Hyaluronic acid is a type of sugar (polysaccharide) that is naturally present in body tissues. It combines with water and swells up when in gel form, contributing to a smoothing/filling effect.
In some cases, hyaluronic acid used in dermal fillers is chemically modified (crosslinked) to make it last longer in the body. The effects of hyaluronic acid typically lasts 6 – 12 months, depending on the character and cross-linking.
There are various types of technology used to crosslink hyaluronic acid, and Belotero’s Cohesive Polydensified Matrix gives the filler the optimum characteristics of cohesivity, plasticity and elasticity1.
As a consequence, the Belotero range of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers distributes and integrates homogenously intradermally, leading to a natural, “smooth” and natural looking effect when compared to competitors.
One of the great advantages of Belotero® fillers is that the effects are long-lasting, between 9 and 18 months, but not permanenet. Duration depends on many factors, such as the type of treatment, treated area, individual’s skin type, skin condition, lifestyle and age.
The results of a treatment are immediate and you will not need any subsequent rest period. Usually, you can resume your daily activities right away.
BELOTERO® fillers are available with lidocaine to reduce any sensation of pain you might feel. BELOTERO® can be applied with very fine needles, this helps to maximise your comfort.
During your first consultation, our physicians will discuss your individual treatment plan and expectations. Depending on the treated areas, one treatment session will likely take between 14 and 45 minutes.
