Introducing Belotero. Look Younger In An Instant
Would you like to improve your facial appearance? We have a new cosmetic filler that is great to erase your under eye sagging, hollows, fine lines, and wrinkles.
Belotero is a hyaluronic acid-based injectable cosmetic filler, much like Juvederm or Restylane. FDA approved in 2011, this cosmetic gel can add volume to your skin and give your face a much smoother appearance.
What is Belotero?
New to the market of cosmetic enhancement, Belotero represents a new generation of cosmetic fillers. Like Juvederm, Restylane and Perlane, it’s made with hyaluronic acid, a substance that’s naturally found in the skin. If you add this hyaluronic acid gel under your skin, it will help to “plump” it up, smoothing out those unwanted wrinkles, lines, and indentations. (Great to help erase acne scars.)
Unlike the others, Belotero appears to add this much-needed volume without the risk of granulomas, or “lumps,” forming under the skin. Primarily because this formulation has a softer consistency, integrating better with your existing skin tissue. Also, Belotero doesn’t cause the under-the-skin “blue tinting” that can occur with other fillers when they’re used to treat superficial wrinkles, such as those around the eyes.
Belotero can help to correct many common facial issues associated with aging:
- Periorbital lines (“crow’s feet”) around the eyes
- Perioral lines (“smoker’s lines”) around the mouth and lips
- Vertical glabellar (“frown lines”) lines on the forehead
- Nasolabial folds (“laugh lines”), which run from the nose to the corners of the mouth
- “Marionette” lines, which run from the mouth to the jaw
This cosmetic filler is great to use for lip and cheek augmentation. Belotero can correct small facial depressions caused by acne or minor facial injuries.
How does Belotero Work?
As we age, our skin’s supply of collagen decreases. This can cause your skin become thinner as well as eventually sag. Wrinkles and fine lines start forming. Belotero cosmetic gel replaces some of that lost fullness, giving the treated area of your skin a smoother, more youthful appearance.
The treatment is non-surgical and takes less than 20 minutes. With no downtime, you will be able to return to your regular activities immediately. Some people experience minor mild swelling and redness (and perhaps some itching). These side effects go away within a day or two, although they can last a bit longer when lips have been treated.
