Belotero is one of only 3 hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers approved by the Food and Drug Administration of the United States (FDA) and currently promoted in the UK (Click here to learn more). It is approved to smooth moderate to severe wrinkles and folds1. When injected into the dermis Belotero evenly integrates with your own dermal tissues and discreetly enhances your facial contours for added confidence. Belotero rehydrates for a radiant appearance.
As we age, our skin inevitably loses its youthful appearance as the production of natural dermal volumisers and moisturisers such as hyaluronic acid (HA) diminish, leaving lines and wrinkles where our skin was once youthful, even and radiant.
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.
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.
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.
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 treatment2. Most clients opt for follow-up treatments after 6 to 12 months to maintain a fresh, youthful appearance.
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.
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.
