Sophisticated cosmetic procedures have now made it possible for anyone to enhance their appearance. Procedures are so precise and so effective that the results look very natural and are quite long lasting.
One of the biggest problems with aging is that the skin ages faster than the rest of the body. As this occurs, elasticity declines, causing the skin to sag and wrinkles and lines to form in several areas of the face. This can leave a person looking older and tired.
Belotero is a dermal filler that aims to erase the lines and wrinkles that appear over time. This non-surgical treatment can leave the skin looking smooth and lovely once more.
Belotero: A Hyaluronic-Acid Filler
Many serums and fillers used for skin care are made of synthetic hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is an important substance that aids the healing of the skin. It occurs in the skin tissues naturally.
Belotero belongs to the group of dermal fillers that contain hyaluronic acid. These fillers can be easily absorbed by the skin and can speed up the repair of the damaged skin, restoring volume to treat wrinkles.
There are many options when it comes to choosing a dermal filler. The way that each filler works and the way it helps enhance the health of the skin are the factors that set apart one filler from another.
Belotero is a filler that is perfect for treatment of moderate to severe aging lines. The product, which is in the form of a gel, penetrates the skin and then helps restructure the skin so that the lines are filled.
What to Know About Belotero
• Belotero can be used to correct various types of fine lines and wrinkles, including marionette lines, parentheses lines, the nasolabial folds, and vertical lip lines.
• The Belotero dermal filler fills the lines by restoring the skin’s volume. This restoration of volume occurs because the hyaluronic acid in the filler attracts water molecules. Because of this natural process, the results of the treatment look quite natural.
• The versatility and the effectiveness of the product in handling various types of fine lines and various levels of skin trouble are what make this filler different from other similar options. The treatment is also quite precise.
The Treatment Process
The moment you visit Dr. Kim for a consultation is when your treatment process begins. During the consultation, Dr. Kim evaluates your skin in order to understand the degree of damage to be repaired. A treatment plan is then drafted.
On the date of treatment, the Belotero filler is injected into the facial wrinkles and folds using a fine needle. Given the pain-management procedures followed, there is no discomfort experienced during the procedure.
Once the Belotero has been injected, you can expect the results to appear almost immediately. These results should last for six months or longer. By taking good care of your skin, you can prolong the duration of the effects.
