As we age, our skin loses its natural support structure. Though, what makes this process worse is that collagen production begins diminishing. And, thus, wrinkles appear! But, Belotero is here to save the day! What is it? How does it work?

Belotero is a prescription-only injectable dermal filler. According to Merz Aesthetics*, the makers of Belotero, this product “is a hyaluronic acid injectable filler that completely integrates into the skin tissue.”

The United States Food and Drug Administration says about its approval of Belotero that its satisfactory for use in “the mid-to-deep dermis for correction of moderate-to-severe facial wrinkles and folds.” While there are some contraindications, precautions, and warnings, over-all this prescription is cleared in the United States!

Treating Etched-In Fine Lines

“While some fillers are designed to rebuild facial volume and structure, [this product] specifically treats moderate-to-severe etched-in fine lines and wrinkles such as vertical lip fine lines above and around the lips,” says Merz Aesthetics. Yes, smooth skin fades with time, but, with Belotero it’s possible to rejuvenate your look.

A syringe of Belotero can replenish the hyaluronic acid under the skin which diminishes over time. Immediately after injection, you should see improvement in visible lines and wrinkles.

Did You Know?

Did you know that the Cohesive Polydensified Matrix process gives Belotero a smooth, flexible texture, which blends into the natural structure of the skin, gently filling fine lines and, wrinkles. It’s the only filler that uses the CPM process!

Side Effects

When opting for a cosmetic procedure, you should be able to leave the office knowing that this product served you well. And, that’s precisely what Belotero provides! While results may vary, they are definitively visible and long-lasting.

Of course, you shouldn’t use Belotero if you have a history or presence of multiple or severe allergies, including those with a history of anaphylaxis, or if you have allergies to gram-positive bacterial proteins. Laser treatments or chemical peels or any other treatments that affect the skin can increase the risk of infection. Do not use Belotero if you have a skin inflammation or a skin infection. Do not use until the infection is healed. As with all events that involve an injection through the skin, there is a risk of infection.
