What if there was a quick and effective way to reduce wrinkles and folds? We recommend Belotero at Beautiful Eyes LLC in Wichita, KS. Injectable treatments that use hyaluronic acid are effective at eliminating aging signs. You’ll notice that your face is more supple and looks younger in just a few minutes with this treatment.
How Long Does Belotero Last?
The results of Belotero can last anywhere from six months to 18 months, on average. A number of factors can affect the results you achieve from your treatment, including your age, general health, and the amount of filler you receive.
It is impossible to change your genetic makeup, of course, which will do a lot to determine how long this lasts for you, and we will give you the amount of filler that’s right for giving you natural and beautiful results: but you can also take some steps to make sure the treatment lasts for as long as possible:
Stay Out of the Sun
You should minimize your UV exposure. Overexposure to sunlight can lead to skin damage. Compared to the skin elsewhere on the body, the skin on the face burns more quickly due to its thinness and delicate nature. Using regular sunscreen can make your skin healthier overall, in addition to helping you get the longest results from your injections. Wear a wide-brimmed hat and apply sunscreen every day, even in cloudy weather.
Stress can also lead to wrinkles and lines as well as speed up the aging process. The effects of stress cannot be completely eliminated, but they can be minimized. Yoga and meditation can help you manage the stress you can’t avoid. In addition, it is a good idea to remove unnecessary stress-inducing factors from your life whenever you can.
Eating well is the first step toward caring for your body. Sugar is found in a variety of foods, including some you wouldn’t expect, but it hinders collagen and elastin from retaining moisture and clearing the skin. Choose whole, antioxidant-rich foods rather than snacks full of sugar. Berry fruits, for example, may help reduce wrinkles and age spots by fighting free radicals.
Also, limit your consumption of caffeine and alcohol, which can dehydrate your cells. Reducing salty snacks will also help your cells stay hydrated.
Use the Right Skincare Products
The chemicals in many inexpensive skincare products can cause irritation to the skin, such as sodium lauryl sulfate, formaldehyde, and propylene glycol. A healthy lifestyle means using products that contain healthy ingredients that will keep your skin clean and moisturized. Drinking lots of water is also important, along with using quality skincare products. Stay hydrated after your treatment to maximize the effects of Belotero: it’s good for your skin and helps your skincare products work better.
Get Maintenance Treatments
Regular touch-ups by our experienced staff will ensure the best results. After your initial treatment, we recommend scheduling these appointments right away. By getting regular treatments, you may be able to train your muscles to respond to injectables more effectively. You may eventually require fewer treatments and at alonger intervals if you keep up with maintenance treatments regularly.
Why This Treatment Works
There is an intricate relationship between your body’s HA levels, skin volume, and genetic predisposition to wrinkles. When your skin is young, HA – which is produced proportionately with collagen and elastin – is present in large amounts, which helps it maintain its structure and prevent wrinkles. It works by binding to water molecules and regulating moisture levels in the skin.
For soft tissues to stay radiant, they need plenty of moisture that can reflect rather than absorb light. The skin looks dull and tired when it absorbs light instead of reflecting it. We begin to see a change in our skin in our 30s, when our bodies naturally start to produce less HA. Thus, fine lines and wrinkles develop as the skin thins and dries out.
HA-based facial fillers hydrate the skin from within while also restoring volume. When HA-based facial fillers combine these two effects, they can rejuvenate your appearance. The fillers not only strengthen sagging skin but also nourish it, so it appears radiant and youthful once again.
The Belotero treatment is ideal for those who prefer a more natural approach to their healthcare. In this filler, hyaluronic acid is present in a form that is similar to what our bodies produce naturally, so the body knows just what to do with it. Using molecules of stabilized HA, this treatment gently and effectively restores lost volume. It is possible for a single treatment to last up to 18 months without affecting muscle movement in any way. It’s an effective way to slow the aging process dramatically.
How Quickly Does Belotero Start Working?
Skin responds to cosmetic treatments differently for each individual. In general, however, Belotero delivers immediate results due to hyaluronic acid (HA). In addition to looking plumper and smoother, the skin appears plump after the treatment. Nonetheless, as the HA settles into your skin’s foundational layers, these results should continue to improve. Nasolabial folds, or folds to the sides of the nose that extend into the corners of the mouth, are the specific problem this product was created to address.
The two most important factors contributing to the formation of these folds are smoking and sun damage. The breakdown of collagen and elastin keeps skin supple and resilient, but each of these factors weakens collagen and elastin. Cumulative damage can make nasolabial folds more prominent. In contrast, some people, regardless of their lifestyle or sun exposure, have prominent folds simply because of genetics or aging.
What To Expect From Your Injection Treatment
You will have a chance to consult with a member of our professional staff privately about your treatment options. Your treatment session will be tailored to your specific cosmetic concerns, and we will discuss what to expect with you beforehand. In addition, we will consider whether or not you are healthy enough to have this treatment and whether it is an appropriate method of reaching your goals.
In the end, we will review your medical history, answer all your questions, and make sure that you feel completely comfortable and at ease throughout the entire process.
Preparing for Injections
There are no complex steps involved in preparing for treatment. It is as simple as coming in for a consultation with us! Providing you follow only a few simple steps, you might even be able to get treatment on the same day that you have your consultation.
It is important to protect your skin from UV damage and avoid invasive hair removal methods, such as laser resurfacing, tweezing, waxing, and microdermabrasion. Depending on your current medications, you might be recommended to temporarily stop taking blood thinners and other medications that may interfere with your treatment. You should also ensure that your skin has been moisturized and nourished well.
During a Treatment Session
During the actual treatment, you can expect the process to be completed quickly. In our experience, it should take less than a half-hour to administer the injections. Using extremely small needles and injecting the gel strategically underneath the skin, we use just the right amount of product to get you the results you’re looking for. Once this has been done, it is possible to return to work, run errands, and continue with your normal day.
After Your Treatment
Because you won’t have to worry about recovery time with this treatment, no downtime is required. The best results will be achieved if you follow a few guidelines. The volumizing qualities of this injectible are enhanced by drinking water. Although this has been mentioned previously, it is worth explaining again. Keep yourself hydrated, and you will be able to achieve your goals sooner. It is very important to get enough sleep and eat a healthy diet in order to rejuvenate your skin tissues.
The day following the session, you will be able to resume your regular activities, but you need to avoid a few things. A vigorous exercise routine raises your blood pressure and makes you flushed, but it is recommended that you keep your blood pressure within normal ranges for at least one or two days after treatment. Furthermore, it is also recommended that you stay away from hot showers, hot saunas, and steam rooms for a few days after your treatment. Be sure to ask us about the best ways to care for yourself.
