As your skin begins to age, it loses vital moisture. Fine lines and creases begin to appear, skin loses volume, and jowls and sagging skin appear, or a gaunt, hollowed look. Restoring facial volume with Belotero injections can help you reclaim your youthful appearance, giving your skin a more youthful, fresh, supple quality.
What is Belotero?
Not all cosmetic injectables are created equal. While some are used to halt the formation of lines and wrinkles through temporary paralysis of facial muscles, others are used to rebuild the underlying structure of your face and restore moisture. Belotero is part of the family of cosmetic injectables known as dermal fillers. Made of hyaluronic acid, one of the building blocks of your skin, Belotero helps to fill lines and creases, and restore the underlying scaffolding of your skin to produce a smoother, firmer look.
How is Belotero used?
Injection of dermal fillers is as much technical experience as it is eye for facial symmetry. In Dr. Merriman’s apt hands, Belotero can be used to revitalize areas of the face which appear aged and tired, restoring a more youthful appearance. Dr. Merriman will first assess your own unique needs to volume restoration, before making a recommendation of which products should be used and where you can most benefit from their injection. She will then carefully inject Belotero in measured doses, ensuring that the quantity is correct, so your enhancement appears natural. What you’re left with is a smoother, more alluring facial look – along with a boost to your self-esteem.
What areas can be treated with Belotero?
Belotero is designed to flawlessly integrate with your natural facial contours, leaving you with natural-looking results. It has a soft gel consistency that is meant to give you subtle, smooth enhancement. Belotero can be used to refresh many areas of the face including:
- Nasolabial folds
- Under the eyes
- Forehead creases
- Sunken cheeks
Is there any recovery time associated with Belotero injections?
No. Because Belotero is considered to be non-invasive there is no downtime associated with its injection. Your treatment can be completed in as little as 30 minutes, an enhancement you can receive during your lunch break. You may experience slight redness, tenderness, or bruising following treatment, which fades within hours, or a few days at most. With Belotero, your results will be noticeable immediately and are long-lasting – up to 18 months in for many people.
