FDA Approves New Dermal Filler: Belotero from Merz

Merz Aesthetics has scored a two-fer with the FDA recently.  They’ve just announced that their newest hyaluronic acid filler, Belotero, has been approved by the FDA for the correction of moderate-to-severe wrinkles, such as the nasolabial folds.  Like most hyaluronic acid fillers, Belotero scored well when compared to traditional bovine collagen injections.  Some physicians believe that Belotero is better at treating superficial lines and wrinkles when compared to the other popular hyaluronic acid fillers on the market today.

The other big FDA approval for Merz Aesthetics was Xeomin, the latest Botox competitor.  You can read about Xeomin here.

Although recently FDA-approved, most plastic surgeons and dermatologists don’t carry Belotero yet.   For more on Belotero, click here.
