the lines, wrinkles and other imperfections that appear with age is a good candidate for Belotero®. The best way to determine if Belotero® is the best option to treat specific issues is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Yegiyants for a skin evaluation.
How is Belotero® Administered?
Belotero® is injected into the outer layers of skin on the targeted area. Once it is injected, the area may be massaged to ensure the gel filler is evenly spread. To prevent any discomfort, a topical numbing cream may be applied. The entire treatment takes no more than 30 minutes to complete with no downtime. People may return to their daily routine immediately following the treatment.
When Will I See the Results from Belotero®?
With Belotero®, the results are immediate and fully reveal themselves within a few days as any redness and slight swelling at the injection sites go away. The best part is that the results may last between six months and a year. Dr. Yegiyants combines the skill as a plastic surgeon with the artistic ability to achieve a naturally rejuvenated appearance.
How Much Does Belotero® Cost in Santa Barbara?
The cost of Belotero® varies with each patient as it depends on the number of areas to be treated, as well as how many injections are required and whether other treatments are done at the same time. During a consultation, Dr. Yegiyants reviews the costs with each patient based on their customized treatment plan.
