As your skin begins to age, it loses vital moisture. Fine lines and creases begin to appear, skin loses volume, and jowls and sagging skin appear, or a gaunt, hollowed look. Restoring facial volume with Belotero injections can help you reclaim your youthful appearance, giving your skin a more youthful, fresh, supple quality.

What is Belotero?

Not all cosmetic injectables are created equal. While some are used to halt the formation of lines and wrinkles through temporary paralysis of facial muscles, others are used to rebuild the underlying structure of your face and restore moisture. Belotero is part of the family of cosmetic injectables known as dermal fillers. Made of hyaluronic acid, one of the building blocks of your skin, Belotero helps to fill lines and creases, and restore the underlying scaffolding of your skin to produce a smoother, firmer look.

How is Belotero used?

Injection of dermal fillers is as much technical experience as it is eye for facial symmetry. In Dr. Merriman’s apt hands, Belotero can be used to revitalize areas of the face which appear aged and tired, restoring a more youthful appearance. Dr. Merriman will first assess your own unique needs to volume restoration, before making a recommendation of which products should be used and where you can most benefit from their injection. She will then carefully inject Belotero in measured doses, ensuring that the quantity is correct, so your enhancement appears natural. What you’re left with is a smoother, more alluring facial look – along with a boost to your self-esteem.

What areas can be treated with Belotero?

Belotero is designed to flawlessly integrate with your natural facial contours, leaving you with natural-looking results. It has a soft gel consistency that is meant to give you subtle, smooth enhancement. Belotero can be used to refresh many areas of the face including:

  • Nasolabial folds
  • Under the eyes
  • Forehead creases
  • Sunken cheeks
  • Jawline
  • Lips

Is there any recovery time associated with Belotero injections?

No. Because Belotero is considered to be non-invasive there is no downtime associated with its injection. Your treatment can be completed in as little as 30 minutes, an enhancement you can receive during your lunch break. You may experience slight redness, tenderness, or bruising following treatment, which fades within hours, or a few days at most. With Belotero, your results will be noticeable immediately and are long-lasting – up to 18 months in for many people.

You will be treated with professionalism, kindness, and exceptional skill.

Our Plan for Resuming In-Office Patient Care

We are pleased to annouce our very soft re-opening to patients this Monday, May 4th. We are not opening to full capacity as we are closely following the recommendations of the American Society of Plastic Surgery and our numerous professional affiliations and governing boards. We will be seeing a very limited number of patients per day. The following outlines our plan and what we are doing to keep you safe.


You will be called the day before your appointment and screened for any symptoms. Any symptoms will require rescheduling.

Upon your arrival your temperature will be taken and you will be asked to rescheduled if over 100.0.

You must wear a mask upon entering the building and will only remove if getting a procedure done on the face. We ask that you please bring a mask to your appointment. Due to limited availability we will provide a mask to you for a charge of $5.

No one can accompany you into the office unless there are significant mobility or communication issues you need help with and in that case only one person can come with you. You may not bring children to your appointment.

Our waiting room is closed. You may enter the building to check in and gather any paperwork you may require and return to your car. You will be called when your room is ready.

Office Safety and Sanitation

Employees will also complete a daily questionnaire and have their temperature taken and will be sent home if there are any symptoms. Employees will wear personal protective equipment throughout your entire visit.

Each room and all areas that patients and employees touch including office supplies or equipment will be sanitized thoroughly between patients according to CDC guidelines.

We have missed you and look forward to seeing you back in the office!
