Keep looking great for longer
As time passes, our skin succumbs to the effects of ageing, pollution, fatigue, stress and toxins. It loses its youthful suppleness and elasticity. Little by little, lines begin to appear and, over time, they become deeper and more noticeable.
Whilst this is a perfectly normal process, there is a natural way to restore your appearance - without resorting to surgery.
Hyaluronic acid is a substance that occurs naturally in the body and it plays an essential role in the hydration of the skin, giving it volume and making it smooth. Unfortunately, production declines as we get older and lines appear as skin dries out.
Belotero is a new generation of hyaluronic acid that can be used to correct lines and give more volume to lips, cheeks or the outlines of the face. Belotero is a non-permanent treatment that offers an immediate lifting effect, giving you a smooth, natural appearance.
Due to a unique production process, Belotero is a particularly soft gel that feels natural and smooth. It is also completely biocompatible and biodegradable which means there is reduced risk of allergy and it degrades slowly in a perfectly natural way.
Belotero® - as individual as you!
Everyones face and skin are different which is why the Belotero range is available in three formulations. Your practitioner will choose the right presentation for you.
Used for the correction of fine, superficial lines around the eyes and for lines around the mouth and for the décolletage. It is injected just under the surface of the skin.
Used for the correction of medium to deep wrinkles of the cheeks and lines around the mouth, it can also be used to shape the lips and improve contours on the face. This is injected into the upper layer of the skin.
Used for the correction of deeper lines, like those from the corner of the nose to the corner of the mouth. Also ideal for increasing fullness of the lips. This is injected into the middle to deeper layer of the skin.
How long does treatment take?
You will have an initial consultation to discuss your needs. Actual treatment normally takes 25-30 minutes. Belotero is injected precisely into the areas that require correction using a pre-filled, sterile syringe.
Will I need a skin test?
As Belotero is of natural origin, no allergy testing is required.
Does it hurt?
Belotero has been designed to reduce pain and discomfort. The composition of Belotero and the unique, ergonomic design of the Belotero syringe, make it possible for very fine needles to be used. Your practitioner may offer you a local anaesthetic cream, particularly if your skin is sensitive.
Will it become hard or noticeable to touch?
Belotero stays soft and takes on the feel of the surrounding tissue.
Are there any side effects?
Side-effects are uncommon, however you may experience slight swelling, redness, pain, itching, bruising or tenderness at the injection site directly after treatment. This should subside within 24 hours.
What if I'm taking medication?
If you are taking any medication, please consult your practitioner.
Is it permanent?
Whilst treatment with Belotero lasts many months, the results are not permanent. The effect will depend on the individual and the area of treatment. Over time, hyaluronic acid degrades naturally, giving you the option to decide after a few months if you want further youthful rejuvenation.
How long does Belotero® last?
Most clients follow-up their treatment after 6 to 12 months to maintain a fresh, youthful appearance.
How quickly can I return to normal activities?
Swelling or redness after injection usually subsides after about 24 hours. Some people return to work immediately after treatment. There are just one or two things you should avoid. Try not to apply pressure to corrected areas. Avoid applying make-up for at least 12 hours and avoid saunas, Turkish baths and prolonged exposure to UV light for 2 weeks after treatment.
