The chances are good that you’ve heard of the dermal filler, Belotero, if you’re concerned about a more youthful appearance. Belotero is made with hyaluronic acid (HA), which is already naturally found in the body. However, we lose it over time, as we grow older. The good news is that it can be replaced and the filler will integrate with your skin’s tissue, leaving your face with a more full, plump, and youthful appearance again. Keep reading to learn more about Belotero and commonly asked questions.
Is it Painful?
Belotero actually helps reduce any discomfort that may be experienced with fillers because it integrates into the tissues of your skin, which is unique from other fillers that might disrupt the tissue. Because of the tissue integration, Belotero is ideal for injections that are very superficial, as the results will be smooth, even after treatment. Any sensation of pain can also be reduced by using lidocaine, which is an anesthetic.
How Will it Feel Post-Treatment?
It’s not very likely that you’ll feel a difference in the impacted area after treatment because Belotero integrates so smoothly into your own tissue.
How Long Does the Treatment Take?
A treatment session itself typically takes about 30 minutes. This doesn’t include the length of a consultation.
How Long Do I Have to Wait Before Resuming Activities?
You should be able to return to your normal daily routine immediately after a Belotero treatment. Some patients experience a little redness or swelling after injection, but it usually goes away soon after treatment.
How Long Will Belotero Last?
It depends on the area treated and the person, but studies have shown that 66 percent of patients still showed visible improvement nine months after a treatment. Most patients follow up with treatment every six to 12 months to keep their youthful, radiant appearance.
