As you age, your skin begins to lose the key components of collagen and elastin, which gives your skin a healthy and radiant appearance. When these components begin to fade, you can start noticing things like fine lines and wrinkles. Luckily, if you are unhappy with the appearance of them there is a solution. Belotero filler can be used to fill in these fine lines and wrinkles.
Belotero is a dermal filler treatment that uses hyaluronic acid, a natural sugar found within your skin, to lessen the appearance of these lines. Hyaluronic acid serves many functions including absorbing water, transporting nutrients, and working as a replenishing agent. When Belotero filler is injected into your fine lines and wrinkles, it melds with the moisture found within your dermis and acts as a sponge. It expands to fill in moderate-to-severe lines and wrinkles.
This treatment is suitable for most people. However, it is not recommended for people with multiple or severe allergies to gram-positive bacterial proteins, or if you have a history of anaphylaxis to have this specific treatment. It is also advised that pregnant or breastfeeding women avoid dermal fills, as well as people with a bleeding disorder or who are on blood thinners. If none of those apply to you, you are an excellent candidate to receive the best results from Belotero.
Belotero treatments are quick and comparatively painless. Your procedure will probably take about an hour from start to finish. To help reduce discomfort, a topical anesthetic is applied to the area you will be receiving the injections. It will take some time for the anesthetic to take effect, but once it does, your clinician will begin to inject the Belotero filler. It is a gel-like substance that is injected through a fine gauge needle. You will see results immediately as the substance enters your skin. There may be minimal visible side effects after the treatment which can include temporary redness, tenderness, swelling, and in some cases, bruising. These side effects are minor and will not in any way prevent you from immediately resuming your usual work or social activities. While the side effects will only last a short time, you can continue to see improvement in your skin from just one injection for 4 to 6 months.
The following are the top benefits from receiving Belotero treatment. If you are interested in receiving this treatment, seek out the services of Fairfax Medical spa who are specialists in corrective skin care.
1. Smooths Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Belotero is injected into the skin to fill in any fine lines or wrinkles your skin may have. This will give your skin a much smoother and more flawless appearance. Belotero is just a filler, so you can achieve these results without having to undergo other more invasive or intense treatments that may cover a larger variety of skin concerns.
2. Leaves Behind a Smooth and Even Surface
Other types of filler can sometimes leave behind unwanted bumps, or even be uneven. Because Belotero filler is one of the lightest formulas of dermal fillers and because it has such a thin compound, it can be injected deep into the skin. This will prevent any bumps or lumpiness forming in the targeted area.
3. Requires Little to No Downtime
The side effects of Belotero treatment are very minimal and may result in some swelling, redness, tenderness, and potentially some bruising. However, these side effects should not last too long and in no way will prevent you from immediately returning to your everyday routine. Some types of filler can come with some downtime because they cause serious swelling and bruising, but choosing a Belotero treatment will allow you to avoid having to worry about scheduling time to heal.
4. Quick and Easy
A Belotero treatment appointment usually only lasts about an hour, and a good amount of that time is simply waiting for the antiseptic to begin to numb the area. The injections themselves do not take very long, depending on how much you are getting.
5. Maintains Normal Movement and Facial Expressions
When people think about getting rid of wrinkles, a lot of times they instantly assume botox is the answer. However, botox gets rid of the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by freezing the muscles. This prevents normal movement of your facial muscles and can result in some unnatural facial expressions. Belotero treatment will not alter the movement of your face in any way because it is simply a filler being added to the skin, it is not trying to change the way your face moves.
