When we are very young, our skin is smooth, supple, and firm. Once we reach adulthood, however, the vital substances naturally produced by the body to moisturize and nourish the skin diminish and we begin to experience the breakdown of support beneath the skin. The volume that once gave us a youthful look decreases with every passing year, leading to sagging skin, sunken features, fine lines, and creases. The process of aging is only exacerbated by environmental and lifestyle factors.
The effects of age and environmental factors can make you look tired and generally unpleasant. When you want to revive your youthful appearance without looking “done,” a visit to Washington Dermatology Consultants for Belotero can lead to the solution you’ve been looking for.
In our Arlington or Stafford dermatology office, a consultation with Dr. Kenneth Neal will give you the opportunity to discuss your concerns with someone who understands. During consultations, Dr. Neal provides treatment options, and discusses the importance of realistic expectations from any type of cosmetic dermatological treatment.
Belotero is a cosmetic injectable solution based on hyaluronic acid. This substance exists naturally in the body and so produces no adverse side effects when injected into areas of the face. Belotero is a highly versatile solution that can produce beautiful results after just one treatment. Within twenty minutes in our office, a patient may experience the significant reduction in the appearance of lines on the hands, décolletage, and face. Belotero may be used on crow’s feet, frown lines, smoker’s lines, laugh lines, marionette lines, or plumping the lips. It may even be used on the cheekbones and the bridge of the nose. Due to its characteristics, Belotero may be used with other cosmetic injectables such as dermal fillers or Botox for dramatic results.
Within the dermal tissues, Belotero moisturizes and volumizes beautifully, greatly improving the contours of the face. More than fifty percent of patients who received Belotero in clinical trials reported results lasting nine months. As results fade, touch up treatments may be scheduled to retain a youthful, vibrant appearance.
Belotero has been used in the US since 2011 and in the UK for several more years. This non-animal based, biocompatible product requires no allergy testing and no down time.
