If the way aging has changed your appearance is making you self-conscious, know you don’t need to live with this forever. At H-MD Medical Spa in Oklahoma City, OK, our Belotero treatments can help you get back to the young appearance you’ve been missing.
What Should You Not Do After Belotero?
Belotero is a highly effective way to reduce the appearance of aging concerns like wrinkles and sagging. When you get your treatment from a qualified practitioner, you can expect your treatment to be safe and for you to get results that you’re going to love.
This treatment is non-invasive, which means there is no downtime to worry about after you get your injections. There are, however, a few things you should avoid. You’ll need to stay out of direct sunlight since your skin will be much more sensitive and susceptible to burning as it heals. You’ll also need to avoid strenuous physical activity or anything that could trigger a lot of sweating.
What Exactly Is Belotero?
This is a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler that’s injected into your skin using a fine and precise needle. Hyaluronic acid is a sugar that you can find naturally in various parts of your body like your skin, eyes, and connective tissues.
Once it’s been injected, the filler takes up space under your skin, filling in any volume that may have been lost. This lifts sagging skin and reduces the appearance of wrinkles, giving you a much more youthful appearance.
What Makes Our Skin Wrinkle?
Your skin has several chemicals that give it its structure and its fullness. As you already know, it contains hyaluronic acid which helps provide volume and maintain your skin’s hydration by attracting moisture molecules. Your skin also contains proteins like collagen and elastin which give your skin its structure and elasticity.
When you’re young, you have high levels of these chemicals. But the older you get, the less effective your skin is at producing them. This makes your skin more prone to damage as well as to the effects of gravity. When combined with repeated facial movements, this causes wrinkles and sagging to form.
What Areas Can Belotero Treat?
The skin around your eyes is much more delicate than the skin on other parts of your face. This makes your eye area one of the first places to show significant signs of aging. For instance, you may have noticed crow’s feet or dark circles under your eyes.
If you’d like to get rid of these signs of aging for brighter, more youthful-looking eyes, you can get this dermal filler to fill in the area.
When you raised your eyebrows, you’ll notice horizontal lines running across your forehead. Over time, these lines will become permanent. They can make you look constantly worried or surprised.
If you’re not happy with the way these lines are making you look, this dermal filler is the perfect option. It will take up space underneath your skin, smoothing out the wrinkles that may have formed on your forehead.
The lines that form when you furrow your brow are called frown lines or glabellar lines. When they become permanent, they can make you look perpetually worried, much like your forehead lines.
Anyone looking for an effective way to reduce the appearance of these lines should look into this dermal filler. You’ll be able to fill in the skin in this area, helping you appear more relaxed and happier.
Your cheeks are one of the fullest parts of your face. So, when you lose volume with age, it tends to be pretty obvious in your cheeks. You may find that you look gaunt now that you’ve lost a significant amount of volume here.
You can get this dermal filler to add in any volume that you may have lost with age. Your cheeks will be larger and rounder, giving you a more youthful look. This is also a great way to add more definition to your cheekbones.
As your skin loses elasticity and gravity takes a stronger hold on it, you may notice jowls forming. This is a natural part of aging, but it’s not usually a welcome one.
To reduce the appearance of any jowls you may have, you can get this filler in your cheek area. This will lift your sagging skin and get rid of your jowls while also adding more definition to your jawline.
Laugh lines, also called smile lines or nasolabial folds, are the lines that appear around your nose and mouth. Many people consider them to be a sign that they have laughed or smiled often in their lives, but others don’t like the way they age their appearance.
Luckily, there are ways to fill in the area and reduce the appearance of these lines. This dermal filler is a great way to get rid of laugh lines.
Have you noticed lines running from the corners of your mouth down toward your chin? These lines are called marionette lines, and they can be very frustrating to see.
If you don’t like the way they’ve changed your appearance, consider getting this filler to add more volume to the area and reduce the severity of your marionette lines.
The way your lips look can have a huge effect on the way the rest of your face appears. Thin lips can be a major sign of aging and can make you appear more serious than you really are.
This filler is a fantastic way to put volume into your lips and make them appear plump and youthful. You can also use it to even out uneven lips and reduce the appearance of wrinkles like lipstick lines.
If you struggle with acne, then you know exactly how frustrating this experience can be. Acne can make you feel self-conscious about the way you look, and it can be physically uncomfortable and even painful to deal with. Even if you get rid of your acne, you may find that you have some scarring that remains.
Anyone looking for a way to reduce the appearance of their acne scars should consider getting this dermal filler. You’ll feel much more confident in your skin with this scarring gone.
