Welcome to the future of skin revitalization: BELOTERO. Here at Eternal Dermatology + Aesthetics in Fulton, MD, we are passionate about introducing innovative, scientifically advanced treatments that help our patients in the Baltimore, MD area rediscover their natural beauty. This journey towards a more youthful appearance is enriched with the expertise of our founding director, Dr. Ife J. Rodney, a renowned dermatologist and dermatopathologist.

Understanding BELOTERO: An Overview

BELOTERO is a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler designed to address various skin concerns, including wrinkles, volume loss, and facial contouring. Unlike other fillers, this one provides seamless integration into the skin due to its unique properties, offering results that are not only effective but also natural-looking.

The Science

This treatment operates on the principle of retaining water at the injection site. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the body that diminishes as we age, contributing to wrinkles and loss of skin elasticity. BELOTERO restores this valuable compound, attracting and binding moisture to plump up the skin, filling in wrinkles and fine lines. It also integrates evenly into your skin tissue, ensuring a smooth and uniform appearance.


BELOTERO’s versatility makes it suitable for a wide range of skin rejuvenation purposes. It can address moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, including nasolabial folds that run from the nose to the corners of the mouth, and fine lines around the lips and eyes. Additionally, this treatment helps restore volume to hollow areas of the face, creating a more youthful and refreshed appearance.


What sets this treatment apart from other dermal fillers is its adaptability. It blends into your existing skin structure, enhancing your natural features without altering your expressions. The effects are instant, and with proper care, can last six months to a year, although individual results may vary.

In-Depth: How Does This Treatment Work?

The transformative effects of this treatment originate from its hyaluronic acid composition. This substance, naturally found in the skin, plays a critical role in maintaining skin hydration and volume. As we age, our skin’s ability to produce hyaluronic acid diminishes, resulting in sagging skin and the formation of wrinkles. This treatment replenishes this lost hyaluronic acid, restoring hydration and enhancing volume.

As the treatment integrates into the dermis, the second layer of the skin, it supports the skin’s structure, effectively smoothing out wrinkles and folds. The hyaluronic acid particles also retain water, which aids in further hydration and plumping, delivering a revitalized and youthful appearance.

Safety and Efficacy

The safety and efficacy of this product have been established through rigorous clinical trials. Side effects are typically mild and transient. Allergic reactions are rare, and the product has been FDA-approved since 2011. However, like all procedures, it is essential to have your treatment administered by a trained professional like Dr. Rodney, ensuring a safe and effective treatment experience.

At Eternal Dermatology + Aesthetics, we take pride in offering treatments that align with our patients’ needs while holding their safety paramount. With BELOTERO, you receive not just an aesthetic enhancement but a boost in confidence, knowing you are in the hands of an expert who prioritizes your well-being and satisfaction.

What to Expect

The process begins with an in-depth consultation with Dr. Rodney. She carefully assesses your skin and discusses your aesthetic goals. The actual procedure involves injecting this product into targeted areas with a fine needle. It’s a quick, in-office procedure, typically lasting 15 to 60 minutes, depending on the areas being treated and how much product is required.

Since this product contains Lidocaine, a local anesthetic, the procedure causes minimal discomfort. You can expect to return to your normal activities immediately after treatment, and the results are natural. No one will know you’ve “had work done” unless you choose to tell them.
