If you’ve been missing your younger appearance and you’re wishing for a solution that can help you maintain a more youthful look, our team at Allure Enhancement Center in Lafayette, LA is ready to help you. Here’s all you need to know about what our Belotero treatments can do for you.
What Is Belotero Used for?
It’s normal to start getting wrinkles, especially on your face, as you age, along with other changes like sagging and volume loss. But even though they’re natural, these changes may make you feel self-conscious about your appearance.
Belotero is an injectable dermal filler that’s used to add the fullness that you may have lost back to your face. It also smooths out wrinkles and lifts sagging skin. It’s a safe, non-invasive, and effective way of maintaining a more youthful appearance.
What Makes Skin Wrinkle?
While in your youth your skin may be firm and appear full, the older you get the more it’s going to change. Your skin uses several chemicals to maintain both its fullness and structure. You have high levels of these chemicals present in your skin in your youth. This includes proteins like collagen and elastin along with a sugar called hyaluronic acid.
As you get older, however, the levels of these chemicals start to get lower, and your skin loses the ability to maintain its elasticity and structure. This is what makes wrinkles and sagging appear, as well as what causes an overall loss of volume in your face.
What Is Belotero?
This is an injectable dermal filler that’s designed to put the lost volume back into your face. It’s made with hyaluronic acid, which you can also find in various parts of your body naturally. As it’s injected, the hyaluronic acid begins to change your appearance by taking space under your skin and lifting any sagging.
It also encourages your skin to create more of the protein collagen. Collagen is responsible for maintaining your skin’s elasticity and structure. So, by stimulating its production, the hyaluronic acid will help your skin stay firm and prevent more wrinkles from appearing.
What Areas Can You Target?
You’ve probably also seen these folds called laugh lines or smile lines. They are the lines that appear between your nose and your mouth, and they’re caused by a combination of volume loss, loss of elasticity, and repeated facial movements.
These are very common wrinkles to see, and because your mouth is so mobile, they tend to appear fairly early. The good news is that you can get this treatment to fill in the area, smoothing out your nasolabial folds for a much more youthful look.
Do you miss the round, full cheeks of your youth? Because your cheeks are naturally more voluminous than other parts of your face, when you lose that volume it tends to be pretty obvious. Thin cheeks won’t just age your appearance—they can also make you appear sickly.
Injections of this dermal filler will put this lost volume back into your cheeks, lifting them and making them appear much more defined. This will help your overall appearance seem much younger and healthier.
The more your skin loses elasticity, the stronger the natural effects of gravity are going to be on you. Your skin is going to begin to sag, and this will probably be fairly obvious around your jawline. You may start to see jowls forming, which can be particularly frustrating.
You can easily use this dermal filler to firm up the skin in this area and contour your jawline. When you get injections in your cheeks, this will pull sagging skin back up and reduce the appearance of jowls while also providing you with a smooth and defined jawline.
When you raise your brows, you’ll notice horizontal lines running across your forehead. Over time, as your skin loses its ability to snap back into place, these lines will become permanent. They can make you look constantly concerned or surprised, which may not be an expression you like.
To reduce the appearance of these lines, you can get injections of this filler. It will put the volume back into the area and smooth out these lines, helping your overall appearance stay relaxed and youthful.
Have you noticed lines forming between your eyebrows? Your frown lines are the lines that appear when you furrow your brow. If these lines have become permanent, then you may find yourself appearing perpetually angry, worried, or confused.
Don’t like the way this makes you look? Consider getting injections of this dermal filler. When you put more volume in this area, it will reduce the appearance of your frown lines and allow you to look much more relaxed.
Because the skin around your eyes is thinner than on the rest of your face, it tends to be much more delicate. This, of course, means that the area around your eyes is prone to showing signs of aging faster than other parts of your face. For instance, you might notice crow’s feet, or tiny lines extending from the outer corners of your eyes.
If you don’t like the way these lines are affecting your overall appearance, this dermal filler is the perfect solution. It will be gentle on the skin around your eyes while still offering you the volume the area needs to smooth out these lines and maintain a youthful look.
As the area under your eyes loses volume you may start to notice bags forming. These can make you look sickly or always tired. If you’d like to have brighter, more youthful eyes, then you’ll want to consider getting this injectable.
It will put any volume that you’ve lost back into the area and help brighten your eyes, making them appear much more youthful and giving you a healthier appearance.
What Is Getting Treatment Like?
Getting Ready for Your Appointment
Before you can get your injections, there are a few things you’ll need to do to prepare. We’ll provide you with full instructions before your appointment. There are just a few basic things you’ll need to remember.
Make sure you avoid substances that could act as blood thinners and encourage bruising around the areas where you’ll be getting injections. This includes alcohol, tobacco, and certain over-the-counter medications and supplements.
When you arrive at our clinic, we’ll work hard to make you feel safe and comfortable. Before we apply the injections to your desired areas, we’ll have to prepare your skin. We’ll clean it thoroughly to remove any grime that’s built up before your appointment. We may also apply a topical numbing cream.
Once your skin is ready, we’ll start injecting the product. We’ll apply small amounts of the filler at a time to ensure that you get exactly the results you’re looking for. The entire treatment process is fast and painless and you can leave the clinic as soon as it’s complete.
Because this treatment is non-invasive, your recovery process is extremely low-maintenance. Unlike surgical procedures, you won’t need to worry about extensive, uncomfortable, or even painful downtimes as your skin heal from the injections. You can get back to your regular life as long as you remember a few things.
You should continue avoiding substances like alcohol and tobacco over the next few days. Your skin is going to be more sensitive than normal, so you should also stay away from activities that could cause a lot of sweating, as well as direct sunlight.
