BELOTERO

Vennemeyer frown line surgeryBelotero is designed to be used very close the surface of the skin. It is a fantastic filler for superficial wrinkles or lines in the face. It also works incredibly well for the tear trough area or hollow upper eyelids.

What is Belotero?

Belotero is a hyaluronic acid (HA) based filler. It is made of the same basic molecule as Voluma, Restylane and Juvederm. It is designed to be used very close the surface of the skin. It is very soft and spreads easily, helping avoid lumps or irregularities. This makes it a fantastic filler for superficial wrinkles or lines in the face. It also works incredibly well for the tear trough area or hollow upper eyelids.

How does Belotero work?

Belotero is injected into the skin very close to the surface to treat the lines and wrinkles for a smoother result than most other fillers can achieve. Dr. Vennemeyer uses numbing cream to make the procedure comfortable. Belotero is then injected in very small quantities and massaged. This process is repeated to build thin layers of product until lines are erased or significantly reduced.

When is Belotero used?

Smile Lines, Frown Lines: Belotero is perfect for smile lines around the eyes and mouth. Dr. Vennemeyer often uses Belotero to improve the corners of the mouth that get a down-turned appearance with aging. It also works very well on lip lines, sometimes called “smoker’s lines.”

Eyes and Eyelids: There are very few fillers that work well around the eyes. Belotero is among the best for tear troughs—the creases that form under the eyes extending downwards and outwards. Belotero also works remarkably well for filling the upper eyelids. Many people lose volume in the upper eyelids with aging and develop a hollow appearance to their eyes. Some people get this appearance after too much fat is removed in an upper eyelid lift. Dr. Vennemeyer is skilled at using fillers around the eyes, considered a challenging area. He often fixes bad results from other less experienced injectors.

What are the advantages?

Belotero injection is a minimally invasive procedure without much down time. Its unique properties make it the perfect filler for superficial lines, around the eyes and around the mouth.

What are the disadvantages of Belotero?

The biggest disadvantage to Belotero is that it does not last as long as other fillers in most areas of the face. Superficial lines around the mouth typically need a touch up within 3 months, but then the effects tend to last longer. Tear trough injection results last closer to 6 months after the first injection and often last 9-12 months after the touch up treatment.

What are potential side effects of Belotero?

Mild bruising and swelling are common, but can usually be disguised with cover up. Infection and severe or prolonged swelling are rare.

What is the typical recovery time?

You can return to your regular activities immediately after a Belotero injection. We recommend that you avoid strenuous exercise or heavy lifting for 24 hours to avoid excessive bruising or swelling. Mild swelling may be apparent for a week or two after injection around the eyes.

Botox and Fillers might seem to have similar applications but often there is a best application for your particular situation. Please do your research and consult with Dr. Vennemeyer before you commit to a specific approach.

BOTOX

Botox is most commonly used between the eyebrows to treat "11" lines, but can also be used to improve smile lines, forehead lines and marionette lines. Botox has many applications but, by far, the most common is Botox for cosmetic treatments to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles. Read on for answers to some of the most common questions we get for Botox.

Botox - Common Questions

What is it

Botox is a medicine that relaxes the facial muscles that cause wrinkles to help you look younger and more refreshed. It smooths the skin in areas of facial expression around your eyes, between your eyebrows (11 lines) and forehead lines.

How does it work

Botox reduces wrinkles caused by folding of the skin during facial expressions. These wrinkles caused by facial movements are called “dynamic” wrinkles. Dr. Vennemeyer injects Botox very precisely into the specific muscles to relax them. It takes several days for the medicine to begin working. Significant effect from the Botox is evident at about 5-7 days after treatment. The effects of Botox last about 3-4 months.

When is it used

The most popular area to use Botox is between the eyebrows (glabella) to treat frown lines or “11 lines.” This is great for people who look like they are angry or frustrated all the time, making them look happier. It has also been shown to improve mood and reduce depression. The effect is the same mechanism that causes you to feel better when you force yourself to smile. This tricks your brain into releasing feel-good chemicals, helping you look and feel happier!

Botox reduces squint or smile lines around the eyes and has the effect of opening up the eyes for a brighter look. This effect can be complemented by Botox under the tail of the eyebrows which can improve the arch of the brow, open up the eyes further and give a mild brow lifting effect.

Dr. Vennemeyer frequently treats the forehead with Botox to smooth out lines. He generally recommends relaxing the central and upper forehead, keeping some muscle working above the eyebrows to keep the brows elevated and youthful looking.

What are the advantages

Botox is a very easy procedure that you can have during a lunch break and then return to work. Dr. Vennemeyer is known for being a skilled injector, making treatments very comfortable for patients. With a knowledgeable professional like Dr. Vennemeyer, there is a very low risk of side effects.

What are the disadvantages

Botox has few disadvantages. The most common complaint is that it only lasts 3 months—patients wish the effects were permanent. The best way to avoid losing the benefits of your Botox is to schedule your treatments with Dr. Vennemeyer every 3 months to avoid it wearing off.

What are potential side effects

Botox is very safe. The most common side effect is very mild bruising, but most of our patients do not bruise. Dr. Vennemeyer reduces this risk by pre-icing the skin. This also makes the treatment more comfortable, especially when combined with use of the special, extra thin needles at Vennemeyer Plastic Surgery (smaller than the needles used by the vast majority of injectors).

Mild swelling at the Botox injection site is typical for 10 minutes after the treatment. Like any medication, the list of potential side effects is extensive. In reality, we see very few. A small number of people report mild headaches, weakness or flu-like symptoms for a few days after injections.

Because it is a muscle relaxer, Botox should not be used in people who have neurologic conditions that cause muscle weakness.

What is the typical recovery time

You can go back to your regular activities soon after Botox treatments. You can meet friends, go out to dinner, go shopping the same day. We recommend not laying flat for 4 hours after injections to avoid the medicine spreading too far. Also, avoid strenuous exercise for at least 12 hours to reduce your risk of bruising, swelling and excessive spread of the medicine.

Botox and Fillers might seem to have similar applications but often there is a best application for your particular situation. Please do your research and consult with Dr. Vennemeyer before you commit to a specific approach.
