In the world of plastic surgery, Belotero Filler is getting a lot of attention. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved this hyaluronic acid-based filler to fill in moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. Fillers made of hyaluronic acid (HA), like Belotero Filler, add volume to the soft tissues of the face. This gets rid of fine lines, wrinkles, and folds on the surface. You can also use these gels instead of implants to make your lips and cheeks bigger. Some HA fillers are already on the market in the U.S., like Restylane and Juvederm.
What is Belotero Filler?
Belotero Balance (+) is a filler made of hyaluronic acid that is injected into the skin of the face. Belotero Filler is made in a special way that makes a soft, cohesive gel that, when injected, immediately fills the skin to help smooth out moderate to severe lines and wrinkles in the lower face.
Even though the product can be used to treat moderate nasolabial folds (smile lines), lines around the mouth, and chin wrinkles, it may be best for delicate areas like deeply etched vertical lip lines (thin lines that appear above and around the lips).
How do Belotero Fillers work in your face?
Hyaluronic acid is normally found in the connective tissues of the body. The main job of this sponge-like molecule is to soak up water, which gives the skin volume by plumping it up from the inside. Hyaluronic acid has been called the body’s natural moisturizer, but as we age, our bodies make less of it. This causes our skin to lose volume and show fine lines, wrinkles, and folds.
Soft tissue fillers like Belotero Balance and others that are made with hyaluronic acid fill in what nature takes away. They can fix marionette lines and smile lines around the mouth, as well as worry lines and crow’s feet around the eyes. They are also good for treating wrinkles between the nose and lips and for making lips look fuller.
Restylane and Juvederm vs. Belotero Balance
Merz Pharmaceuticals, the company that makes Belotero Balance, says that it might fill a need that isn’t being met by other hyaluronic acid fillers like Restylane and Juvederm. Belotero can fill in fine lines without giving the skin a bluish tint like other dermal fillers made with hyaluronic acid. When hyaluronic acid-based fillers are injected too close to the skin’s surface, light reflected through the skin bounces off the clear filler, giving it an unnatural color.
Side Effects of Belotero Filler
Common side effects include mild irritation, swelling, itching, redness, bruising, or pain at the injection site. Most of the time, these side effects go away on their own. If any of these side effects last longer than 7 days, you should talk to your doctor right away.
How long does Belotero last?
Depending on how many areas are being treated, a Belotero injection session can take up to 30 minutes. During the procedure, most people feel some minor pain, and redness, bruising, and swelling are common afterward.
Hyaluronic acid breaks down completely in the skin over a few months, so Belotero is only a short-term fix. You can expect the effects to last between 6 and 12 months. Like other fillers made with hyaluronic acid, Belotero Filler can be dissolved with an enzyme called hyaluronidase, which is given as an injection.
Belotero Filler Cost in Dubai
