For many men and women all over the world, skin concerns such as wrinkles, deep lines, and facial folds are prominent issues. While there are many surgical options available on the market, not everyone is willing to take the big step toward invasive surgery. Surgery, unlike non-invasive skin treatments, costs far more and requires much more recovery time to heal after treatment. Thankfully, there are alternatives to surgery. These procedures offer the same results and will allow you to get back to your daily activities right away without any downtime. Belotero fillers are injectable dermal fillers that use a hyaluronic acid base. If you are interested in Belotero and want to know how it can benefit your skin, contact us or visit us in Hendersonville, TN. At Impressions Skin Solutions, we offer this FDA-approved filler for the treatment of age-related wrinkles and fine lines.
What Is Belotero?
In 2011, Belotero was approved by the FDA to fill moderate to severe nasolabial folds, better known as laugh lines. Since then, the available product range has expanded and now includes several different types of fillers that are targeted at different areas of concern. If you are interested in using Belotero treatments for your skin concerns, it will be helpful to know what each type of treatment can do for you.
Belotero Balance is a prescription injectable. It has been approved to temporarily fill moderate to severe nasolabial folds and smooth out wrinkles. Nasolabial folds are the lines that run from the side of your nose to the corner of your mouth. Belotero Soft is used for fine lines, while Belotero Volume is used to plump up the cheeks, lips, and nose, and restore volume to the skin. Belotero is a safe option while being highly effective. We also offer Belotero under eye fillers.
Belotero is soft and has a gel-like consistency. Because it contains hyaluronic acid, it binds with the moisture in your skin. This softly and subtly fills in your wrinkles and fine lines. Belotero products containing more volume are effectively used to enlarge your cheeks, lips, and chin.
How Is It Done?
Before your procedure, your medical history will be reviewed. This is a good time to let us know everything about your allergies and the types of medications you have been taking. Belotero products typically contain lidocaine. This is a type of local anesthetic that helps minimize any discomfort. Before your injectable fillers are administered, the treated area will be marked out and cleaned with an antiseptic solution. Hereafter, Belotero will be injected using a fine-gauge needle syringe. A gentle massage will help the filler spread out and achieve a more natural look after the injections are administered. In some cases, touch-up treatments may be necessary after your initial treatment to achieve your desired results.
What Is Hyaluronic Acid?
Hyaluronic acid is the main component that gives your skin structure and is responsible for providing your skin with a hydrated look. Hyaluronic acid is a chemical that is naturally found in your skin. This chemical binds with water to help make the appearance of your skin look smoother and rejuvenated. One of the great advantages of Belotero is that your body will absorb the hyaluronic acid from it over time.
What Areas Does Belotero Target?
Not only has Belotero been approved to treat nasolabial folds, but also wrinkles and fine lines on the cheeks, chin, forehead, and lips. Belotero can fill lines around your nose and mouth. We also provide Belotero under eye fillers to give your face a more youthful appearance.
Belotero – The Aftercare
After having Belotero, you will be surprised to know that results are visible immediately. In addition, you will be able to return to your regular daily activities straight away.
However, there are some recommendations to get the best out of this treatment. You should avoid the following activities for 24 hours after your treatment:
• Excessive heat or sun exposure
• Anti-inflammatory medication and aspirin
• Strenuous exercise
This will enhance your results and allow you to get the best out of your treatment.
How Long Do Belotero Results Last?
The length of the results from each type of Belotero treatment will differ slightly.
• Belotero Balance usually lasts up to 6 months when being used for subtle to moderate lines or lip enhancements.
• Belotero Soft can last up to 12 months when used to treat lip enhancements and fine lines.
• Belotero Intense may last up to 12 months when used for deep lines.
• Belotero Volume lasts up to 18 months when used to add volume to your temples and cheeks.
How Do I Prepare for a Belotero Treatment?
There is not much to be done before your Belotero treatment. It is crucial to let us know about any prescription medication or chronic illnesses during your initial consultation. You may have to avoid taking certain medications, such as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medication, a few days before your procedure. This will ensure that you achieve the results that you desire, and Belotero will be effective and safe for you to use.
