In terms of dermal fillers, Belotero injections are often considered an introductory treatment for those who are new to skin rejuvenation processes. Belotero is a thinner, less extreme treatment option than other big-name dermal injections, and is used to treat fine lines around the eyes and mouth.
What is Belotero?
Belotero is an injectable filler that is made from hyaluronic acid. This is the same acid that is naturally created by your body to absorb water and spur new collagen growth. Thus, it is a non-toxic injection made from chemicals that are already present. The acid is slightly diluted so it can be injected into the thin muscles around your face and spread beneath the surface to achieve results.
How it Works
Once the Belotero filler is injected, you will see immediate results at the injection site. Your skin will appear fuller and will retain more moisture. In addition, as time goes on, your body will continue to generate new collagen at the injection site, naturally restoring the health of your skin on an ongoing basis.
Since Belotero is the lightest dermal filler on the market, it is typically used in small areas like around the eyes and mouth where small creases have formed, whereas heavier options may be more effective for deep creases in the forehead and around the chin.
Typically you will see immediate results with no downtime following your Belotero treatment. Your body will naturally work to improve those results as the hyaluronic acid is absorbed. Those results will last up to six months before you need another injection.
For most people, two injections per year are enough to maintain their results. As your body becomes accustomed to producing more collagen naturally, you may need smaller doses over time.
If you are considering dermal fillers for the fine lines around your eyes and mouth, Belotero may be the right option for you. Your doctor will determine the best strength and application of your dermal fillers to achieve the desired result, and may choose to use Belotero along with other fillers to treat both fine and deep creases.
