The Benefits of Belotero
Creases, lines, loss of volume and wrinkles are just a few of the oldest age-related conditions. They have traditionally required invasive surgeries that leave scars and other undesirable side effects.
Liquid facelifts represent cutting-edge, non-invasive treatments for these problems. Belotero is one such type of non-invasive dermal filler that can add fullness back to your face while treating imperfections residing within the hypodermis layer of your skin.
Let’s explore the benefits of Belotero to understand how and why this method of treatment may be far more preferable than traditional approaches.
Understanding Belotero at a Microscopic Level
The first step to understanding what makes Belotero great requires you to understand how your own skin works.
There are three layers to your skin: the epidermis, the dermis and the hypodermis. The latter is the layer that gives your skin most of its form by utilizing collagen to act as a durable base for your skin.
As your skin ages, this collagen dislodges due to muscle movements and old age.
The main ingredient in Belotero, hyaluronic acid, works to fill the gaps created in the hypodermis layer. This naturally occurring chemical is the same one that keeps the skin of babies soft by attracting water, which is a vital component in forming dense collagen formations.
The versatility of Belotero as a cosmetic treatment
The greatest strength of Belotero is its ability to work with the body. It lacks chemicals that can cause unwanted bumps while still having the durability and biocompatibility to create amazing results.
It can be used to make lips fuller, address nasolabial folds, realign the nose, correct drooping eyebrows, and treat fine lines throughout the entire face. It can even reduce the appearance of hollow under-eye circles and certain scars, such as those associated with acne.
The volumizing effect of Belotero improves as it settles within your skin. More water attracts, which in turn fosters the growth of more collagen.
A new degree in safety for cosmetic procedures
Belotero’s active ingredient also makes it one of the safest dermal fillers available. Any undesirable side effects tend to subside within a few days of receiving injections.
The most common side effect is some swelling or tenderness at the site of the injection. This tends to subside within a day or two.
Pain is a rare side effect. If you happen to experience any, then consult with your dermatological care provider immediately.
Belotero: A Treatment for Many Age-Old Problems
Belotero represents a cutting-edge way to safely treat problems that have been apparent since the beginning of human history. It can be used alone or paired with other injectables, which includes collagen stimulators and neuromodulators, to provide even better results.
