As we age, our skin inevitably loses its youthful appearance as the production of natural dermal volumisers and moisturisers such as hyaluronic acid (HA) diminish, leaving lines and wrinkles where our skin once was youthful, even and radiant. Today, the signs and symptoms of the natural ageing process can be reduced by replacing lost hyaluronic acid.
Belotero® range offers an extended range for smoothing and filling wrinkles,
lip augmentation, restoring facial volumes and rehydrating skin.
Belotero has the best results on those who seek to improve the appearance of moderate to severe lines and wrinkles around the mouth. Specifically, Belotero is effective in treating the following unwanted lines:
- Nasolabial folds (the lines that run between the corners of the nose and mouth)
- Vertical lip lines
- Corner lines
- Smile lines
- Chin wrinkles
Treatments and Procedure
Belotero treatments are safe and relatively painless. Usually, the physician applies a topical anesthetic to prevent any discomfort. A very fine needle is used to administer the injections, and the procedure usually takes anywhere from 10 to 45 minutes.
Some patients may experience mild side effects such as slight irritation, swelling, redness, or bruising. These effects should fade within a few days. In most cases, there is little to no downtime for recovery, and patients can resume their normal activities immediately after treatment.
As with any treatment, results may vary, but in most cases patients will notice an immediate smoothing in lines and wrinkles. The results generally last around six months, and patients may then repeat treatment to maintain optimal results.
