Belotero® is the latest and most advanced injectable dermal filler on the market today to restore youthfulness to your face. Garcia Facial Plastic Surgery is one of the few and exclusive facilities that provides Belotero® to residents of Jacksonville, Ponte Vedra Beach, Orange Park, Lakeside and nearby areas in North Florida. This specialized treatment diminishes folds and wrinkles around the mouth and nose by stimulating the natural hydration process in your skin.
What Is Belotero®?
Belotero® is an FDA-approved injectable filler that restores a youthful appearance by diminishing the wrinkles, folds and creases around the area of the mouth and nose. Belotero® contains hyaluronic acid, a substance produced naturally in the body that binds with the water to improve skin hydration. Belotero® enhances and promotes the natural hydration process in your own skin to gradually restore volume and smoothness. Lines and wrinkles gradually disappear naturally as your skin becomes more hydrated over time.
How Much Does Belotero® Cost in Jacksonville?
Belotero® is considered an elective cosmetic procedure, so most health insurers will not cover the costs. At Garcia Facial Plastic Surgery, we offer financing to keep treatments affordable for all our patients. Our office accepts credit cards, personal checks and cash as forms of payment.
What are Benefits of Belotero®?
Belotero® diminishes the appearance of creases, fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth and nose. This product is ideal for individuals who want to promote their skin’s own natural hydration process through a minimally invasive procedure that produces natural-looking results. The benefits of Belotero® include:
- Does not affect normal facial expressions and movement.
- Delivers immediate, visible results.
- Diminishes facial creases, folds, lines, and wrinkles.

Am I a Good Candidate for Belotero®?
Individuals who want to eliminate stubborn, etched-in lines, folds, creases and wrinkles around the mouth and nose may be ideal candidates for Belotero® injections. The treatment significantly improves skin volume in people who have visible skin damage resulting from excessive exposure to the sun and smoking. Belotero® treatment is not recommended for individuals who have numerous or severe allergies that may cause anaphylaxis, or people who are allergic to gram-positive bacterial proteins.
How Should I Prepare for Belotero®?
Please inform our staff if you are taking any medications prior to your consultation. We particularly need to know if you are taking medications that affect blood clotting, such as aspirin, blood thinners or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, or medicines that affect your immune system. Also, inform our staff if you are having a skin irritation or reaction, such as cold sores, cysts, hives, infections, pimples or rashes, as treatment may need to be postponed until the irritation or reaction passes.
How Is Belotero® Administered?
Belotero® is injected using a very fine-gauge needle. The treatment area may be numbed using a topical anesthetic before the procedure if you need several injections. Our aesthetician will carefully select the specific injection sites that will achieve the most flattering, natural-looking results possible.
Noticeable improvement in the luminosity and volume of your skin will be immediately visible after the injections. You will see an immediate reduction in lines, creases and wrinkles. As the hyaluronic acid continues to attract water, your skin’s own hydration function will further reduce visible lines and wrinkles. Although many patients only require one Belotero® treatment, some may choose a follow-up treatment in six months to further smooth the lines and wrinkles around the mouth and nose.
