Tired of wrinkles covering your beautiful face? You may want to consider injectable treatments to help get rid of them. A light dermal filler known as Belotero is a perfect solution. It is composed of non-toxic substances and safe to use in many different types of skin. It is injected under the skin at different levels to smoothen deep wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars, contour the chin & nose, plump up sunken cheeks and temples, and add volume to the lips.

The Belotero Treatment Process

Belotero is ideal for those who want to minimize fine lines around their lips, the corners of the mouth, and jawline. It is often called the “Starter Filler.” Its thinness allows it to be injected closer to the surface of the skin without risking side-effects where thicker fillers may cause bumps, lumps, or a bluish hue.

Belotero is free of adverse side effects. It is made of a naturally occurring chemical in the body known as hyaluronic acid in a synthetic gel form. It absorbs water, delivers nutrients, and acts as a cushioning force in the skin.

Once injected into the skin, it acts like a sponge and expands to fill in wrinkles, folds, and support sunken areas. The extra hydration brought in by the injectable solution will help the skin appear soft and vibrant. The treatment will also help improve collagen production. This will also help to further plump and firm your skin as well as gradually reduce wrinkles.

Belotero is compatible with all skin types and colors. However, the results it offers are subtle in nature. It is recommended that one opt for more extensive treatments like Perlane or Juvederm Ultra Plus for treating deep-set wrinkles.

The belotero treatment is quick and painless. Before starting, an anesthetic is applied to help avoid any comfort issues. After this, the thin gel-like substance is injected into the chosen area using a fine thin needle.

The effects of Belotero are immediately visible. Your skin will look more youthful and continue to improve over time due to the increase in collagen production. On top of this, one injection lasts four to six months, so the user will not require more than 2 treatments a year for sustainable results. The long-term benefits of creating new collagen will decrease the number of visits and doses required.

A Few Things to Remember About the Belotero Treatment

Keep in mind that Belotero should only be administered by a certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon. Don’t try to do it on your own. It is advisable to stay away from Aspirin, Ibuprofen, Vitamin E or St. John’s Wort for a week prior to the Belotero treatment to decrease the risk of bruising. ou should make sure to talk to your doctor about the medications you can and can’t take after the treatment.
