4 Ways Belotero is Different Than Other Fillers
- Posted on: Dec 21 2015
You may think all dermal fillers are the same, but nothing could be further from the truth. Each filler is specially formulated to work in different areas and for different imperfections.
One of the newer fillers available, Belotero® offers many benefits not available with other popular fillers and treatments like Juvederm® , Radiesse® or Botox® . Here’s a look at what makes this filler different and why it may be a good option for you.
How is Belotero® Different?
1. It’s great for delicate skin.
This product can be used in the delicate areas of your face where Botox® and other fillers can’t be injected safely. Those delicate lines around your eyes are perfect candidates for this hyaluronic gel. And if you have thin or sensitive skin, this is a great option too. Unlike other fillers, Belotero is quite thin and virtually undetectable once injected into your skin.
2. It can be used places other than your face.
While Belotero can be used on many areas of your face, it’s also the only dermal filler that can be injected into your hands, neck, chest or shoulders. That’s important since you experience dryness and crêping in these areas as you age. Belotero replaces lost volume and rehydrates which restores your skin’s suppleness and elasticity.
3. It adds a finishing touch
Your cosmetic doctor can layer Belotero with other denser gels like Juvederm®. For example, the thicker gel can be injected to add volume to a deep crease and followed with Belotero near the surface of your skin to soften superficial wrinkles.
4. It’s not painful
Belotero doesn’t come premixed with lidocaine or another numbing agent, but you really don’t need one. The thin gel integrates into your tissue rather than disrupting it so the injections aren’t painful and the treated areas feel completely natural. However, a topical anethetic can be prepared for your at our cosmetic center if you’re worried about how the injection will feel.
