It’s normal to see changes to your skin as you get older, but many of these changes can have a negative effect on your self-confidence. At Bala Aesthetics & Medispa in Bel Air, MD, our Belotero injections can help you feel happier with your appearance.
How Quickly Does Belotero Start Working?
When you’re feeling self-conscious about the way you look, finding a solution that’s going to work quickly is probably at the forefront of your mind. Some dermal fillers or other types of cosmetic treatments can take a while to show results: sometimes up to several weeks.
Belotero will provide you with almost immediate results. As soon as your appointment at our clinic is finished, you’ll see a change in the way you look as the filler takes up space under your skin. Over the next few days, you’ll get to see your complete results.
The Reasons Your Skin Is Changing
There are a few factors at play. To maintain its structure and youthful fullness, your skin uses several chemicals, including hyaluronic acid and collagen.
What Does Hyaluronic Acid Do?
This is a sugar that is present in your skin as well as in several other parts of your body. That includes your muscles, eyes, and other connective tissues. Hyaluronic acid’s job is to provide hydration and lubrication. It does this by attracting and then attaching itself to moisture molecules.
This is in large part why your face looks so full when you’re young. But aging impedes your body’s ability to produce its own hyaluronic acid as effectively as it did when you were young. This will cause a noticeable loss of volume in your face.
What Does Collagen Do?
The other important chemical to discuss is collagen. If you’ve read the labels on beauty products before, you’ve probably seen this word at least a few times. Collagen is a protein that you can find in your skin along with other tissues in your body, like your bones and cartilage.
Just like hyaluronic acid, over time, your body will stop being able to produce as much collagen. Because this protein is responsible for maintaining your skin’s elasticity, as you begin to lose significant amounts of it you’ll notice more and more wrinkling and sagging of the skin on your face.
How Does Belotero Work?
This Belotero injectable is applied to your desired areas using a fine and precise needle. The main ingredient in it is hyaluronic acid, making it safe for almost anyone to get. When it’s injected into the skin, the hyaluronic acid will do a couple of different things to help your appearance.
First, it fills in the space under your skin which will provide you with a fuller, more youthful-looking face. It will also help encourage your body to produce more collagen. That means that you’ll also reduce the appearance of wrinkles and prevent more from showing up as you get older.
What Are the Benefits?
Minimal Preparation Required
Certain cosmetic treatments may require some extensive repairing before you can receive them. But getting this injectable is easy. Before your appointment, we’ll simply consult with you to get a clearer idea of what your goals are and help you set expectations. We’ll also tell you how to get ready for your appointment.
There will just be a few things to keep in mind in the 48 or so hours before you get your injections. Because alcohol and tobacco can thin your blood, as can some over-the-counter medications and supplements, you’ll have to avoid these to prevent bruising around the injection areas.
Treatment Is Fuss-Free
Because it’s non-invasive, the Belotero treatment process itself for this filler is super easy and fast. To begin, we’ll clean the areas where you’re going to get your injections to prevent any bacteria from entering the injection sites along with the product. If you’re concerned about pain, we can apply a topical numbing cream to the area.
Know that you should not experience any pain as the product is applied because the needle is so small. You should only feel a slight pinch. You’ll receive several injections of small amounts of the product at a time, as this helps us to ensure accuracy. Your appointment will likely take under an hour to complete, and you can leave as soon as it’s done.
Get Fuller Cheeks
One of the most common parts of the face to get injections of this filler is the cheeks. That’s because as you lose volume in your face overall, this tends to be very noticeable in your cheeks. You may find your face looking thin and gaunt, which in extreme cases can give you a gaunt or sickly appearance.
If you’re unhappy with this, then this injectable can help. You’ll be able to put a significant amount of volume back into your cheeks, making them appear rounder and fuller. If you wish your cheekbones had a little more definition, this filler can help with that as well.
Smooth Out Your Jawline
Have you started noticing that the skin around your jawline sags with age? As your face loses both collagen and hyaluronic acid, the thinning of your cheeks and the laxity of your skin can result in issues like jowls forming.
If you’re looking for a solution to this issue, Belotero injections can help. If you get them in the cheek area, not only will you fill in your cheeks, but you’ll also lift any sagging skin. This is going to tighten your jawline and make it look much smoother and more defined.
Get Rid of Crow’s Feet
Crow’s feet are the little fine lines that you’ll find extending from the outer corners of your eyes. The skin around your eyes is much more delicate than the skin on other parts of your face, so it’s not unusual to see these little lines showing up earlier than other types of facial wrinkles.
You can maintain an overall youthful appearance by getting injections of this filler around your eyes. It will help to tighten up the skin and keep the skin around your eyes looking smooth and tight.
Brighten Your Eyes
As the skin around your eyes loses volume, you’ll begin to notice that your eyes make look darker and hollower. You may even start to see the formation of bags under your eyes which will not only make you look older but can make you appear perpetually exhausted.
If you’re looking for a solution to this issue, this injectable might be exactly what you need. By providing more volume to the area, it will reduce the severity of this hollowness and make your eyes look much brighter and more alert.
Reduce Laugh Lines
Laugh lines, which are also known as smile lines or nasolabial folds, are the lines that appear between your nose and mouth when you smile. Over time as you repeat this movement and your skin loses elasticity, you’ll find that these lines become permanent.
These lines can have a drastic effect on your overall appearance, especially as they become more severe with age. Getting this filler will provide more volume and elasticity to the area, which, in turn, is going to smooth out these lines and help you look younger.
Fill in Forehead Lines
Lifting your brows or furrowing them can cause lines to appear on your forehead as well as between your eyebrows. Lines like these can make you constantly look surprised or worried.
Unhappy with this appearance? Consider getting injections of this filler to smooth out the area and get rid of wrinkles.
Fill in Your Lips
Have your lips started getting thinner as you’ve gotten older? Or have you always had naturally thin lips? Very fine lips can give you a severe expression that you may find doesn’t match your actual personality.
You can use this filler to target your lips and fill them in, making them look plumper and more youthful. Additionally, the filler can reduce the appearance of lipstick lines which are the fine lines appearing on your lips.
