As we age, our skin inevitably loses its youthful appearance as the production of natural dermal volumisers and moisturisers diminish, leaving lines and wrinkles where our skin was once youthful, even and radiant. Belotero® is a unique dermal filler that seamlessly integrates with your skin and adapts to your facial contours, and therefore plumps and adds volume to your face.
Belotero is an HA dermal filler, made of the same volumising and moisturising component of your skin, so it is the natural choice for reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Belotero instantly improves the appearance of crow’s feet, frown lines, lips, marionette lines and nasolabial folds. When injected, it instantly plumps and adds volume to the areas where it has been lost. Even the finest lines can be treated with confidence with Belotero.
Belotero® is specially designed to integrate into your tissue to provide subtle and even results without disrupting the natural contours of your face, so you can be confident that no one will ever know how you manage to look so refreshed and confident. The Belotero® secret can be your secret too.
In clinical studies, 97% of patients showed a visible improvement after just one treatment with Belotero®.
If you have previously been treated with a dermal filler you will be surprised by the subtlety of the area treated with Belotero®. Unlike other fillers, you are unlikely to feel the implant, but will certainly see the refreshing results.
Belotero is made by Merz Aesthetics, the same folks who bring you Radiesse and Xeomin. Contact us today for an appointment or a free consultation to learn how Merz Aesthetic injectables can change your life!
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT BELOTERO®
Is Belotero permanent?
No. Over time, the HA in Belotero® degrades naturally as your own HA would, giving you the freedom to decide if you want further youthful rejuvenation treatment in the future.
How long does Belotero last?
The effect will depend on the individual and the area that has been treated. In clinical studies 66% of patients continued to show a visible improvement 9 months after a single treatment. Most clients opt for follow-up treatments after 6 to 12 months to maintain a fresh, youthful appearance.
How long does the treatment take?
You will have an initial consultation to discuss your needs and your medical suitability for treatment should be discussed. The procedure usually takes around 20 minutes.
Does it hurt?
By design, Belotero® helps to reduce any discomfort that may be experienced with dermal filler injections because it integrates into your own tissues where other fillers may disrupt the tissue when injected. Injected through a fine needle, Belotero® can be positioned towards the surface of your skin with the confidence that the tissue integration will ensure a smooth evenness of your skin after treatment. Your practitioner may offer you a topical anaesthetic cream if your skin is particularly sensitive. This option should be discussed with your practitioner.
Will the treated area become hard or feel unusual?
Belotero® integrates so readily into your own tissue that unlike other fillers, you are unlikely to feel the implant when you touch the treated area. This is especially important in areas like your lips, where you will want to see the results but not necessarily feel anything different.
How soon can I return to normal activities?
Some patients experience swelling or redness after injection which usually subsides soon after treatment. Some return to work immediately after treatment. As Belotero is applied by injection you may experience a slight bruise, but nothing that a little concealer can’t hide.
