How Does It Work?

    Belotero® products are dermal fillers made of hyaluronic acid (HA), which is a natural component of your skin. The innate ability of hyaluronic acid to bind water makes it the perfect choice for reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles, restoring facial volumes and rehydrating skin.

    In your body, hyaluronic acid (HA) fills the spaces between cells, protecting them by retaining water and serving as a cushion. Considered a ‘natural moisturiser’ HA performs different tasks in the body. HA can hold up to 1,000 times its own weight in water, maintaining the smoothness (moisturising effect) and plumpness (volumising effect) of our skin.

    During the ageing process, the production of HA naturally decreases. The skin becomes drier and its ability to retain moisture and maintain elasticity depletes. Today, the signs and symptoms of the natural ageing process of the skin can be reduced by replacing the lost hyaluronic acid

    The Procedure

    Filler injections will take about 30 minutes to complete. Wrinkle filling, facial contouring and rehydration treatments are virtually painless.  To enhance your comfort, the filler products are available with lidocaine. 

    We are proud to offer hypoallergenic fillers and usually do not require a skin test prior to injection**. The aesthetic results are immediate and you will be able to continue your daily activities as soon as your appointment is over.

    After treatment, some injection-related reactions may occur, including redness, swelling and slight bruising. These reactions are completely normal, generally mild to moderate, and usually disappear within a week.

    Immediate Results  

    During the treatment session, the filler is injected into the specific area of the skin to be treated, using a very fine needle or cannula. Once injected, it acts like a cushion, supporting facial structures and tissue that may have lost volume and elasticity.  The product product instantly fills the skin and smoothes out wrinkles on your face. Due to its special formulation, the Belotero®  dermal filler easily integrates into your skin without disrupting your natural contours and without affecting your facial expressions.  In addition to filling out wrinkles, it hydrates the surface of the skin to keep it looking fresh and plump.  We are committed to quality and to providing you with hyaluronic acid products that give you safe, natural-looking and lasting results in as little time as possible.

    With Belotero, the difference in appearance is immediately evident. Lips are fuller, acne scars are reduced and smile lines and wrinkles are less evident. Depending on your skin, lifestyle and age, you may choose to have a touch-up treatment within a year. As the face ages further, the skin will continue to change. Untreated and treated wrinkles may naturally deepen, requiring some additional injections over the years.  Dr. Karim will discuss your treatment goals and perform a facial analysis to determine the appropriate treatment areas for you.
