Are you a Gainesville, FL resident who is looking older than you should because of thinning lips or the appearance of vertical lines around your lips? It can be difficult to hide vertical lines that appear above and below the lips using makeup, and they can actually become more prominent when lipstick is applied and seeps into them. A product called Belotero® is ideal for adding volume for the correction of lines and wrinkles around your lips. A treatment with Belotero® can enhance the appearance of your lips by contributing volume, structure, and shape. This treatment offers results that appear very soft and natural.
What is Belotero®?
Belotero® is an injectable filler that was approved by the FDA for the correction of facial wrinkles and folds. It has been proven to be extremely effective as a wrinkle treatment for the lips when administered by trained professionals in the proper setting.
The product can be injected around your mouth to smooth out lines and wrinkles around the lips. It can also be used for the correction of nasolabial folds and marionette lines that appear around the mouth area. It contains hyaluronic acid and lidocaine.
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally-occurring substance found in connective tissue like skin. Hyaluronic acid molecules act like a sponge to hold and absorb water. This is what adds volume and hydration to your skin, which tends to prevent the formation of fine lines and wrinkles.
How Does Belotero® Work?
The hyaluronic acid contained in Belotero® can contribute to lip fullness and fill in lines and wrinkles to offer you a more vibrant and youthful look. The product is unique in that it is a special formula that offers a smoothly flowing gel that can be injected to soften lines and wrinkles around the lip and mouth area.
