Injectables treatments such as Belotero have been used for years to allow patients to combat the earliest signs of aging while correcting volume loss and augmenting the lips. Belotero is one of many dermal fillers available at Aura Skin Spa with Dr. Anthony Waechter and his team in San Francisco, California.
What is a dermal filler ad how does it work?
Most popular dermal fillers such as Belotero are formulated with an active ingredient known as hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is produced naturally in the skin, surrounding collagen and other proteins to act as a cushion to the skin while adding volume directly where it is injected. Belotero and other cosmetic injectables are commonly used to:
- Fight volume loss in the cheek area
- Fill fine lines and wrinkles across the face
- Augment the upper and/or lower lip
- Address folds around the nose, mouth, and forehead
Is Belotero permanent?
Unlike plastic surgery procedures such as a facelift, injectables such as Belotero do not offer permanent results. Instead, the correction will last several months before the body slowly begins to absorb the filler. To maintain the results, patients will require routine visits to Aura Skin Spa to have more Belotero or other fillers injected. This allows patients to stay one step ahead of the signs of aging, slowing them and allowing them to maintain their youthful appearance for longer—without requiring plastic surgery. There is a point where patients will no longer benefit from dermal fillers and other cosmetic injectables and may eventually need surgery to address severe volume loss or moderate to severe skin laxity that contributes to an aged appearance.
