A large number of people fear the idea of aging and the effects it can have on the body. It is, however, an inevitability that we must face because there is no way to stop the process. What we can do is eliminate the visible signs of aging such as wrinkles and fine lines. This can help us enjoy our youthful appearance for a while longer. One of the treatments that can help with this is Belotero.
What is Belotero?
Belotero is an injectable gel administered as a prescription injection to fill fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth and the lips. When injected, the gel helps create an appearance that looks more full and smooth. It is a safe and effective treatment option to eliminate the visible signs of aging.
It can be used to smooth out wrinkles and lines that range from moderate to severe. The end results look and feel natural. There is no hindrance to the movement of facial muscles and normal functions are not affected at all. A key advantage of Belotero is that it is easy to administer and it provides noticeable results immediately.
How Belotero Works
When our skin begins to age, it loses components such as hyaluronic acid, elastin, and collagen. The loss of these components leads to the formation of wrinkles and fine lines. The primary component of Belotero is hyaluronic acid and when it is injected, it integrates with the skin tissue and boosts collagen production.
Unlike other fillers on that market that work to improve facial structure and volume, Belotero is specifically designed to improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles, especially those that appear above and around the lips.
Belotero is synthesized using a process known as Cohesive Polydensified Matrix (CPM). This process allows the gel to achieve a smooth and flexible structure. This improves the gel’s ability to integrate with the skin more efficiently. Because of the gel’s ability to integrate with the skin smoothly, you will be able to enjoy a very natural appearance.
Where Can BELOTERO Be Injected?
Belotero is approved by the FDA for application around the mouth area to correct marionette lines, vertical lip lines, and chin lines. The injection can also be applied around the eye’s to get rid of crow’s feet. In addition to that, it can be used to treat the signs of aging in the neck and the eyebrows.
Belotero’s effects are known to last for a period of 6 months or more depending on the individual and various factors. There may be mild swelling or bruising post-treatment. However, this will disappear in a few days. As for pre-treatment preparations, you may be advised to stay away from supplements and medications that cause thinning of the blood. This is to increase your rate of recovery.
