Belotero: An Effective Facial Filler
With age, the skin loses its youthful appearance as the production of natural dermal volumizers and moisturizers such as hyaluronic acid diminishes. This leads to the formation of age lines and wrinkles.
These issues can be taken care of with the help of Belotero. Belotero is among the only three hyaluronic-acid dermal-filler brands approved by the FDA.
Belotero works to smooth away moderate to severe wrinkles and folds. This injectable can be used to smooth away the lines around your mouth and lips and even enhance your lip size conservatively. Fine lines can also be treated confidently with Belotero.
Once injected into the dermis, Belotero evenly integrates with your dermal tissues and discreetly enhances your facial contours. It rehydrates your skin for a radiant appearance.
How It Works
Belotero is a natural choice for reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles, as it is made of a synthetic version of hyaluronic acid. Restoring the volumizing and moisturizing component of your skin works to instantly add volume, easing away the lines.
The concentration and cross-linking of the hyaluronic acid allows it to integrate into the upper dermis of the skin without resulting in excessive swelling.
Belotero has been specially created to integrate into your tissues, thereby providing subtle and even results without negatively affecting the natural contours of your face. 97% of patients in a clinical trial showed visible improvement after just one treatment of Belotero.
A Very Safe Filler
Belotero’s FDA approval is a testament to its safety and efficacy. The HA in Belotero degrades naturally over time as your own HA would, allowing you to decide whether you want to go in for further filler treatments in the future.
The duration of Belotero’s effects usually depends on the individual and the area that has been treated. About 66% of patients continued to show visible improvements nine months from a single treatment, according to clinical studies. Most clients are reported to prefer follow-up treatments after six to twelve months in order to maintain their fresh and youthful appearance.
The procedure takes approximately 20 minutes to be performed and is quite simple. A topical anesthetic can be administered at the start if your skin is particularly sensitive; this will numb the treatment area for a time.
Belotero is injected through a fine needle and is deposited towards the surface of the skin. The tissue integration will warrant a smooth evenness to your skin after treatment. Some swelling or redness may be experienced, which will soon subside.
