What are Boletero® Dermal Fillers?
Belotero® Dermal Fillers are natural, non-animal, non-permanent, hyaluronic acid gels commonly used to plump lips, fill lines and folds and to smooth wrinkles. They can also be used to increase cheek volume to create a very good non-surgical face lift!
Belotero® can rejuvenate sun damaged skin on hands, chests and necks. It is suitable for both men and women.
Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the body and starts to decrease along with collagen as we age. This causes loss of volume, loss of elasticity and the formation of lines and wrinkles. Belotero® restores this volume and naturally plumps up wrinkles, lines and lips- just like a poly-filler fills in cracks in our walls!
Is it safe?
Belotero® is one of only a few dermal fillers to be approved for cosmetic use by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration). It has been used since the 1980s in millions of treatments worldwide.
Our Doctors and nurses are very experienced and certificated in the administration of dermal fillers. You will always have a thorough consultation to discuss your expectations and answer any questions you may have.
Does it hurt?
Belotero® now comes with a local anaesthetic to give you a more comfortable experience. This may mean that, following treatment, you may be quite numb in the area.
We will also apply topical anaesthetic cream 30 minutes prior to your treatment. Ice packs can be used after treatment to help with any swelling or redness that may occur.
When will I see results?
Fillers give an instant result in lifting lines,wrinkles, folds and plumping cheeks and lips. You may be advised to also have wrinkle relaxing injections for forehead areas and frown lines to give best results.
Occasionally a top up treatment is required up to 2 weeks after treatment, once the area has settled, this is to give you optimum results. Your Nurse will advise you of this at your consultation. Belotero® tends to last between 5 and 12 months and is absorbed naturally into the body over time. This, of course, is lifestyle dependent, in smokers and sun worshippers the product will not last as long – so that’s another good reason to give up!
