As you get older, you’ll inevitably experience some changes to your appearance as your skin changes too. But these changes might make you feel unhappy with the way you look. At Madison Medispa in Waunakee, WI, our Belotero treatments can help you look and feel confident again.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Belotero?

Changes to the appearance and texture of your skin are natural and normal side effects of aging. Unfortunately, they can also cause a lot of anxiety about your appearance and make you feel self-conscious about the way you look.

If you’re looking for an effective solution to the changes you may have noticed in the way you look like wrinkling and sagging of the skin, Belotero can help. This hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler will provide you with effective and long-lasting results that will help you feel confident again. If you have any of the following concerns, are in general good health, and are not pregnant or breastfeeding, then you could be a good candidate to receive this treatment.

Smile Lines

Smile lines, also known as laugh lines or, more scientifically, nasolabial folds are the vertical lines that appear in between your nose and your mouth. Because the area on this part of your face moves around so much, it’s very common for wrinkles to show up here.

But these wrinkles will age your appearance considerably and can make you look much older. Getting this dermal filler will help add volume to the area, smoothing out these lines and giving you a younger appearance.

Hollow Cheeks

As you get older, your body loses certain amounts of the chemicals that provide your skin with its structure and volume. This will result in a loss of fullness in your appearance, as well as your skin becoming more prone to wrinkling and sagging. One of the places where this is most prominent is in your cheeks.

When you receive this injectable, you’ll get fullness put back into your cheeks, giving you a more youthful and supple look. Doing this will also help to lift sagging skin, getting rid of jowls.

Lines on the Forehead

It’s very common to see wrinkles appear on your forehead. When these wrinkles begin to appear, you’ll notice that you look far older than you may really be.

You can smooth out the appearance of these wrinkles by getting this injectable. The filler will put more volume into your forehead, replacing the volume you’ve lost with age and take up space beneath the skin, smoothing out the wrinkles on top.

Crow’s Feet

One of the most common places that you’ll get wrinkles is the area around your eyes. That’s due in large part to the fact that the skin around your eyes is far thinner than it is on the rest of your face. This makes it more prone to common signs of aging, and one of the first places where you’ll see wrinkles and lines like crow’s feet.

If you’re looking to get rid of your crow’s feet, then this filler is a great option. You’ll look younger and feel much better about your appearance.

Hollow Under-Eyes

While losing volume happens all over your face and body, there are some areas where it tends to be more obvious than others. One of these places is the area underneath your eyes. When this area becomes hollow, it can make you look old and very tired.

This filler will help put fullness into the area, getting rid of the hollowness, bags, and making your eyes look brighter and more alert.

Frown Lines

The 11-shaped lines between your eyebrows that form when you crease your brow will eventually become permanent and deepen over time. These particular wrinkles are called frown lines and will age your appearance considerably.

You can use this filler to fill in the area, smoothing out the frown lines between your eyebrows and giving you a much more relaxed and overall happier appearance.

Thin Lips

The way your mouth looks can have a big impact on the rest of your appearance. Thin lips will make you look very serious and austere, will larger, full lips can make you look more youthful and inviting.

Some people have always had particularly thin lips or your lips have lost volume due to aging, getting this filler can help them appear plumper and fuller.

Jawline

Having a weak jawline can make your appearance bland. There are certainly plenty of surgical procedures you can go through to help add more definition to your jaw.

But if you’re looking for a non-invasive and less painful way to get a more defined jaw, then this injectable is a fantastic way to do that.

Acne Scars

If you’ve had or currently have issues with acne, then you know exactly how frustrating, uncomfortable, and even painful this issue can be. Even once you’ve managed to clear your acne up, the scars left behind can cause a lot of emotional distress.

One of the things that makes this filler so unique is that it can treat some types of acne scars, allowing you to feel much more confident in your skin.

Pre-Treatment

Before we make an appointment for your treatment, we’ll set up a consultation for you. Your consultation gives us the chance to get to know you and what your concerns are. It helps us determine whether or not this treatment is right for you as we go over your medical history.

Once your consultation is finished, we can set you up with your appointment. Before your appointment comes, there are a few things you’ll need to do.

Preparing for Treatment

If you want your treatment to be as safe and as effective as it can be, then there are a few things you’ll need to be mindful of. We’ll give you a full list of instructions before your appointment arrives.

Some of the things we may request that you do include avoiding certain substances like tobacco and alcohol for the day or two before your treatment. You’ll also need to stop taking certain medications about a week or so before your appointment that could cause thinning of the blood. This includes aspirin and ibuprofen.

The Treatment

When the day of your appointment arrives, we’ll make sure that every step of your treatment process is both safe and comfortable. Before we can start injecting the product into your desired areas, we will prepare your skin by first carefully cleaning it.

After your skin is cleaned, we’ll start injecting the filler. This product contains lidocaine, a painkiller. This will help your treatment process stay pain-free. You may simply feel a slight pinching sensation as the injection is applied. Depending on how many injections are necessary, your appointment should last somewhere between 15 to 60 minutes.

Recovery

Because this treatment is non-invasive, there is minimal recovery that needs to take place afterward. As soon as your treatment is finished, you’ll be able to get back to your busy life. There are just a few things you’ll need to do afterward to ensure your skin heals properly.

Continue avoiding alcohol and tobacco after your treatment. You’ll also need to keep from performing any strenuous physical activity and stay away from direct exposure to sunlight.

When Will I See Results?

Immediately after your treatment is finished, you’ll notice a difference in the way your skin looks. You’ll find it fuller and plumper as the product takes up space and begins smoothing out wrinkles and lines. Over the next week or so, these results will be even more obvious.

As for how long your treatment will last, that depends on the type of Belotero used as well as the area where it’s been injected. Most patients can expect to enjoy the results from their treatment for anywhere between 6 to 18 months.
