Most of you might have heard of the latest buzzword in the cosmetic industry: dermal fillers. A dermal filler is basically a kind of non-toxic product injected into the skin at various levels of depth. They are used to smooth out acne scars, the nasolabial folds, wrinkles, and fine lines.
In some cases, dermal fillers are also utilized for contouring the nose and chin, plumping thin lips, and providing volume to sunken cheeks to lend a fuller and more youthful appearance to the face.
What Is Belotero?
Belotero is an injectable dermal filler that has hyaluronic acid as its primary ingredient. It is one of the lightest dermal fillers available in the market and is often referred to as a “starter filler.”
Belotero is a great option for individuals who are looking to reduce wrinkles and fine lines that form around the corners of their lip area, including the marionette lines. The hyaluronic acid gel present in Belotero is actually derived from a natural sugar released by the skin tissues to keep the gaps between joints lubricated.
How Belotero Works
The major function of hyaluronic acid is to transmit nutrients, absorb water, and act as a cushion for the protection of the joints. When Belotero is injected into the skin, the hyaluronic acid present in it absorbs the excess fluids from within the tissue and expands to fill up the gaps left by the folds and creases within the skin. The acid also helps in filling up the sunken areas and thin lips by acting like a sponge.
The hyaluronic acid present in Belotero absorbs water and hydrates the dried-out skin tissues, thus imparting a natural radiance and freshness for a supple and healthy appearance of the skin.
In addition to this, Belotero dermal filler stimulates the production and release of collagen, a natural protein that is associated with the regeneration and repair of skin tissues. The increased production of collagen helps in making the skin healthier by repairing the damaged tissues and reducing the onset of wrinkles and fine lines in the future.
How Is Belotero More Effective than Other Dermal Fillers?
There are several kinds of dermal fillers on the market these days, including Radiesse and Juvederm. Owing to its thin lightweight consistency, Belotero is one of the most efficient and popular dermal fillers in the cosmetic industry.
The fact that Belotero has an extremely light consistency makes it so the filler can be injected very deep within the skin without having to worry about the onset of the Tyndall effect. This effect involves a bluish tint of the skin. The thinner consistency also helps to avoid the unsightly bumps that can occur with thick fillers. This is the reason why many surgeons make use of Belotero for treating the first visible signs of wrinkles and shallow creases within the thin-skinned area surrounding the mouth.
Due to the fact that Belotero treatments are relatively pain free and work quickly, the procedure is gaining popularity all around the world for effectively diminishing visible signs of aging.
