Aging affects the skin, and at some point, wrinkle creams won’t deliver the kind of results you’re hoping for. When that time comes, you need something more powerful, and we have just the thing. At eSSe Plastic Surgery in Fort Lauderdale, FL, we offer Belotero, a cosmetic injectable that delivers anti-aging results after just one treatment. You will get beautiful, smooth skin, increased collagen production, and you’ll be one step closer to the fountain of youth.
What Is Belotero Used For?
Belotero is a cosmetic injectable designed to smooth moderate to severe wrinkles, lines, folds, and creases that form on the face due to volume loss. As the aging process occurs, the body produces less collagen and elastin, resulting in the most noticeable and visible signs of aging. This injectable can treat volume loss, sagging and thinning skin, and drooping.
Treating the Signs of Aging
This injectable helps fight the signs of aging by temporarily restoring volume to the skin. Injectors can use this injectable to treat mild, moderate, and severe wrinkles and the signs of aging by adjusting the dosage as needed. It is designed to treat and improve the appearance of wrinkles that form on the lower half of the face due to volume loss, including nasal labial folds, chin wrinkles, smile lines, lines that form at the corners of the mouth, and vertical lip lines.
Enhancing the Features
If you want to add definition to your cheeks or enhance your lips through augmentation, this filler can give you the features you may not have been born with but have always wanted.
What Is Belotero?
Belotero Balance is a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler formulated with a specialized and unique process. It is composed of a smooth and flexible gel formulation that blends seamlessly into the skin’s natural structure. It gently yet effectively smoothes fine lines and wrinkles by seamlessly integrating with the skin’s structure and adding volume from the inside out.
How Does It Work?
This cosmetic injectable uses a synthetic form of hyaluronic acid, a substance the body produces naturally to keep the skin smooth and supple. Your skin still needs adequate amounts of hyaluronic acid regardless of your age, but as you age, your body produces less hyaluronic acid, resulting in volume loss and hollowness. This injectable replaces the necessary hyaluronic acid content below the skin’s surface to make it firmer and smoother.
This formula closely resembles what the body creates, so it blends seamlessly into the skin’s foundation. It also keeps your skin looking hydrated and fresh yet still allows you to maintain expressions and your appearance.
The Belotero Difference
This particular dermal filler contains bio-identical hyaluronic acid particles to moisturize and plump the skin. Since the body cannot distinguish between natural hyaluronic and synthetic hyaluronic acid, this filler can deliver long-lasting results. Its proprietary formula helps men and women of all ages experience youthful skin, increased facial volume, and beautiful, long-lasting results. You will get an increase in confidence, and your skin will glow and radiate youth.
What Areas Can It Treat?
This dermal filler specializes in smoothing wrinkles that form as a result of volume loss. It can add volume to the lips, smooth smile lines around the mouth, and contour the face by increasing volume in areas that have become hollow over time.
Smile lines generally run from the outer corners of the nose to the outer corners of the mouth. They form as a result of volume loss in the mid-facial region. As your face loses volume, your cheeks will become less prominent.
With the aging process comes a decrease in elasticity which results in skin laxity. The skin begins to sag and droop, but this dermal filler can restore volume and lift the skin so that you look fresher and younger. It will help smooth smile lines, whether they are small etched lines or deep, more severe lines.
The Eye Area
The eye area experiences the signs of aging rather quickly because the skin is delicate, and a loss in elastin, collagen, and hyaluronic acid affects this area greatly. If you have lines around your eyes that do not disappear when your face is at rest, this dermal filler can help smooth the area, increase skin firmness, and restore youth.
The lips do not escape the aging process. Lines and wrinkles can appear around the mouth, and lips can thin over time. This dermal filler can smooth perioral lines, which are vertical lip lines around the mouth, and add volume to one or both lips to enhance the features and restore a youthful appearance.
How Long Do Results Last?
Dermal fillers typically provide long-lasting results, and this trusted product is no different. Once injected with this dermal filler, you can expect your results to last anywhere from six to eighteen months based on the treatment area, the amount of filler used, and the severity of your problem areas. Once you notice that your results are looking less noticeable, all you need to do is schedule a follow-up treatment to maintain volume and a youthful appearance.
How Long Will It Take To Notice a Change in Problem Areas?
One of the primary benefits associated with this dermal filler is that it delivers immediate results. You will notice a drastic improvement in the appearance of your problem areas immediately following your initial injection. Your results will only continue to improve within two weeks post-treatment as the ingredients settle below the skin surface.
What Are the Benefits?
This dermal filler does what your topical products cannot. It targets aging at its source and restores volume below the surface of the skin to help erase lines and wrinkles, increase volume, and restore youth. It will make your skin smoother and more elastic, regardless of your numerical age.
Sometimes you can drink more than enough water each day, but your skin still exhibits the signs of aging. Since this dermal filler contains hyaluronic acid as one of its primary ingredients, it will add the necessary hydration below the skin’s surface to help erase those wrinkles and hydrate the skin. It will help restore skin elasticity, increase firmness, and smooth away wrinkles thanks to its high water content.
Since the ingredients found in this dermal filler are bioidentical matches to the substance produced by the body, you won’t have to worry about your body reacting to or rejecting the ingredients. The hyaluronic acid in this dermal filler is completely biodegradable, which means your body will process it and eliminate it from the system over time.
Once injected with this dermal filler, you will still look like yourself but an improved version. This injectable delivers natural-looking results that are subtle and soft but still make you look like your younger self. You won’t look fake or plastic, but you will look years younger.
The Effects Can Be Reversed
If for any reason you want to reverse your results, you can easily do so. An injectable substance called hyaluronidase can reverse the effects of this dermal filler, removing it from the body immediately. Very few patients choose to use this substance to reverse the effects because they love them so much.
Follow-Up Appointments Are Few and Far Between
You won’t have to schedule monthly appointments to maintain your results. Depending on where you use this dermal filler, you will enjoy results that last for at least six months and up to 18 months. Most patients come in for follow-up injections once or twice a year, if that. This cosmetic treatment is convenient and maintainable for even the busiest of individuals.
It’s a Painless Treatment
You won’t have to worry about discomfort during your injection appointment. Each syringe used during treatment contains lidocaine, an anesthetic that creates a mild numbing sensation in the treatment area within just a few seconds. You may feel some pressure as injections are administered, but you won’t feel any pain.
You won’t spend all day in our office getting injected; appointments take less than an hour to complete based on how many areas you choose to treat. Cosmetic injectables are known as lunch break injectables because you can schedule treatments during your lunch break and return to the office in time for your afternoon meeting.
Not only is this treatment effective, but it is safe. It is FDA-approved to smooth away light to more severe wrinkles. You can trust that when you choose this product, you choose one that is highly trusted and known for its ability to safely target and treat the signs of aging without adverse effects.
Treatments Are Fully Customizable
There is no one set amount of product that is injected for every patient. We can administer different doses to different patients and even two different areas of the face on the same patient. The dosage used during treatment entirely depends on the severity of your wrinkles and the type of results you’re looking for. During your initial consultation, we will develop a treatment plan and explain the dosage, so you know exactly what to expect on the day of your appointment.
Am I a Candidate?
If you want to reverse the signs of aging with a quick and simple treatment, you may be an ideal candidate for this cosmetic injectable. The best candidates for this treatment are willing to commit to a maintenance schedule to maintain results, are healthy adults who want to restore youth, and do not have any allergies to the ingredients in this injectable. The best way to determine if Belotero is right for you is through an initial consultation with our experts.
During this consultation, we will walk you through the treatment process, help you understand exactly what to expect during injections, and give you an idea of what type of results you can expect based on your problem areas. We will also take every measure possible to confirm that this is a safe and effective choice that will give you the results you’re looking for and help you meet all of your aesthetic goals.
Who Doesn’t Qualify for Treatment?
Some patients will not qualify for treatment, including those with an active skin infection in the treatment area, pregnant or nursing women, and those with an allergy to lidocaine.
