What is Belotero?
Belotero has been designed from bio-fermentation hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally present in our body; which the makers claim makes it safe and completely biocompatible, as well as wholly biodegradable.
How is it made? It is created using Cohesive Polydensified Matrix (CPM)technology, a unique process that gives Belotero hylauronic acid unusual elasticity; (this technolology adds to its “mono-phasic” nature).
Belotero, therefore, guarantees a considerably better result from the first hours after the injection and over the initial months, in terms of increased volume and wrinkle filling compared to “biphasic” products.
Belotero is prepared from non-animal, hyaluronic acid NaHA by a patented dynamic reticulation process. The unique poly-densified cohesive structure of Belotero consists of a cohesive gel that is easy to inject through a small-diameter needle
Reported side effects Transient erythema (redness), swelling, pain, itching, discoloration or tenderness at the implant site. Typically resolution is spontaneous, within one or two days after injection into the skin, and within a week after injection into the lips.
The manufacturers state that there is no risk of granulomas and no risk of a ‘lump effect’ – although the product may be too new to identify these rare reactions which can occur with other hyaluronic acid fillers.
