What is BELOTERO?
BELOTERO is a prescription injection approved to temporarily smooth out and fill in moderate to severe nasolabial folds (the folds or wrinkles that go from the side of the nose to the corner of the mouth). Belotero is a sterile, bioresorbable, clear, homogeneous gel derived from bacterial fermentation. Belotero’s chemical structure is different from other hyaluronic acid fillers on the market. Its thinner substance has a uniform particle size that is smooth, easy to inject, and naturally spreads within the injection area, leading to more natural results and zero lumpiness.
How its Work
Over time, skin begins to lose naturally-occurring components such as collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid (HA), leaving skin more prone to develop etched-in lines and wrinkles.
BELOTERO is a hyaluronic acid (HA) injectable filler that completely integrates into skin tissue. While some fillers are designed to rebuild facial volume and structure, BELOTERO specifically treats moderate-to-severe etched lines and wrinkles such as vertical lip lines above and around the lips.
Belotero And Facial Rejuvenation
Belotero is FDA-approved for injection into the mid-to-deep dermis to correct facial wrinkles and folds. It’s a top HA filler with immediately visible results. It’s ideal for fine lines close to the skin’s surface, like crow’s feet.
Belotero is often used in conjunction with other fillers when volumizing the face. Certain products work better in other areas, so a combination of products may be used to optimize your facial rejuvenation procedure.
Benefits of Belotero
- Integrates with your skin’s tissue
- Helps smooth your moderate-to-severe etched-in facial lines and wrinkles
- Maintains normal movement and facial expressions
- Feels natural to the touch
- Is a quick, easy treatment that provides immediate, noticeable results
- Blends into the natural structure of your skin
Just one BOTOX® treatment at Utah Body & Soul can give you smoother-looking skin and a more refreshed appearance within minutes. As the most popular nonsurgical treatment in the country, BOTOX® is a favorite for women (and men!) who want to soften wrinkles and look rejuvenated and alert.
BOTOX® is a purified protein that has been used therapeutically for over 15 years to treat a variety of medical conditions. Since 2002, it has been FDA-approved for cosmetic treatments and is most often used to reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
BOTOX® is a type of neuromodulator, which means that it relaxes the muscles responsible for wrinkles. When injected into the appropriate locations, BOTOX® temporarily prevents the nerves from communicating. By blocking this communication, the wrinkle-causing muscles soften rather than contract. This results in smoother, tighter, wrinkle-free skin.
BOTOX® for Wrinkle Prevention
Using BOTOX® to prevent wrinkles is common among those who are starting to see the first signs of aging – such as minor facial expression lines that don’t go away when you stop squinting or furrowing your brow area. These wrinkles, called “dynamic” wrinkles, often first appear as fine lines around the eyes, between the eyebrows, or on the forehead. Dynamic wrinkles form when you smile, squint, or frown and they get deeper over time with ongoing muscle activation.
Injecting BOTOX into areas of the face where wrinkles are starting to develop relaxes the muscles and prevents the movements that etch lines into the skin. This prevents early-stage wrinkles from becoming more pronounced (and more difficult to treat). Regular BOTOX® injections not only soften existing wrinkles — they can keep new ones from forming.

JUVÉDERM is one of the easiest and most effective ways to refresh your appearance. JUVÉDERM is used to fill out lines and wrinkles, smooth acne scars, lift sunken cheeks, and enhance your lip size and shape. It’s the most frequently chosen injectable filler for the lips because of its smooth gel formula.
JUVÉDERM contains hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found in the body, and lidocaine, which is a mild numbing medication. Lidocaine is included to minimize injection pain and ensure your procedure is as comfortable as possible.
When treating wrinkles or folds, tiny amounts of JUVÉDERM are injected into the skin with a very fine needle. The injected gel produces natural volume that lifts skin and smoothes out wrinkles. The results can be seen immediately and typically last about a year depending on the amount used and the area treated.
JUVÉDERM adds volume to the face and reduces the appearance of facial creases. As skin ages, its hyaluronic acid content decreases resulting in cheek hollowing of the cheeks,vertical lines around the mouth, and thinning lips. By adding hyaluronic acid back into the skin with JUVÉDERM you can restore youthful facial contours and soften the look of wrinkles.
Some people wish to add subtle volume to their lips, while others may want to soften the appearance of the vertical lines above them. These lines are often caused by sun exposure and repeated muscle movement. Fortunately, there’s Juvederm Volbella. Volbella is the first and only FDA-approved filler proven to increase lip fullness, and correct and soften perioral lines, (lipstick lines) for up to 1 year.
Vollure is the newest dermal filler in the Allergan family. It is FDA-indicated to treat the nasolabial folds (smile lines) for up to 18 months. Vollure is injected into moderate-to-severe facial wrinkles and folds, including “parentheses lines” around the nose and mouth. Vollure is designed to temporarily correct facial wrinkles for a smoother appearance to the face.
Kybella is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment that destroys fat cells below the jawline in order to improve your profile by minimizing the appearance of a double chin
A cost-effective alternative to liposuction, Kybella can help you achieve similar results without surgery and with minimal downtime.
How does KYBELLA eliminate a double chin?
Kybella contains a patented synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. Once injected into the fat, Kybella destroys fat cells.
How is KYBELLA administered?
You’ll receive multiple small injections in the treatment area. Boundaries are drawn to mark the treatment area. Next, 10-30 shots are given with a small needle. The dosing and number of shots is customized for each patient. The injection process usually takes about 15-20 minutes.
How many treatments are needed with KYBELLA?
Since everyone’s chin profile is different, the number of treatments varies from patient to patient. Most patients treated with Kybella experience visible contouring of their chin profile in 2-4 treatments. Some patients may require up to 6 treatments to achieve the desired results. Unlike most other cosmetic injectables, results from Kybella appear to be very long lasting. Kybella treatments should be done at least one month apart.
What is the downtime with KYBELLA?
For most patients, downtime is minimal and occurs most commonly after the first treatment session. Minimal bruising, pain, numbness, redness, and areas of hardness in the treatment area can occur for the week following the procedure. Downtime seems to be decreased with subsequent treatments.
KYBELLA may be right for you if:
- You’re unhappy, self-conscious, or embarrassed by fat under the chin (submental fullness).
- You feel the condition makes you look older or heavier than you actually are
- You don’t want to have surgery
- You eat well and exercise, but submental fullness does not go away

What Is Sculptra Aesthetic?
Address an underlying cause of facial aging, not just the symptoms
Address the underlying cause of facial aging, not just the symptoms with Sculptra Aesthetic. Sculptra is an FDA-approved injectable that contains poly-L-lactic acid. Poly-L-lactic acid differs from the HA typically used in fillers because it encourages your skin to produce new collagen — an important building block of youthful skin. By helping your skin create more collagen protein, Sculptra harmonizes facial volume so that you look younger and actually helps your skin act younger.
Why should you choose Sculptra Aesthetic?
Real results that last
Not all treatments or injectables are created the same. Some target different areas of the face to produce different effects. When you want a long-lasting dermal filler, Sculptra is an excellent option. Sculptra’s collagen-stimulating injectable treatment helps to restore facial volume and fill in wrinkles and folds over time, while helping the body produce more of its own youthful collagen proteins. Results appear within a couple days and can last up to two years.
Benefits of Sculptra
- Long lasting results (2 years or more)
- Enhanced collagen production
- Improved skin quality
- Better skin structure
- Progressive, natural-appearing results
- Replenished skin volume
Who can have Sculptra?

- Restore & replenish volume to sunken cheeks
- Minimize under-eye hollowing
- Soften the look of smile lines
- Enhance their appearance gradually and naturally
- Improve shallow to deep facial folds and creases
Your Sculptra treatment
Sculptra treatments only take a few minutes to perform. Sculptra is injected under the dermis using a thin needle in a brief process that’s well-tolerated by most patients. Common side effects of Sculptra include redness, swelling, or soreness at the injection site, and possible bruising.
